Oracle ADF makes authentication and authorization easy via a nice graphical interface. During development, you can use the builtin file-based policy store called jazn-data.xml. You can then later swap out your authentication provider, using something a bit more scalable such as an LDAP server or custom database store. ADF also provides a default HTML-based login […]

JDeveloper Training
Securing your Oracle ADF pages, task flows, entity objects and attributes is an integral part of any robust ADF application. The Oracle WebLogic container provides many authentication providers for you to choose from, and since you can seamlessly swap them out after creating your application, you can opt to stick with using the jazn-data.xml file during […]

Oracle performance tuning can include speed performance, memory usage, cpu, general i/o or reads and writes specifically.  Sometimes it is the Oracle database that needs to be fine tuned or the application using it but it always reducing resource usage by the database. When tuning Oracle systems, consider individual susbsystems and application modules rather than looking at the system as a […]

This JSF tutorial will demonstrate how to create a Java Server Faces application using Oracle JDeveloper. JSF uses MVC (Model-View-Controller) architecture to separate the business logic from the view layer of an application. Java Server Faces, otherwise known as JSF, is a Model-View-Controller framework that allows you to create applications that separate business logic from […]

Java Server Faces, otherwise known as JSF, is a Model-View-Controller framework that allows you to create applications that separate business logic from the view layer. MVC architecture allows applications greater scalability, since changes in any business logic will not affect what the end user sees. In addition, the view layer can be rendered in several […]

Sometimes you want to take a Java object and persist it, perhaps to a file to be later recreated as an object again. The Java ObjectOutputStream class allows you to do just that. It takes a Java object and flattens it out into a stream of bytes. You can then save it to a file, […]

In most cases, the "view" will be a web page, implemented with JSF. Perhaps you also want to access business objects programmatically through a stand-alone Java console or Swing application.
