Oracle ADF or Oracle JET – An Update by Shay Shmeltzer

Back in 2015 I wrote a blog entry to help our customers get a clear picture about the Oracle ADF vs Oracle JET “debate”, over the years I kept pointing people to this writeup as a simple summary of what we are aiming to do and as a guideline for picking the technology you should use. However, the technology world is an ever changing place, and I believe that it is time to do a bit of an update of that entry to reflect the current status.

While the basic distinctions between the two technologies have not changed, specifically:

· ADF for Java developer, JET for JavaScript developer

· ADF is server side framework, JET is client side focused

· ADF is both front and back-end framework, JET is UI layer only

Some of the surrounding eco-system has changed and evolved.

Client-Centric Architecture Momentum

Over the past several years we saw an increase in the adoption of UI development that is focused around JavaScript-based client layer. This is something you can see for example in the results from the Stackoverflow yearly survey – back in 2016 JavaScript was used by 54% of developers and in 2018 the number stood at ~70%.
