Dashboard Applications with JavaScript & Oracle JET

Geertjan Wielenga

When you're faced with a new technology, even with a new technology that's basically a bundling of existing techniques and solutions such as in this case Oracle JET, an initial question to ask is: "What's its sweet spot?"

To me, in the case of Oracle JET, a clear sweet spot is browser-based dashboard applications, whether for the desktop browser or on mobile devices. Over the last few days of assembling a variety of Google search technologies into a single application, I can't imagine a more sensible way of doing so in JavaScript than to combine the strengths of Knockout and Require, together with the out-of-the-box architecture and components made available by Oracle JET.

Here's where the application is right now in terms of its user interface: 

Each segment you see above is provided by a different JET module, while the list and the chart are both JET components.

Creating a dashboard/monitoring application for the browser? Try Oracle JET. It's a good fit for your needs.

    Thank you Geertjan! This looks very promising! I've actually created a number of dashboards like this in the past, but mostly had to roll out my own solutions, and it looks like Oracle JET might be a very good fit for future dashboards!
