I will tell you about nice trick to display LOV description. Usually you would create separate attribute in VO for LOV description and base LOV on this attribute (read about it in my previous post - Defining the LOV on a Reference Attribute in Oracle ADF 11g). But there is one more way - it makes it much faster to define LOV on description, but you should be aware about additional SQL statement executed to fetch description text.
You could set converter for ADF UI LOV, and then LOV component would use description by itself, without any additional configuration.
It is important to set correct order for LOV display attributes. Make sure to set description attribute to be first in the list for converter approach to work: Read the complete article here.
