Summary


In this chapter, you have seen some examples of how to add Java code to your application to implement the specific business logic your application needs. There are many, many more places and ways to add logic –– as you work with ADF, you will continually come across new business requirements that force you to figure out how to add code to your application in new ways. Fortunately, there are other books, websites, online tutorials, and training that you can use to add to your ADF skillset –– refer to http://www.adfessentials.com for a starting point.

Until now, we have kept everything in one application workspace in JDeveloper. That's fine for small applications, but if you are building something larger than the little demo application in this book, you will need a way to split your application up into independent modules. That's the topic of Chapter 5, Building Enterprise Applications.
