Most popular URLs for IOUG
By Shay Shmeltzer-Oracle on May 06, 2005
I'm back from IOUG where among other things I was doing shifts in the JDeveloper demo station. It turs out that for a lot of the people who came by I ended up showing something out on OTN. So here is the list of most visited pages for the IOUG audience broken by the type of question.
Q: We are using Forms (or Designer) and we figured out we should start looking into this J2EE thing...
A: Go to the new J2EE for Forms/Designer people section: http://www.oracle.com/technology/products/jdev/collateral/4gl/formsdesignerj2ee.html
Q: I saw your presentation about choosing UIs for Web applications where can I get more information about JSF? (this is also a reply to all the people who came and asked about should we start learning JSP now)
A: Check out the JSF page on OTN for resources to get you started http://otn.oracle.com/jsf
Q: We were at a lecture by someone not from Oracle who said that Oracle Forms is dead...
A: Get the facts straight from the source - Read the Oracle Tools SOD.
Q: We are running Forms in client server (or character mode) and we need to move to the Web. (sometimes this is appended with "should we rewrite in Java").
A: Get to know the simplicity of upgrading Forms to the Web - It's simpler than you thought
Q: So what does this JDeveloper thing do? What is this ADF that we hear about? How do you build Java applications with this tool?
A: Check out the overview papers and the online demos of JDeveloper on the JDeveloper home page
So if you visited me at the booth and didn't get a chance to write the URL I showed you - most chances are that it is in the above list.
Still missing a piece of information - write and let me know.
