Hi,

At this moment we wanna start migrating an ADF/UIX application. Can somebody give advice which is the best template for the new application. I'm thinking about facelets or about the template within oracle ADF/FACES?

An other question I'm wondering. Is it still wise to use ADF as business layer, or is it wise to use EJB's?

Hello,
My favorite is ICEFaces, good choice also could be RichFaces (JBoss) or MyFaces(Apache). All these "templates" work with backing beans, but you can use your own ADF BL or EJBs it's up to you how to bound.

Hi,
Templates cannot be defined with IceFaces or RichFaces, you should use Facelets for that purpose.
I have used RichFaces, JSF RI 1.2 and Facelets, and I have manly positive experiences with those frameworks.

Hope this helps,
Drazen.
