MAF 2.0 : Loading Images in a Background Process – Part I by Luc Bors

clip_image002Images are heavily used in Mobile apps. For instance a list that contains employees usually shows the images of these employees. This works well when you have a WIFI connection, but what if you are using slower connections ? If you look at a mobile twitter app you will see that, depending on connectivity, images are loaded instantaneously or delayed. In this post I explain how you can load the images of a List in a background process, after the other content has been loaded.

As mentioned before, a twitter client is able to defer the loading of images whenever a slow connection is detected. You are able to read the content as soon as it is loaded, and the images will show up with a delay, one at a time. Read the complete article here.

Developing for the Digital Enterprise: Extending your ADF Applications to Mobile

Cloud computing and mobile are two new horizons showing for Oracle ADF developers. If you like it or not, the world of information technology has started to change, shifting its weight towards mobility everywhere and for everyone with a strong push for public Clouds. This session is not a statement of direction for Oracle ADF but discusses the options you as ADF developers have when travelling towards one or both of the new horizons. Come with pen and paper to learn about what you can change, what you may want to keep and which new skills you need to put onto your skill wish-list."

How Oracle MAF modernized a Legacy System by Luc Bors


clip_image002There is a growing demand to access enterprise data from mobile devices. Usually to support multiple devices, multiple applications need to be developed using multiple languages. Oracle Mobile Application Framework allows you to create one single application, that runs on multiple mobile device platforms based on a single code base. Oracle MAF leverages the existing development skills of both Oracle ADF and Java developers and enabled the development team of BCPRA (British Columbia Provincial Renal Agency) to create PROMIS Lite.
PROMIS (Patient Records and Outcome Management Information System) Lite gives authorized users, such as nurses, doctors and surgeons mobile access to a subset of patient information such as medication and lab test results. In this session you will learn how this app evolved from a brainwave at the office to a real on device app. You will see the entire process, from business case to requirements and from development to device. The result is amazing as you will learn from the demo at the end of this session. Get the presentation here.

Mobile Application Framework by Frank Nimphius


clip_image002Share information among features in Oracle Mobile Application Framework.

Oracle Mobile Application Framework is the successor framework to Oracle Application Development Framework Mobile (Oracle ADF Mobile) for building on-device applications for iOS and Android platforms. This article steps you through one way to perform a common developer task in Oracle Mobile Application Framework: sharing information among Application Mobile XML (AMX) features.

A feature in Oracle Mobile Application Framework is a unit of work—a single piece of application functionality that users can access from the mobile application springboard. An example of a feature is a product catalog in which users can query and select items to buy. AMX is one of three technologies that you can use to develop features in Oracle Mobile Application Framework.

Oracle Mobile Application Framework mobile applications can be developed in Oracle JDeveloper with the Oracle Mobile Application Framework extension, or in Eclipse with Oracle Enterprise Pack for Eclipse. In this article’s hands-on exercise, you’ll use Oracle JDeveloper and Oracle Mobile Application Framework to implement a customers feature that shares information about the selected customer with an orders feature.

Architecture Overview

Figure 1 shows a simplified architecture diagram for Oracle Mobile Application Framework. A mobile application built with Oracle Mobile Application Framework is compiled into a platform-specific container that is then deployed to a mobile device. From the perspective of the device, the container makes the application appear to be written in the device’s native OS language (Objective-C for iOS or Java for Android).

This content is a part of a 1 day Oracle Mobile Application Framework (MAF) hands on lab workshop, intended for Oracle staff to teach customers the basics of MAF.  It is not intended as a complete course, and neither is it a direct sales exercise.  Rather it is educational in nature to get developers who are not familiar with ADF (or ADF/JSF which MAF was originally based on) up to speed with developing the very basics.
 
clip_image002The overall 1 day course includes the following PPTs:
·         00-v1.0-MAF-1Day-Agenda.pptx
·         01-v1.0-MAF-1Day-Mobile-Landscape.pptx
·         02-v1.0-MAF-1Day-Overview.pptx
·         03-v1.0-MAF-1Day-Design.pptx
·         04-v1.0-MAF-1Day-AMX-Pages.pptx
·         05-v1.0-MAF-1Day-AMX-Programming.pptx
·         06-v1.0-MAF-1Day-AMX-Component-Showcase.pptx
·         07-v1.0-MAF-1Day-Data-Controls.pptx
·         08-v1.0-MAF-1Day-Web-Service-(Optional).pptx
·         09-v1.0-MAF-1Day-SQLite-(Optional).pptx
·         10-v1.0-MAF-1Day-Device-Integration.pptx
·         11-v1.0-MAF-1Day-Setup-(Optional).pptx
 
It is intended as part of the hands on lab, the following online OTN tutorial is use.

Mobile and Social login connections in Oracle MAF: a few hints to install the server-side components by Blueberry Coder

clip_image002Of all the new security-related features introduced in the Oracle Mobile Application Framework, the most interesting ones are in my opinion support for the OAuth 2.0 protocol and the tight integration to Oracle's identity management solutions. The former enables you to build MAF applications that will integrate with popular public APIs, such as the ones offered by Google and Facebook. The latter makes the implementation of comprehensive access control scenarios significantly easier, while keeping things extremely simple in a developer perspective. This is all thanks to the Oracle Access Management Mobile and Social (OAMMS) component of IDM. Don't believe me? Have a look at this recording I made for the Oracle Mobile Platform channel on YouTube.

If you want to try OAMMS for yourself, you will need to install it in your own environment. Overall, the process is fairly painless and is similar to other Fusion Middleware products. However, there are a few things should be aware of. Here are a few hints to guide you along the way.

  1. You need at least IDM 11gR2 PS2
    In other words, MAF is certified with OAMMS 11.1.2.2 or later. Ensure you download the correct version!
  2. Use JDK 7
    Java 8 has been with us for more than a year now. Public updates for Java 6, on the other hand, have stopped back in... 2011. If you were installing a production server today, I would strongly recommend you to use Java 7.
    Oracle WebLogic Server 10.3.6 is certified for use with Java 7 on Windows, Linux and other platforms. The official documentation explains at length how to use both together. The critical part is to ensure to override some of the standard JDK classes with ones provided with Weblogic: Read the complete article here

MAF Skinning by Deepak Jain

clip_image001I tried two ways of doing skinning in MAF.

1. Using skin-addition

a. Open maf-skins.xml from ApplicationController project -> Application Sources -> META-INF
Drag and drop skin-addition from the component pallette, your file will look something like this:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
<adfmf-skins xmlns="http://xmlns.oracle.com/adf/mf/skin">
<skin-addition id="s1">
<skin-id>mobileAlta-v1.1</skin-id>
<style-sheet-name>resources/css/test.css</style-sheet-name>
</skin-addition>
</adfmf-skins>

test.css needs to be created inside Web Content folder.

b. Now in test.css you can add additional changes, so apart from mobileAlta the changes in your css will also get applied. Read the complete article here.
