Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g: Build Applications with ADF I

What you will learn:

Java EE is a standard, robust, scalable, and secure platform that forms the basis for many of today’s enterprise applications. Oracle Application Development Framework (Oracle ADF) is an innovative, yet mature Java EE development framework that is directly supported and enabled by Oracle JDeveloper 11g. Oracle ADF simplifies Java EE development by minimizing the need to write code that implements the application’s infrastructure allowing developers to focus on the features of the actual application.

This course is aimed at developers who want to build Java EE applications using Oracle ADF. Participants use Oracle JDeveloper 11g Release 1 Patch Set 1 to build, test and deploy an end-to-end web application. The data model is built with ADF Business Components and the user interface with ADF Faces. During the course, participants learn to build each part of the application with the Fusion technology stack and then deploy it to WebLogic Server.
