Glassfish

JDBC Connection Pools in Glassfish

I've been attempting to configure Glassfish 3.1.2.2 for ADF 11g and the need arose to create a jdbc connection pool to my Oracle XE 11g database. While this is really very trivial there were no samples of how to do this and documentation, while good, rarely ever provides concrete examples. After fumbling around for a few minutes searching for an example I gave up and figured it out on my own. Here are the steps for any of you that may be in need. This can be done either via the Glassfish command line tool asadmin or through the admin console. I'm doing this through the admin console. Start Glassfish and connect to the admin console with the credentials you defined at installation: http://localhost:4848 Navigate to Resources | JDBC | JDBC Connection Pools and select New. Be sure to enter Resource Type & Datasource Classname under General Settings tab. You can go with the defaults for Pool Settings etc... View Image Go to the Additional Properties tab and create username, password, and url properties with the respective values. View Image Navigate to Resources | JDBC | JDBC Resources and select New. Be sure to enter the JNDI Name and select the Pool Name for the jdbc connection pool you created previously. View Image Navigate to Configurations | server-config | JVM Settings and select the JVM Options tab. Add the values highlighted: -Doracle.jdbc.J2EE13Compliant=true is used to make sure the driver behaves in a JEE-compliant manner. View Image To integrate the JDBC driver into a GlassFish Server domain, copy the JAR files into the domain-dir/lib directory, then restart the server. The JAR file for the Oracle 11 database driver is ojdbc6dms.jar. Note: You can also use the glassfish provided jdbc driver oracle.jdbc.drivers/ojdbc6.jar. This is sufficient to copy into the lib directory. Last thing, once you've configured your datasource, is to test it out. You can invoke a ping from the JDBC Connection Pool console to validate the db connection setup. This is the datasource you will use for ADF Essentials 11.1.2.3 that just went live today (09/24/2012) so download the new ADF Essentials now! You will have to take a short survey prior to downloading the new ADF Essentials. See Shay's blog on Deploying ADF Essentials Applications to Glassfish.

Better late than never. Sorry for the delay on getting this content up for all of you and thanks again for your attendance. A number of excellent questions came out of the sessions I delivered and herein I'm providing you with the content, in pdf format, for those sessions. I'm also providing pointers to Forms to ADF integration/migration as well as some details around OAF as used in E-Business Suite and ADF. Here's the sessions delivered by location. Click on any of the links to download the session content in pdf format. Montevideo Uruguay: Is Oracle ADF Simpler than Oracle Forms? Understanding the Fusion Development Platform Building Web Data Dashboards Without Coding Buenos Aires, Argentina: Is Oracle ADF Simpler than Oracle Forms? Developing Cross Device Mobile Applications Sao Paulo, Brazil Understanding the Fusion Development Platform Is Oracle ADF Simpler than Oracle Forms? A brief note on Form Integration & Migration: Does your organization have an Oracle Forms application that you'd like to migrate to ADF? Or, perhaps you're anOracle Forms Developer and want to modernize your application development skills? If so, you've come to the right place!This section will strive to answer common questions that arise as you move from Forms to ADF. Our Oracle FormsStatement of Direction points out that Oracle is committed to the long-term support of Oracle Forms and Reports. However, many customers feelthey are outgrowing their Forms applications. Users are demanding more sophisticated and interactive users interfaces. Executivesare requiring SOA-enabled applications that integrate with peripheral services. Development leads are encouraging a moremodern approach to application development, including adherence to design patterns like MVC. So even as Oracle still supportsForms, the list of reasons to move off of it is becoming more compelling and is only gaining further momentum by the fact thatOracle's own Fusion Applications are using ADF. Developers and organizations looking to align with both the technology stack andlook-and-feel of Fusion Applications are choosing ADF, and thus reaping the benefits of years of best practices in enterpriseapplication development that are baked into the ADF framework. So, if you decide to migrate off of Forms for any of these reasons,ADF is the way to go. Grant Ronald has published a video of our position on the subject, along with an ODTUG article explainingour direction. These materials explain that there are other migration tools/frameworks/paths, but the best choice is usually tofollow Gartner's recommendation that if you are going to migrate off of Oracle Forms, ADF is the least risky and least costlymigration path. Please visit the Oracle Forms page here. For details around OAF as used in E-Business Suite (EBS) and when to use ADF with EBS you can review the following blogs from Shay Shmeltzer.

