Key benefits include:

  • Faster, responsive, rich user experiences
  • Built with React (and ability to develop in any front-end JavaScript library)
  • Separation between the presentation layer and the state model for local development and testing
  • Reduce the need for new code: with micro (rather than macro) updates to simplify how experiences are assembled and delivered with reusable, granular components

Understanding Oracle’s OSF

Oracle OSF runs exclusively on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI). OSF implementation also allows for out-of-the-box plug-ins that can be customized to fit the business requirements at hand. The plug-in structure of this Oracle’s open storefront framework ensures the platform is flexible enough to support existing and future business needs.

Focused on site performance, it uses a plugin architecture where multiple plugins are used to perform server-side page rendering. When a page is rendered, it instantly sends data to the shoppers’ browser to be displayed.

Oracle OSF’s cloud-based infrastructure also allows for a faster and more flexible experience by reducing performance issues. Through OSF implementation, you can closely monitor and address any site issues that arise.
