Let’s summarise important points from OOW’17 conference. This year conference was a breakthrough for Oracle JET – most of Oracle Cloud UI’s were implemented with Oracle JET. Oracle ADF is used for Oracle SaaS (Fusion Middleware) back office applications, same as before. There is often misunderstanding in JET vs. ADF comparison. Keep in mind – JET is only UI layer and it can be compared with ADF Faces only. While ADF is much more than UI – ADF BC Model, ADF Task Flows and ADF Bindings.
1. Use JET for front-end apps, with relatively simple complexity but strong requirement for performance and scalability. Back-end can be implemented with ADF BC REST. Typically it would take longer to implement JET UI comparing to ADF Faces (no drag and drop support, unless using Visual Cloud Builder Service for JET)
2. Use ADF Faces for complex and large back-office applications. Some degree of mix between ADF Faces and JET is possible. Back-end should be done in ADF BC. Read the complete article here.