JDeveloper

Oracle JDeveloper/ADF 11g (11.1.2.0.0 Build 6017) is here!

JDeveloper 11g (11.1.2.0.0 Build 6017) Released! Oracle JDeveloper/ADF 11.1.2.0.0 (Build 6017) is here and loaded with many new and exciting features including JSF2.0/Facelets support, the new skin editor, as well as Hudson and Maven integration just to name a few. Here are some quotes from our customers: Customer Quotes "We are early adopters of JDeveloper and ADF, working from first JDeveloper 10g versions. Amazing work has been accomplished by Oracle during recent years with JDeveloper and ADF technology becoming industry standard when implementing enterprise systems. That being said, we are thrilled with what Oracle will offer us with new JDeveloper 11g R2 (11.1.2) release. Even more industry standards will be supported, among them an important one is JSF 2.0. However, JDeveloper 11g R2 (11.1.2) is not only about new standards, it will deliver next level of product runtime performance. We expect JDeveloper 11g R2 (11.1.2) IDE to be even faster and more reliable. Solid support will be offered for such important areas as Web Services which is especially good news for SOA projects. Red Samurai looks forward to get this new really great tool, JDeveloper 11g R2 (11.1.2), and offer our customers top level quality services." Andrejus Baranovskis, Oracle ACE Director and CEO - Red Samurai Consulting. "At Axi, we're very happy that we will have Maven support in thenext JDeveloper edition,  it brings more freedom of choice, makingit easier to import community driven projects based on maven, and -if necessary-gives us the possibility to use all the maven plugins.  In line withthis, we’ll have Hudson integration in JDeveloper, so Maven will not onlymake it a lot easier to enable our projects for Hudson,  it seems thatwe’ll get a nice continuous integration environment as well!" Gert Leenders, Product Manager at Axi and Member of the Devoxx Steeringcommittee. "I am looking forward to the release of JDeveloper/ADF 11.1.2.0.0 for several reasons - the most important one is probably JSF 2.0 (and Facelets) support. With JSF 2.0 and Facelets, we can get rid of the JSP view engine (with all of its issues) and take advantage of other JSF 2.0 improvements such as HTTP GET support and use of annotations to simplify the configuration of managed beans. I am also looking forward to the next generation of true enterprise development capabilities in the form of integration with build tools such as Maven and Hudson; out-of-the-box support for Maven builds (and automated builds via Hudson) will bring "continuous build" capabilities to everyone, not just to large teams with the experience and wherewithal to develop this capability on their own. This should assist in bridging the gap between the two "camps" who can benefit from Oracle ADF's productivity; namely Oracle Forms developers and Java developers." John Stegeman - Oracle ACE Director. Maven Integration with JDeveloper 11g (11.1.2.0.0) The next part of entry is going to cover the new Maven integration both through a How-To that I've created and live on Oracle's Technology Network (OTN) and through a viewlet that I've created to illustrate how easy it is to leverage Oracle's JDeveloper Maven integration. Apache Maven is a software project management and comprehension tool. Based on the concept of a project object model (POM), Maven can manage a project's build, reporting and documentation from a central piece of information. Maven provides a way to help with managing: Builds Documentation Reporting Dependencies Software Configuration Management (SCM) Releases Distribution To see the out-of-the-box integration with Maven provided by Oracle JDeveloper please read my How-To available on OTN here. I've also created a simple viewlet that illustrates creating a Maven Project in Oracle JDeveloper as well as importing a Maven Project into Oracle JDeveloper which is available here. Development Lifecycle with Oracle JDeveloper 11g The last thing that I want to cover in this entry related to Oracle JDeveloper 11.1.2.0.0 is that of the Full Development Lifecycle supported by the new release. I've created a viewlet available on OTN that provides the following details: Design Coding Debugging Testing Tuning Building ANT Maven Deploying Team Productivity Center (TPC) To learn more about the Full Development Lifecycle supported by Oracle JDeveloper please review the viewlet available here.

