Yesterday (16th October), 10 days of the end of the yearly Oracle show in San Francisco, AMIS organized its ‘Review from Oracle Open World 2012′ session with an overview of news, trends, announcements, special finds and interesting rumors . This session was ‘sold out’ (even though it was free). For close to 4 hours, the AMIS crew at OOW enlightened the audience about their main conclusions and greatest inspirational moments from the conference. Our slides from the seven presentations that together made up this interesting evening are now available on SlideShare to further digest.

That depends on who you ask. Some people primarily will have taken goodies from the exhibition floors with them while other may have focused on less tangible goods and gone for inspiration and vision. After the heyday (2006/2007), some waning years and the robust recovery (2011) after an initially tentative turn around (2010) this year seems to have been one of consolidation and careful further evolution. Some choices have been made – not all of them popular but most apparently sensible and reliable because backed by commercial sense.
The show is over, the visitors are on their way home. The process of digesting the announcements, roadmaps and rumors – confirmed or not – can proceed in full swing. What has become of last year’s plans, what are this year’s plans (for next year and beyond) and what has materialized in terms of Oracle’s product portfolio. For everyone, the answers to these questions and the conclusions will be somewhat different – depending on focus, expectations and requirements. However, some conclusions will be shared by most who attended Oracle Open World 2012.
Without a doubt, some of the important themes were and will be: cloud – and at respectable distance – the next generation of database technology (12c) and of engineered systems (Exa… X3-v2), of mobile availability of both standard applications (Fusion Applications and other Oracle Applications products) and custom Portals and applications (through ADF Mobile on iOS and Android)Facts and Opinions
The Facts may seem the easy part – since these are more or less objective – but as soon as interpretation and clarification enter the fray , the absoluteness of the facts is not assured. For example around availability: is the Oracle Cloud More >
Yesterday was a busy day for me. While still recovering from a jetlag, I was part of two sessions. The first one was a team effort. With Lucas Jellema, Aino Andriessen, Ronald van Luttikhuizen, Guido Schmutz and me we did a demonstration of Fusion Middleware Development in front of ‘a live studio audience’. The show was moderated by Chris Muir and Duncan Mills. A good report of this session can be found here.
Halfway into this session I had to leave because my session on Mobile Development with JDeveloper and ADF was up next.
About 180 people pre registered for this session, so I was pretty nervous.
As you can see in this picture (taken with the ADF mobile application using the ADF mobile device datacontrol) there were a lot of people interested.
Because ADF mobile is still in beta I was not allowed to tell everything that I know, but still I was able to give a good overview of mobile development with Jdeveloper and ADF. I will publish the slides as soon as ADF mobile is GA. What I can do however is point you to OTN where you can find the Mobile Browser application that I showed you. Find it here otn mobile.
Also you find a lot of other information regarding mobile development More >
ADF Mobile….. or not ?
I was hoping to hear that ADF mobile was going to be GA very soon, but Oracle ADF Mobile GA was NOT yet announced in this session. Thar leads me to conclude that it will not released during Oracle Open World. But nevertheless the product looks great.
A lot of nice demos, both on simulator and on device. I realy like Dennis’ demo where he shows of the summit application on device. The thematic map with custom image and hotspots really is very nice ! For sure Oracle will support Android and iOS, and if a third or even fourth platform is required, it will be supported….
Also there was a very quick mentioning of the fact that ADF Business Components can be exposed as REST very soon. Nothing more and nothing less on this statement. This makes sense from an ADF mobile perspective, as ADF mobile preferes REST services to connect to the Enterprise Database or Business Services.
Oracle Developer Cloud Service.
The development lifecycle goes into the cloud. The developercloud supports the full development lifecycle including versioning, wiki, issuetracking and build automation. Versioning uses GIT. The cloud WIKI is based on wikitech or confluence, and issue More >
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 >
