Extending Oracle ADF BC Models to REST, Cloud and Mobile
Today, Mobile and Cloud sit at the tip of interest in software development where they promise new business opportunities and unparalleled user engagement possibilities. Mobile and Cloud, however, dont need to compete with your investments in Oracle ADF but can be used to extend existing ADF applications to the mobile input channel and the Cloud deployment model. A best practice recommendation for designing Oracle ADF applications that has been promoted by Oracle is to get things right at the business service layer before building the web application. If you followed this recommendation, then the larger part of your investment in Oracle ADF resides in the business service, which you developed with Oracle ADF Business Components (ADF BC). So you are ready set up for reuse: But how do you bring this to mobile and cloud? Exposing ADF Business Components business services on the REST interface is a new feature in Oracle JDeveloper 12.2.1 that provides an easy path for you to share your ADF business service logic with Mobile and Cloud. This session provides an overview of the Oracle ADF BC REST service feature and demonstrates the integration with Mobile and Cloud by the example of Oracle Mobile Application Framework (Oracle MAF) and Oracle Mobile Cloud Service (Oracle MCS).
