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.

Where is the spotlight going to shine? Not much gossip seems to have come out of Redwood Shores. And there are no obvious candidates really. 11gR2 is still on the drawing board it seems, the beta program not yet on its way. BEA was acquired some months ago and all plans with regard to BEA were announced in the beginnen of July. There could be another rabbit pulled out of a high hat – like Oracle Enterprise Linux in 2006 and Oracle VM in 2008. (more…)
