Tuesday May 15th, Nieuwegein – The Netherlands: During an intense day and evening, close to 120 Forms developers and architects gathered for discussions, explorations and exchange of experience around the use of Oracle Forms and more importantly: the future of the current Forms applications, Forms-using organizations and Forms developers. Various scenarios, approaches and tools and technology stacks were discussed, hybrid landscapes sketched and pros and cons evaluated.
An interesting line up of international experts on Forms had joined their collective forces and minds to present the most complete overview of the Future of Forms available anywhere in the world today. From relatively new and specialized solutions such as OraPlayer and Yo!Forms to more proven (OraFormsFaces) and mature, architecturally driven future scenarios from PITSS and Oracle Consulting complemented with Forms modernization and integration stories as well as the official strategy from Oracle product management.

The all-star, mostly ACE(D) team consisting of Lonneke, Steven, Luc, Edwin, Ronald and Lucas did a very entertaining jam session with Fusion Middleware most of all day yesterday at the OBUG 2012 Connect Conference (Oracle Benelux User Group). The third performance of its kind – ODTUG 2011 and UKOUG 2011 in Long Beach, California (USA) and Birmingham (UK) being the preceding gigs – successfully realized an end-to-end business process implementation with ingredients such as ADF, JHeadstart, Human Task, BPEL, Mediator, AQ, Event Delivery Network, Technology Adapters, UMS for Emails en of course the database.
In front of a live audience, the challenge was outlined. The high level design introduced and the various components discussed. The left-hand screen (for the audience) displayed the business process and the work done to it in terms of design and implementation. The screen in the middle demonstrated the user interface development using ADF and the right hand screen played various roles, from service development to Enterprise Manager display, BPM worklist and Email client.
The members of the band played the following instruments: Steven on ADF and JHeadstart, Luc on ADF and ADF More >
A little over two years ago I wrote a post on drag and drop in an adf tree component. That post was based on ADF only. In the following post I show that you can have JHeadstart generate a tree for you that supports drag and drop.
Not out of the box, but with use of custom templates, and some ADF knowledge. (more…)
I am currently attending the Devoxx Conference in Antwerp, the largest gathering of Java developers this side of the pond. I was last here in 2005 – a memorable conference for me as in one day I was exposed to JSF and the announcement of the donation by Oracle of Trinidad to Apache MyFaces as well as an introduction to JPA (and EJB 3.0) by Mike Keith. These two sessions helped shaped a lot of what happened in my professional life ever since.
So here I was this morning, expecting another life altering event. (more…)
Breadcrumbs are a navigation technique used in many applications, and its popularity grows. Its purpose is to give users a way to keep track of their location. Breadcrumbs typically appear horizontally across the top of a webpage, usually below any title bars or headers. They provide links back to a previous page that the user navigated through in order to get to the current page, for hierarchical structures usually the parent pages of the current one. In hierarchical site layouts, like an ADF application that uses JHeadstart, breadcrumbs indicate the path back to the root page (or JHeadstart master group page) of the hierarchy with links:
Currently we have a challenge in our JHeadstart ADF application; (more…)
OOW 2008 Preview: JHeadstart 11g – best practices, structure & consistency and even more extra productivity for ADF 11g
One of the theme songs for this year’s Oracle Open World undoubtedly will be ADF 11g. All by itself (Web 2.0) and as the glue for Enterprise 2.0 (WebCenter) and the foundation for Fusion Applications (ERP 2.0?, of which we hopefully will see the first real modules). And one of the singers of that song is Oracle ACE Steven Davelaar who will present the upcoming JHeadstart 11g release. Yesterday at our Oracle Open World 2008 preview, Steven rehearsed his performance, for some 30 interested attendees. Starting back in 2001, JHeadstart 11g follows on a long tradition of packaging best practices for using ADF, providing structure and catering for application wide consistency in page layout and adding to the already quite impressive productivity of developing ADF applications. ADF 11g is very powerful, especially in terms of visual (client) richness. JHeadstart helps to deal with that power, even if you are not already a very experienced ADF 11g developer. Steven hopes for a release of JHeadstart 11g around one to two months after ADF 11g is released, but cannot make any firm commitments (more…)
