Oracle ADF Task Flow Beyond the 10-Minute Demo
John King, King Training Resources

Oracle’s Application Development Framework (ADF) is an excellent tool for creating robust applications. Part of ADF’s strength is the built-in Model-View-Controller (MVC) design inherited from Java Server Faces (JSF). Using a series of XML files (of course), the flow of ADF Faces applications can be managed by the controller properly. The Task Flow process seems a little unwieldy to experienced UI developers, but the advantages of “not breaking” the Controller are worth it. In this session, you will see how ADF’s Task Flow may be used to quickly and easily manage the flow of an application.

The Tie That Binds: An Introduction to ADF Bindings
Peter Koletzke, Quovera

Connecting data from a data source in user interface components on a webpage was previously a difficult task, but ADF offers an easy way to do it: ADF Bindings. This presentation briefly reviews where ADF Model (ADFm) fits in ADF development and how ADF bindings allow you to quickly connect a user interface page to business services such as ADF Business Components. The presentation provides details and shows examples of how ADF bindings work, how to automatically bind data elements to visual elements, what types of bindings are available, and where binding code appears. It also explains the basics of the expression language used to bind model layer components to view layer components and gives an example of how to manipulate bindings programmatically.
