    Oracle ADF Mobile & Mobile Client

      Hi all,

      I'm researching about Oracle ADF Mobile, and I'm confusing about the below:

      1. Apr 2011, Oracle released the Oracle ADF Mobile client for extending Enterprise-Appliaction to on-device mobile. Mobile Client is a way to sync data on mobile to oracle-database through Oracle-Mobile-Server.

      2. Oct 2012, Oracle released the Oracle ADF Mobile platform for writing mobile-app easier. do not have any update or release for Oracle ADF Mobile Client.

      Can we use the Oracle ADF Mobile and Oracle ADF Mobile client together for writing the application on iOS device (or Android) that select/modify/store data on Oracle database ? If yes, could you give an detail example about that.

      Thanks for your support.

          Oracle has 3 products:  1) Oracle ADF   2) Oracle ADF Mobile 3) Database Mobile Server


          ADF Mobile is an application development framework.  To put it slightly more formally, Oracle ADF Mobile is a Java and HTML5-based mobile development framework that enables developers to build and extend enterprise applications for iOS and Android from a single code base.  Based on a hybrid mobile architecture, ADF Mobile supports access to native device services, enables offline applications and protects enterprise investments from future technology shifts.


          ADF Mobile does NOT come with any synchronization capability.


          Database Mobile Server is a product that allows for client devices to have 2 way synchronization between an Oracle backend and a client.   DMS has clients for Windows, Linux, Blackberry, Android, Windows Mobile, and a pure java client.    As other platforms come out, there will be clients for those as well.    The client is basically a library that gets linked in with your application.
