2.0 out of 5 stars Could be a 5 star book, however.... August 11, 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Frank is an expert on JDEV, he runs a great blog and is also an Ace on the Oracle Forums. Having known all this, I expected his book on JDEV to be awesome! The book falls short, there is not enough of the code samples to try out the material in JDev and see how the items actually work. The book covers advanced topics but not in enough detail to be carried out in real world code. The jump from JDev 10G to 11G is a huge leap, that requires a lot of examples and material to help the programmer out, this book is not it.

If author/publisher would make the Workspaces available to the reader, one might be able to actually see how all the code is wired together and make use of the material. Without the code samples to work with the book is pretty much a waste of money. There is no more information in this book as there is in the Oracle docs that are free from the oracle site.

Sorry but this book is not recommended.

3.0 out of 5 stars Book is fine, ADF not so much June 25, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
ADF is a bit more difficult to learn than JSF 2, and seems to be mostly used inside of Oracle. There is far less help on the net with ADF and the JDeveloper environment is a constant changing target so some things in the book are not up to date. The book does well to teach though, the 3 stars is more about ADF itself and not the book and it's contents.

There is a much nicer and easier to use framework called Wicket for java developers. Having worked with JSF 1/2, ADF, Struts, Spring MVC, Velocity and JSP pages with hybrid MVC frameworks, Wicket is by far much better than all of them. It's much easier to use, allows the actual web design to be done by designers, and the dynamic content to be added by developers. It takes into account scalability, clustering, security, possible attacks like SQL injection and javascript injection and more. Give it a look see if you're considering any of the other Java web frameworks.

5.0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT June 24, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have used this indispensable reference for my Oracle Fusion projects. This book is not intended to be a tutorial, but rather, a well-rounded guide to Fusion development. Further detail and clarification is easily found in the Oracle forums, in the Fusion API's and from various web resources. If you need tutorials, search on Oracle and you will find more than enough to keep you very busy.

Although this book is available from Oracle as a free PDF, I much prefer having the published copy, as I make a lot of page marks and cross-reference notes in my books. A dog-eared PDF print-out would never hold up as well.

I highly recommend this book to anyone doing Oracle Fusion development.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must have for ADF Fusion Developers April 25, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is a terrific source for ADF developers! My job required me to use Oracle ADF technologies, but I had no training in ADF or JSP. I learned a fair amount from online, but I still felt like I needed more information. This book is without a doubt the best book I have seen for ADF! He goes into detail about everything from creating the Business Components for the back end data handling to globalization of pages.

I've used the book numerous times for implementing security, printing pages, creating CSS files, changing splash screens, and enhancing my application all together.

Frank Nimphius is the go to guy for all things ADF!
