Jet with ES6 syntax by BPM & SOA Solutions


As we are using Oracle Jet more and more these days we thought it would be great to add ECMAScript 6 (ES6 for short) support by creating a base project to serve as a starting point for application development.

What is ES6?

From Wikipedia:

ECMAScript (ES) is a trademarked scripting-language specification standardized by Ecma International in ECMA-262 and ISO/IEC 16262. It was based on JavaScript, which now tracks ECMAScript. It is commonly used for client-side scripting on the World Wide Web. Other implementations of ECMAScript include JScript and ActionScript.

The latest version of ECMAScript – ES6 – was finalised in June 2015, adding significant syntax improvements and features coming from other languages like python. Not surprisingly, this new version was immediately adopted by the community, even without incomplete browser support. To cope with the problem a conversion process from ES6 to ES5 can be run when building an application.

Why use it?

The list below summarises our top ES6 features – feel free to check out the ES6 standard for the full specification.

· Classes ES6 classes simplify structure and make code much more readable than the prototype-based pattern, plus adding inheritance support. Read the complete article here.
