Oracle Makes Mobile App Development Connection
May 7, 2013 – Oracle announced the general availability of the latest release of Oracle Application Development Framework (ADF) Mobile, an extension of its Oracle Application Development Framework.
Oracle ADF Mobile Release 1.1 adds support for device-native push notification, new device integration infrastructure based on Apache Cordova, full file attachment viewing, updated mobile operating system support and enhanced performance, which the company states enables the development of more advanced mobile applications.
Part of Oracle Fusion Middleware, Oracle ADF Mobile is a cross-platform mobile development framework that is based on Java and HTML5. It enables developers to build, deploy and extend enterprise applications for mobile environments such as iOS and Android, from a single code base.
Using the technology, developers can visually develop applications to a single target, and deploy them to multiple devices and platforms. New capabilities include device-native push notification support, which enables critical events and updates from enterprise applications and middleware to be pushed instantly to Oracle ADF Mobile applications, as well as support for the latest versions of mobile operating systems.
“As one of the first systems integration partners to release an Oracle ADF Mobile-based application on the Apple App Store and Google Play, we’ve seen firsthand the power of the framework,” Greg Opie, director of solutions architecture at ECS Team, said in a statement. “By leveraging our existing knowledge of Oracle’s development tools and Java/HTML/CSS, we were able to reduce the development time and deliver an application to our client in weeks rather than months.”
