Oracle ADF Mobile Client Now Available

Oracle ADF Enables Developers to Quickly Develop Applications for Mobile Devices

 "The increased adoption of mobile business applications requires Java developers to create and extend mobile applications faster than ever before," said Ted Farrell, chief architect and senior vice president of Tools and Middleware, Oracle. "Oracle ADF Mobile Client and Oracle ADF Mobile Browser enable developers to leverage their existing skill sets to efficiently deploy applications across mobile devices and platforms and address rapidly increasing mobility requirements within the enterprise."

Furthering its support for Java-based mobile development, Oracle on Monday announced Oracle Application Development Framework (ADF) Mobile Client, an extension of the Oracle Application Development Framework.

A component of Oracle Fusion Middleware, Oracle ADF Mobile Client allows developers to extend their existing skills into mobile devices. It simplifies application creation and deployment using a single, standard Java user interface (UI) framework and tooling for all supported devices. Developers can build once and deploy to multiple devices - and as support for new devices is added in Oracle ADF Mobile Client, applications can be deployed to the new platforms without redevelopment.

Oracle ADF Mobile Client provides native mobile functionality, allowing applications to be deployed directly to mobile devices, with initial support for BlackBerry (RIM) and Microsoft Windows Mobile devices.

With access to real-time and offline data and deep device services integration, Oracle ADF Mobile Client provides benefits for a variety of applications including field service, warehouse management, consumer goods/retail execution and sales force automation.

Oracle ADF Mobile Client complements Oracle ADF Mobile Browser, a product that enables developers to build connected enterprise applications for a broad range of mobile browsers.

Simplified Development for Java-Based Mobile Applications

Based on the same programming paradigm as Java Server Faces (JSF), Oracle ADF Mobile Client delivers a highly productive, declarative development environment where the developer can work with a mix of visual editing tools and Java code to define a device-independent representation of the application. This single generic application definition is then rendered on multiple device types using the native UI for that platform.

This approach removes the need for developers to overly specialize on a particular class of device or toolkit and allows the application to rapidly respond to the changing capabilities and platforms within the mobile space.

Oracle ADF Mobile Client allows the creation of Java-based applications running as local applications on the phone or mobile device.

Oracle ADF Mobile Client's data management facilities and access to on-device services make it an ideal platform for extending existing enterprise applications into the mobile space.

Oracle ADF Mobile Client also makes it easy to repurpose existing enterprise services and extend them into disconnected mobile delivery, regardless of the application's original design.

Other new capabilities in this release of Oracle ADF Mobile Client:

Offline and Real-Time Access to Enterprise Data: Oracle ADF Mobile Client framework provides design tools and data synchronization services for offline data synchronization. In addition, a real-time data link can be established declaratively via Web Services. Data can also be cached locally, providing support for hybrid online/offline mobile applications.

Local Device Hardware Access: Mobile clients created with Oracle ADF Mobile Client can access local device hardware such as cameras, GPS and other data acquisition sources from Java code embedded into the application.

Declarative Barcode Reader Integration: Allows Oracle ADF mobile applications to simply and seamlessly integrate with integrated barcode readers on the device.

Data Synchronization Between the Device and the Enterprise: Oracle Database Lite Mobile Server provides a highly configurable data synchronization engine that allows delta-based automatic as well as on-demand synchronization. Mobile Transaction Replay Service, part of the Oracle ADF Mobile Client, also allows logical transactions that have been recorded on the mobile device while offline to be replayed through a service API rather than directly to the database. This approach promotes the reuse of existing enterprise services and a well-separated SOA architecture

To Really Work for Enterprises, MultiCloud Adoption Requires Far Better and Inclusive Cloud Monitoring and Cost Management … But How? Overwhelmingly, even as enterprises have adopted cloud computing and are expanding to multi-cloud computing, IT leaders remain concerned about how to monitor, manage and control costs across hybrid and multi-cloud deployments. It’s clear that traditional IT monitoring and management approaches, designed after all for on-premises data centers, are falling short in ...
We are seeing a major migration of enterprises applications to the cloud. As cloud and business use of real time applications accelerate, legacy networks are no longer able to architecturally support cloud adoption and deliver the performance and security required by highly distributed enterprises. These outdated solutions have become more costly and complicated to implement, install, manage, and maintain.SD-WAN offers unlimited capabilities for accessing the benefits of the cloud and Internet. ...
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...

Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
