Oracle JDeveloper & ADF Team have made a great job with the latest release of Oracle ADF including the new out of the box skin and patterns – Alta UI. The concept of having a responsive ADF Application has become something that we can now actually see instead of dream. Whether you agree or not, for some people the look and feel is as important as the functional requirements in a web application. I agree. Continue reading
As you might have seen in different tutorials and posts (including us), before, it was not clear how to avoid displaying a graph (or chart in 12.1.3) where all the bars were colored the same. For example, before 12.1.3 the strategy we used, and many of you as well, was to simply “swap bars with” as we showed in one of our previous posts; Continue reading
Let’s start explaining the use case:
An ADF Application is storing an Object in the application scope and it needs to be always up to date. The object may be updated by externals sources at any time so it needs to be constantly refreshed to avoid stale data. So, how do you keep up to date this object? Continue reading
Although the task seems relatively easy, the information available is too vague and you might find yourself struggling to understand what needs to be done, specially if you are just getting started with BI Publisher. In order to display a BLOB image in the report template RTF (using MS Word BI Publisher Plugin), follow the next steps: Continue reading
This is our first post for BI Publisher 11G that is meant to save others that have little or none experience on the tool but still, need to get the job done.
This post is about a relatively simple task; add a dynamic footer or header to your RTF template in MS Word using BI Publisher plugin, and the footer/header need to reference dynamic data (data model fields). Continue reading
If you are familiar with ADF Contextual Events, then you will know that the events only happen in the Binding Layer, meaning that producers and consumers ought to be registered in some pageDef inside your ADF Application. Right, but what do you do when your consumer method is in your bean? You need to expose the method to your binding layer for it to be able to become a valid candidate to ‘consume’ any of your contextual event. You might be tempted to just create a POJO DC based on this bean just to be able to create a method binding in your pageDef only for this purpose or use a dummy method in your AppModule to do the job.
Few weeks ago someone asked about how to add new rows to a view object using a file. That person thought that ADF provided such component out of the box; a kind of uploadFile which would give that functionality. Unfortunately for him, that component does not exists but it doesn’t mean that one, the developer, could not create one using, for instance, declarative components. Continue reading
Hi again, this is the third post related to OPSS User and Role API which basically will show how to simply create a user in the weblogic server authenticator. If you haven’t seen the previous posts please see here Part 1 and Part 2.
Hemos tomado la iniciativa de crear una nueva comunidad de Oracle JDeveloper y ADF en Espanol. Si estas interesado en formar parte, este es el link.
I’ll try not to be too critical about it but… Most of us felt mesmerized and exited about this new version’s release notes where a bunch of new graphs were introduced which is great and we should, we are thankful to JDeveloper’s team for the effort. However, there are few “steps back” that I would like to mention to see if I get a valid response from someone in Oracle. Specifically about Bars Charts (this may apply for the rest of the other graphs as well). Continue reading
