New HTML5 and Java-Based Framework Enables Developers to Build Hybrid Mobile Applications for Multiple Platforms, Including iOS and Android

Oracle today announced the general availability of Oracle Application Development Framework (ADF) Mobile, an extension of the Oracle Application Development Framework.

Part of Oracle Fusion Middleware, Oracle ADF Mobile is a HTML5 and Java-based framework that enables developers to easily build, deploy, and extend enterprise applications for mobile environments, including iOS and Android, from a single code base. Based on a next-generation hybrid mobile development architecture, Oracle ADF Mobile allows developers to increase productivity, while protecting investments, by enabling code reuse through a flexible, open standards-based architecture.

Oracle ADF Mobile based applications enable enterprises across industries to meet frequently changing mobile requirements by allowing developers to rapidly and visually develop applications once, and deploy to multiple devices and platforms.

Developers can leverage the latest Oracle ADF Mobile capabilities to:

  • Extend enterprise applications to mobile devices: Developers can simplify their application infrastructure through a common, proven platform that spans server, desktop and mobile applications, and secure mobile applications with end-to-end security and encryption.
  • Write once and deploy to many: With Oracle ADF Mobile, developers can work on consistent cross-platform interfaces using familiar web technologies such as HTML5, JavaScript and CSS, while leveraging deep access to native device services such as the camera, GPS, contacts, etc., through this hybrid mobile application architecture. A lightweight Java Virtual Machine (JVM) is also embedded to support the application logic written in Java. The unique combination of these standards-based technologies enables rapid development of mobile applications to iOS and Android, and shields developers from having to learn a new platform specific language and technologies.
  • Increase productivity: Developers can expedite time-to-market by developing one application that can be deployed to multiple platforms through this hybrid mobile application architecture. Quicker development is also enabled through a visual and declarative programming model that is already common to Oracle ADF developers. Oracle ADF and Oracle ADF Mobile share the same declarative programming model. This allows ADF developers to create mobile applications without having to learn new skills. Developers can realize increased productivity and reduced maintenance costs by using Oracle ADF Mobile’s rich library of prebuilt and proven components that give the look and feel of device-native applications.
  • Protect investments: An adaptive hybrid application architecture gives developers the ability to protect application investments from technology shifts and develop mobile applications with existing skills and resources on proven technologies like HMTL5, JavaScript, Java and Oracle ADF.

“With Oracle ADF Mobile, developers can spend less time re-writing code and more time building the most advanced enterprise mobile applications,” said Chris Tonas, Vice President Application Development Tools, Oracle. “Oracle ADF Mobile is tightly integrated with the Oracle Fusion Middleware product portfolio, supports Oracle Fusion Applications, and can easily integrate non-Oracle-based applications. With a rich, visual and declarative programming model, Oracle ADF Mobile helps developers increase their productivity and deliver applications faster—you write applications once and deploy on multiple mobile platforms, including iOS and Android.”
