Throughout the early part of this year I was involved in the technical review of a new ADF Book; Oracle ADF Enterprise Application Development - Made Simple (PACKT Press ISBN 978-1-849681-88-9), authored by Oracle ACE Director Sten Versterli. Sten and I subsequently went on to do a podcast on the same subject. Well, as of a couple of weeks ago the book is now available for real and I've gotten my hands on a final copy to re-read, something which I've been doing over the last week or so.
I have to say that this is a book which I really really like. I think the approach is spot on in terms of what the book covers and the tone. It's not attempting to re-hash the well trodden material that has already been covered in the doc set or some of the other books out there. Rather it takes a much more pragmatic and practical approach to the tasks involved in really building out a practical ADF application in a team development environment, going beyond the coding mechanics and APIs into the practicalities. A lot of Sten's real world experience is really shining through here, and it's great advice to listen to.
I'd say this one is a must for any team leader or architect about to start their first ADF project in earnest.
