BPM & SOA Application missing in JDeveloper 12c gallery by Martien van den Akker

clip_image001

A few weeks ago I did a BPM12c Quickstart Installation under Oracle Linux 6. Everything went smoothly, as described in the install guide as well as on many blogs already.
But I found that most of those blogs did an installation under Windows, where I did it under Oracle Linux in Virtualbox.
You would think (as I did) that it shouldn't matter. However, it turns out that in JDeveloper I was missing the 'BPM Application' (more...)

Changes in JDeveloper 12c BPM simulations

While creating a BPM project simulation in the JDeveloper 12c IDE, I noticed some differences in behavior as opposed to 11g. Although the functionality is mostly unchanged, the UI is different. Most of them are more intuitive, but you might want to check them out and save some time.

  1. Simulations are not always listed by default in the BPM project navigator. You can add them by right-clicking on the project, select New … | From (more...)

Using Code Snippets in JDeveloper

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...)

JDeveloper 12c: Resolving ‘MDS-01368: Variable "oracle.home" used in configuration document is not defined’ error

 When I started up my Integrated Domain I encountered loads of errors in the log regarding the starting of my ADF application:

...
Caused By: oracle.mds.config.MDSConfigurationException: MDS-01330: Kan MDS-configuratiedocument niet laden.    
MDS-01329: Kan element "persistence-config" niet laden.
MDS-01370: Configuratie van MetadataStore voor metadata-store-usage "mstore-usage_1" is ongeldig.   
MDS-01368: Variabele "oracle.home" in het configuratiedocument is niet gedefinieerd als systeemeigenschap of omgevingsvariabele.

I found several questions on the oracle community about this, but (more...)

Build failed: where’s my bc4j.xcfg?


Yesterday and this morning I lost a lot of time with building failures, trying to build our ADF HumanTask forms. We used a adf-lib for amongst others XML DataControls, and reusable page-comoponents.

Trying to build the ear file, and actually that adf-lib, I got an error stating 'Unable to copy to output directory ... <default-package>/common/bc4j.xcfg not found'. Indeed in that default ADFBc folder the bc4j.xcfg is not available, nor anywhere in our whole project (more...)

Change Subversion password in Jdeveloper

On most projects I used TortoiseSVN voor versioning with Subversion. It gives me a feeling of being more in control of my working copy. In the past I used JDevelopers built in versioning tool on a project, due to lack of administrator rights for installing Tortoise. And although you need to give it some time to get used to it, the versioning is pretty good actually.

On my current project I gave it a go (more...)

JDeveloper Debugging Tips (Watchpoints & Beep)

In a previous blog post 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:

ADF EMG Audit Rules available on JDeveloper 12.1.3

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:

Development Platform Disconnect

Each year at the annual Oracle ACE Director briefing, I look around at the laptops my fellow ACE Directors are carrying. More and more of them are MacBooks – I think we were up to around 50% last year.

That makes it all the more puzzling that the installation guide for the latest version of Oracle JDeveloper (12.1.3) does not mention OS X installs at all. The 12.1.2 version had sections (more...)

Find problems when you develop: using XRebel with Oracle ADF

Some days before ZeroTurnaround has released XRebel , a new tool to recognized problems in your web applications, when you make your developer test.

This was promising, so I give it a short try for Oracle ADF applications. For this blog I use the Summit ADF application, delivered by Oracle, but I have tried with our own application too. Test is done in JDeveloper 12.1.2.

After the download there are some easy steps (more...)

Disabling and Enabling the Auto Map for XSL

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...)

Quality Assurance for ADF projects

If you speak german and you are interested in quality assurance for your ADF projects you should come and attend my presentation at DOAG Development on 06/04/2014 in Dusseldorf.

I will show you, how you can implement in the JDeveloper IDE and in Continous Integration server Jenkins:

  • Task’s
  • Commit tests with JUnit, Mockito and Powermock for Mockito
  • Code coverage for commit tests with JaCoCo
  • Acceptance tests with JUnit (more...)

Share your source between projects

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...)

New release of the ADF EMG Audit Rules

There is a new release of the ADF EMG Audit Rules extension. With this release there is now support for both JDeveloper11R1 and JDeveloper12c. However, remember that JDeverlop11g does not support the suppression of violations, so this may lead to a lot of violation on existing projects.
Remember that you can define a custom profile in the Audit tab under preferences to unselect certain rules, but off course it is better to look at the (more...)
