Faster and Simpler Java-based Application Development - Now Free
Oracle ADF Essentials is an end-to-end Java EE framework that simplifies application development by providing out-of-the-box infrastructure services and a visual and declarative development experience. Oracle ADF Essentials is free to develop and deploy.
My team has developed about a weeks worth of ADF training material under the title ADF Insider and ADF Insider Essentials. This is available from our page on OTN. But we are now loading all our content on YouTube as well so the content can now be accessed on iPads. Over the next couple of weeks we'll also add these YouTube links to the OTN page but in the meantime, if you have an interest in ADF I strongly urge you to subscribe to our ADFInsiderEssentials YouTube Channel so you can be alerted when new content comes on line.
Please also provide your comments, thumbs up/down, and let us know what content/topics is of your interest.
GlassFish Extension for Oracle JDeveloper by Shay Shmeltzer
We just release a new version of Oracle JDeveloper - 184.108.40.206.
One new feature here is built-in support for GlassFish. This include the ability to create an "application server" connection to GlassFish and then deploy to that server with one click from inside JDeveloper. You can use this for deploying Oracle ADF Essentials application on Glassfish, but you can also use it to deploy any Java EE application you build in JDeveloper on GlassFish.
However, if you are planning to work with GlassFish and JDeveloper on a more regular basis as your development server, then you might find my new extension useful.
The new extension allows you to start and stop an external GlassFish instance, as well as start it in debug mode (which will allow JDeveloper to remotely debug your application as it runs on the server. I also added a button that will invoke the web admin console of Glassfish.
