Oracle OpenWorld 2015 wrapped 2 weeks ago. For those of you unable to attend, it was sunny all week with temperatures in the 70s, yet clouds were everywhere. My apologies for the pun, but you could have easily not noticed the blue skies and bright sun as The Cloud was really everywhere.

Oracle Open World seems a long time ago although actually less than 10 days and hopefully you have now caught up with all the press, all the video and other peoples commentary and what the messages meant for you.
I particularly liked this article from ForbesVoice, talking about Oracle's journey to Cloud and who their competitors are, digital disruption show up well here, the changes dynamics.

A couple of days ago I wrote my first blogpost about using Selenium for (unit)testing the user interface of an ADF application. This was more of a global blogpost about accessing ADF elements through Selenium. This time I am describing the solution of a more specific problem: Sorting ADF table components ascending or descending on a specific column.
