JDeveloper and Oracle ADF are key technologies that power Oracle Fusion Applications and Middleware products. How might you get up to speed on these technologies?
The fact that Oracle's future business applications are developed using JDeveloper and based on a framework called Oracle ADF, might be reason enough to want to start building up your JDeveloper and ADF skills. But given that they are also the key to technologies such as WebCenter, and BPM means it might be better to start skilling up sooner rather than later. So how can you start learning Oracle ADF and JDeveloper?
The good news is there is no shortage of information. There is already a regular column "The Tools of Fusion" which appears in the UKOUG’s Oracle Scene magazine. Also, Oracle's Technology Network (OTN) has so much information there is even a guided tour to learning Oracle ADF. Check out the following video:
(Tip: you can Google on "ADF Collateral Tour" if you need to find this again).
This short video takes you through the books, tutorials, on line courses, Oracle University courses, certification exams, online videos and developer guides.
Whether you want to start with the “Quick Start Guide to ADF and JDeveloper” book, or dive into a advanced Oracle ADF online course, there is something for everyone.
