ADF Essentials: at first sight all looks great

A few weeks ago Oracle released new, free distribution of Application Development Framework. To the surprise of developers the ADF Essentials contains a key technologies from "adult" ADF framework distribution:
  • ADF Faces 
  • ADF Data Visualization Tools 
  • ADF Controller 
  • ADF Model/Databinding 
  • ADF Business Components
If you believe in the media announcements and commentary, only ADF security is not included in the set. But ... there are some additional elements not contained in ADF Essentials pack:
  • ADF Security 
  • ADF Desktop Integration 
  • ADF Mobile Browser / Trinidad 
  • ADF Swing 
  • ADF Business Composer 
  • MetaData Services (MDS)(MetaData Services (MDS) may only be used in read-only mode with ADF Essentials. Use of MDS for cross-session personalization or persisted customization with ADF Essentials is not permitted.) 
I not verified till now the ADF Essentials functionality in practice, but I would check this ASAP:) Anyway I can only tell you: at first sight all looks pretty good.

You can download Oracle ADF Essentials libraries from this page:
