JHeadstart R11 at Oracle Open World 2008
By Steven Davelaar on Aug 25, 2008
JHeadstart will be present at Oracle Open World 2008 in San Francisco.
With the upcoming JDeveloper release 11, and the progress we have made in the last months with JHeadstart release 11, we recently decided to make this a release-11 only presentation.
Unfortunately, we could not change the title and abstract anymore in the official OOW content catalog to reflect this. This would have been the updated version:
Oracle JHeadstart R11: Unprecedented Productivity in Developing Best-Practice Fusion Web Applications
JDeveloper and ADF release 11 contain many new features for fusion web development. This session explains how Oracle JHeadstart release 11 can help you in building sophisticated enterprise-class fusion web applications that leverage powerful new ADF features like model-based List of Values, bounded taskflows, XML-driven menus, and all the new rich user interface elements. Learn how JHeadstart can save you months of development time by automating time-consuming ADF development tasks through powerful utilities and generators using many ADF best practices. Finally, if your organization has an investment in Oracle Forms, you should come and see how the JHeadstart Forms2ADF Generator can help you with the transition from Forms to ADF.
As you can see, we put more emphasis on best practices. While working on release 11, exploring all the new ADF 11 features, we realized that the JDeveloper tag line "Productivity with Choice" is more true than ever. With all the new features there are many more choices to make. Do I use a bounded or unbounded task flow? Do I use pages or page fragments? When do I use shared application modules? When do I use page templates? When do I use (dynamic) declarative components?
We have put quite some time in studying the comprehensive developer's guides and internal fusion development guidelines, discussions with subject matter experts, and our own expertise to work out and implement ADF 11 best practices in JHeadstart 11. And the web application generator is no longer the only productivity booster. We are adding a set of utilities that automate other ADF development tasks. For example, there is a utility that based on the associations and viewlinks will create model-based List of Values for all View Objects. The LOV's are based on auto-created read-only view objects that are added to a shared application module.
OK, I hope this was teasing enough to attend my presentation at OOW (Oracle Develop), session S298888, on sunday september 21, starting at 13.15, in the Marriot Hotel Salon 5. (And you are welcome to bring me a present, it's my birthday:-)
If you are not able to attend OOW, you can get a sneak preview on the AMIS Dutch OOW Speakers Session, on september 11.
