I have completed my OOW'16 session [CON2388] today. For those of you who could not attend it, check slides online (I will post sample code later, read more about the session here):

Dynamic Flying Dashboard UI in ADF

I took my old sample application implemented in 2010 - Dynamic Flying Dashboard UI Shell and upgraded it to recent ADF It runs pretty well, without major changes - this proves ADF migration between releases can be smooth (well, not always in practice - but let's be positive).

I have recorded gif to give you an impression how it runs and how UI switch works in ADF UI panel dashboard component:


Workaround for ADF Match Media Behavior Tag

If you run ADF application with adaptive UI implemented by af:matchMediaBehavior tag (ADF 12.2.1 Responsive UI Improvements), most likely you will face Null Pointer Exception in Match Media Behavior tag class. Apparently af:matchMediaBehavior tag expects default value to be set on UI component. If default value is not set explicitly, it fails to read it and generates exception (this was not the case in ADF 12.2. (more...)

Generic BigDecimal Formatter in ADF

I have implemented couple of improvements for BigDecimal formatter based on ADF Originally formatter was implemented and described in this post - Handling Format for BigDecimal Numbers in ADF BC. New improvements: option to support trailing zeros and disabling number rounding.

1. Support for trailing zeros

If you type number 3000.10, BigDecimal type attribute will keep it as 3000.10. But in database it will be saved without trailing zero (more...)

Oracle JET Hybrid Receiving Mobile Cloud Service Notification

Oracle JET Hybrid enabled with Cordova Push plugin can receive notifications sent from Oracle Mobile Cloud Service (MCS). You should read how to setup infrastructure in this article - Your first Push notification based Oracle JET Hybrid application!. I will focus on implementation steps and will provide working sample app for download.

Sample JET hybrid application provides login functionality. During login we register device ID with MCS service, this allows to receive notifications:

After login (more...)

Oracle JET and Mobile Cloud Service Authentication with OAuth

I will describe with practical example, how to authenticate against MCS in Oracle JET using OAuth. This is based on sample app from my previous post - Oracle JET and Application Container Cloud (with MCS Integration) (download sample app from there). It would be useful to read through MCS documentation - Authenticating with OAuth in Individual REST Calls.

Oracle JET sample application provides login form:

If login is successful, REST call is done and MCS (more...)

Oracle JET and Application Container Cloud (with MCS Integration)

I have deployed JET application with Mobile Cloud Service (MCS) integration into Oracle Application Container Cloud service. It works perfectly well, you can try to access it yourself (until my trial cloud account expires on 15th of August) by URL: https://rsjetnodejsapp-deoracleem99369.apaas.us2.oraclecloud.com.

Follow excellent blog article written by Lucas Jellema on details how to deploy JET into Application Container Cloud - Deploying an Oracle JET application to Application Container Cloud and running (more...)

Oracle JET Hybrid – Calling Oracle Mobile Cloud REST

Oracle JET allows to build mobile hybrid apps, based on Cordova and deploy to Android or iOS platform. Read more about it here - Go Mobile with Oracle JET As Easy As 1 2 3. In my previous post I have described how to call REST endpoint running on Oracle MCS from JET - Calling Mobile Cloud REST Service from Oracle JET. Its time to demonstrate the same from JET hybrid app, running on my (more...)

Calling Mobile Cloud REST Service from Oracle JET

Let's take a look how we can consume REST service exposed from Mobile Cloud Service (MCS). I will show how you could display data coming from MCS endpoint in Oracle JET. I will be using simple scenario in this post, based on HTTP Basic authentication method offered by MCS. In my next post I plan to review more advanced authentication described in this article - Hybrid Mobile Apps: Using the Mobile Cloud Service JavaScript SDK (more...)

Oracle MCS with ADF BC REST Connector

We already learned how to deploy and access ADF BC REST services from Oracle Java Cloud - ADF BC REST Running Live in Oracle Java Cloud. It's time to see how ADF BC REST can be consumed by Oracle Mobile Cloud Service (MCS). In my point of view, key benefit of MCS is ability to simplify Web Service access for mobile clients, by aggregating these Web Services from different sources and (more...)

ADF BC REST Running Live in Oracle Java Cloud

It passed almost two years since my previous post about Oracle Java Cloud and ADF - End-To-End ADF Cloud Deployment Process. There is huge improvement in Oracle Cloud, great progress done in these two years by Oracle. Access and management of Oracle Cloud environment is so smooth now, it is even hard to say you are working with your own on premise servers or cloud machines. This is great, I'm impressed - well done Oracle.


Serving Oracle JET Application from WebLogic

Oracle JET application can be served from WebLogic as static content (HTML/JavaScript), JET code will be downloaded and executed on the client. Read more about packaging and deploying JET applications in developer guide - Packaging and Deploying Web Applications.

Here is demo JET application served on WebLogic server, port 7101. JET index.html page is referenced through application context root, registered on WebLogic during deployment of static content:

Required steps:

1. Generate JET application from (more...)

Workaround for ADF BC REST Custom Method Configuration

This post is based on JDEV, it seems like there is issue with ADF BC REST custom method definition in this release. I'm glad it is not runtime issue, but related to design time JDEV wizard incorrect functionality. I will explain how to bypass it, when you want to expose custom REST method in

Sample application (ADFBCRestApp_v8.zip) implements custom method, exposed through ADF BC (more...)

ADF BC REST Authentication with JSESSIONID Cookie

I have described how to apply ADF Security for ADF BC REST in my previous post - Oracle JET and ADF BC REST Basic Authentication. I will show how you can authenticate on first request and for the next requests rely on JSESSIONID cookie from the first request. This is useful for mobile clients and JET, there is no need to keep user credentials during requests (enough to keep cookie), as this is sensitive data.


ADF Improved Support for Programmatic View Object

ADF brings improved support for programmatic VO creation. Such VO's are handy, when we want to base VO on alternative data source, such as PL/SQL ref cursor. In ADF developer don't need to worry which framework methods to override, now it is enough to extend from Programmatic View Object Implementation class. This is special framework helper class, designed for programmatic VO support. See example below.

Sample application (more...)

Red Samurai Oracle JET Mobile Hybrid App Live on Android

We have implemented Oracle JET mobile hybrid app in less than 30 minutes and deployed it to Android device. This was done as a demo to the customer and could prove Oracle JET offers effective approach for hybrid mobile app development. Development process isn't much complicated with JET once you familiarize yourself with JavaScript development process and learn how to interact with REST services.

Red Samurai app based on JET (using out of the box (more...)

Go Mobile with Oracle JET As Easy As 1 2 3

Oracle JET allows to build and run mobile hybrid applications. It is using Cordova to run on mobile device and provide access to device services. This is cool and what is great about it - it allows to get you started with mobile development in minutes. Besides all this - it is free.

I will describe steps I followed, to generate JET mobile hybrid app and run it in local browser (in the next posts (more...)

ADF BC Range Paging and ADF UI Table Pagination Use Case

ADF UI table pagination and ADF BC range paging sounds like a perfect combination. But to make it work perfect, a bit of extra effort is required. In the case of search/edit implementation, it can't remember updated record when navigating back to search screen (VO runs with Range Paging and UI table is displayed with pagination). I will explain how to solve it and show how to keep UI table displaying current page and prevent (more...)
