Oracle ADF Architecture Square

When developing with a new technology, one of the challenges for technical staff is to both learn the features of the technology and how to implement them, and also consider the broader concepts of design, engineering and architecture. Many an IT project has come undone because IT staff have been focused on the nitty gritty details of writing software, rather than looking at the "bigger picture" of how it will all go together.

The Oracle ADF Architecture Square is designed to address this issue by focusing on architectural issues and developer guidelines for writing ADF software solutions. The goal, to give ADF developers an understanding of the decisions you need to build a successful ADF application, potential architectural blueprints to choose from when putting the ADF application together, and potential ADF best practices to take back to your development team.

[New] ADF Architecture TV Episode Index

“I wish I knew that before we started our ADF project”

Oracle’s ADF Product Management team strives to assist customers with successful ADF development projects. To bring customers one step closer to success, we’ve taken an internal 1 week intensive training course "Real World ADF Design & Architecture Principles" and are publishing it publically, episode by episode, week by week on YouTube as the ADF Architecture TV channel. We hope customers will appreciate receiving content that isn’t regularly available to them, for free, the only investment being a little time each week to watch the next episode.

You can subscribe to the channel to receive notification as each episode is made available.
