Develop JSF application with Oracle ADF in Eclipse. July 23, 2009

Posted by Terry.Cho in JSF & ADF (Oracle Application Development Framework).
Tags: , , , ,

Oracle ADF has JSF (Java Server Faces – Part of JEE5 standard) implementation.
It provides very rich UI component.
Commonly people think that “to use ADF, do we need JDeveloper?”. Answer is no.
ADF contains whole application framework including Biz Logic, Data Access,View etc.
In this example we just use ADF Faces as a JSF implementation and shows implementation method with eclipse.

– WebLogic 11g (Bundled in JDeveloper 11g)
– JDeveloper 11g
– Eclipse Galileo

You can download source code here

good stuff… although creating an app in eclipse is murder without an visual editor

Thank you for your comment. 🙂
I recommend to design pages with JDeveloper and implement logic with eclipse.

I am interested how to use JSF+ADF components in Eclipse+Tomcat and how to manage such projects. This was the only video that I found on the internet.
Thank you.
But I am still stuck on starting the simple “Hello world” with ADF may be you have more information about it(links or video or tutorial, anything).
Thank you in advance. 🙂

Hello changas. I just tested JSF+ADF in Eclipse + Tomcat to measure the potential. I stopped developing this combination. Because ADF is not popular in my area yet.

ADF is one of reference implementation of JSF. It doesn’t have any dependencies to Web Application Server. So you can use same approach with other JSF or MVC framework.

I suggest you to follow the video again. It works very well.

Everything now is working well. Your video is very good. I just needed to put some libraries in /WEB-INF/lib like: adf-richclient-api-11-sherman.jar, adf-richclient-impl-11-sherman.jar, adf-share-base-11.1.1.jar, dvt-jclient.jar, trinidad-api-, trinidad-impl- and it worked, I got those libraries from rcf-dvt-demo.war. 🙂 Great 🙂

Good to hear. 🙂 I already packaged the libraries in here http://www.box.net/shared/4uppskee7z You can just download and put it into WEB-INF. Please reference this https://javamaster.wordpress.com/2009/07/24/setup-adf-faces-based-jsf-runtime-environment-in-tomcat-6/

Do you need to put them in tomcat/lib or can you put them in any webapps/webapp/WEB-INF/lib?

Terry.Cho - December 4, 2009

Yes. You can put them in any webapps/WEB-INF/lib. It may works but i didn’t test. 😉

Hey Terry,

Really nice demo. I am working on JSF Trinidad charts and have a demo that needs the bubble chart, which ADF has. is it possible to use the bubble chart component with my JSF trinidad demo running on JBoss. How can I use ADF charts without the DVT, only chart and model. Currently the trinidad charts use the ChartModel class.

Your expertise in this matter is greatly appreciated.

I tried to import the provided libraries into the WEB-INF/lib folder but when JBoss starts to import the war file it gives the following error

java.util.zip.ZipException: error in opening zip file

any ideas?

Thanks for some other great article. Where else could anybody get that kind
of info in such an ideal way of writing? I have
a presentation next week, and I am on the look for such information.
