Using Oracle ADF EJB PersistObject

While demoing out some ADF faces functionality to the team, I forgot that in order to build a form to save an object to the DB using the persistObject method you should… 1. Build the ADF Parameter Form using the Object’s Constructors from the Data Control. 2. Bind a button to the persistObject data control….. drag the persistObject data control onto the page and select ADF Button. 3. On the Action Binding screen, in the value column provide #{bindings.ObjectIterator.currentRow.dataProvider} as the value for parameter or use the EL builder to find the Iterator used by the form and bind it … Read More

ADF Table Row Selection Event Update Form

One of the UI requirements in a recent ADF project was to use an ADF Read-Only Table and its built-in functionality (row selection, filtering and sorting) to allow a user to find a row, select it, then automatically have a form on the same page be updated with the data from the row selected for updating and saving.

Heidi Buelow, Product Manager at Oracle for BPM Suite posted a note on the Oracle Forums over the weekend asking a member to hold off on using JDeveloper 11g PS3 with BPM. I am generally pleased with the integration, and truly appreciate the vision of using one IDE (JDeveloper) for all things Oracle.
