OAF : - Oracle Applications Framework Version : - 9.0.

3 NOTE: - For OAF install Jdeveloper (developed by Java & J2ee for E-Business Suite). Architecture of OAF: OAF follows the MVC (Model View Controller) Architecture. Model (BC4J Components) View (User Interface xml) Controller (Developed by Java Classes) What are BC4J Components? BC4J Components are as follows AM: Application Module VO: View Object EO: Entity Object VL: View Links

What is Onion Structure?


The above structure is the Onion Structure; in which AM (Application Module) interact with the VO (View Object) and VO interacts with EO (Entity Object) and EO interacts with DB (Data Base). NOTE: • EO can only interact with the Data Base. • A page can have only one AM and AM can have number of VO and EO’s. • To display simple page no need of VO and EO, only AM is enough.
