It started from as a question in a TSS thread that wondered if Oracle can show our EJB stack in a screencast. At first I thought, yes we can but the official Oracle demo that shows this will be out probably next month so why bother.
But then a couple of posts down Gavin King was saying that Oracle probably can't show this type of productivity.
wow, are those fighting words I hear?
Well if it comes down to a challenge then here we go, I picked up one of the recent JDeveloper builds I had on my machine and just ran through our regular demo showing EJB 3.0 development (both entity beans and session facade bean) and then topped this off with our JSF development capabilities and the easy data binding ADF provides for this combination.
There you have it the" three minutes application - now let's see all those hibernate/spring/jboss/eclipse people stepping up to the challenge - let's see if your tools can match this simplicity.
Let the fighting begin...
