I recently picked up the book Oracle ADF Enterprise Application Development - Made Simple (Packt Publishing).
As a long time integration developer, creating user interfaces, especially web user interfaces, has always been
a challenge for me. I have done a fair bit of work using JSP and PHP over the years and I've long felt that web
development really needed a tool to magnify the productivity of web development in general. As an Oracle employee,
I was happy to see this book come along and provide me with an ideal excuse to get up to speed on Oracle's premier
web development technology - ADF (Application Development Framework).

The book (written by Sten E. Vesterli) doesn't take the standard "Hello World" approach to introducing ADF. Instead
it walks you through the full development life cycle, starting with a proof of concept and then graduating through
project structure, team development, best practices, testing (including load testing), modifying the look and feel,
securing the web app and ultimately delivering the application into a production environment. There is also an
appendix in the book that covers the internationalization (aka localization) of an ADF application.

I found the author's style to be easy to read and casual in nature, not at all professorial. He walks you through
the chapters in a fluid manner. I suppose you could skip around and simply read the chapters that were of specific
interest. However, since this is an introductory book and the topic was relatively new to me, I think I got more
out of it by reading it from cover to cover.

There are several aspects of the book that I really enjoyed.

The book is written by Sten Vesterli an Oracle ACE Director and it is absolutely a good read.

When reading I found myself in an environment that I recognize from the many ADF projects that I have been involved in. Many of the questions that newbie ADF Developers have are answered in this book. The book describes the development process, starting with an ADF PoC, all the way to testing, packaging and delivering the application to the end users. The book contains very little code, and is meant to guide you through the process of application development.

The chapter on getting Organized for instance. When starting on ADF, organizing the team an be tricky. In this chapter Sten describes what expertise is necessary in an ADF project. You will also learn about the tools you need. No not JDeveloper, but tools like versioning tools, issue tracking tools, tools for collaboration and tools for automating builds. Finally there is a part dedicated to naming conventions. The part on Graphics User Interface Designers refers to the ADF Rich Client online demo, where they can see how ADF RC components work.

Sten also takes the chance to be the first one writing about the brand new visual skineditor in chapter 8.

All in all this is an excellent book, or even better `a must read', if you are about to develop your first (or even 2nd or 3rd) ADF enterprise application. It really helps you to understand how to approach ADF enterprise application development.
By reading this book, it doesn't get simple but sure becomes a lot less complicated. Thanks Sten for writing this for all of us out here. All in all an excellent addition for the ADF Book Shelf.

Format: Paperback
Although it is easy to argue whether the development in ADF is a simple task, what distinguishes this book than others, is not the coverage of technology but the detailed description of skills, tools and project tasks that a real world application requires. From that perspective, it is extremely valuable to architects, project managers and technical leaders that are crafting their way towards ADF, especially for first time. More specifically, the book has the following chapters:

1. The ADF Proof of Concept, which describes the case study and a general description of the various involving components (entities, lovs, task flows, etc.)
2. Estimating The Effort, a very interesting chapter on the estimation of complexity of the use case and how is this related to ADF technology
3. Getting Organized, talks about the roles, skills and staffing necessary for an ADF project. It also provides with an indicative list of software tools that will be needed during the development and testing cycles, naming conventions, hints about organization structure projects and workspaces. This is the most complete and important part of the book.
4. Productive Teamwork, which outlines the Subversion and Oracle Team Productivity Center for integration with issue tracking systems (eg JIRA)
5. Prepare to Build, which involves the construction of templates for task flows and pages and the framework extension classes, before starting the mass production process.
6. The Building Enterprise Application, which attempts to give a sense of an end-to-end development experience in ADF
7. Testing your Application, discusses the usage the use of JUnit, Selenium and JMeter in an ADF application.
8. Look and Feel, talks about skins and CSS.
