Creating Oracle Application Builder Cloud Service App Based on Oracle ADF Business Components

Shay Shmeltzer - Thu, 2016-10-20 11:29

Oracle Application Builder Cloud Service (ABCS for short) enables you (and your business users) to create rich web and mobile apps in a quick visual way from a browser with no-coding required (but coding is possible).

The UI that ABCS creates is based on Oracle JET, which many of our customers love because its responsiveness and lightness.

Some Oracle ADF customers have been on the hunt for a new client-side UI solution for their apps, and Oracle JET is certainly a technology that will work for those use cases.

A nice feature for Oracle ADF customers is that their data-access and business-service layer is built in a reusable way that is decoupled from the UI. And now, with the ability to expose ADF Business Components as REST service, they can use any modern UI framework to develop the UI including Oracle JET. There are already many blog entries with code samples on how to write JET apps that connect to ADF Business Components

But what if we could give you the simplicity of ABCS for the UI creation, the power of JET for the UI experience, and the ability to leverage your existing investment in Oracle ADF all without writing a single line of code manually?

Well, in the demo below I'll show you how you can reuse the logic you have in Oracle ADF Business Component and build a JET based UI on top of them in a declarative way with Oracle Application Builder Cloud Service.

Basically you get the best of each tool - and you don't need to write a single line of code !

architecture

In the 9 minutes demo I'll show you how to:

  • Create an ADF Business Components layer on top of Oracle Database in the Cloud - (0:00)
  • Expose the ADF Business Components as REST service - (1:45)
  • Deploy the REST service to Java Cloud Service (JCS) - (2:19)
  • Create an Oracle Application Builder Cloud Service application - (6:00)
  • Add an ADF BC REST Service as a data source to the app - (6:30)
  • Create the user interface to your application - (7:20)

(Times are indicated in case you want to skip sections you are already familiar with) 


If you are interested in a bit of a background on why this is so simple, the answer is that ABCS was built to enable easy integration with Oracle SaaS leveraging the REST services they expose. To quickly build the full app with all the defaulting you are seeing in there (full CRUD with a simple drag and drop) ABCS needs to know some basic information about the data that it needs to render (primary key, data types, etc). Since Oracle SaaS is built on Oracle ADF, we built into ABCS the capability to analyze the describe that ADF BC REST services provide. This makes it dead simple to consume ADF REST service in ABCS, whether these services come from Oracle's apps - or your own ADF apps :-) 

As you can see there is a great synergy between Oracle ADF, Oracle Application Builder Cloud Service and Oracle JET.
