I'm very happy to finally be able to talk about this. A long time coming, the press release is finally out:
- Oracle Introduces Free Version of Oracle Application Development Framework
- New Oracle ADF Essentials Brings ADF Benefits to the Broader Developer Community
Oracle ADF Essentials is a free packaging of core technologies from the Oracle Application Development Framework that can be used to develop and deploy applications that include ADF Business Components, ADF Controller, ADF Binding, and ADF Faces Rich Client Components without incurring licensing costs. Both Oracle JDeveloper and Oracle Enterprise Pack for Eclipse provide visual and declarative development experience for using it. Oracle ADF Essentials comes with specific instructions and certification for deploying applications on the open-source Glassfish server, but the license is not limited to that server.
