Just a short post on the books and resources I used when starting with ADF.
At first ADF looks pretty simple – then reality hit you. This is a list of the books I’ve used when learning how to use the framework. I hope it’s useful.
”Oracle ADF Enterprise Application Development – Made Simple” (Sten Vesterli) (link)
When I started working with ADF the first book I read was this one. It’s great introduction to ADF. Naturally I’m completely unbiased (Sten is a good colleague).
Developing Web Applications with Oracle ADF Essentials (Sten Vesterli) (link)
If you’re thinking about using the free version of ADF (ADF Essentials). Then this is a good starter. There’s a review of it here
Quick Start Guide to Oracle Fusion Development (Grant Ronald)
Another great introduction. A bit more in-depth than the above books. Well worth the read.
Oracle JDeveloper 11g Handbook: A Guide to Fusion Web Development (Duncan Mills)
This one got a lot of flack in the Amazon user reviews. To be honest I don’t understand why. I read it cover to cover when preparing for the ADF certification.
Oracle Fusion Developer Guide (Frank Nimphius & Lynn Munsinger)
Frank & Lynns book is huge! And, in my humble opinion, the to read once you’re ready for the advanced stuff.
Oracle Insider has videos on anything from simple introductions to advanced stuff. If you want to learn how to use ADF – watch all of them!
ADF Code Corner has a big table of contents. Just visit it and enjoy.
