Welcome to the New Oracle ADF Developer Newsletter

Oracle's Application Development Framework (ADF) has drawn a huge following and community due to the successes of not only Oracle customers but also Oracle Fusion Applications, Oracle's next generation of business applications. Not only are Oracle JDeveloper and ADF used for Fusion Apps but also many of the other products Oracle provides, including Oracle WebCenter.

The growth of ADF over the years has been tremendous and the success is directly attributable to you, our customers, and the feedback and input you've provided in helping us to build a better product. Along those lines, we now want to provide you with a method to easily see what's new in the JDeveloper and ADF community - therefore we've created this newsletter, which will initially be provided on a bi-monthly basis.

The theme of this newsletter will vary from month-to-month but the content will always include events, blogs, ADF tips, and more. Thank you for subscribing and we promise to keep the news exciting!

—Bill Pataky, VP Product Management, Tools & Frameworks, and the Oracle Technology Network Team