ADF Deployment Guide: How to Install & Configure WebLogic Server to Run ADF 11g Applications in Production

There have been a number of blogs over the last few months, years, that have demonstrated configuring a Manged Server to run ADF Applications. Some of these have gone a little further and illustrated how to configure the Web Tier Utilities and set various parameters within WebCache to further tune the performance of your ADF Applications. This blog entry, directing you to this new How-To, serves as an amalgam of the following contributors blogs on this subject plus some of my own: Duncan Mills, Lynn Munsinger, Shay Shmeltzer, Andrejus Baranovskis, Chris Muir.To summarize this How-To available on Oracle's Technology Network here: This How-To Document details a step-by-step process for creating a deployment environment for Application Development Framework (ADF) applications. Included are steps to follow in creating a managed server, applying the Java Runtime Files (JRF) for the ADF, creation of the Web Tier (HTTP Server and WebCache) and then tuning elements for your ADF application that will provide for better performance. Note that this How-To assumes a Windows Server so unless otherwise stated, starting and stopping of WebLogic takes place from the Windows Start Menu although this can also occur from the command prompt by invoking the startWebLogic.cmd. The details here can also be used on a Linux Server with some minor variations.Please note that there are alternatives to this How-To and this serves as one method.

OTN Developer Days (Review) - San Juan, PR - April 29, 2010

A quick update on the San Juan, PR event. First off it was a great success with the Keynote audience of 200+. Mickey Ralat, Managing Director Oracle Caribbean, kicked off the event with a quick introduction followed by me delivering the Keynote Message - The Fusion Development Platform which is the first session in the regular OTN DD events that we run in North America. Following this session was a partner, SDT, basically marketing their services which covers the Oracle stack and then following was a very brief presentation on APEX. After this we broke out into the various tracks of Java, (APEX) DB SQL Developer, .NET on Oracle. After the breakout we ran the following sessions in the Java track: Developing with JDBC, UCP, and Java in Database, Rich Internet Applications in Web 2.0, Development Made Simple Without Coding: Developing Reusable Business Components. As expected with the various tracks, we ended up with 50 - 70 in the various sessions within the JAVA track and the audience was very impressed with the power of JDeveloper/ADF 11g and we got a number of questions from licensing cost to upgrading / integrating from Forms. As for the Forms questions, I fielded a number of them and for those I couldn't, I pointed them towards Grants resources which seemed to suffice. They were all, for the most part, unaware of the recent 11.1.1.3 release which occurred only a couple of days prior to the event. The indication was that they were going to download it and use it for the lab that was included on the DVD which we did not have the time for them to even start on. For those of you that attended the event, you can download the updated presentations as follows:Keynote - The Fusion Development PlatformRich Internet Applications in Web 2.0Development Made Simple Without Coding - Developing Reusable Business Components

