Oracle ADF Development Essentials

 

Learn basic best practices for building Oracle Application Development Framework (ADF)-based apps productively

The developer community provides a wealth of information through tutorials, how-to's, sample applications, and so on that help new as well as experienced developers learn how to be productive. For example, it's important for developers to be trained up on subjects such as version control/working in teams, automated unit testing, and using Ant for building projects, but the amount and complexity of information out there on these topics can be overwhelming.

This series of technical articles offers development best practices and techniques in the context of Oracle ADF development in a compact, consumable package. Each article focuses on a specific topic and includes step-by-step examples showing how to implement these practices in an Oracle ADF project. Step-by-step instructions will also be given for installing and configuring any third-party software required (which may include Oracle JDeveloper extensions and/or free or open-source third-party software). Particular attention is given as to why the technique/best practice is important and how to get up and running quickly.
