I was asked on Quora “I have been given a choice to work either in ADF or PLSQL. What should I choose?”
My answer is ADF, for many reasons:
- The programming language in ADF applications is Java, which is . That means whatever you learn is applicable for the rest of your career.
- PL/SQL is only used in Oracle databases, meaning you will be building skills that will only be valuable in the subset of companies using the Oracle database seriously
- ADF development is a sought-after specialty. Just google “Oracle ADF Developer” to see a list of open jobs.
- There are many PL/SQL developers with 10+ years of experience, and the amount of PL/SQL work out there is declining. You’ll be competing with very capable and experienced PL/SQL programmers for this work.
