Here one day before deadline, I have entered almost my entire current catalog of presentations for consideration in the Oracle OpenWorld 2013 agenda. One new for this year: “Worst Oracle ADF Project Ever”
If you would like me to speak at one of your events, the following are the presentations (more...)
In one of our portals the user can use inputsliders to select different values. We made a fancy inputslider that shows not only a label, but also the minimum value and the maximum value allowed.
Next to the slider we have an inputText where the user can decide to type (more...)
I recently had to upgrade a WebLogic Server with ADF for a customer. It was WebLogic 10.3.4 to 10.3.6 and ADF 184.108.40.206 to 220.127.116.11. They also used Enterprise Manager.
Everything went fine except for the Enterprise Manager which ended up (more...)
With the IdentityStore framework of Fusion Middleware you can change or create any user or role in almost every LDAP server. With this framework the authenticated user change their own password from ADF or in your own ADF Admin page you can create an user with its roles without knowing (more...)
If you create for an example a big adf application you may want to add all of your entities to one base application for reuse labels, validation and and so on. If you have a big database schema than in short time you have a problem to find your entity.
In JDeveloper there is a neat feature to overcome this problem: working sets! With this you can easily group your entities or other artefacts in logical working set, eg. for a sub application. Unfortunatly working sets are saved per user. There are several description how to share this between your (more...)
In the current version of ADF Mobile the ADF DataControls ( URL and WS ) only supports SOAP and JSON-XML. But this does not mean we cannot use JSON. To handle JSON we can use the RestServiceAdapter
classes. The RestServiceAdapter will handle the Rest Service and JSONBeanSerializationHelper helps (more...)
This years visit to Oracle Open World is for me the best of both worlds. First of all I get to attend one of the biggest, if not the biggest, IT conferences in the world. Second, I have two presentations. Both are on Sunday afternoon. The first one is a (more...)
This blog post is a follow up to the previous one about modularity in Oracle ADF.
Sample applications provided in a blog posts are simplified focusing on one or few aspects described.
Real world ADF applications and task flows can be more sophisticated:
It is a diagram (some-task-flow-defintion.xml (more...)
You might already asked yourself a question like this: How to design an application in a modular way? The principle of "Divide and conquer" helps us to get a complexity under control by breaking possibly complex system into a smaller manageable pieces a.k.a. modules.
This blog post shows how the (more...)
Data push with Active Data Services (ADS) in Oracle ADF has been available for some years.
AJAX functionality has got attention in JSF2 specification. JSF2 made its way into ADF with JDeveloper Release2.
This blog post provides a simple ADF active Chat application, built by using active data service functionality (more...)
This blog post addresses one particular issue related to ADF Bean Data Control: how to refresh. The readers which are not yet familiar with Bean DC might refer for example to the tutorial Using Bean Data Control or this video Working with the ADF Java Bean Data Control by Shay Shmeltzer to get (more...)
Readers of this blog might already took a notice about one link on a right side, pointing to experimental page with live ADF sample application embedded on it. It looks like I'm not alone to have the idea of live ADF samples in my head. Zeeshan Baig, featured in recent (more...)
Bounded task flows are natural building blocks of modular Oracle ADF applications. A bounded task flow facilitates the isolation of specific implementation details in its own memory scope - a page flow scope. For example, a managed bean in pageFlow scope has a lifespan of its bounded flow.
The other commonly used (more...)

We know. It’s been a looooooong time again. But once you read this post, we are quite sure you’ll be happy we took the time to write it. And it’s also...
This is a summary only. Please, visit the blog for full content (more...)
One of the advantages to using commercial, fully supported framework like Oracle Application Development Framework (ADF) is that the vendor supplies a list of supported browsers. If something doesn’t work or doesn’t look right, it’s the vendor’s problem.
When we started a recent project, we initially made sure that our (more...)
Developers using Oracle ADF to build applications most likely get in touch with ADF Business Components (exposed as Data Controls) first. The framework provides few other types of Data Controls out of the box , like URL Data Control, to facilitate an access to various data sources and services. There (more...)
