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.

Book Review: Oracle WebLogic Server 12c: First Look

"Oracle WebLogic Server 12c: First Look" written by Michel Schildmeijer and published by Packt Publishing (ISBN 978-1-84968-718-8) is a well structured overview of new features in Java EE 6 and Oracle WebLogic Server 12c. On 117 pages (no typo on my side), Michel provides a well done digest of what you need to know about Java EE 6 development and deployment with WebLogic server 12c. Michel shows in depth expertise in the Java EE and open source landscape as well as in WebLogic server configuration and administration, as well as Oracle Exalogic.

  • Chapter 1 "Ready for the Cloud!" is a brief introduction to Oracle's WLS stratey and the features of Java EE.
  • Chapter 2 "Supporting the Java EE 6" shows an overview of interesting Java EE 6 features like CDI, EJB 3.1, JSF 2.1, JPA, Servlet 3.0 and REST. The book doesn't go in depth when describing the new features but gives you enough information to feed Google for more information.  From a developer perspective its a well written heads up on what you want to research further in preparation for JDeveloper 12c and WLS 12c.
  • Chapter 3 "Deployment, Installation and Configuration Features" lets you know about a lean start option of WLS, class loader analysis, Enterprise Manager functionality and additional packages for application performance monitoring. Again, a lot of heads up to follow up on.
  • Chapter 4 "Integrated and External Services" is about Grid Link and RAC integration, as well as new JDBC features. You also learn about WLS and Java EE security services and the work with RESTful services. Again, this chapter only scratches the surface and is more of a laundry list of what you want to follow up with for your future application development(I at least put down a lot of notes). If you are a project lead or manager (so no developer who need to know exactly how to do things), then this chapter however provides you all information you need to know of.
  • Chapter 5 "Integration and Management with Enterprise Manager 12c Cloud Control is - together with chapter 2 - my personal favorite and explains Enterprise management options a bit closer. Especially WebLogic Server 12c monitoring in this chapter is what I thought "this is what people really need to know about".
  • Chapter 6 "Oracle Weblogic 12c to the Cloud: Exalogic" is less in depth information on what Oracle Exalogic and Exadata is but again provides a reasonable bird's eye overview of the benefits this system provides

As mentioned, 117 pages full of information that are worthwhile reading. The perfect holiday novel for geeks. Definitive, this book is a best value you can get for the cost of if.
