Course Overview
Duration: 5 Days

This course is aimed at developers who want to build Java EE applications using Oracle ADF. Learn to use Oracle JDeveloper 11g Release 1 Patch Set 1 to build, test and deploy an end-to-end web application.

Learn To:

Build end-to-end web applications.
Develop Java EE components with Oracle ADF.
Build rich user interfaces with ADF Faces.
Use the new capabilities of Oracle JDeveloper 11g Release 1 Patch Set 1.
Benefits to You:

Simplify application development in your organization to increase productivity. Become more efficient at building Java EE applications using Oracle ADF (innovative yet mature Java EE development framework) and deploy an end-to-end web application.

Build & Deploy

The data model is built with ADF Business Components and the user interface with ADF Faces. During this course, you’ll learn to build each part of the application with the Fusion technology stack and then deploy it to WebLogic Server.

Java EE

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

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.
