A little while ago I got a very nice challenge play around with the ADF client-side framework. The customer had a table where users could multi-select via an extra column with checkboxes. Header of that column also contained a checkbox to select or deselect everything at once. For example:
It was implemented using autoSubmit and partialTriggers. Due to the roundtrip to the server the response time was low when having a lot of rows. To speed it up, I was asked to look if (de)selecting all rows could be done on the client.
Never having worked with that part of ADF yet, I started searching and quickly found the Oracle documentation, but actual examples to clarify some topics.. hmmm not so much.
The use case is quite specific but I thought it would still be nice to blog about it to be at least an example of some of the client-side functionality for other people in need.
