The Future of Oracle ADF

At Oracle OpenWorld, there was a lot of Oracle ADF material. I presented on Oracle ADF Bindings as part of the well-attended ADF track on User Group Sunday, and Oracle also gave some very interesting presentations on new and coming features in ADF. For example there is now an ADF component that you can use to visualize any network of nodes and edges.

But what struck me more was the fact that when Oracle buys a cloud-based offering, they tell them to re-develop the stuff in Oracle ADF. Yes, that’s right – you will be seeing Taleo, RightNow, CPQ and other recent acquisitions move to ADF.

The reason is of course that all of Oracle’s cloud offerings must run on the Oracle cloud in a unified infrastructure, and ADF is part of that. The future of ADF is bright.
