IFrame in ADF Application – Menu and Show Page in IFrame by Rohan Walia

clip_image002

ADF Applications uses power of reusable task flows to be embed as regions in the page, which can be refreshed based on the use cases.
But there are some requirements by the clients which still emphasize on using Iframe to display different applications inside one application.
Suppose there is a requirement where there are 3 applications A,B and Consuming Application. All three applications A,B and Consuming needs to be deployed as separate EAR(Applications) and Consuming App needs to display the A and B Applications pages inside its main page.
Portal architecture can also fit for this requirement but if there is only ADF you need to implement this, the only choice to do is using Iframe.
In this post I will explain you how we can create a menu and show another application in IFrame in ADF Application.
We will use af:inlineFrame component to achieve this. Below is the use case.

The above diagram is for consuming application and Links in the menu (TestPage1 and TestPage2) refers to another application and the pages on click will open in right hand side inside Iframe.
Lets get started.
Created an ADF Application which has two pages. This will be deployed before the Iframe Application. Read the complete article here.

Working with af:iterator and af:forEach programmatically (Populate values using POJO from Managed Bean) by Ashish Awasthi

clip_image001This is another post about Working programmatically with ADF (populating af:iterator and af:forEach programmatically )
previously i have posted about populating af:iterator and af:forEach using ADF BC and binding layer to show master-detail relation
Implementing master/detail tree relation using af:Iterator and af:forEach for better UI designs - Oracle ADF
For this post i am populating employee name and it's department name using List datastructure ,to get and set value of attributes , created a java bean class , it has 2 variable for both attributes
Next step is to create a managed bean to populate data in af:iterator and af:forEach , this managed bean makes use of

EmployeeDet

java bean class to add data in same format for all items of iterator and forEach. A List data structure is used to pass all values to iterator. See code of managed bean  Read the complete article here.

Dynamic Taskflow with conditional activation by Vinay

clip_image001Use Case – How dynamic task flow activated conditionally.

Implementation - We have two ADF application .One is consumer application which have two task flow

Now we have consumer application which show no task flow on load.Task flow will be shown on click of button .If you click task flow 1 then tf1 will be called and vice versa.Till the button is clicked neither tf1, nor tf2 wud be executed.

Create Producer application-

Create an new ADF application. Create two new task flow as Sample1TF and Sample2TF as below -

Now in each task flow drag drop and view activity and Sample1PF in above screenshot.Same steps need to be done for Sample2TF. Drag drop again an view activity as Sample2PF.jsff

ADF Faces 12c Components Demo and Test Automation by Wilfred van der Deijl

clip_image002You might have noticed that I am working on a series of blog articles on using Selenium to automate testing of Oracle ADF applications. This includes work on a little framework to make this easier and a set of sample JUnit tests against the public Oracle ADF Faces 12c Components Demo.
Getting the Faces 12c Component Demo running with test automation had some challenges. I wanted to write them down here in case somebody wants to try the same. It starts by downloading the Oracle ADF Faces Components Demo from OTN. This also includes instructions on how to run this application in your integrated weblogic server, but those instructions have some caveats and are for JDeveloper 11g, not version 12c. Please follow the instructions below as an alternative (I've marked the differences with the normal Oracle instructions and included screenshots at the end).
In the end this needed more work than I expected, so I offer the fixed version for download. If anyone from Oracle feels that this is a problem please contact me and I'll remove the download and you can follow the instructions below to create your own fixed version.

Download the ADF Faces 12c Components Demo WAR file, but don't unpack it.

Start JDeveloper 12.1.3

Instructions updated from 11g: Choose File > From Gallery from the menu to create a new application. Select General > Applications in the tree and select Custom Application as application type and press Ok.

In the Create Application dialog type adffacesdemo as the application name, select a directory, leave the rest of the options alone and press Finish. This creates new application workspace and project.

Instructions updated from 11g: The default created project is not needed and you may delete the project. Right click it and select Delete Project. In the subsequent dialog choose to not only delete the project form the application but also delete it from disk.

Instructions updated from 11g: In the now empty workspace choose File > From Gallery from the JDeveloper menu. In the list of items select Projects and on the right hand side Project from WAR and press Ok. In the next dialog provide a name for the project, e.g. adffacesdemo, and keep the directory information. On the second panel, use the file browser to select the downloaded ADF Faces demo WAR file and finish the wizard.

Double click onto the project node to open the project properties and select the Run > Debug > Profile option. Press the Edit button and select the Tool Settings. In the Before Running section, uncheck the Make Project and Dependencies option and close the dialog pressing Ok. Read the complete article here.

