How to call a method defined in AppmoduleImpl using groovy expression?

Usecase Description:

Suppose we have a Transient attribute that stores the value returned by an Appmodule method,then the easy way to call this method in transient attribute would be using Groovy expression.

Consider a simple method in AppmoduleImpl java class that returns the Department name of the selected row of Emp table:

 public String getDeptName(Number dno)

        if (dno == null)
            return null;
        else {
            ViewObject vo = findViewObject("DeptView1");

            try {
                Row row =
                    vo.findByKey(new Key(new Object[] { new oracle.jbo.domain.Number(dno) }),

                if (row != null) {
                    Object name = row.getAttribute("Dname");
                    if (name != null)
                        return name.toString();
                        return null;
                } else
                    return "Specified dept does not exists";
            } catch (Exception e) {
                return null;

Create an Updatable Transient attribute in EmpView Object.Edit its value & provide a groovy expression "adf.object.applicationModule.getDeptName(Deptno)" to call the above method

Run the AppModule & note that the transient attribute returns the Department name corresponding to the selected row of Emp table.

    The method name in AM is getDeptName but in your expression its getName. Is this a typo?
