Oracle Forms is a strong and viable product with years of future left. However, Oracle has “bet the farm” on the success of Fusion; Oracle’s rewrite of its Application stack using Java EE and Service-Oriented Architecture. A key tool in this development effort has been the JDeveloper tool and the Oracle Application Development Framework (ADF). Forms Developers wanting to “catch the new wave” are interested in adding JDeveloper and ADF to their repertoire. JDeveloper has come a long way from the tool that crashed during every Oracle demo session and has become a robust development tool for Java and more. ADF likewise has become a useful application development tool that is reminiscent of the simplicity of developing with Oracle Forms (reminiscent; still not all the way there, but much closer…). ADF provides graphic and declarative mechanisms used to develop data-based applications where most “grunt work” code is generated by the tools and actual coding is limited compared to normal Java EE development.
This session will illustrate the ease with which Oracle Forms Developers can use JDeveloper and ADF can be used to create Java-based web applications.
