About Oracle JET Data Binding

The Oracle JET framework supports two-way data binding between the View and Model layers in the Model-View-ViewModel (MVVM) design. Data changes in the ViewModel are sent to the UI components, and user input from the UI components is written back into the ViewModel.

The Oracle JET framework uses Knockout to perform the data binding between the UI elements and the ViewModel. The ViewModel normally contains data fields for the UI state as well as references to external data. One of the ways to provide external data is to use the Common Model and Collection API.

Data for an Oracle JET application can come from any web data source that generates JSON data, such as a REST service, Server Sent Event (SSE), or WebSocket. In addition, Oracle JET also provides specific support for integrating web service data based on the Oracle REST standard.

The Oracle JET framework also provides UI components for the View layer that include properties for data binding with Knockout. For additional information about Oracle JET's UI components and data binding options, see Understanding Oracle JET User Interface Basics.