EJB 3.0

NetBeans to JDeveloper Part 1: A SessionEJB Maven Application

This entry demonstrates taking a NetBeans 6.8 SessionEJB application that uses Maven 2.2.1 and creating a JDeveloper 11.1.1.2.0 project based on the POM.Requirements:JDeveloper 11.1.1.2.0NetBeans 6.8Maven 2.2.1Installing IDEs and MavenSimply follow the wizards for each IDE and go with the defaults. You may want to change installation home directories.For maven, unzip the archive to the directory of your choice. This entry assumes the following location: C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\apache-maven-2.2.1Additional configuration is required for Maven as outlined here.The Maven extensions will need to be downloaded and installed in JDeveloper. There are two extensions and within JDeveloper simply select Help | Check for Updates. Select the two extensions named maven_bundle.zip & maven-j2ee_bundle.zip. JDeveloper will restart to complete the installation.Create an Enterprise Application Using Maven in NetBeans 6.8After launching NetBeans some minor configuration is required to use Maven as follows:Select Tools | Options | Miscellaneous | MavenFor "External Maven Home", browse to the Maven home for your installation. This entry assumes "C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\apache-maven-2.2.1".For "Local Repository", browse to the Maven repository for your installation. This entry assumes "C:\Documents and Settings\{user}\.m2"Now you can proceed with the creation of the Application. Here are the steps.Select File | New Project | Maven | Maven EJB ModuleFor "Project Name" enter mavenproject1 or whatever you prefer.For "Java EE Version" select Java EE 5 For "Package" enter acme.ejb.session or whatever you prefer and select "Finish".Right select the project mavenproject1 and Select New from context followed by Other | Java EE | Session Bean. Select Next.Name the EJB HelloWorldSessionBean.Select the package that you used when you created the project (acme.ejb.session).Set "Session Type" to Stateful and "Create Interface" to Remote. Select "Finish" Notice that you have created to java objects. One is the Session Bean itself and the other is the remote interface.In the session bean add the following method.public String sayHello (String name) {return "Hello " + name + ":)";}In the remote interface add the following reference.String sayHello (String name);Save the application. Once done, you can quit NetBeans and start JDeveloper if you haven't already done so.The sample NetBeans application can be downloaded from here.Create an Application Workspace in JDeveloper followed by a Maven Project from a POMHere are the steps:Select "New Application" and enter SessionEJB for the name. For the "Application Template" select Generic Application. Select Finish. This creates an application workspace and an empty project that won't be used in this instance.Right select the SessionEJB workspace and select General | Maven | JDeveloper project from a POM.Browse to the "Maven POM file" within the NetBeans project that was created earlier and select it. The location will be something like this: C:\NetBeansProjects\mavenproject1\pom.xmlEnsure your "Local Repository" is set correctly as follows: C:\Documents and Settings\{user}\.m2\repositorySelect the "Settings File" for the version of Maven that you're using. In this case it is Maven version 2.2.1 and not 2.1.0 that comes with JDeveloper and should be something like the following: C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\apache-maven-2.2.1\conf\settings.xml. Select OK.The Application Navigator should appear as follows:Right select mavenproject1 and select "Project Properties" from context.Select "Libraries and Classpath" and add the following libraries: EJB 3.0 & WebLogic 10.3 Remote-Client.Select "EJB Module" and select 3.0 for "EJB Version". Notice that your session bean will be added to the "Annotated EJB 3.0 Bean Classes" section.Open your session bean for editing and add the following mapping at the end of the @Stateless annotation: (name = "HelloWorldSession", mappedName = "SessionEJB-mavenproject1-HelloWorldSession") Following the @ Stateless annotation add the @Remote annotation.Right select HelloWorldSessionBean and select "New Sample Java Client" from context.Set the "Client Class Name" as follows: acme.client.HelloWorldSessionBeanRemoteClient. Select OK.Add the following line to your test client Right after HelloWorldSessionBeanRemote helloWorldSessionBeanRemote.......System.out.println(helloWorldSessionBeanRemote.sayHello("World"));Save your application and right select on the HelloWorldSessionBean and select run from context.Once this has successfully compiled and deployed to the integrated WebLogic server, right select on the test client and select run from context. The indication that the integrated server is running is as follows: "[Server Instance IntegratedWebLogicServer has been started]".Results of running the test client.This entry has demonstrated creating a simple HelloWorld Session EJB using Maven with the NetBeans IDE.

Reusable Components

Reusable ADF Library (RSSFeedReader): Updated to use the iterator component as opposed to the forEach.

