For a couple of months I have been discovering the Android platform. As an original Oracle developer I was wondering how an Android app can be connected to an Oracle database. For this purpose I developed an Android app that stores speed traps that users may hit while driving, into an Oracle database. The app also retrieves these speed traps from the database and draws them onto a Google map:
While creating the itinerary for my next trip I had to look for things like campgrounds and gasstations on my route. For this I use google Maps. It wasn’t the first time I did this, however this time I wondered if it was possible to integrate googleMaps in an ADF 11g application. It turned out that it wasn’t that difficult at all. I decided to share my findings here. In this part I will show you how you can use <af:clientListener/> and <af:clientAttribute/> to pinpoint a location in your ADF application on the map. (more…)
In summer 2000 I started in the Field Service development team of Oracle’s eBusiness Suite (http://www.oracle.com/applications/service/srvonl_cont.html). The web form Dispatch Center contains four Java applets. One of them is a map. This map displays the location of the customers and the current position of the field service engineers who synchronize their mobile devices with a central database. The implementation of this map was quite problematic. Especially the performance caused severe headache. In 2005, five years and ten versions later, clicking the tab page of the map still was a receipt to freeze your applicationâ€¦ then I saw Google Maps and I nearly fell from my chair. The performance is amazing. But also development work to integrate a map into an application is easy.
