Anybody who is interested in building ADF applications like the experts do, and at the same time wants to increase developer productivity significantly should take a look at the free downloadable JHeadstart 11.1.2 evaluation version. This evaluation version is compatible with JDeveloper 188.8.131.52.x and 184.108.40.206. The best way to evaluate the immense power of this JHeadstart release is to follow the comprehensive tutorial, that is updated for this latest release. The tutorial includes instructions for installing JHeadstart, and has step-by-step instructions so even people with minimal or no ADF/Java experience can follow along. You can also download the completed tutorial application here, in case you don't have the time to go over the tutorial. To run the tutorial application, you do need to install JHeadstart (see the tutorial for instructions) as JHeadstart comes with a powerful Java runtime library (source code is included!).
