Preserving user preferences using MDS


Another aspect of reusability is end user reusability. While we made sure that the ADF developer can reuse other developer assets, an end user can store his preferences in a specific store that can be reused and tailored for this user's experience.

The Oracle Metadata Services (MDS) framework allows this functionality to work, and with it, you can create applications that your end users can customize without touching the source code or affecting the ability of the application to be patched or updated.

You should grab this project's recipe by cloning the UsingMDS application from the Git repository.
