This Oracle Middleware 12c: Build Rich Client Applications with ADF Ed 1 training teaches you how to use the powerful, declarative features of ADF Business Components to build and test reusable business services, which you then expose in the user interface using ADF Faces client components. Each ADF Faces component offers complete customization, skinning and support for internationalization and accessibility, as well as a rich rich set of visualization components capable of rendering dynamic charts, graphs, gauges and other graphics that provide real-time updates.

Learn To:
Build end-to-end web applications.
Build rich user interfaces with ADF Faces.
Develop Java EE components with Oracle ADF.
Use the new capabilities of Oracle JDeveloper 12c.

Benefits to You

By taking this course, you will simplify application development in your organization to increase productivity. You'll become more efficient at building Java EE applications using Oracle ADF (innovative yet mature Java EE development framework) and deploying an end-to-end web application.

Build Complex Navigation between Pages

Working with expert Oracle University instructors, you'll also learn how to quickly build complex navigation between pages, define validation logic and secure the application. After using the Fusion technology stack to build and test each part of your application, you'll get a chance to deploy the application to an Integrated WebLogic Server.
