Oracle Fusion Applications are on the move. They were demonstrated at Oracle Open World 2009, they are current being tested with dozens if not hundreds of organizations and they have been promised for general availability later in 2010. Screenshots of selected modules are available on the internet, for example at: http://www.flickr.com/photos/oracleopenworld09/sets/72157622462805751/.
Fusion Applications are of interest to any ADF developer, as Oracle teams have worked hard – in close collaboration with the ADF development teams – to come up with UI patterns, ways of leading the end user through the application, presenting data and currently available actions in intuitive or at least consistent ways that would most likely work for most of our applications as well. And since we have the same technology stack at our disposal as the Fusion Apps teams have, we can see whether their best practices work for us too.
A recent addition to the catalog of ADF Faces components was the contextInfo component. It is quite heavily used in Fusion Apps for one such consistent pattern. The next screenshot illustrates this component:

Today I came across a brief post on the OTN Forum for JDeveloper and ADF (http://forums.oracle.com/forums/thread.jspa?threadID=923587&tstart=0). The latest demo application (184.108.40.206.0) for ADF 11g Faces RC can be downloaded from http://download.oracle.com/otn/java/jdeveloper/111/extensions/adf-richclient-demo.war. It comes as a WAR file that can be deployed on WebLogic 11g.
Alternatively, we can turn the WAR file into a JDeveloper project, to inspect Source code. The steps are: (more…)
The ODTUG Kaleidoscope 2009 conference started on Sunday with four parallel symposia followed by a stunning demonstration of the upcoming Fusion Applications product based on Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g (including the most visible parts: WebCenter and ADF) – more on that presentation in a later blog. On Monday I did my two presentations – the first of which was titled:"That’s Rich! Putting a smile on ADF Faces". In this presentation I tried to explain what support ADF Faces (11g Rich Client) provides for creating really rich User Interfaces. Duncan Mills graciously had allowed me to present using the upcoming JDeveloper 220.127.116.11.0 release (internal code name Bulldog) that is part of the 1st July launch of Oracle Fusion Middleware, and it allowed me to show off some of the new stuff.
ADF web applications have been hailed as productive to develop and functionally complete. However, ADF 11g RichFaces makes them visually attractive, rich and really Web 2.0 too. This presentation is about enriching ADF Web applications with 11g RichFaces. It discusses features, components, containers, events and behaviors that ADF developers now have at their disposal and how to best use them. Key More >
