2 Understanding the Web Application Workflow

Developing client-side web applications with Oracle JET is designed to be simple and efficient using the development environment of your choice and Starter Templates to ease the development process.

Oracle JET supports creating web applications from a command-line interface:

  • Before you can create your first Oracle JET web application using the CLI, you must install the prerequisite packages if you haven’t already done so. For details, see Install Oracle JET Tooling.

  • Then, use the Oracle JET command-line interface package (ojet-cli) to scaffold a web application containing either a blank template or a complete pre-configured sample application that you can modify as needed.

  • After you have scaffolded the application, use the ojet-cli to build the application, serve it in a local web browser, and create a package ready for deployment. This approach also supports easily creating hybrid mobile applications.


    For additional information about creating hybrid mobile applications, see Understanding the Hybrid Mobile Application Workflow.

You must not use more than one version of Oracle JET to add components to the same HTML document of your web application. Oracle JET does not support running multiple versions of Oracle JET components in the same web page.
