o63adf-fig2In his article “The Latest Infographics: Mobile Business Statistics for 2012,” Mark Fidelman, a contributing writer to the Forbes website, presents several interesting facts and statistics about the current and predicted future usage of mobile devices. A clear trend in this article is that business is “going” mobile and that in only a few years, the number of mobile devices will significantly outnumber that of wired devices and PCs used at work and at home. One message to extrapolate from this is that mobile application development is the next big wave in enterprise application development.

However, enterprise developers adding mobile as an access channel to enterprise business systems need to maintain the same data validation, business logic, and security levels as for traditional applications. And the mobile world is a diverse set of platforms and operating systems - a far more complex landscape than the four or five browsers that developers have had to support in enterprise web-enabled solutions of the past.

For enterprise application developers, a promising strategy for conquering these “go mobile” challenges is to embark on a hybrid mobile development approach that replaces the burden of device-specific native programming with a consistent development model that uses standard technologies such as HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and Java and can be run across multiple platforms. One development tool suited for such a hybrid mobile application strategy is the Oracle ADF Mobile feature of Oracle Application Development Framework (Oracle ADF).

This article introduces Oracle ADF Mobile and presents a hands-on mobile development and deployment exercise. Read the complete article here.
