Now ADF Mobile is generally availble, it is now time to create your first ADF Mobile application. In this post I will show you how to create a simple application that contains of two pages with navigation. A bonus for this post is that you will see how to get a picture from the filesystem (or by using the device camera) from within your ADF mobile application (more…)
After extensive beta testing oracle announced today that ADF Mobile is now generally available and can be used to build multi platform on device apps. I finally am allowed to share my knowledge in blogposts and other kinds of publications. Using JDeveloper and the ADF Mobile extension, it is very easy to create apps for both the iOS and Android platform. If you only want to create apps for Android, you don’t need a mac, however if you want to create apps voor iOS you really do need a mac to compile the ADF mobile app for iOS.
ADF Mobile provides a natural extension of enterprise/internet applications to mobile clients by providing tools, services, and infrastructure to protect against technology shifts. An application built with ADF Mobile framework installs on a smart device, renders user interface via HTML5, and has access to device services. This means the programming model is primarily web-based, which offers consistency with other enterprise applications as well as easier migration to new platforms. But the application has access to device services, enabling a richer experience for users than a browser alone can offer.

This years visit to Oracle Open World is for me the best of both worlds. First of all I get to attend one of the biggest, if not the biggest, IT conferences in the world. Second, I have two presentations. Both are on Sunday afternoon. The first one is a Fusion Middleware Live Development session where we as a team show you the steps involved in creating an application using nearly all parts of Fusion Middleware. My role in the team is to explain how we build the UI part of the application and how we used ADF to do that. Also I will show you how you can create an interactive dashboard using DVT components such as graphs and gauges. More info on this session can be found here.
Right in the middle of this session I have to leave the room in order to go to my next presentation. This presentation is called “mobile development with Oracle JDeveloper and ADF”. In this session I show you some of the options that you have if you want to extend your enterprise application to mobile devices. I cannot go into much detail yet. Having said that, I’ve probably said enough. More info is available here.
After my presentation I head straight to the Oracle Benelux Networking Event which is More >
Recently my colleague Lucas and discussed database based resource bundles and customization. This reminded me of a comment on one of my posts on the AMIS technology blog where I had a question on UIComponents. The question was if it is possible to modify prompts and labels of components programmatically. As a matter of fact this is possible. You can do this for the session only, or you can choose to persist these changes. In this post I first explain how to implement the “session only” functionality, and in the second part I explain how to use a persisted resource bundle with immediate refresh.
The application used in this post is based on the HR schema and the business components are created and not changed.
I landed only a couple of hours ago in Amsterdam and here’s my report from Kscope 2012 in San Antonio. As I write this, KScope is still waking up for the final day. Anyway, for me KScope was over yesterday.
The venue, the JW Marriott San Antonio, was IMHO somewhat in the middle of nowhere, which is a pity given the fact that downtown San Antonio is beautiful. It took the free shuttle bus about 35 minutes to get there.
Anyway, I was not around for site seeing, I was visiting the conference. At the conference I joined the Fusion Middleware track, not only as an attendee but also as a presenter of two sessions. It was a very nice hotel and conference center. At the conference I attended the Fusion Middleware track.
With over 30 sessions and the Sunday Symposium, this years FMW track again was a very usefull track for everyone that wanted to learn about FMW.Most of the session where ADF related, however there were a couple of webcenter and SOA sessions as well.
Last week I a had a rather interesting question: Is it possible to highlight related data that is in different af:table components ? Sure you can, so I decided to write a simple example application, and share the knowledge in this post (more…)
