My OOW 2012 Session Schedule, and 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 Fusion Middleware Live Development session where we as a team show you the steps involved in creating an application using nearly all parts of Fusion Middleware. My role in the team is to explain how we build the UI part of the application and how we used ADF to do that. Also I will show you how you can create an interactive dashboard using DVT components such as graphs and gauges. More info on this session can be found here. Right in the middle of this session I have to leave the room in order to go to my next presentation. This presentation is called "mobile development with Oracle JDeveloper and ADF". In this session I show you some of the options that you have if you want to extend your enterprise application to mobile devices. I cannot go into much detail yet. Having said that, I've probably said enough. More info is available here. After my presentation I head straight to the Oracle Benelux Networking Event which is sponsored by AMIS. The rest of the week is also dedicated ADF and to mobile development. Monday, I'll be attending one of the 8 Hand on Labs where one can develop mobile applications for iOS and Android with ADF mobile. Tuesday is a mashup day containing session about ADF, Forms and SOA. After that, on Wednesday I have several more sessions on mobile development. Data Visualization best practices on mobile devices, spatial mashup on mobile devices, and about next generation infrastructure for HTML5 and mobile apps. And maybe I will meet you at the OOW 2012 Bloggers Meetup. Thursday I call a "whatever comes up day", where I will probably do a lot of handson stuff, and in the evening I have diner with all of the AMIS employees that are also at OOW. Keep an eye on this weblog and read all my Oracle Open World news and experiences. Now if your are trying to find me, this is where I am:
The conference season doesn't end here. After Oracle Open World I will present at one more international conference this year. In december I have two presentations at the UKOUG 2012 conference.I'm proud of having presentations at OBUG Connect 2012, ODTUG KScope12, Oracle Open World 2012 and UKOUG Conference 2012.

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…
