Introduction
With the release of the Mobile Application Framework it makes sense to look into building a hybrid application that integrates assets from WebCenter into a native application. This will reduce the development cost (build once, reuse multiple times) and simplifies management. WebCenter Portal provides functionality to target specific pages to specific mobile devices. By doing so, we can build pages that are designed to be consumed in a native application.

By doing so, you can build your entire mobile application in WebCenter Portal but still make use of the native features provided by the mobile framework. It also allows you to reuse the assets and no redevelopment is required. In this blog post I will show what steps are required to build a hybrid application in both WebCenter Portal and a mobile application.

Main Article
In order to build a hybrid application we need to complete a few steps:
1) Building a template in WebCenter Portal that will be used to display our pages for native integration
2) Build a custom component in your mobile application to consume WebCenter pages
3) Add the custom component to an AMX page
Each of these steps will be described in detail below. In addition to this I will also briefly explain how to reuse the navigation model from WebCenter to build a dynamic navigation in your mobile application. Read the complete article here.

LogoTop Three Reasons to Use an In-Memory Data Grid
Date: Wednesday, October 29, 2014
Time: 10:00 AM PDT
As data volumes and customer expectations increase—driven by social, mobile, and cloud devices—so does the need to manage more data, often in real time. Companies facing this challenge benefit from the in-memory data grid technology of Oracle Coherence due to its ability to offload overburdened databases and shared data services and provide real-time data updates to applications. This saves infrastructure cost and ensures optimal performance.
Join the webcast to learn how companies like yours are:

  • Offloading their mainframes and shared services
  • Delivering real-time data to customers to provide the best experiences
  • Caching commonly used data to keep it highly available for application consumption

JDeveloper 12c 12.1.3 is finally available. The list of new features and enhancements is quite impressive. Have a look! You will not be disappointed. Personally, I was very happy to discover than Apache Maven support has been enhanced in two small but critical areas: paths and archetypes. Don’t get me wrong: Maven support in 12.1.2 is leaps and bounds ahead what 11g offers. But the tweaks brought in 12.1.3 make a significant difference. The main issue with the Maven support in 12.1.2 is that the POM files generated by JDeveloper contain absolute paths. This is problematic, since applications will not

compile correctly unless the code resides in the same location on all developer workstations and build servers. This is not always possible or even desirable. Thus, I described how to replace those absolute paths with relative ones in a previous blog post. Fortunately, JDeveloper 12.1.3 does things differently and writes its POMs with relative paths instead.
Maven archetypes help developers create new applications from scratch from the command line. It is now possible to build a new ADF application that way using the oracle-adffaces-ejb archetype introduced by Oracle in JDeveloper 12.1.3. The resulting application will use EJB for its model layer. To use the archetype, simply issue a command like the one below:
mvn archetype:generate -DarchetypeGroupId=com.oracle.adf.archetype
-DarchetypeArtifactId=oracle-adffaces-ejb
-DarchetypeVersion=12.1.3-0-0
-DgroupId=oracle.test
-DartifactId=my-maven-test
-Dversion=1.0-SNAPSHOT
Obviously, this command will be successful only if the Maven binaries directory has been added to the path. Remember that Maven is provided by JDeveloper and can be found in the ORACLE_HOME/oracle_common/modules directory – although you can use your own install instead. If you prefer to use a GUI, you can create an application from inside JDeveloper by using a little known option introduced in 12.1.2. First, open the New… gallery and select the Maven subcategory (under the General category). Then, select the Generate from Archetype item. This will bring up the dialog shown below.

THANKS to all ADF WebLogic Community Partners for the excellent Mobile Application Framework (MAF) and JDeveloper launch. It was an amazing 50 hours of an almost around the clock twitter storm! It was worth waiting a long time for the WebLogic 1

2c release the first feedback is superb!
We now have the opportunity to convert this WebLogic 12c storm in joint business! Make use of our launch event marketing campaign and run local launch events for your customers. Most of our customers have the need to build mobile applications. You can build in many frameworks mobile applications, key is to integrate and secure them in your enterprise architecture! That is where the real work and the high paid consulting work is required!
Here are some of the best quotes & tweets about MAF & JDeveloper – THANKS to all partners & ACEs & product management! Jürgen We want to promote your blog post send it via twitter @wlscommunity or #WebLogicCommunity or post it at our www.facebook.com/weblogiccommunity or contact me via linkedin.com/kress
Within minutes we received the first MAF apps screenshots thanks to Luc and Ulrich

Introduction This blog will detail how to create a simple Web Application (Web App) on a Windows 7 64 bit system and deploy it to a GlassFish 4.0 server. The web app will be kept simple, so as to keep the focus of the tutorial on the concepts; as such, the web app will provide a web page prompting the user to enter their name and date of birth, before loading another page that repeats their name back at them with their age. The blog will cover how to set up, code, and deploy the web app using the NetBeans IDE, as well as how to manually deploy it using the Windows command prompt. It should be noted that unless stated otherwise, any additional settings that can be changed but are not noted in the guide should be left as their default.

This guide was written using the following:

  • Windows 7
  • GlassFish 4.0
  • Java EE 7 32 bit
  • JDK 1.7.0_45 32 bit
  • NetBeans 7.4

Though just an introductory tutorial, the web app will be designed with good practices in mind, and so will be designed upon the Model View Controller (MVC) pattern to provide good separation of concerns. As such, the web app will have the following structure: Read the complete article here.
