Presentation: "Oracle ADF: Drag and Drop Data Binding for J2EE Business Services"

Track:   Business

Time: Wednesday 11:00 - 12:00

Location: Balcony


J2EE developers can lose a lot of time writing code to implement best-practices design patterns to achieve well-architected applications. JSR 227 eliminates some of this routine coding by standardizing a declarative approach to data binding.

This presentation illustrates Oracle's runtime and designtime implementation of JSR 227 in its Oracle Application Development Framework (ADF), and highlights the facilities that Oracle ADF provides for productively building and data-binding to J2EE business services. Along the way, we showcase the best-practice techniques that Oracle's over-2000 internal J2EE application developers have made and motivate why.
