At a recent Oracle virtual developer day I presented a session on "Oracle ADF For Forms and PL/SQL Developers – Why it’s the right choice". In this presentation I talk about why you might be considering ADF, the challenges of re-education and what opporuntinies you might be able to realise by choosing ADF.
If you are considering ADF, this might be an interesting watch to arm you with some relevant facts.

Seemingly randomly I started having errors trying to deploy an ADF Mobile application to my Nexus 7 tablet. I was getting
[10:28:07 AM] Shutting down Android Debug Bridge server...
[10:28:07 AM] Deployment cancelled.
[10:28:07 AM] ---- Deployment incomplete ----.
[10:28:07 AM] Failed to detect a connected Android device. Make sure the device is connected. Otherwise, manually restart the ADB server. The following results were provided by ADB:
List of devices attached
But in addition, I also noted that some software I was using to view the Nexus on my PC was also not finding the tablet. I also couldn't see the tablet on the Windows Explorer window - so, something somewhere outside of JDeveloper seemed to be the problem.
What I did to fix this was the following
- From the Windows Start I ran devmgmt.msc and from here I found "Android Composite ADB Device" - I double clicked on this to chose to uninstall AND delete the driver.
- I then re-connected the Nexus and it started to install the driver. I got an error here but I pressed on regardless since now at least Windows Explorer could see the device although JDeveloper couldn't
- I made sure USB Debugging was ON on the tablet AND I also switch off Media Device (MTP) which is a USB connection option.
The combination of the above and the luck of the gods seemed to have got things working.
