I recently had a interesting mail conversation with couple of senior guys of Oracle regarding Deployments of ADF project in R12.Here is the conversation:
Mukul---->Hi Steven, I have worked in both OAF , ADF Faces. I would like to know is it possible to deploy a standalone adf faces j2ee application in R12 OC4J server. If yes, can anybody on this blog provide a article/ metalink note regarding this! This is really important for R12 customers to know whether they can move their custom applications in ADF or not!
Steven Chan(Steven Chan, Sr. Director, Oracle Applications Technology Integration,Oracle)---->
How are you making out with the whitepaper on this subject? Can you share any information with Mukul until its release?
As far as I know, this has not been tried out internally yet, but there is nothing technically preventing you from achieving deploying an ADF app within an EBS OC4J server. I've also cc'ed Shay Shmeltzer who is the Product Manager for ADF, and who might have come across customers who have already done this.

I also don't know if this has been tested.
That said - as long as the OC4J that is included with EBS is the same version as the public external one and the ADF Libraries are the same this should work.
Hence, in a nut shell deploying ADF project in R12 OC4J server has not yet been tried even in internal Oracle..! Actually I was facing some problem in deployment... anyways.... if I will get time.. will try this again and will let all know a common solution.
Regarding deployment of any ADF project in any standard j2ee server its pretty straight forward will put the screenshots for this soon with description!
