Comments on: Oracle Java Technology rules the JavaPolis RAD Race – three winners, using JDeveloper; two also using ADF Friends of Oracle and Java Wed, 24 Jun 2015 09:59:44 +0000 hourly 1 By: Lucas Jellema Sat, 24 Dec 2005 05:41:50 +0000 See the official announcement by the JavaPolis organization at

This year’s edition was an all-time first on JavaPolis. The JavaPolis RAD Race was a shortened version of the “full” RAD Race”; the assignment was a (partial) re-adaptation of an earlier RAD Race case but with a slightly adapted data model and less (=16) deliverables than the original 25. Ultimately, 11 teams of the 15 registered, showed up at the start with their individual toolset.

After careful deliberation, the jury decided that 3 teams were very far in developing the requested functionality and were effectively using the provided data (on CD-ROM) correctly while demonstrating their application.

too, which everyone knows I’m a big fan of. It was basically a timing
issue. While the Oracle JHeadstart team has already begun working on
their 10.1.3/JSF version on the heals of our JDeveloper 10g early
access release, it wasn’t yet available to use along with JDev 10.1.3
& JSF just yet. I’m glad that one of the other winning teams, who
chose JDeveloper 10.1.2 production, was able to showcase the current
production release of JHeadstart in the winner’s circle, too!

By: Pascal Prins Thu, 15 Dec 2005 12:28:01 +0000 Just a small addition … we, the LogicaCMG team that competed in the RADRace, used Jheadstart as part of our toolset. We used Jheadstart to generate part of the page flow. All other pages are custom build using Oracle ADF.

Besides webpages other functionalilty, like communicating with external webservices, sending emails on specific events, using deeplinks to provide the customer a way to confirm specific actions were part of the case.

All and all, it has been a nice experience just to see how productive the Oracle toolset is. But then again, we already new that 😉

By: Duncan Mills Thu, 15 Dec 2005 11:05:41 +0000 Hey Lucas – we were living dangerously with a nightly build of JDeveloper 10.1.3 – No version of Headstart available to help us there…
