ADF Overview for WebCenter Developers

Depending on what aspect of ADF you’re looking at, ADF can be very deep and involved. Learning about the concepts relevant to WebCenter developers can be a challenge at times.

Lucas Jellema and Chris Muir, Oracle ACE Directors, wrote a great, two-part article about the partial page and PPR aspects of ADF, posted on OTN.

Here is the abstract of the paper:

In this two-part series, Oracle ACE directors Chris Muir, in Australia, and Lucas Jellema, in The Netherlands, have joined forces to provide an overview of the support for Ajax and PPR in the Oracle Application Development Framework (Oracle ADF) Faces Rich Client (RC) constituent of Oracle ADF 11g. They provide a step-by-step introduction to both the basics and the more advanced aspects of Ajax and PPR in Oracle ADF Faces RC. The two articles include many code examples as well as an Oracle JDeveloper application with the complete source code. This first article discusses the functionality that is available through simple declarative means, and the second takes us to a more advanced level of client/server integration using programmatic facilities including the Oracle ADF Faces RC client-side (JavaScript) API.

The self-contained sample application that the article comes with doesn’t require back-end servers to run. It doesn’t get any simpler than that.
