</tr> </table> In computing, Oracle Application Development Framework, usually called Oracle ADF, provides a commercial Java framework for building enterprise applications. It provides visual and declarative approaches to J2EE development. It supports rapid application development based on ready-to-use design patterns, metadata-driven and visual tools.
Based on the MVC architecture. Oracle ADF can support any combination of the following:
Mobile application development support is now part of Oracle ADF and JDeveloper. It provides support for both mobile browser applications, as well as on-device, native, disconnected mobile applications.
Oracle Corporation has marketed parts of Oracle ADF since 1999 — specifically ADF Business Components — then known as "JBO" and later as "BC4J" ("Business Components for Java").
The current[update] ADF architecture with the generic model/binding layer was introduced with JDeveloper 9.0.5.
To find out more specific details about versions and release dates see JDeveloper.
From Jonas Jacobi: Voters selected the name "Trinidad" for the following reasons:
The Oracle Application Server licence includes a component for a licence fee for Oracle ADF. This means that all users who have purchased an Oracle Application Server licence may use Oracle ADF for free. Users who want to deploy ADF to a third-party application-server can purchase an ADF runtime licence at their local Oracle sales office. users can develop and test Oracle ADF applications free of charge declaratively within Oracle JDeveloper.
Oracle Corporation purchased Weblogic in June 2008, and thus no longer regards it as a third-party application-server, so ADF is included in every Weblogic license.
Supported customers can get access to the source code for Oracle ADF through a request to Oracle Support.