Export table as XML file in ADF by Waslley Souza

clip_image002Since I wrote about how to export table to Excel in Oracle ADF, it has been one of the most read blog posts. I know that the export of data is an important feature in an application, this way, I will show how to export rows (all or some) of the table as an XML file.

Download the sample application: ADFXMLApp.zip.

Create a new ADF application that will use data of employees.

Go to EmployeesView View Object and generate the View Object Implementation Class.

Copy the following code inside EmployeesViewImpl class. Read the complete article here.

ADF Buch (ADF Book) free download

The German ADF community was established in 2009. Since then the community collaborated intensely and provided a lot of German content on the topic of ADF.

clip_image002A selection of these contributions that has originally been published in the period of 2010 to 2014 was put together by a small team (Oracle and partners supported by the DOAG) into the so called "ADF Buch". The ADF Buch contains articles, talks and workshop tutorials regarding the Oracle Application Development Framework (ADF) provided on a total of 1.400 pages mainly in German language. 70 single contributions by 40 authors offer a huge amount of proven knowledge and cover the whole area of ADF including the Mobile Application Framework (MAF).

In the last chapter the contributing persons and companies are presented in short profiles.

The ADF Buch is available for download free of charge as a pdf file (100 MB, fast download).

More details regarding the ADF Buch.

Deploying ADF application in Oracle Cloud by Waslley Souza

clip_image001Have you ever thought about run your ADF application on cloud? In this blog post I will show how to deploy local database tables and ADF application to Oracle Cloud using JDeveloper 11g. I would like to thank to my friend Jürgen Kress that gave me an Oracle Cloud’s licence. If you want you can get a free trial here: Oracle Cloud PaaS & SaaS Trials.

Each Oracle Java Cloud Service instance must be associated with an Oracle Database Cloud Service instance that hosts the schemas required by JRF. This way, when you request an Oracle Java Cloud Service, you will receive an Oracle Database Cloud Service Instance too.

Before you start to create your ADF application, you need to download and install JDeveloper 11.1.1.7.1 for Java and ADF deployment on Oracle Cloud.

Download the sample application: ADFCloudApp.zip.

I created a simple ADF application called ADFCloudApp that manages data of employees.

ADFCloudApp uses “EMPLOYEES” and “JOBS” tables, so we need to deploy these tables to cloud.
In the main menu, choose View > Database > Database Navigator.
In the Database Navigator window, right-click the Cloud Connections node and create a new Cloud Connection. Read the complete article here.

Managing Logs in Oracle WebLogic Server by Ahmed Aboulnaga

clip_image002Oracle WebLogic Server has quite a number of log files that are generated which naturally tend to grow over time. Without any type of log rotation, archiving, or purging set up, your file system can be filled up rather quickly and eventually pose stability issues to your application environment. Listen from someone who has seen it all–if your file system is full, your application will likely hang and in-flight transactions impacted.

Fortunately, setting up your environment to prevent this scenario is extremely simple. One consideration is to move all the logs to a completely separate and independent mount point outside your WebLogic domain. But this in itself still does not protect against application failures.

In this article, we describe a few basic things you can do to manage your logs. Given the comprehensive nature of Oracle WebLogic Server, there are a number of log files you need to monitor and control, highlighted in the following table.

Unfortunately, the WebLogic Server log rotation affects only the .log files but not the standard .out files, which is generated when you use Node Manager to start up and shut down the managed servers or if you start them up as a background process (e.g., using nohup). You must implement a custom solution for the system .out files and there are many resources available online that describe various approaches. We present one such option.

There are numerous log files in Oracle WebLogic Server and ideally you would want to ensure that the number of rotated log files is controlled. For example, you may have already taken the steps to rotate the log files as they grow to a certain size. This is a great first step, but you also should control how many of those rotated files you wish to retain, otherwise your file system will likely get filled up over time if they are not manually deleted. Fortunately, the WebLogic Server Administration Console provides us the means to easily do so as well.

Based on the configuration described in this article, each log type requires 300 MB of disk space, as we are rotating the logs after they reach 10 MB in size and keeping a maximum 30 files before removing them. All instructions are applicable to both Oracle WebLogic Server 11g and 12c.

Managed Server Logs

Entries generated by a Java application are generally logged in the .log files. The WebLogic Server administrator should not trust that the application appropriately controls and logs entries resourcefully. Thus, it is recommended to control these files by enabling log rotation (either by time, by size, or both) and to limit the number of retained log files. This will prevent runaway processes from endless logging to your file system and control growth.

1. Log in to the WebLogic Server Administration Console.

2. Navigate to “Server > [managed server] > Logging > General”.

3. Set the following values: Read the complete article here.
