Main References To Learn Oracle ADF

Oracle ADF is a new technology and many people want to learn this and they want to know the main references to learn this technology. Many of them ask a question "How can I start to learn Oracle ADF?" This post will help them and take their hand to learn this technology.
You should at least know Java (J2SE) and it will be better to set with anyone (good in ADF) to explain the basic of ADF to you or take any course for ADF first because if you start from scratch it will be difficult for you to understand ADF.

I prefer, initially you can take a course for ADF, this course will open the door for your mind to go ahead and learn ADF by your self.

I have created a course in Udemy for anyone like to learn ADF. I covered almost all ADF life cycle and at end of the course I create a complete ADF application to show you how you can develop a complete ADF application. By end of this course you should be able to create a complete ADF application by yourself.

ADF can be the first step to Oracle Fusion Middleware world.

This is the course URL

The main references are:

1- JDeveloper home in oracle web site

in this site you will find this sections:

- "Overview" this section will explain the overview of some topics as JDeveloper , ADF ... and I prefered for any one does not know anything about JDveloper and ADF read this section first.
