Here is a look at Oracle’s MEAP (Mobile Enterprise Application Platform)
With Oracle putting so much effort into ADF and Berkeley DB, developing scalable and reliable mobile applications in a rapid fashion never was quite this simple. Oracle has replaced Oracle Lite with Berkeley DB and the gains there are in performance of the client database itself and a much smaller footprint. Oracle is also expanding support of the devices that the Mobile Server will synchronize with. Now with ADF Mobile Client and enhancements to JDeveloper to allow for deploying mobile applications through the IDE, Oracle has made a one-stop-shop of all your development needs. Due to all this new technology coming into play, look for a lot more posts on this blog to keep you up-to-date on the evolution of the products. I will be providing information on Synchronization, Mobile ADF Client, and Berkeley DB. Also, I will be providing article on migration roadmaps from your exiting Oracle Lite, Webtogo, and Branch Office applications.
Here is a list of components and what they do:
Oracle Mobile Server: Provides database synchronization with data subsetting, application provisioning, and remote device management. The Mobile Server also comes with the development and packaging tools required to deploy mobile applications.
Oracle Berkeley DB: The mobile device database and now with the added support of SQL92 compatibility.
Oracle ADF Mobile Client: Oracle’s Application Development Framework now ported to mobile devices in a client format.
Oracle JDeveloper: Oracle’s Java IDE that ties everything together for the application developers.
