Implement Tree/Details With Taskflow Regions Using EJB

Guest Author

This article describes on Display Tree/Details using taskflow regions.

Use Case Description

Let
us take scenario where we need to display Tree/Details, left region
contains category hierarchy with items listed in a tree structure (ex:-
Region-Countries-Locations-Departments in tree format) and right region
contains the Employees list.

In detail, Here User may drills down
through categories using a tree until Employees are listed. Clicking
the tree node name displays Employee list in the adjacent pane related
to particular tree node.

Implementation Steps

The script for creating the tables and inserting the data required for this application

CreateSchema.sql


Lets
create a Java EE Web Application with Entities based on Regions,
Countries, Locations, Departments and Employees table. Create a
Stateless Session Bean and data control for the Stateless Session Bean.
Add the below code to the session bean and expose the method in
local/remote interface and generate a data control for that.

Note:- Here in the below code "em" is a EntityManager.

public List<Employees> empFilteredByTreeNode(String treeNodeType, String paramValue) {
String queryString = null;
try {
if (treeNodeType == "null") {
queryString = "select * from Employees emp ORDER BY emp.employee_id ASC";
} else if (Pattern.matches("[a-zA-Z]+[_]+[a-zA-Z]+[_]+[[0-9]+]+", treeNodeType)) {
queryString = "select * from employees emp INNER JOIN departments dept\n" +
"ON emp.department_id = dept.department_id JOIN locations loc\n" +
"ON dept.location_id = loc.location_id JOIN countries cont\n" +
"ON loc.country_id = cont.country_id JOIN regions reg\n" +
"ON cont.region_id = reg.region_id and reg.region_name = '" + paramValue +
"' ORDER BY emp.employee_id ASC";
} else if (treeNodeType.contains("regionsFindAll_bc_countriesList_1")) {
queryString = "select * from employees emp INNER JOIN departments dept \n" +
"ON emp.department_id = dept.department_id JOIN locations loc \n" +
"ON dept.location_id = loc.location_id JOIN countries cont \n" +
"ON loc.country_id = cont.country_id and cont.country_name = '" + paramValue +
"' ORDER BY emp.employee_id ASC";
} else if (treeNodeType.contains("regionsFindAll_bc_locationsList_1")) {
queryString =
"select * from employees emp INNER JOIN departments dept ON emp.department_id = dept.department_id JOIN locations loc ON dept.location_id = loc.location_id and loc.city = '" +
paramValue + "' ORDER BY emp.employee_id ASC";
} else if (treeNodeType.trim().contains("regionsFindAll_bc_departmentsList_1")) {
queryString =
"select * from Employees emp INNER JOIN Departments dept ON emp.DEPARTMENT_ID = dept.DEPARTMENT_ID and dept.DEPARTMENT_NAME = '" +
paramValue + "'";
}
} catch (NullPointerException e) {
System.out.println(e.getMessage());
}
return em.createNativeQuery(queryString, Employees.class).getResultList();
}

In the ViewController project, create two ADF taskflow
with page Fragments and name them as FirstTaskflow and SecondTaskflow
respectively. Open FirstTaskflow,from component palette drop view(Page
Fragment) name it as TreeList.jsff. Open SeconfTaskflow, from component
palette drop view(Page Fragment) name it as EmpList.jsff and create two
paramters in its overview parameters tab as shown in below image.

Open TreeList.jsff , from data control palette drop regionsFindAll->Tree as ADF Tree. In Edit Tree Binding dialog, for Tree Level Rules select the display attributes as follows:-
model.Regions - regionName
model.Countries - countryName
model.Locations - city
model.Departments - departmentName

In
structure panel, click on af:Tree - t1 and select selectionListener
with edit property. Create a "TreeBean" managed bean with scope as
"session" as shown in below Image.

Create new method as getTreeNodeSelectedValue and click ok.

Open TreeBean managed bean and add the below code:

private String treeNodeType;
private String paramValue;
public void getTreeNodeSelectedValue(SelectionEvent selectionEvent) {
RichTree tree = (RichTree)selectionEvent.getSource();
RowKeySet addedSet = selectionEvent.getAddedSet();
Iterator i = addedSet.iterator();
TreeModel model = (TreeModel)tree.getValue();
model.setRowKey(i.next());
JUCtrlHierNodeBinding node = (JUCtrlHierNodeBinding)tree.getRowData();
//oracle.jbo.Row
Row rw = node.getRow();
Object selectedTreeNode = node.getAttribute(0);
Object treeListType = node.getBindings();
String treeNodeType = treeListType.toString();
this.setParamValue(selectedTreeNode.toString());
this.setTreeNodeType(treeNodeType);
}
public void setTreeNodeType(String treeNodeType) {
this.treeNodeType = treeNodeType;
}
public String getTreeNodeType() {
return treeNodeType;
}
public void setParamValue(String paramValue) {
this.paramValue = paramValue;
}
public String getParamValue() {
return paramValue;
}<br />

Open EmpList.jsff , from data control palette drop empFilteredByTreeNode->Employees->Table as ADF
Read-only Table. After selecting the  Employees result set, in Edit
Action Binding dialog window pass the pageFlowScope parameters as shown
in below Image.

In
empList.jsff page, click Binding tab and click on Create Executable
binding and select Invoke action and follow as shown in below image.

Edit
executeEmpFiltered invoke action properties and set the Refresh to
ifNeeded, So when ever the page needs the method will be executed.

Create
Main.jspx page with page template as Oracle Three Column Layout. Drop
FirstTaskflow as Region in start facet and drop SecondTaskflow as Region
in center facet, Edit task Flow Binding dialog window pass the Input
Paramters as shown in below Image.

Run
the Main.jspx, tree will be displayed in left region and emp details
will displyaed on the right region. Click on the Americas in tree node,
all emp related to the Americas related will be displayed.

Click on Americas->United States of America->South San Francisco->Accounting, only employee belongs to the Accounting department will be displayed.
