ADF developers you are now mobile developers! Start building iOS and Android applications that leverage HTML5 and Java – with JDeveloper and Oracle ADF
Today, Oracle released the ‘Oracle Application Development Framework (ADF) Mobile’, the long awaited for mobile development framework. You can load it as zip file for installation from a file from Oracle ADF Mobile web page. Go to the download tab and make sure you select the ‘Oracle ADF Mobile’ from the list.
On the Oracle http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/developer-tools/adf/overview/adf-mobile-096323.html web page you find additional material, including a demo of an application build using ADF Mobile.
The extension allows to create application for iOs and Android!
Some key Features –
Develop once, and deploy to Apple iOS and Google Android devices, from the same code base.
Reuse your development skills and tools – development is done mostly in Java and web-based technologies such as CSS, using visual editors and wizards in Oracle JDeveloper.
Deliver a flexible runtime architecture –application can be constructed using a combination of the declarative ADF
AMX UI components, local HTML5 developed using third
party frameworks, and remote HTML pages.
Support mobile-optimized user experiences, for both tablets and smart phones.
Integrate with device native services – such as on-device camera, location-based service, contact applications, etc, to
support application functionality.
Work offline – the entire application can run on-device against a local database.
Secure – integrate with enterprise security infrastructure, and provide authentication and access control services. All
data/credential stores and communication channels are encrypted.
Key Components of Oracle ADF Mobile
Oracle ADF Mobile-based application is consisted of the follow key components:
Thin native framework for each supported platform
PhoneGap libraries in the container to support device services integration
HTML5 based UI components that deliver a device-native user experience
A light weight Java VM is embedded to support the application logic written in Java
An encrypted SQLite database engine
Encrypted credential store and authentication/authorization services.
