What is ADF?
The Oracle Application Development Framework (Oracle ADF) is an end-to-end
application framework that builds on J2EE standards and open-source
technologies to simplify and accelerate implementing service-oriented
applications. If you develop enterprise solutions that search, display, create,
modify, and validate data using web, wireless, desktop, or web services
interfaces, Oracle ADF can simplify your job. Used in tandem, Oracle
JDeveloper 11g and Oracle ADF give you an environment that covers the full
development lifecycle from design to deployment, with drag-and-drop data
binding, visual UI design, and team development features built-in.

Reuse
The old rules are still the best
Axiom: any duplicated code should become a module
Easier to design
Easier to read
Easier to comprehend
Easier to test
Easier to debug
Easier to change
Easier to reuse
= Reduced system cost
+ Increased developer productivity
+ Less time to market

Web
Page?
Skins
• Defines basic application look & feel
• An abstracted named extension of CSS files
• No different from other web solutions, except:
– All ADF components support skin styleclasses
– At runtime the user can switch skins
Page Templates
• Define a single common page template
• Contains:
– Static content shared by all consumers
– Dynamic content injected by each consumer
– Attributes
• Define attributes:
– Values passed from consumer
– Displayed by page template
• Reuse
– By 1 or more pages or fragments
– By 1 or more applications

Declarative Components
• Pages are made up of repetitive components
• Easy for programmers to mess these up
• Declarative components
– Define a component group
– Reuse throughout your application
– Parameter driven
– Consistent look & feel & behaviour
– Can be shared across applications too
The Killer Reuse Feature
These features are good
but they’re not revolutionary in web design
Here’s the feature that sets ADF above all other web
frameworks
