ADF gives you a huge library of JSF components that you can use when presenting and editing data, page layouts and popups, among other things.

ADF also takes care of multi-browser support, making it easy for your application to display perfectly on different browsers, tablets and smartphones.

3. You can rely on Oracle.

There is a lot to be said about software that comes from a big company such as Oracle.  But what makes Oracle ADF even better is that Oracle itself uses ADF in its own application development and software.  As such, you can be sure that Oracle ADF is very stable and is of very high quality.

Plus you also have extensive documentation that not only covers all the features and functionality of ADF, but is also updated every time there is a new ADF release.

Not only that, you are sure that Oracle ADF will be around for a long time.  This is specifically important for programmers who are looking to get more skills that they can utilize not only in their current jobs but also in future employment opportunities.

4. Great for productivity.

When you have pre-written code and design patterns, and out of the box functionality, you can plan, develop and implement your applications easily and rapidly.  Even if you are working with beginners and amateur Java programmers, they can easily do some parts of your app using ADF’s declarative interface.  Those in your team who have advanced Java skills can now focus on the functionality that your company is requiring.

5. ADF is designed for heavy-duty enterprise apps. 

Even if you have a demanding enterprise application requirement, you can easily use ADF for it.  In fact, a lot of professional developers use it for their own projects.

6. Open.

ADF makes use of a lot of Java EE standards and it runs on standard EE application servers.  As such, ADF may have its own proprietary extensions, but much of it stays open.  Further, you could use it with JDeveloper and Eclipse (via the OEPE plugin).  You could also deploy it on cloud providers such as Amazon EC2.
