Put Component References in the correct memory scope

Uncategorized
| Jan 24, 2017
Memory scopes itself can be confusing enough, therefor I always advise my fellow developers to use the ADF scopes as much as possible and avoid the JSF scopes if they can.

When writing Java code, it is a good practice to reformat your code before committing it to a source control system. In JDeveloper, you can put this in your save actions, however, JDeveloper will then also reformat all your XML code, this is not always what you want, plus it is a lot slower than reformatting only the Java code.
