We are happy to announce the new Oracle ADF Essentials - a
free to develop and deploy version of the core technologies at the base of
Oracle ADF – Oracle’s strategic
development framework that was used, among other things, to build the new
generation of the enterprise Oracle Fusion Applications.
This release is
aligned with the new Oracle JDeveloper 184.108.40.206 version that we released today.
Oracle ADF Essentials enables developers to use the

internalization, accessibility and touch gestures and providing advanced
Ajax, windowing, drag and drop and other UI capabilities in a declarative
- Oracle ADF Controller – an
extension on top of the JSF controller providing complete process flow
definition and enabling advanced reusability of flows inside page’s
- Oracle ADF Binding – a
declarative way to bind various business services to JSF user interfaces
eliminating tedious managed-beans coding.
- Oracle ADF Business

The main goal of Oracle ADF Essentials is to bring the benefits of Oracle ADF to a broader community of developers. If you are
already using Oracle ADF, a key new functionality for you would be the
ability to deploy your application on GlassFish.
- We provide
instructions for deployment of Oracle ADF Essentials on GlassFish and
officially support this platform for Oracle ADF Essentials deployment.
- Developers can choose to
use the whole Oracle ADF Essentials, or just pieces of the technology.

Oracle ADF Essentials is provided in Oracle JDeveloper. Eclipse support
via Oracle Enterprise for Eclipse (OEPE) is also planned.
