Improving Scrolling Performance in ADF Read-Only Tables with Row Selection Timeout

There is great new feature available in ADF 11g PS7 and ADF 12c - option to enable row selection timeout for ADF read-only tables. By default, when user is pressing up/down keyboard keys - every time row gets selected, even if user is navigating through multiple records, before selecting the one he needs. With row selection timeout enabled, table rows will not be selected while scrolling, until scrolling stops and required record gets selected. This (more...)

Accessing Custom Attribute Property from ADF UI Expression

You may not know, but it is possible to access custom property defined for the VO/EO attribute from ADF UI expression. This may turn useful, when implementing custom generic functionality and standard attributes are not enough. In this example, I'm using custom property - alternativeName, in real use case this will be something else. Here I will pass alternative name for the attribute through this property:

Custom property defined for the attribute, can be accessed (more...)

ADF BC Application Module Instance Timeout and Web Session Timeout Dependency

What happens with AM instance, when Web session times out? I would like to answer this question. To find an answer, I have developed sample application with special settings for AM configuration - This is important to understand, because we should try to avoid frequent AM passivations, same as frequent AM activations. Passivations consumes server resources and delays request processing for current active users.

We already know - when AM idle instance timeout (more...)

Simple Example for ADF Active Data Service

Active Data Service in ADF is very useful functionality, it allows to push data to the UI, without extra refresh/reload. However, due to its complexity, is not used too often. My goal is to provide as much as possible simple example for ADS use case in this post. In the future posts, I plan to post updated samples with more complex use case implementations.

ADS is configured in adf-config.xml file, here you can download (more...)

ADF Dynamic ADF BC – Loading Multiple Instances (Nr. 100 in 2013)

This is Nr. 100 post in 2013 !

We learned how to build dynamic ADF BC passivation/activation safe in the previous post - ADF Dynamic ADF BC - Surviving Passivation/Activation Events. There is one more trick to learn - how to reload and open UI with dynamic ADF multiple times. This (more...)

ADF Dynamic ADF BC – Surviving Passivation/Activation Events

ADF dynamic ADF BC and dynamic ADF UI implementation is useful functionality and is required almost in every larger project. Primary area where this functionality is applied - report parameters screens, instead of building hundreds of static report parameter screens for every report, we can build one dynamic and regenerate (more...)
