Abstract: There are many parts to the Oracle Fusion architecture. There is a great deal of confusion about how to get started. Making core project decisions can be a daunting task. Should you use Oracle's Faces components or rely on JSP/Struts? For complex process flows, what are the pros and cons of using BPEL? What is the role of server-side code in web architecture? Although the ADF architecture is sound, it may be advisable to use the industry-standard JSP/Struts components rather than the still-evolving Faces architecture. BPEL has its place but, if used inappropriately, it can result in a poorly performing system with flawed architecture. Although it is possible to move all logic into Java in the middle tier, there are compelling reasons to implement logic in database server-side code. This presentation provides an overview of the Fusion architecture, outlines the possible development options, and lists reasons for the choices our organization has made in building Fusion applications.
