ADF Performance Tuning: Avoid a Long Browser Load Time

Frank Houweling

It is not always easy to troubleshoot ADF performance problems – it is often complicated. Many parts needs to be measured, analyzed and considered. While looking for performance problems at the usual suspects (ADF application, database, network), the real problem can also be found in the often overlooked browser load […]

ADF Performance Monitor: Support for EJB/JPA (EclipseLink)

Frank Houweling

Not all Oracle ADF projects are built with ADF Business Components (ADF BC). Some organizations prefer to use EJB/JPA (EclipseLink) instead of ADF BC. The EclipseLink JPA provides developers with a standards based Object-Relational persistence solution. The application still reflects the Model-View-Controller architecture. In this case the model is provided by […]

ADF Performance Monitor: Detecting and Analyzing a High ADF BC Memory Consumption

Frank Houweling 2

Like other web applications, Oracle ADF applications potentially use a lot of JVM memory. Many times, the root cause of a high memory usage is that application data retrieved from the database into memory is not properly limited; hundreds or thousands of rows (with too many attributes) are fetched and […]
