Reading MAF iOS Simulator Logging Output by Andrejus Baranovskis

clip_image002It could be very handy to know how and where to read MAF logging output from iOS simulator. This is not that obvious to find logging output on Mac OS system. All log is written into application.log file, this file is located inside temporary application directory. I will explain how to locate this directory and how to open application.log file. You can read more about MAF testing and logging here - 18.5 Using and Configuring Logging.
Sample mobile application - ADFMobileLogginApp.zip, is pretty basic and contains System.out.println to write a message into application.log file: Read the complete article here.

MAF 2.0: Using Local Database by Waslley Souza

clip_image001

When you are building a MAF application, you may decide to use Web Services (SOAP / REST) or local Database to retrieve or persist your data. If you decide to use local Database, the SQLite is the default Database of MAF. SQLite is designed for use as an embedded database system, one typically used by a single user and often linked directly into the application. It is ACID-compliant, lightweight and portable.

In this post I will create a CRUD of employees in Oracle MAF 2.0 using SQLite Database. Download the sample application: MAFDBApp.zip.

This article was published on OTN LA in brazilian portuguese, and you can read it here: Oracle Mobile Application Framework 2.0: Usando Banco de Dados Local.

Create a Mobile Application Framework Application, and name it as MAFDBApp. Read the complete article here.

Mobile Suite – Web Service Performance Optimisation with Result Caching by Andrejus Baranovskis

clip_image002One of the main advantages of Oracle Mobile Suite - Service Bus and SOAP/REST web service transformation (more here - Oracle Mobile Suite Service Bus REST and ADF BC SOAP). In addition you will get very nice performance improvement, there is out of the box caching for Web Service resultset with Coherence. I'm going to demonstrate how it works, all out of the box - really simple.
You could define caching for external service (ADF BC SOAP web service in my case), just edit service definition. This is our business service running on WebLogic backend, where actual processing happens. Naturally we would like to eliminate duplicate calls and retrieve previous resultsets from cache stored in Service Bus layer: Read the complete article here.

Building Mobile Applications with Oracle Mobile Application Framework free Oracle Tutorial

clip_image002 In this tutorial, you use Oracle JDeveloper and Oracle MAF to build and deploy a mobile application. The application uses a simple Java class to store the data and displays a list of employees on one page and a graph of salaries on another. As you build the application, you will add MAF layout components to further control and customize the behavior of the application.

In Part 2 of the tutorial, you add specific device integration to your application. In Part 3, you add a call to a web service that accepts arguments and upgrades the salary of an employee. Get the Tutorial here.

An interview with enterprise mobility lead Luc Bors by Chris Muir


clip_image002Mobility expert Luc Bors from AMIS Netherlands recently published via McGraw-
Hill the Oracle Mobile Application Developer Guide, the very first book to come out about Oracle's Mobile Application Framwork (MAF) since its release earlier this year. Following on from my previous articles on Oracle mobile leaders, in this Q&A article we interviewed Luc to share his insights into the world of Oracle mobility with you.

Firstly Luc, congratulations on publishing your book on Oracle's Mobile Application Framework. This must have been a big achievement for you?

Luc: Thanks Chris. This was definitely a big achievement for me. It was hard work and it took a lot of my spare time. I will never forget the moment when I submitted my final chapter and, some 3 months later, the moment the shipment with my book in print arrived. It felt great! I was finally able to hold the book in my hands.

Great work. If we can take a few steps back, I've had the pleasure of knowing you for a few years when you've presented at conferences around the world, but for the audience can you please introduce yourself, your role and organization you work for?

Luc: My name is Luc Bors. I am an Oracle ACE and I work as a principal consultant for AMIS Services in the Netherlands. AMIS is a consulting company where expertise is key. This is evident in our profound knowledge of the complete Oracle technology stack. With nearly 100 employees we not only work for customers in the Netherlands, but also offer expert services throughout the world.

What’s your background before working on mobile solutions?

Luc: Actually I do not have a background in IT at all. I have a master’s degree in Genetic Engineering from Wageningen University. During my years in university I already developed an affinity to computer science as I was using and altering highly sophisticated software for statistical analysis. After graduating it did not take much time and effort to switch from Bio Technology to Information Technology. Both were emerging technologies in the 90’s and that is where my passion lies: new technologies. I started as an Oracle Forms and PL/SQL Developer in 1997 and about 8 years ago I switched to Java and Oracle ADF. I have been involved in many ADF projects, both greenfield ADF implementations and Forms to ADF modernization projects. First as developer, later as technical team lead and architect.

And today what’s your main focus?

Luc: Today my main focus is ADF architecture and mobile solutions based on the Oracle Mobile Application Framework. I tend to combine both and use the power of both frameworks in the context of enterprise mobility.

As a developer, what’s changed since you took up the “mobile first” mantra?

Luc: The first time I took up a mobile challenge was actually quite some years ago. In a proof of concept for a retailer I created a solution for handheld scanners that called out to a web service to find the stock for articles with a given barcode. Back in those days nobody had heard of “mobile first”. Read the complete interview here.

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.
