Developing for the Digital Enterprise: Extending your ADF Applications to Mobile at Fusion Middleware Partner Community Forum 2015

The Fusion Middleware Partner Community Forum takes place March 3rd & 4th in Budapest Hungary. During this annual conference You as an Oracle Partner can get the latest updates on the Fusion Middleware 12c solutions. “The Cloud Platform for Digital Business” will be the theme of the 20th conference. Keynotes will be delivered from Amit Zavery, Andrew Sutherland and SOA, BPM and Mobile product management including live demos. On the second day you can choose between three tracks: SOA, BPM or WebLogic and Mobile. As part of the Mobile & Weblogic track Frank will present:

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."

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).

Region Extreme: Multi-Task-Flow Binding By Frank Nimphius

Render an unknown number of task flows in page or dashboard regions.
Oracle Application Development Framework (Oracle ADF) regions display the contents of bounded task flows in designated areas on a page. Each region uses a special binding configuration—the task flow binding—in the Executables section of the parent page’s PageDef.xml file to populate the region content with data from the Oracle ADF binding layer.


In use cases such as analytic dashboards, the contents of an unknown number of task flows must be displayed as regions at runtime. However, Oracle ADF regions cannot be created at runtime. Multi-task-flow binding in Oracle JDeveloper 11g Release 2 and Oracle JDeveloper 12c addresses this limitation. Using a hands-on exercise, this article shows developers how to use multi-task-flow binding in Oracle ADF applications. Parts of the sample application have been prebuilt to give you a head start. In addition to performing the hands-on steps, you can learn more by examining the source files.
To begin, download the sample application and unzip the o44adf-2197040.zip file to a local folder on your computer. Do not use spaces in the folder name. Ensure that you’re using the studio edition of Oracle JDeveloper 12c (12.1.2.0.0) or later, available as a free download on Oracle Technology Network.
Static, Dynamic, Multiple
The multi-task-flow binding feature is a combination of the static and dynamic task-flow-binding types used in Oracle JDeveloper to associate region content with the Oracle ADF binding layer and lifecycle.
A static region uses a dedicated task flow binding added to the PageDef.xml file of the parent page to associate the region content with a bounded task flow. The task flow binding contains a static reference to the bounded task flow to be exposed in the region.
Dynamic regions also use a dedicated task flow binding, which uses a property reference to a managed bean in view scope to provide the task flow reference information. The managed bean is accessible from Java code and through expression language (EL). The task flow reference returned by the managed bean property can be changed at runtime for the region to display the contents of different task flows sequentially.
In multi-task-flow binding, the multi-TaskFlow binding element provides the region component model for multiple Oracle ADF region instances that are created at runtime with the af:forEach loop tag of the Oracle ADF Faces feature of Oracle ADF. Each region obtains its bounded task flow configuration reference from a managed bean. As with dynamic regions, the content of the managed bean can be changed at runtime, thereby enabling the display at runtime of an unknown-at-design-time number of task flows in regions. The region binding is appropriate for uses such as dashboards that display varying numbers of bounded task flows on a page. Read the complete article here.

ADF Development – Performance and Tuning – Overview

ADF Architecture TV channel is a training course to extend customers' knowledge in ADF, it is not a marketing or promotional exercise from Oracle Corporation. If you've arrived on this episode by Googling in, please make sure to look at all of the content on the TV channel rather than taking this episode as a standalone topic.
This episode: This recordings provides an introduction to performance testing and tuning of Oracle ADF applications. It describes the non-technical baseline and gives you a heads up on what to consider when tuning Oracle ADF applications. In two following-up recordings we drill down into the technical tuning options that exist on the ADF Business Components, the task flow and the user interface layer.

ADF The Next Big Wave by Frank Nimphius

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.
