Real world ADF applications and task flows can be more sophisticated:
It is a diagram (some-task-flow-defintion.xml (more...)
You might already asked yourself a question like this: How to design an application in a modular way? The principle of "Divide and conquer" helps us to get a complexity under control by breaking possibly complex system into a smaller manageable pieces a.k.a. modules.

Readers of this blog might already took a notice about one link on a right side, pointing to experimental page with live ADF sample application embedded on it. It looks like I'm not alone to have the idea of live ADF samples in my head. Zeeshan Baig, featured in recent (more...)
Bounded task flows are natural building blocks of modular Oracle ADF applications. A bounded task flow facilitates the isolation of specific implementation details in its own memory scope - a page flow scope. For example, a managed bean in pageFlow scope has a lifespan of its bounded flow.
The other commonly used (more...)

One of the advantages to using commercial, fully supported framework like Oracle Application Development Framework (ADF) is that the vendor supplies a list of supported browsers. If something doesn’t work or doesn’t look right, it’s the vendor’s problem.
When we started a recent project, we initially made sure that our (more...)
Developers using Oracle ADF to build applications most likely get in touch with ADF Business Components (exposed as Data Controls) first. The framework provides few other types of Data Controls out of the box , like URL Data Control, to facilitate an access to various data sources and services. There (more...)
One of key concepts in Oracle ADF is a binding layer and Data Controls. In this post the readers are going to find an example usage of:

"If variable x has value y, it is forbidden to update values in column z."
Easy! ADF is well suited for the task. Some Groovy based business rules on the entity, and it just works. Simple, declarative, transparent and instantly enforced everywhere the entity (more...)
When asked about public-facing, real-life examples of Oracle WebCenter in action, Oracle has for the last couple of years presented universities (Université Laval, Texas A&M University). But it is now rumored that BAE Systems‘ site is running Oracle WebCenter.
As it should be, you can’t tell from looking at the (more...)
So, you have started something in Oracle ADF without the safety of a tutorial. How do you even begin thinking about planning how to start developing?
Welcome to this short five step program that will have you flying off the cliff in no time ;-)Before You Even Start!
This post is aimed at all those poor souls that find themselves facing Oracle ADF coming from a PL/SQL background (Forms, APEX or plain old database development).Normal First ReactionsDespair
