I’ve added an abstract for ODTUG 2009 on the ADF Methodology Google Group and I would like to share the content of this abstract with the community as well.
Especially because your feedback is needed to keep the ball rolling and to check out how many people are using ADF today or are interested in an introduction.
A software development methodology is designed to assist experienced and uninitiated technology practioners to standardize their approach to software design & development. They can help highlight common decision points, outline best practices, promote code reuse, and propose standard deliverables among many other things.
This is a meeting of an ongoing group of experts and delegates first held at OOW08 based around ADF and the support of Oracle staff. We’d like to open the opportunity to the user groups to start participating in this event and ODTUG’s reputation as the key-Oracle development eventwould make this ideal.
-) Quick Introduction of the ADF Methodology Group
-) Goals of the ADF Methodology
-) ADF as a topic:
a) Propose a standardised approach to ADF design & development beyond just the technical
b) Highlight common decision points, outline best practices, promote code reuse, and propose standard deliverables
c) Understand alternative technologies and how ADF fits in
d) Give a feel for the important topics with JDev 11g ADF (and how to learn about them)
-) Presentations regarding best practices, reporting possibilities, testing strategy, 11g take aways
-) Learn how to adopt ADF at an organizational level
-) Help to promote ADF and to inspire others to use ADF
-) Highlight samples, information, guidelines for ADF
-) Take-outs + where to go from here
The goal of the ADF Development Methodology Group is to propose just such a methodology for JDeveloper Application Development Framework (ADF) based projects. With the experience of real-world experts, including Oracle ACEs and Oracle staff, join us to put such a methodology together.
