Grazed from ProgrammableWeb. Author: Michael Vizard.

Thanks to the proliferation of REST APIs across the enterprise and the adoption of JavaScript on both the client and server sides of applications, Oracle envisions the emergence of multiple tiers of cloud computing services across the enterprise in 2015.

The challenge is finding a way to make it possible to reuse JavaScript code across multiple applications. To address that issue, the Oracle Mobile Application Framework enables developers to build JavaScript applications on top of a Java Virtual Machine.
