ADF LOV Auto Suggest Functionality

ADF Faces LOV component can be easily enabled with auto suggest functionality. This is really powerful feature and should save time for user to search for required list values.

Auto suggest can be configured to be invoked only when certain number of characters is entered. I have configured Job ID list to trigger auto suggest, when two or more characters are entered. No auto suggest with single character:

Two or more characters entered - auto (more...)

Oracle JET Composite Component and ADF BC REST

I decided to implement sample app for JET composite component. This is powerful thing, it allows to build pretty much any UIs with HTML - package as components and reuse in the apps. Not only UI - JET composite component gets data as any other standard JET component. This allows to build your own components for forms, tables, various widgets. It allows to simplify code complexity, you could hide frequently used code into JET components (more...)

ADF Regions and Shared Data Control Bindings Use Case

While teaching ADF trainings and talking to ADF developers, often I can see people think about ADF bindings as about some mistery and try to avoid using full potential of ADF Data Control. I would like to give simple, but practical example in this post, which describes how to use ADF bindings and access these bindings across different ADF regions.

This diagram shows how sample application ( is implemented:

There are two (more...)

I have followed instructions from the cookbook and implemented editable JET table on top of ADF BC REST service. Row with key 201 is (more...)

JDeveloper Bug and Workaround – Wrong Instance Name for Method Action Binding

After upgrade to JDeveloper I have noticed issue related to Method Action binding instance name. This is not ADF bug, but JDeveloper bug. JDeveloper sets incorrect name for Method Action binding instance name.

If you are going to create custom method in VO/AM and expose it through interface to be called in bindings layer - there will be similar error as below on runtime:

First thing first, here you can download source code - This archive contains ADF BC REST application (more...)

BPM Worklist API and Custom ADF Application

I have updated my sample app with BPM API usage in ADF application to Originally this was developed with ADF/BPM - Dynamic ADF Buttons Solution for Oracle BPM Outcomes. There are several changes in BPM libraries usage. I will describe it all step by step.

Download sample application - This archive contains both BPM and ADF app. BPM process implements two roles - request holiday (more...)
