Use ADF Objects as the source
Oracle Transactional Business Intelligence uses ADF Objects as the source for accessing the data within Customer Experience Solution (CX) Cloud and from Human Capital Management Cloud. .
BI platform was enhanced to support the ADF connection as source when you define a connection pool. The connection is an URL to a weblogic server where the BI broker is running and the ADF object definitions are hosted.
BI server during runtime takes the request from the users, generate the ADF query, and send ADF query to the weblogic server. ADF query is a request with XML format that describe the name of the ADF objects.
Using ADF Objects has the following benefits
- Encapsulate the application logic
- Get better performance with ADF prunning
- Data Security
