Last week Oracle OpenWorld 2014 took place in San Francisco. I did not have the pleasure to attend this event. thanks to the Social Media and the World Wide Web you could be able to follow the highlights.

Another Oracle OpenWorld is behind us (when did it become October?) and as usual, it was fun to catch up with the members of my Oracle developer community, my ODTUG buddies and fellow ACEs. Cloud was definitely the hot topic on everyone’s mind this year, especially because Oracle announced their upcoming Oracle Mobile Cloud Services and released their Oracle Developer Cloud Service to production a few weeks before the (more...)

Web- and Mobile-Oriented Architectures with Oracle Fusion Middleware – Oracle OpenWorld 2014

Mobile applications as well as a large class of modern HTML5 web applications are built on top of an architecture with special provisions, such as RESTful services; the personal cloud, to provide a cross-device experience; push; cache; localization; scalability; and secure interaction with the enterprise back end. Gartner refers to this as the web-oriented architecture. Oracle Fusion Middleware offers key products (Oracle SOA Suite, Oracle Identity Management, and Oracle API Gateway) to implement this architecture, (more...)

Dusting Off the Data Warehouse

Businesses all over the world have spent millions and millions building data warehouses and implementing Business Intelligence (BI) without coming anywhere near the promised business benefits.

That is about the change.

And the thing that will change this is interactive, visual analytics on tablets.

Tablets and modern interactive graphics are a match made in heaven. Business users who will reluctantly spend half an hour looking at a BI report will happily spend hours playing around (more...)

Transactional Data Caching for ADF Mobile MAF Application

I have described basic idea for data caching in ADF Mobile MAF application in my previous post - Data Caching Implementation for ADF Mobile MAF Application. Today I would like to extend similar solution to handle transactional data caching. Sample application displays list of tasks, user can update task status and description. These updates will be saved locally, until the next synchronisation time with the server.

Updated sample application with MAF mobile and server side (more...)

Data Caching Implementation for ADF Mobile MAF Application

If you are building mobile application with web service call integration, you must take into account data caching strategy. Without data caching, mobile application will try to establish too many connections with the server - this will use a lot of bandwidth and slow down mobile application performance. This post will be focused around the scenario of implementing simple data caching strategy. In my next post, I'm planning to review MAF persistence framework from Steven (more...)

MDS Support for Mobile Application Framework (MAF) in JDeveloper 12c (12.1.3)

MAF framework in JDeveloper 12c (12.1.3) comes with MDS support. This means, we can customise mobile applications in similar way as we customise regular ADF Web applications. I'm going to explain and demonstrate with sample application, how it works MAF 2.0. You can read about this more in MAF 2.0 developer guide, Customizing MAF AMX Application Feature Artifacts.

Sample application, tested with iOS platform - MAFMobileLocalApp_v2.zip. Original version of this (more...)

ADF Mobile 12c (MAF) Support for Master-Detail Data Control

ADF 12c is shipped with renamed mobile platform framework - Oracle Mobile Application Framework (MAF). Previously this was named ADF Mobile. 12c MAF is based on ADF Mobile and provides additional functionality and improvements. Everyone familiar with ADF Mobile 11g, should get up to speed with 12c without issues. I would like to highlight one interesting improvement implemented in 12c MAF - out of the box support for Master-Detail relationship. In previous 11g release, master (more...)

SCOTUX: Cell Phones Important Feature of Human Anatomy

If there’s anyone out there still hoping to close a deal or impress customers with a message about how “mobile is a game changer”, then the words of Chief Justice John Roberts of the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) might clarify just how outdated such positioning is:

Cellphones “are now such a pervasive and insistent part of daily life that the proverbial visitor from Mars might conclude they were an important feature of (more...)

UXer Will Wireframe for Food. Well, Bacon.

I had great fun—and learned a lot in the process—by taking part in an internal Oracle hackathon using Estimote beacons. I joined a team developing a find food fast app using sensors, cleverly named iBacon (iBeacon, iBacon, geddit?).

iBacon didn’t win.

But what we achieved in those three days of the hackathon really knocked me out. It taught me a lot about teamwork and flexible working, and gave me a real-world insight into how (more...)

Millions of big androids

This latest analysis on the population of mobile device technology got me thinking more about the typical sized screen you might encounter as a global web developer.
So it's looking at 2014 Quarter 1 shipment of nearly 280 million smartphones. 81% are now android, only 16% related to Apple - that next iPhone better be (more...)

Change color of List Divider in mobile APEX Applications

This is a quick one, if you have followed my other mobile blog posts.

When creating the mobile guide to the AOUG Conference 2013 (taking place June 17 and 18 in a historic Brewery in Vienna, Austria), i found myself creating a new theme using the themeroller, but still not getting the perfect result i wanted.

Every component got exactly the required color, except list-dividers in the Listview-Component looked a bit ugly.

Why?

Because (more...)

How do I turn off format autodection in Safari?

Always check out the original article at http://www.oraclequirks.com for latest comments, fixes and updates. Your Apex mobile page looks weird because Safari is formatting automatically certain strings containing numbers mistaking them for telephone numbers? You just need to add a meta tag in the head section of the (more...)
