In JDeveloper 12c, it is possible to run SOA Suite on the InternalWLS, which is a great feature. However, once you have done this, your domain will be filled with SOA extensions. Meaning the server start up time will increase drastically.
When you do both ADF & SOA development, this can be annoying when you just want to run your ADF application and the IntegratedWLS is busy starting up the SOA domain. One way to (more...)

I mentioned dynamic stretching table height with the autoHeightRows property. However, I have noticed people are having more troubles with stretching the height of the table.
This time I will focus on stretching your table to fill the total page height. We start with a simple ADF table on the employee table, showing all employees. Although I have seen more complex questions, including regions and more components in the structure, it (more...)
Today Oracle published our article about the ADF EMG XML Data Control. With the article, also comes an extensive two part tutorial, go check them out at OTN:

Sometimes you want to cancel your Integrated WebLogic Server, however, if you do this while a deployment is currently going on, you might run into trouble. The log window will not tell you anymore than a remote deployment failed and that the Application can not be run:
You need to clear some directories in your JDevHome before the application deployment works again. Before clearing the directories, make sure you close JDeveloper.
Go to the folder: (more...)
Working in an IT project, means working with version control. A lot of times, this means subversion in combination with Tortoise SVN. In bigger projects it sometimes happens there are folders in the tree structure that you are not really interested in.
It is a good things, that you can exclude this folders from your update, so you don’t get distracted by de commits done on folders you don’t care about.
In JDeveloper, it can be helpful to set up code snippets to be of easy use later. Personally I use this mainly to set up code snippets for demo purposes and this is rather easy to set up.
First of all, if not already open, open your Components Window in JDeveloper:
Now open the file that you want to create the code snippet from, this can be any file in JDeveloper as example I opened (more...)
During UKOUG Tech14
in Liverpool, Wilfred
and I had a presentation
about how to create your own Custom ADF Component. Since we were busy on preparing the presentation there were no blogs about these beforehand.
I thought it would be nice to give a small recap, for anyone interested in going into creating Custom ADF Components.
In our sample application we created an ADF Component called ‘multi select’ which offers the user the ability to (more...)

I talked about scoping breakpoints for debugging purposes, next to scoping breakpoints JDeveloper has more interesting debugging features to offer.
I created a simple example to show both the watchpoint as well as the beep functionality. To illustrate this, I created a page with an inputText and a button, both bound to a backingBean.
This is the jsf code:
The code from the bean is also pretty straight forward:
Being an ADF developer, off course a lot of my focus and attention went to the ADF related sessions. I left OOW with a mixed feeling about the ADF sessions. On the downside I felt there was not a lot of attention for ADF during the OOW conference. You see ADF or ADF related features during almost all the presentations, whether it is the Cloud, SOA Suite and Service Bus or MAF, but not a (more...)
Oracle Open World was once again very inspiring, last week I’ve been summarizing my own notes. I decided to share them with the world, if not only for me to find them back in my own blog archive in the (near) future.
As you might have guessed, there was a lot going on about the cloud. So much, it was almost confusing. The most interesting clouds that stayed with me after OOW14 where:
Since I am fairly new to the Oracle Service Bus I gathered a lot of information about this product. Most of it is not shocking and has been mentioned already, but this gave me a nice summarized overview of what 12c has to offer in comparing to 11g.JDeveloper
Since the 12.1.3 release, you don’t need eclipse anymore to create your service bus projects. Just as for the SOA Suite you can do (more...)
Today at Oracle Open World
, we (Wilfred
and myself) officially announced the 1.0.0 version of the ADF EMG XML Data Control. Check out the presentation
on slideshare if you missed it.
You can get this extension through the JDeveloper Help -> Check for Updates menu. Make sure you select the 'Open Source and Partner Extensions' checkbox:
There you should see the 'ADF EMG Data Control' extension:
A brief description for those (more...)
For those contributing and using the ADF EMG Audit Rules extension, this is now moved to the Atlassian Suite. Here we have better integration and more modern tools than on java.net.
Big thanks to Wilfred
for helping me out with the conversion.
Make sure to save/bookmark the following links:
- Confluence / wiki
The old svn repository on java.net is deleted and you can now use git (more...)
I got a few questions from people why the ADF EMG Audit Rules are not available in JDeveloper 12.1.3. So there has been a new release of the ADF EMG Audit Rules. No new functionality is implemented this time, but the extension is now available for JDeveloper 12.1.3.
If you go to Help -> Check for Updates, tick the Open source and Partner Extensions checkbox and press Next:

I am proud to announce that I will be giving two presentation at Oracle Open World
this year in San Francisco. So some shameless self-plug on my blog to put them both under a little extra attention.
The first one will be on the ODTUG's and ADF EMG ADF Sunday, together with Wilfred
. We will explain and demonstrate our new open source project/product the ADF EMG XML DataControl

Tree bindings can be very handy, for example to combine details in the same row as the master. Let’s assume we have the following starting point based on the HR schema:
We see the department in a form layout with navigation buttons, with a table under the form showing information about the employees. As you can see in the screenshot below in the ApplicationModule, there is also a Jobs detail under the EmployeeView.

In our Enterprise Landscape the SOA Services and our Canonical Data Model (CDM) live on a different WebLogic Server than our ADF application. But often we want to use these services and CDM in our ADF application.
Calling WebServices from an ADF application is not that difficult, however, we often want to manipulate the result that comes from this WebService. In 90 percent of the time, this are little adjustments to the existing CDM (more...)
When working with more complex XSL files, it can sometimes be useful to disable the Auto Map option. This can easily be achieved in the Auto Map Preferences popup you get when drawing lines in the design view of an XSL Map.
However, once disabled, you will not get this popup anymore to re-enable the Auto Map option. You need to do this through the Tools -> Preferences menu in JDeveloper. On the bottom of (more...)
During the ADF community event at AMIS Services last Thursday (22 may 2014), Wilfred
and myself announced a new upcoming open source project, named XML DataControl.
On the AMIS Live blog
there was a good summary about the functionality of the XML DataControl:
“The XML Data Control is an ADF Data Control that is used by developers to create data bindings in ADF Faces pages, just like the ADF BC Data Control and the (more...)
Normally we pack functionality into libraries and use this library to share the functionality. However, during development of several JDeveloper Extensions our goal was to have one shared java source between our JDeveloper 11g and JDeveloper 12c extension.
Off course we wanted the ability to easily develop, test, debug and run the extension, but we also want to share the java code to introduce reusability.
We accomplished this, by creating a separated ‘coresrc’ folder and (more...)
