Just to take one key issue for Oracle today: accessibility. Each and every application’s UI should be fully accessible and compliant with WCAG standards. Now, complying with WCAG using ADF is not impossible, but if you consider the relative easy building fully accessible components using JQueryUI that sets back ADF significantly. Get the point?
Now Oracle developed OracleJET first-and-foremost as an internal toolkit, to enable rapid development of new UI’s. These UI’s should implement consistently Oracle’s standard Alta UI theme. And of course fully responsive. So Alta UI styling comes as default, responsive. Like with Bootstrap or Google’s Material-UI components – it allows rapidly developing an application. It gained so much internal success at Oracle (there are 100+ UI’s already developed through OracleJET) that Oracle decided to provide it for anybody to use and leverage. Not only customers, but everybody. So licensed under the Universal Permissive License.
Of course, Oracle customer are first-and-foremost targeted. Have purchased Oracle Sales Cloud, and seeking for an elegant way to develop a point-solution comprising a mobile hybrid native app? Sure. OracleJET provides full integration with Cordova for this matter as well as native integration with Netbeans as IDE.
