Building Java EE in the Cloud–Webcast August 30th 2012

Building Java EE in the Cloud

Thursday, August 30, 2012 at 10:00 AM PDT

While cloud computing is making big strides, there are challenges in enterprises to start meaningful adoption of the technology. Steps to cloud adoption by the enterprises are different - often with varying results. Some choose to optimize current applications with basic steps, resulting in minimal benefits. Others transform the entire portfolio, with a complete architecture overhaul, and build business agility as a result. Join Anand Kothari, Principal Product Manager for Oracle Cloud Java Service and Larry Carvalho, Principal Analyst at Robust Cloud, LLC as they discuss the evolution of the cloud, and how Oracle Cloud Java Service enables enterprises to make transformational changes.

Speakers: Anand Kothari and Larry Carvalho

ADF Samples – Table of Contents

This project stores, lists and categorizes ADF samples created by various members of the ADF EMG. The samples may be undocumented, with only a small description in the page, or might be created as part of an article or blog post. In the latter case, an clip_image002link to this documentation is provided with the sample. For easy reference all samples have a unique identifier consisting of the author initials and a sequence number. The idea is that the ADF EMG community as a whole owns these sample pages, so if you know of samples that should be added, please register for this project and update the wiki page. The source code of the samples can be hosted in this project as well, using the SVN repository, so feel free to upload your own samples in this project! The advantage of having all samples as much as possible stored in this project is that we will not have broken links when an author moves his blog to another location. In addition, you can easily download all samples at once using the SVN update command.

This wiki currently contains samples from the following authors:

Playing with ADF Task Flows in OEPE 11.1.1.8 by Edwin Biemond

Oracle released the Oracle Enterprise Pack for Eclipse 11g R1 (11.1.1.8, New October 2011 ) which supports ADF Rich Faces with ADF Task Flow development. To see all the new features you can go this page for all the ADF or Oracle Cloud feature list.
In this blogpost I will show you some steps how to make your own ADF Web application in OEPE.
Before you can start you should know that the ADF application in OEPE uses JPA as model ( eclipselink), ADF BC can be used but only on runtime and you should already have WebLogic PS3 or higher installed ( together the ADF runtime option).
This OEPE release does not have ADF wizard for ADF BC or for ADF Datacontrols but the support for ADF Task Flows is a big step forward.
Let's start.
Start with a new Oracle ADF Application… click here to read the full article & ADF development with Eclipse (OEPE).

Performance Audit Tool - Runtime Diagnosis for ADF Applications by Red Samurai

To tune ADF application, we need to know exactly what is the reason for performance bottleneck. In Red Samurai we are helping our customer to be happy with ADF. How we do that? Yes - hard quality work (and no bla bla talking) is one of the most important things. But also we use tools - one of such tools is in house developed ADF Runtime Performance Audit tool.
Before blaming ADF is slow, make sure to check the way data is retrieved from DB, also SQL execution performance. I agree, its not always easy to monitor DB/SQL performance for ADF applications. This is the main reason we have developed this tool.
Our tool splits into two parts - Audit Engine (6 KB JAR file) and Performance Audit Dashboard. Customer application needs to include only Audit Engine, the rest happens as magic - information about slow SQL starts to come to dashboard automatically. Tool is universal and runs in development, test and production environments.
Performance Audit Dashboard interface:


Main areas for performance bottleneck and tuning related to DB/SQL in ADF:
1. SQL time execution in DB. While SQL executes, ADF waits for response - we want as fast SQL execution as possible.

2. Duplicate SQL execution. Obviously we want to avoid duplicate SQL execution.

3. SQL count query execution. ADF invokes separate SQL count query to estimate rowset size, this may slow down performance for complex queries.

4. Resultset Fetch size. When fetching lots of records from DB, ADF is using more memory to create and maintain rowset, this potentially slows down application.

5. Passivation/Activation time. One of the slowest operations - need to monitor and avoid as much as possible.
Performance Audit Dashboard offers two charts for performance audit overview:
1. Type of Issues pie chart with selection in time
2. Monthly Issues tracking linear chart
List with issues displays:
1. Issue type
2. SQL execution time
3. Issue details
4. Issue date
5. Application/View Object name related to the issue
6. User name, ADF Web user who was triggering SQL from ADF application
Details section displays more detailed info, such as SQL query or complete info about large rowset fetch.
There is option to change audit parameters on the fly.
We are on track to innovate and improve ADF applications quality, this tool is newest addition to our other tools:
1. Red Samurai MDS Cleaner V2.0
2. JDeveloper 11g Extension to Validate ADF Code Quality
Red Samurai Performance Audit is available free of charge (existing/future Red Samurai customers).

ADF newsletter & ADF OEPE

This months major topic is ADF: New Newsletter for Oracle ADF Developers! Good news for Oracle ADF developers: we have a new bimonthly newsletter, just for you. Get the most value out of Oracle ADF with tech tips and news. To subscribe, simply tick the appropriate checkbox in MyProfile.

OEPE with ADF binding support available: Total Eclipse by Frank Nimphius

The current release of Oracle Enterprise Pack for Eclipse, though in technology preview, brings Oracle ADF binding to the Eclipse IDE. You can download the Software from the link below:
Oracle Enterprise Pack for Eclipse (12.1.1.1.0) Technical Preview New June 2012 Certified on Windows 7/XP/Vista, MacOS, and Linux. Supported on JDK 6.
For many Eclipse users, ADF is new and therefore I expect them to need guidance and help in case they run into issues they don't know how to recover from. Similar, ADF users familiar with Oracle JDeveloper that want to give OEPE a try, will find things different in Eclipse and thus may have questions.
For both audiences I suggest to post issues to the OEPE forum on the Oracle Technology Network: I'll extend my OTN monitoring to include the OEPE forum on a daily basis to learn about developer needs, requirements and - of course - to catch bugs that need to be filed. From my side this is a part-time involvement, which means that the more ADF questions show on the forum, the more help I could need in answering them. The OTN forum for JDeveloper in my opnion wouldn't be the right place to go to unless the question is a generic ADF question that is not dependent on the integration in Eclipse.

Here's the OEPE forum link for a start
