clip_image002There’s a few things we should probably catch up on regarding Oracle Mobile Application Framework (MAF) that you may have missed or should revisit…

1. There’s a new version of Oracle MAF. Version 2.0.1 has support for iOS 8, enterprise management and security enhancements, component enhancements and enhanced tooling support.  Joe Huang covers it in detail in here. Speaking of enhance tooling support, leads to #2.

2. If you haven’t heard about Oracle Enterprise Pack for Eclipse (OEPE), well, OEPE <3 MAF and isn’t afraid to show it. The new release supports Eclipse Luna, Oracle Developer Cloud Service, and of course MAF 2.0.1.  Greg Stachnick covers it well here.

3. So now you have JDeveloper and Eclipse to choose from. Good! Time to put step up to the challenge. The Oracle Mobile Application challenge. Sign up of right challenge and potentially win some cash. Click here for details.

4. Want a bit of extra help? This article on mobile design patterns might help.

Sometimes you need to dial a number from within a mobile app and for my surprise that functionality was not directly exposed through the Oracle Mobile Application Framework APIs.

Oracle MAF provides a component called Link (Go) available under the General Controls palette that can be used for navigation between pages but it can also be used to enable linking to external URLs.

Using the tel: URL scheme with the Link (Go) component gives you the capability to dial phone numbers from within an Oracle Mobile Application Framework app.

So, here is how to do it:

On your MAF page, drag and drop a Link (Go) to the Panel Page and then set the URL in the component properties to the desired phone number. You can also use a Managed Bean to set the value if you want to do some processing before displaying the number to be called. Read the complete article here.

clip_image002I was inspired by recently published WorkBetter application with ADF 12c Alta UI demo (you can read more about Alta UI and download WorkBetter application from here – Oracle Alta UI). I have decided to create my own application, using the same guidelines as described by Alta UI. While WorkBetter application is based on EJB, my application is using regular ADF BC model. Right now it displays a list of employees from HR schema and allows to edit selected employee data. In the future, I plan to add CRUD support and more advanced UI features. I would recommend to watch a video from Shay Shmeltzer, he describes how to build your first Alta UI application in ADF.
Here you can download my sample application, implemented with Alta UI – ADFAltaUI.zip. This application implements ADF task flow with employees data. By default, employees data is displayed as a list (you should see how it differs comparing to pre-Alta ADF UI, now UI is much cleaner and only essential data is displayed):
According to Alta UI guidelines, user should be given an option to switch to a grid view. This is useful and gives different perspective for the data view: Read the complete article here.

clip_image002The Oracle ADF team is happy to announce the release of the Oracle Alta Workbetter ADF application sample.

You can now get the complete source code for this sample application, so you can further learn how to develop cool user interfaces with Oracle ADF Faces that implement the Oracle Alta UI design patterns.

At the last Oracle OpenWorld conference where we announced Oracle Alta UI, we got great reactions from people who saw the new Alta UI in our new cloud services and apps. And with Oracle ADF Faces it is very easy to implement these type of user interfaces in your application too.

The WorkBetter sample application is aimed at highlighting various aspects of Oracle Alta UI design patterns, and by looking at the source code you can learn how to implement each part of it. The application is hosted here so you can play with it. Here is a quick video that shows you how the application looks and behaves at runtime. You can get the source for the application from the Oracle ADF Sample Page. Read the complete article here.
