Oracle Application Development Framework (Oracle ADF) is an innovative, yet mature Java EE development framework available from Oracle and unlike most other frameworks is directly supported and enabled by the award winning development environment, Oracle JDeveloper 11g.
Oracle ADF simplifies Java EE development by minimizing the need to write code that implements the application’s infrastructure allowing the users to focus on the features of the actual application. Oracle ADF provides these infrastructure implementations as part of the framework. To recognize a set of runtime services is not enough, Oracle ADF is also focused on the development experience to provide a visual and declarative approach to Java EE development through the Oracle JDeveloper 11g development tool.
