I have had a difficult time wrapping myself around the Java EE stack. Time after time I found very detailed explanations and examples on how to do things in JDeveloper/ADF, but not really why. This book explains the why and does so in a very easy to read manner. It has provided precisely what I needed to get started. I now have a much better understanding of how the pieces fit together and feel ready for the more code-oriented books such as the JDeveloper Handbook or Fusion Developer Guides. For someone without J2EE experience looking to break into Oracle ADF, this is a must read.

I strongly disagree with the majority of the comments made by the previous evaluators - meaning they highly praise this book's efforts.

Yes, this book is packed full of information and details concerning almost any element of development you will encounter for Fusion Apps using ADF.

That being said, it is not a good tutorial. The reason I am stating this is that you are not building a complete application through step-by-step instructions. You have something more of a shell of a development with lots of fragments that are disjointed. The author actually states this in his introduction - "One decision that was made early in the book-writing process was not to include pages and pages of very specific and detailed step-by-step instructions of how to build a sample application." I, for one, wish it was. You can download a completed application from the author's link specified in the book (also in the introduction).

This is not a reference book either and the author tells you that too. You really need to work with the samples to grasp the ADF paradigm. Then, you might bookmark the various pages that illustrate those concepts for a reference later in your development work.

What this book does is give you an ability to peer inside of the many different challenges you will have as an ADF developer.

PROS
1. Comprehensive - a lot of ADF technology is addressed in the book
2. When the author writes good examples, they will definitely give you the background you need to know.
3. Provides a sample application at the link given in the book
4. Best book available on ADF development - there is none better right now!
5. Much better resource than anything else I can find on the Internet.

This is an extremely well written and easy to follow book which, as the title says, gives a very quick and concise guide to getting up and running with ADF very quickly.

I read through the book as part of my prep for ADF Certification and although by the point of reading I had gained a handle of what was in there, there were also a few little extra nuggets that I picked up which have been very useful.

All concepts are described in a fashion that is very easy to understand, and the order and flow in which the elements are taught fits in well with the order of development one would usually take with an ADF Project.

I would definitely recommend this book as a starting point for anyone wanting to get to grips with ADF for the first time - the examples actually worked too. Some of the other ADF books contain errors in the examples so you end up having to debug which can be frustrating to someone learning the technology - there were no such issues with this book.

One reviewer said, this book is not a tutorial (clickity click) and for that reason I rate this book excellent. There are many tutorial books as well as ones on the Internet but one just becomes a robot when you just do the steps without understanding the foundational concepts. I've gone through so many tutorials and "cookbooks" and it wasn't clear as to why I was doing some of the steps. This book gives you the foundational knowledge of the ADF framework which then enables you to understand the other tutorials and allows you to logically build your own apps instead of just blindly following the cookbook format. I like the way the author mentally maps the fusion concepts to what the reader already knows. For example: model-view object is equivalent to the sql data view (think SQL select statements) and entity object roughly equivalent to relational tables. He explains the relationships of Java and metadata (xml) which helps you explain why are you doing these things and to me, makes more sense than just listing steps and assuming the reader understands the why behind the steps so the reader is not stuck in a narrow path of the author's method. He does similar mental maps to what you know and how it maps to ADF. He deconstructs then gives us the big picture and therefore the whole JDEVELOPER/ADF package starts to make sense instead of a bunch of technologies that don't seem incoherent and daunting. I think before doing anything other than the basic tutorials you should read this book first. You will also use it as a reference later.

In my opinion, this is an excellent book, well written and thorough.

Given that the Oracle Fusion ADF Technology Stack provides an incredibly rich set of options for software developers to make use of, this guide meets the challenge of exposing and demonstrating the Toolset in an effective as well as an interesting way.

On first looking into Jdeveloper, one could be overwhelmed by the quantity of options and settings available to the developer; however, this book, skillfully guides the reader through the technology layers, consistently exposing and demonstrating the toolset capabilities. By the time you have completed working through this book, you will realise that a significant portion of the ADF and Jdeveloper toolset has been covered.

If you plan on using the toolset, I would strongly encourage you to actively participate in developing the examples yourself as this is where a lot of the valuable instruction can be gained for yourself.

Summary:
I think it's a great guide for getting to grips with Oracle Jdeveloper 11g and the Application Development Framework; ideal for people who already have some conceptual knowledge and exposure to database, object and web page concepts, but want to experience for themselves, the power of the Fusion Technology Stack.

I therefore believe this book will be valuable for:
#{Programmers} who want to make a transition to ADF or to see for themselves, what the framework can do.
#{Architects & Management} who want to know what the technology stack is capable of providing.
#{Teachers & Trainers} who want to provide Take Home style training materials.
#{Future use} as a Quick Reference Guide if you want to be reminded how to tackle a particular challenge.
