New: Check-out the ADF Architecture TV Channel on Youtube

The new Oracle ADF TV channel - or ADF Architecture TV channel - on YouTube is a direct outcome of the "Real World ADF Design & Architecture Principles" training Oracle Product Management built over the last year and a half.

This channel is free and publishes, week by week, episode by episode, a huge array of short, distinct topics as relating to all parts of the ADF development lifecycle, from planning, to design, to development, deployment and delivery.  All in all we have current plans for near 100 episodes.

The complete set of topics to be covered is currently indexed on the ADF Architecture Square for you to check out.  We’ve already published episodes on the YouTube channel so you can get a taste of what's to come, which you can enjoy from either work with a small time investment each week, or even from your iPad/Android tablet at home.


Important to mention to you that this channel is all about stuff and no fluff. This said, its not an ADF overview or sales pitch to Oracle ADF, nor is it a beginner training to start learning ADF.

The goal of this training is to accelerate your skills and understanding of ADF beyond drag and drop and thus teaches to think ADF.

Personally I wished we had such a training from the early days on. But in this case late is better than never and I am sure what we produced will turn out to be a great help for you. Check it out and also make sure you subscribe to the channel to receive updates whenever we upload a new episode.

ADF EMG Sunday at OOW 2012 (30. Sep 2012) - A day full of content

I do know what I am doing on Sunday September 30 2012 at OOW - how about you ? Well, I am sitting in the back of a room packed with ADF enthusiasts at the ADF EMG Sunday session at Moscone South room 305. Chris Muir managed to get a full day track for the EMG on that Sunday, which I know was a lot of work. In addition a he got lots of good speakers with interesting topics lined up.

The below is copied from Chris' announcement at: https://blogs.oracle.com/onesizedoesntfitall/entry/the_year_after_the_year :

On the user group Sunday 30th of September the ADF EMG has a full day of sessions for anybody interested in ADF.  The collective sessions are designed to have something for everyone, ADF beginners, ADF experts, all.  All sessions will be held in Moscone South room 305.

To start out with for OOW attendees coming from a Forms background, Gert Poel and Pieter Gillis from iAdvise will give us the lowdown on ADF for Forms programmers.  This is a very important presentation for the beginners in the ADF community who are coming from a Forms background: 

1) UGF3783 - Oracle ADF Immersion: How an Oracle Forms Developer Immersed Himself in the Oracle ADF World - 9am-10am Moscone South room 305 

At the other end of the spectrum for EMG members who are looking to expand their ADF skills beyond the basics, Aino Andriessen from AMIS will be looking at using Hudson for building ADF applications.  Surprisingly via the EMG new member's survey around 25% of new members have no idea about CI tools so I think Aino's presentation is a great addition to the ADF EMG line up: 

2) UGF4945 - Deploy with Joy: Using Hudson to Build and Deploy Your Oracle ADF Applications - 10:15am-11:15am Moscone South room 305 

The 3rd presentation is one ADF EMG members have been asking for such a long time: 

3) UGF10463 - A Peek into the Oracle ADF Architecture of Oracle Fusion Applications - 11:30am-12:30am Moscone South room 305 

In this presentation Simon Haslam will be discussing the actual Fusion Apps "ADF" architecture.  In other words forgot the high level "yes ADF was used to build Fusion Apps" bullet points, Simon is going for a deep dive into the nitty gritty details of how ADF was used to build Fusion Apps.  For ADF EMG members remember all those times you posted to the EMG wishing to know more details about how ADF was used in Fusion Apps? This is the session for you to learn and bring your own questions.

But the fun doesn't stop here.  The final presentation is a muti-slot presentation, where a team of FMW programmers, including ADF programmers, SOA programmers and more will build an end-to-end application, live in front of your very eyes: 

4) UGF10464 - Oracle Fusion Middleware Live Application Development Demo - 12:45-3:45pm Moscone South room 305 

Why this presentation rocks, is rather than a single presentation on ADF here, then a separate presentation on SOA there, the goal of this presentation is to bring it altogether so you can see an end-to-end Fusion Middleware application being built at once.  I've seen this before, this is a great session, and I highly recommend it.

 Is there something I disagree with? Yes, the title Chris chose for his announcement:

The Year After the Year of the ADF Developer - the ADF EMG at OOW 2012

Every year is an ADF year! No need to point to the past.  The year after the year of the ADF developer is the year of ADF developer.

