Automatic ADF Popup Opening on Fragment Load

I had a post about opening ADF Popup on page load - Opening ADF PopUp on Page Load. Approach is quite straightforward, developer needs to use showPopupBehavior operation with appropriate trigger type. When it comes to ADF Popup opening on fragment load, implementation is a bit more complex. There is a known method to implement hidden text field and in the getter method call your custom logic - getter will be executed when fragment loads. (more...)

Background REST Service Access with A-Team Mobile Persistence Accelerator

REST service transfers light data, but service execution time could bring significant delay to the enterprise mobile application. I have already introduced you to the A-Team Mobile Persistence Accelerator (AMPA) in previous post - REST Service Access with A-Team Mobile Persistence Accelerator. Based on AMPA author - Steven Davelaar suggestions, I will post today updated application, where REST service call will be handled in background. This will allow mobile user to continue working with the (more...)

ADF BC Property Set to Group Attribute Hints

There is one ADF BC component not mentioned often - Property Set. This is a bag of properties/hints, it can be applied for EO/VO attributes. Frequently used hints can be defined in Property Set once, without repeating the same for each attribute. This simplifies maintenance, if there will be a change required in the future - much easier to change it in single place. I will show below a practical example, where Property Set is (more...)

REST Service Access with A-Team Mobile Persistence Accelerator

A-Team Mobile Persistence Accelerator (AMPA) works on top of Oracle Mobile Application Framework (MAF) and provides tools to simplify consumption of REST services. It enables transparent persistent layer usage on the device with the option of synchronising offline data with the server side. In this post, I will be testing AMPA in the context of the use case implemented previously - MAF 2.1 Alta Mobile UI and Oracle Mobile Suite. Working MAF application, where (more...)

Red Samurai ADF Performance Audit Tool v 3.4 – ADF Task Flow Statistics with Oracle DMS Servlet Integration

We have integrated Red Samurai ADF Performance Audit Tool with Oracle DMS Spy Servlet. Integration is dynamic and doesn't require any extra configuration. It brings out of the box information about ADF Task Flow usage and performance. This means we are analysing from now on not only ADF BC performance data, but ADF Controller data also.

DMS Spy Servlet context is accessed in certain intervals and we are not only displaying DMS data, but storing (more...)

ADF BC Range Paging and REST Pagination

In this post I would like to explore and integrate two thing - ADF BC Range Paging and REST service pagination. It would inefficient to retrieve entire set of data in the REST service, ideally should be available option to specify number of rows and range number to fetch. ADF BC allows to query VO in Range Paging mode - SQL query will be constructed with row numbers, to query data in certain range of (more...)

MAF 2.1 Alta Mobile UI and Oracle Mobile Suite

This post is about Alta Mobile UI and MAF 2.1. I was using Oracle Work Better mobile application as a reference, along with Alta Mobile UI Design Guidelines. This is based on my previous posts about Oracle Mobile Suite and MAF 2.1 integration, read more here - Oracle Mobile Suite - Web Service Performance Optimisation with Result Caching. You could also use Alta UI 12c with regular ADF Web applications, check more here (more...)

Oracle Mobile Suite – Web Service Performance Optimisation with Result Caching

One of the main advantages of Oracle Mobile Suite - Service Bus and SOAP/REST web service transformation (more here - Oracle Mobile Suite Service Bus REST and ADF BC SOAP). In addition you will get very nice performance improvement, there is out of the box caching for Web Service resultset with Coherence. I'm going to demonstrate how it works, all out of the box - really simple.

You could define caching for external service (more...)

MAF 2.1 – Debugger Improvements and Mobile REST Client

I was blogging previously about Oracle Mobile Suite and REST service transformation from ADF BC SOAP service. Today I'm going to blog the next step in the same series - MAF client consuming REST service exposed from Oracle Mobile Suite ESB. I'm going to highlight improvements in debugging process for MAF, provided with the latest 2.1 release. I had couple of challenges implementing and mapping programmatic MAF client for REST service, all these were (more...)

How To Add New Operation in Oracle Mobile Suite Service Bus REST Service

I will use sample app from my previous blog post as the basis - Oracle Mobile Suite Service Bus REST and ADF BC SOAP. I was describing there the main steps in defining transformation from SOAP WS based on ADF BC to the REST WS interface. I will dive a little bit deeper into the same topic and will explain how to add new operation to the REST WS interface.

Here you can download updated (more...)

Reading MAF iOS Simulator Logging Output

It could be very handy to know how and where to read MAF logging output from iOS simulator. This is not that obvious to find logging output on Mac OS system. All log is written into application.log file, this file is located inside temporary application directory. I will explain how to locate this directory and how to open application.log file. You can read more about MAF testing and logging here - 18.5 (more...)

How To Start a Case in Oracle Adaptive Case Management 12c

Blog reader was asking to describe how to start a new case in Oracle ACM 12c. You can read my previous blog post on ACM 12c topic - Adaptive Case Management 12c and ADF Human Tasks. There are multiple ways to start a case, depends if you want just to test the case or really use it. I would recommend to use SoapUI to test the case. In the real scenario, case most likely will (more...)

Oracle Mobile Suite Service Bus REST and ADF BC SOAP

One of the key parts of Oracle Mobile Suite 12c offering is Service Bus product. This is logical choice - Service Bus allows to transform complex SOAP Web Service data into simplified REST format, preferred by mobile client. I think it is essential to use Service Bus, when implementing enterprise mobile applications. It makes sense to learn how Oracle Service Bus works. I would recommend to start from Steven Davelaar excellent tutorial article, available here (more...)

Custom ADF Application with New ADF 12c Alta UI

I was inspired by recently published WorkBetter application with ADF 12c Alta UI demo (you can read more about Alta UI and download WorkBetter application from here - Oracle Alta UI). I have decided to create my own application, using the same guidelines as described by Alta UI. While WorkBetter application is based on EJB, my application is using regular ADF BC model. Right now it displays a list of employees from HR schema (more...)

Configuring MDS Customisation Layer and Layer Value Combination in ADF

With this post I would like to dive a bit deeper into MDS customisation and layer combination handling. By default, there is defined customisation layer - site. Typically we set our own customisation values for this layer, as a result - all customisations usually are stored under site layer. There could be situations, when more advanced setup would be required - to be able to control layer and layer value combination in a custom way. (more...)

How To Set EAR Upload Size for Oracle Enterprise Manager

By default, there is a limit for EAR upload size (~40 MB) in Enterprise Manager. If your ADF application is fairly big, you may face this limitation and will not be able to deploy through Enterprise Manager. Deployment for large EAR would work through WebLogic console, WLST script or directly from JDEV, however sometimes you may need to deploy through Enterprise Manager. I will describe in this post, how you could increase the limit - (more...)
