Wow. I’ve had some interesting first days at conferences before, but this was exceptional.
My day started out with a meeting of the ADF Enterprise Methodology Group. This was a group discussion led by a panel, consisting of Chris Muir, Simon Haslam, Andrejus Baranovskis, Steve Muench, and myself. But the great thing about this was that it actually wasn’t mostly us talking–we had truly excellent participation from the audience! I’ve blogged about the ADF EMG before, but I want to reiterate here that it’s a great group. We have pretty much daily discussions about all aspects of ADF application design and planning. If you have any interest in ADF development (and if you don’t, I’m not quite sure why you’re here), you want to join. Seriously.

Last week, I talked about the essentials for doing any client-side component manipulation, as described in Lucas Jellema‘s ODTUG Kaleidoscope 2009 talk, “That’s Rich! Putting a smile on ADF Faces.” This week, I’m going to talk about a couple of simple use cases for client-side programming that he demonstrated.
What I didn’t get a chance to do in that post was talk about the actual tips for client-side component manipulation that Lucas provided. I’m going to do this over the next couple of weeks. This week, I’m going to talk about the essentials for doing any client-side component manipulation. Next week, I’ll talk about some specific component manipulation use cases that Lucas went over in his talk.

This is an (obviously) late post in a series of posts about ODTUG Kaleidoscope 2009. Monday was the least busy day for me at Kaleidoscope–I only attended two presentations, “That’s Rich! Putting a smile on ADF Faces,” by Lucas Jellema, and “Fusion Design Fundamentals,” by Duncan Mills. But it was perhaps the most thought-provoking of my days there. In fact, I have a full three posts worth of stuff to say about just these two talks. Today, I’m going to talk about a dramatic contrast: the two talks, among other things, represented opposite ends of a debate I consider quite important: the advisability, or lack thereof, of using ADF Faces RC client-side components.
The presentation did not make the cut of abstracts selected by Oracle. But if you want to see it at OOW, there’s still a chance! Just vote for the presentation on Oracle Mix (you’ll need to create an Oracle Mix account if you don’t already have one, but it’s free and a good way to meet people in the ADF community).
See you at ODTUG and/or OOW!
