I tried two ways of doing skinning in MAF.
1. Using skin-addition
a. Open maf-skins.xml from ApplicationController project -> Application Sources -> META-INF
Drag and drop skin-addition from the component pallette, your file will look something like this:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
test.css needs to be created inside Web Content folder.

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...)
Recently a colleague suggested I take a fresh look at the mobile emulation button in Chrome's developer tools.
Apparently this was upgraded earlier in the year and it's a shame I didn't have this a year ago!
|Chrome Developer Tools Mobile Emulation|
Some immediate advantages I see for APEX development:
- Specify the device you'd like to emulate from a decent range of contemporary devices
- This viewport can then be easily scaled to suit whatever monitor (more...)
Images are heavily used in Mobile apps. For instance a list that contains employees usually shows the images of these employees. This works well when you have a WIFI connection, but what if you are using slower connections ? If you look at a mobile twitter app you will see that, depending on connectivity, images are loaded instantaneously or delayed. In this post I explain how you can load the images of a List in a (more...)
What a view!
I just returned from my first trip to Utah where I briefly (I was only there for 28 hours!) touched down in Salt Lake City to attend the UTOUG Fall Symposium.
Before I give you the run down, if you just want to cut to the chase, here are the session slides:

Somehow it is already November, which means I haveto start gearing up for all the travel that I will be doing this month. I just got back from my first trip to Utah for the super UTOUG Training Days. The team treated us like royalty and it was fun being able to bring a bit of the legacy to mobile message to the Salt Lake City. Now in less than 2 weeks….Germany here I come!

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...)
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...)
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...)
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.

In the past 18 months I’ve researched and learned at least a dozen new (to me) and recent technologies. Any of them belongs to 2 interesting areas that I’ve focused in that period… Cloud and Mobile.
