Ideally you would like to have fake REST service to simulate REST calls from JET UI, until real REST back-end is ready. This can be achieved with JSON Server.

Column Sorting in ADF TreeTable by Soham Dasgupta

Sorting of columns are not supported in ADF TreeTable by default. The documentation of 12c says : Unlike the Table, the TreeTable does not support automatic sorting. The underlying TreeModel must support sorting by implementing it's sorting logic in the setSortCriteria(List criteria) method of the TreeModel. But my client wanted sorting on the tree table on few columns. It was a good challenge and this is how I solved it. Steps : 1. The treeModel is based on a managed bean. You...

Oracle JET 3 – How to add third party libraries – For example socket.io by Enno Schulte

One of the biggest advantages of Oracle JET is, that we have a toolkit instead of a framework. This means, we are easily able to add third party libraries into our stack. When you take a look at all those javascript libraries out there, you will realize that the pain is to choose the right library for the right purpose. With version 2.2 you had to rely on bower to add components or libraries. Now in version 3 everything is about NPM. In my opinion it is great that they...

Oracle JET Busy Context API to Control Asynchronous REST Calls by Andrejus Baranovskis

I have received feedback from users working with JET UI - sometimes it is not obvious that action button was pressed, users tend to press same button again very fast, which leads to parallel REST calls executing at the same time. In JET - REST call is executed asynchronously, this makes user to believe action was done instantly when button was pressed. However, REST call still may run in the background - while user will be trying to call same service again. While in most of...

The information about transactions is distributed cluster-wide. If a cluster member fails, another server takes over the tasks of the failed server and executes them. In this way, the applications are kept running without interruption. The AdminServer is a single point of failure: if the server fails, the Domain is no longer...