In this blog entry I'll demonstrate the creation of a reusable component using JDeveloper/ADF 11g, Rome 1.0 RSS and Atom Utilities, and JDOM 1.0. First I'll provide the links to the required software. Required Downloads: JDeveloper 11g Rome 1.0 JDom 1.1.2 FeedReader Application Workspace Description of the FeedReader Application:The simple description of the FeedReader Reusable Component is to create a Fusion Web Application (ADF) which creates both a Model and ViewController project for you. In the model project you want to add the rome.jar and jdom.jar files to your project libraries and classpath. The following steps outline the basic objects I've created for my application. Feed.java is a simple object with setters and getters that describe the items to be displayed for a particular RSS Feed. The following image is a partial glimpse of the object. FeedReader.java is an object with two methods processFeed which takes a url and creates a syndication entry that it then passes to the addEntry method which processes each entry 1 by 1 adding them to an ArrayList of Feed objects. Also worth noting are a couple of test clients in the Model project, TestFR.java and FRTestClient.java, that you can take a look at. They were used to validate the data prior to creating the Data Control. As for creating a Data Control I simply right clicked on the FeedReader.java object and selected create Data Control. The Data Control is needed to expose the attributes and methods to the ViewController. Worth pointing out here is another aspect of the Feed.java object. This object as used in FeedReader.java exposes it's attributes through the Data Control. So now I'll move on to the RSSViewController project. The first thing to do is to create a ADF Bounded Task Flow and to drop a view component on it. The name of the bounded task flow is rsstask-flow-definition and the view is named rssFeedReader.jsff. After creating the bounded task flow I've added a parameter to it for the RSS Feed URL that I'll pass into it as you can see from the following image. The parameter name is RSSURL, it's a string and it is a required input. The next step is to set the NDValue for the argument being passed into the processFeed method to the same as that for the Value in the bounded task flow. But first, I must create the rssfeedReader.jsff jsf fragment. I do this by double clicking on the view in the bounded task flow and go with the defaults. I can now design the layout of the jsf fragment. Without going into all the details, I've basically created two outputText components for the titleHead and titleDesc by dragging those attributes from the FeedReader data control onto the jsf fragment. I've then used a For Each operation to iterate through the items of the supplied RSS Feed. Now that this is done, I can select the Bindings tab of the jsf fragment and select the rssFeedReaderPageDef | bindings | processFeed | arg within the Structure Pane and then in the Property Inspector, I set the NDValue to #{pageFlowScope.RSSURL}. I'm almost done. Now to create a deployment profile for the RSSViewController Project. This is done by double clicking on the RSSViewController project, selecting Deployment, selecting New, selecting ADF Library Jar File for the Archive Type, and give it an appropriate name. You should be able to go with the defaults from here but ensure that the Library Dependencies of the Model Project are selected. Also in the RSSViewController Project is a untitled1.jsp jsf page to test out the new reusable ADF Library but I'll explain how to do this in a new workspace to simulate sharing this library with another developer perhaps. The following image shows what the completed Application Workspace looks like. Sharing the Reusable ADF Library:The first thing to do is to create a new Fusion Web Application Workspace as before. Ensure you've added the rome.jar and jdom.jar files to your project libraries and classpath as before. Then create a new File System Connection to the directory that you've copied the Reusable ADF Library to. After that, in your File System Connections under the Resource Palette, I simply right select the shared library and added it to my project. At this point, I can create a new jsf page and simply drag and drop the bounded task flow from the Component Palette onto my jsf page and supply a RSS Feed URL. Once I'm done with this I can run the page to test it out. Note: the jsf fragment is using the iterator component to iterator through the feed. Feedback is appreciated.

In this blog entry I'll demonstrate the creation of a reusable component using JDeveloper/ADF 11g, Rome 1.0 RSS and Atom Utilities, and JDOM 1.0. First I'll provide the links to the required software. R...

ADF 11g & Tomcat

How to deploy a 11g ADF application on Tomcat 6.x

The process of successfully deploying a 11g ADF BC application to Tomcat 6.x has created a buzz in the JDeveloper forums and there appears to be some confusion as to the best approach. This blog entry documents one approach and includes the basic steps required to deploy and run a simple application that uses ADF BC/ADF Faces and ADF binding on Tomcat 6.x.Note that this is not the official documentation but simply an approach I took to successfully complete the task at hand.Required Downloads:Download Tomcat 6.x.Download JDeveloper 11g.Download Oracle XE or some other database.Download Application Workspace TomcatADFApp.zip.Download database schema soademo.dmp.High level steps for your Fusion Web Application:1. Create a Fusion Web Application.2. Create Business Components from tables. Ensure you create the application module.3. Edit the default deployment profile.4. In the WEB-INF/lib Filters of the deployment profile, deselect all libraries.5. For the Platform in the deployment profile, select Tomcat 6.x as the Default Platform.6. Ensure that your Application Module uses a Datasource Connection. Not a url connection string.7. You will need to add a context.xml with your datasource connection details.8. JPSFilter detail in your web.xml will need to be commented out.9. Security detail in your adf-config.xml will need to be commented out.10. Right click on your Viewcontroller and select deploy from context. Deploy to war.Please