Oracle Fusion Applications Design Patterns Now Available

"The Oracle Fusion Applications user experience design patterns are published! These new, reusable usability solutions and best-practices, which will join Oracle dashboard patterns and guidelines that are already available online, are used by Oracle to artfully bring to life a new standard in the user experience, or UX, of enterprise applications. Now, the Oracle applications development community can benefit from the science behind the Oracle Fusion Applications user experience, too.

These Oracle Fusion Applications UX Design Patterns, or blueprints, enable Oracle applications developers and system implementers everywhere to leverage professional usability insight when [...]  designing exciting, new, highly usable applications -- in the cloud or on-premise.

 Based on the Oracle Application Development Framework (ADF) components, the Oracle Fusion Applications patterns and guidelines are proven with real users and in the Applications UX usability labs, so you can get right to work coding productivity-enhancing designs that provide an advantage for your entire business.

 What’s the best way to get started? We’ve made that easy, too. The Design Filter Tool (DeFT) selects the best pattern for your user type and task. Simply adapt your selection for your own task flow and content, and you’re on your way to a really great applications user experience.

More Oracle applications design patterns and training are coming your way in the future. To provide feedback on the sets that are currently available, let us know in the comments section or use the contact form provided."

OEPE with ADF binding support available: Total Eclipse

The current release of Oracle Enterprise Pack for Eclipse, though in technology preview, brings Oracle ADF binding to the Eclipse IDE. You can download the Software from the link below:

Oracle Enterprise Pack for Eclipse (12.1.1.1.0) Technical Preview New June 2012
Certified on Windows 7/XP/Vista, MacOS, and Linux. Supported on JDK 6.

For many Eclipse users, ADF is new and therefore I expect them to need guidance and help in case they run into issues they don't know how to recover from. Similar, ADF users familiar with Oracle JDeveloper that want to give OEPE a try, will find things different in Eclipse and thus may have questions. 

For both audiences I suggest to post issues to the OEPE forum on the Oracle Technology Network: I'll extend my OTN monitoring to include the OEPE forum on a daily basis to learn about developer needs, requirements and - of course - to catch bugs that need to be filed. From my side this is a part-time involvement, which means that the more ADF questions show on the forum, the more help I could need in answering them. The OTN forum for JDeveloper in my opnion wouldn't be the right place to go to unless the question is a generic ADF question that is not dependent on the integration in Eclipse.

Here's the OEPE forum link for a start

Free Advanced ADF eCourse, part II

A second part of the advanced Oracle ADF online training is available for free. Lynn Munsinger and her team worked hard to deliver this second part of the training as close to the release of the first installment as possible. This two part advanced ADF training provides you with a wealth of advanced ADF know-how and insight for you to adopt in a self-paced manner.

Part 1 (though I am sure you have this bookmarked):

http://tinyurl.com/advadf-part1

Part 2 (the new material):
http://tinyurl.com/advadf-part2

Quoting Lynn:

"This second installment provides you with all you need to know about regions, including best practices for implementing contextual events and other region communication patterns.

It also covers the nitty-gritty details of building great looking user interfaces, such as how to work with (not against!) the ADF Faces layout components, how to build page templates and declarative components, and how to skin the application to your organization’s needs. It wraps up with an in-depth look at layout components, and a second helping of additional region considerations if you just can’t get enough.

Like the first installment, the content for this course comes from Product Management. This 2nd eCourse compilation is a bit of a “Swan Song” for Patrice Daux, a long-time JDeveloper and ADF curriculum developer, who is retiring the end of this month. Thanks for your efforts, Patrice, and bon voyage!"

Indeed: Great job Patrice! (and all others involved)

OTN Harvest Summary for December 2011 merges with January 2012 edition

December 2011 has been busy for me and so I decided to merge OTN Harvest summary for December 2011 with the January 2012 edition. I did post this information on twitter before but recognized that not everyone reading the summary is following me on Twitter  (twitter.com/fnimphiu, twitter.com/adfcodecorner), therefore posting it here too.

About

The Oracle JDeveloper forum ranks in the Top 5 of the most active forums on the Oracle Technology Network (OTN).



The OTN Harvest blog is a summary of selected topics posted on the OTN Oracle JDeveloper forum.



It is an effort to turn knowledge exchange into an interesting read for developers who enjoy little nuggets of wisdom
