Next to the WebCenter Tutorial I came up with the idea of writing an ADF tutorial.
One of the reasons why I create this separate tutorial is that ADF is just too big to cover in a single section in the WebCenter tutorial.
During WebCenter trainings I gave I noticed that people know WebCenter but often miss the basic concepts about ADF like business components, taskflows, binding layer, data control and so on. Because of this I believe it will be helpful for the WebCenter developer to understand ADF better.
ADF is the foundation of WebCenter so it is really important for every WebCenter developer to understand the concepts and this is often missing in their skill set. I hope this tutorial will reduce this gap.
Because this tutorial is a spin off from the WebCenter tutorial, we will work in the same domain which means that we will be building a back-end system for the VIE portal where people can manage subscription for courses, basic HR management from teachers and so on.
We will also be using and integrating these functionalities in the WebCenter tutorial but this will be a section dedicated to the integration in a section in the WebCenter tutorial.
I will also mainly focus on the topics that are important for the WebCenter developer. Therefore I will not use JDeveloper 11g R2 but I will stick to JDev 11g R1 in order to comply for WebCenter.
