I'm happy to say a long labour has finally born a series of articles on OTN entitled Adapting Oracle Application Development Framework and Subversion to Your Enterprise's Needs.
This article series goes beyond simply explaining how to use SVN with Oracle JDeveloper 11g. It is intended to give development teams, managers, and change-control officers a heads-up on the complete end-to-end process of building, extending, and maintaining Oracle ADF applications through typical enterprise Development, Test, and Production environments.
And to think when I originally started that "article" I thought I could keep it under 2000 words. Sheesh!
