    How to develope DataModel and View Layer simultaniously in ADF

    Knidhi-Oracle
      Hi
      I am new to the ADF, I have doubt like, there are two team going to work on ADF project, one team(team1) will work on Data Model project another team(team2) will work on View Layer.

      Doubts:

      1. Can these team start their work simultaneously?.
      2. If it so, Since team2 activity fully depends on data model, how this is going to work?
      3. Assume team2 uses the Placeholder data control to create their dummy data control and continue their work. After team1 completes the real Data Model how they can integrate with View Layer.


      thanks

          I know this is too late a reply but still for sake of someone else's reference.

          Yes this can be done ...
          I would suggest the View Layer guys to concentrate on the design (like Number of TaskFlows , scopes of Beans , layouts) before using placeholer dataControl
          They can develop templates , css and custom skins , menu models as need be which hardly need data controls
          Navigation can be created so that time can be saved later on this e.g. trains

            ok fine.nice to hear this but here, somewhat differ from you.
            1. Can these team start their work simultaneously?.
            yes you can. before that,one single project(in server machine) should be configured with cvs or svn,
            for purpose to get changes/updation from one to another start their work


            there is oracle document for cvs part1 - part2 (step by step).
            sorry i lost oracle cvs document. please google it out.
            svn:

            cvs:

            2. If it so, Since team2 activity fully depends on data model, how this is going to work?
            this task will not pretty easily sometimes. so please be careful

            let i taken an example(basis on their requirement).
            if 'x' person create eo and vo and complete the AM means
            then he/she should commit the changes. then 'y'user get the updates.
            'y' user receive all of the updates to start the design work.

            but end of the work or a day the 'y' user commit the changes what he had done.
            if he('y') done means 'x' can get all design pages.

            so finally all of the people in your team get your project (locally can able run your project).
            these process should be in continous . if any one lost from process or anything did means, there some other way to get back to project.

            before you people get into project with team mate. you should go with trail process until your team mates learn. or else leads painful(from my experince).
            3. Assume team2 uses the Placeholder data control to create their dummy data control and continue their work. >After team1 completes the real Data Model how they can integrate with View Layer.
            from my experience, am saying it may not good/right approach.
            better some other experts will comment out it about this point.
