Oracle ADF Course Content

Overview:

Oracle ADF (Application Development Framework) is a commercial Java framework for building enterprise applications. It gives you visual and declarative approaches to Java EE development. It provides rapid application development ready to use design patterns, metadata driven and visual tools. Using this we can build a Fusion web application that uses ADF Business Components, ADF Controller, ADF Model and ADF Faces rich client along with high level development practices.

Training Objectives of ADF:

Oracle ADF is a complete end to end application framework that builds on Java Platform, Enterprise Edition (Java EE) standards and open-source technologies. Using this you can implement enterprise solutions that search, display, create, update and validate data using web, wireless, desktop, or web services interfaces. Oracle JDeveloper 11g and Oracle ADF both will give you an environment that covers the full development lifecycle from design to deployment, with drag and drop data binding, visual user interface design and team development features built in.

Target Students / Prerequisites:

Students should be aware on HTML, XML, and Java development.
