New kid on the block !

It's been a quit month on my blog but I've been very busy "fooling around" lately.

That is what happens to you when you become a father for the first time. Less sleep......but tons of fun ! One thing that my daughter allready made clear to me is is that my time is no longer only available to Jdeveloper and ADF. Every time I find some minutes to do some research at home, she will start telling me that she wants to eat, or play, or that she want's some attention. I made it my personal goal to teach her (she's 8 weeks old now) ADF as soon as possible, so I get to spent more quality time with her ;-)

My daughter wasn't the only newborn. There actually is another one: "Oracle JDeveloper 11g Technical Preview 2 - (Build 4684)". It can be downloaded here.
It is the first preview which has a automated migration process for 10g apps.

Steve Muench announced it on his blog. You can find a link to the migration guide there as well. I'm curious to find out what will happen to the panel page which no longer exists in 11g but was the base of many 10g apps !

If I find the time I'll try to play with 11g preview 2 next couple of weeks.

ADF 12.1.3 : Implementing Default Table Filter Values

In one of my projects I ran into a requirement where the end user needs to be presented with default values in the table filters. This sounds like it is a common requirement, which is easy to implement. However it proved to be not so common, as it is not in the documentation nor are there any Blogpost to be found that talk about this feature. In this blogpost I describe how to implement this.

The Use Case Explained
Users of the application would typically enter today's date in a table filter in order to get all data that is valid for today. They do this each and every time. In order to facilitate them I want to have the table filter pre-filled with today's date (at the moment of writing July 31st 2015).

So whenever the page is displayed, it should display 'today' in the table filter and execute the query accordingly. The problem is to get the value in the filter without the user typing it. Lets first take a look at how the ADF Search and Filters are implemented by the f…

ADF 12.2.x : Conditional Showing Message Instead of List of Values Popup

Today I had to fix an issue in one of our ADF applications. For those of you working with ADF (as I do too occasionally) this might be valuable, so I decided to share this. The application is based on an old Oracle Forms applications and I had to implement the following functionality:

FRM-41830 : List of Values contains no entries.

In other words (more ADF like) : If you are about to render a List of Values and that List of Values contains no rows, just show a message instead of showing the List of Values.

In this post I will describe how I was able to implement this although it turned out to be a challenge.
Below are the steps that I took. Note that the Application can be downloaded from GIT.

1) I use a UI pattern where we use readonly table and do edits in a popup. That means that any List of Values will add an additional popup to the UI.

2) The List of Values that I use in this sample only shows entries where the minimum salary is less then the employees current salary. Not that …

ADF 11g Quicky 3 : Adding Error, Info and Warning messages

How can we add a message programatically ? Last week I got this question for the second time in a months time. I decided to write a short blogpost on how this works.

Adding messages is very easy, you just need to know how it works.
You can add a message to your faces context by creating a new FacesMessage. Set the severity (ERROR, WARNING, INFO or FATAL ), set the message text, and if nessecary a message detail. The fragment below shows the code for an ERROR message.

1: public void setMessagesErr(ActionEvent actionEvent) {
2: String msg = "This is a message";
3: AdfFacesContext adfFacesContext = null;
4: adfFacesContext = AdfFacesContext.getCurrentInstance();
5: FacesContext ctx = FacesContext.getCurrentInstance();
6: FacesMessage fm =
7: new FacesMessage(FacesMessage.SEVERITY_ERROR, msg, "");
8: ctx.addMessage(null, fm);
9: }

I created a simple page with a couple of buttons to show the result of setting the message. When the butto…
