What is most valuable?

The power of Oracle ADF is in the business components.

What needs improvement?

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I did not use another Java framework prior to this one, although I am trying to learn other technology now. I am working on Spring Boot.

What other advice do I have?

My advice for anybody who is implementing Oracle ADF is to read and study all of the material that is available. This is a product that I recommend. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
