WebSocket Accelerated Live Data Synchronization for MAF by Andrejus Baranovskis

clip_image002New generation Mobile and Web applications are going to use WebSockets. This is one of the fastest and convenient ways to transfer JSON formatted data from the server to the client and back. Huge advantage - server could initiate data synchronisation request and deliver JSON messages directly to the client. You should read my previous post about detail information how to configure MAF with WebSocket - Oracle MAF and WebSockets Integration - Live Twitter Stream.
In this post I would like to describe, how to integrate further information received through WebSocket with MAF components. I will use MAF Tree Map UI component to display live data for Tweets locations.
Below you could see screen recording - MAF Tree Map is getting refreshed automatically, each time when update through WebSocket channel is being received. This is amazing, how fast data through WebSocket channel is coming. In this test, MAF is handling around 1 update per second, received from WebSocket: Read the complete article here.

ADF BC Web Service – Return List of Complex Types by Rohan Walia

clip_image002ADF Business Components can be exposed as SOAP Services. Application Module provides Service Interfaces as a way to define operations for the services to be exposed. Custom methods written in AMImpl class can also be exposed as operation of web services.
But one of the limitation is that there is restriction on return types from the services exposed as service interface from Application Module.
In this post we will see how easily we can develop a web service using ADF BC Service Interface and can tweak/use one of the given returnType List to return list of complex type object.
Use case here is to create an operation in ApplicationModuleImpl class to return List of Object consiting of three variables -  DepartmentName,ManagerId,IsManagerFlag and expose the operation as ADF BC Service Interface SOAP Service. (Jdeveloper 11.1.1.7)
So Lets get started
Created a simple ADF Web Application using HR Schema and created DepartmentsEO , VO and AM and there respective Java Classes.
Create a Programmatic VO - WSResultPVO which will be returned from the operation of the WebService.
Now Add three variables in the PVO. DepartmentName,ManagerId and IsManagerFlag. Read the complete article here.

Indicator for Background REST Service Access with A-Team Mobile Persistence Accelerator by Andrejus Baranovskis

clip_image002You should check my previous post about Background REST Service Access with A-Team Mobile Persistence Accelerator (AMPA). There I describe how to optimise MAF performance for REST service calls, allow user to continue working with the mobile application, without locking the screen until Web Service response arrives. Steven Davelaar have documented how it works, you can read it in his blog - Calling Web Services in Background Using MAF 2.1.
I have updated sample application from previous post, to include indicator for AMPA background service call status tracking. Updated sample application - MobileServiceBusApp_v8.zip.
AMPA provides application scope variable, which acts as a flag and indicates when background service call is executed. Based on this flag, we could conditionally display animated GIF image, this will help user to understand if background service call still runs:

When user is searching and request is being processed in background, he will see rotating status indicator in the top right corner: Read the complete article here.

How to implement iBeacon in MAF 2.1.1 by Graeme Mawson

clip_image001Want to alert your customer to a special loyalty discount offer when they enter the menswear department in one of your retail stores?  Want to present information about a famous artist’s life when a visitor to your museum nears one of the artist’s paintings?  These are just two of the many real-world scenarios made possible by the use of iBeacon technology.

This blog post provides an introduction to iBeacon technology and a description of how to build two different MAF apps – one that pretends to be an iBeacon and another that detects iBeacons and uses the local notifications functionality provided in MAF 2.1.1 to inform the user, even when the app isn’t even running.

To deploy these apps to iOS devices you will need an iOS developer account.

What is a beacon?

A beacon is a device that is intentionally conspicuous to draw attention to a location, such as a lighthouse sitting on the edge of a cliff.

In in the Internet of Things (or IoT), a beacon is a small electronic device that transmits a regular radio signal according to the Bluetooth v4 Low Energy spec (otherwise known as “BLE”).  A beacon typically does no more than advertise its existence by transmitting a unique identifier and can last for months on a single cell battery.

Any BLE-enabled device, such as a modern smartphone, can detect a beacon by listening for BLE-based transmissions.

Whilst the possibilities appear endless, typical applications for beacons currently include retail stores, exhibition halls, museums, places of employment and homes, where users can be alerted to information pertaining to their current location within a building.

What is (an) iBeacon?

iBeacon is a technology introduced by Apple in iOS 7 that defines a standard for how a beacon identifies itself (or “advertises”) in its BLE transmissions.  Any beacon that implements this standard can be called an iBeacon.

Most beacon manufacturers implement the iBeacon standard by default, whilst some can also be configured to use their own proprietary protocol.  It’s also possible to configure a post-2012 iOS device, or Mac running OS X Mavericks (not Yosemite), to act as an iBeacon.

Whilst the iBeacon technology is included in the iOS Core Location framework since iOS 7, any BLE-enabled device can detect iBeacons and various libraries exist for use on devices running Android 4.3 or above.

How does iBeacon work? Read the complete article here.

MAF 2.1.1 : Using Local Notifications by Luc Bors

clip_image002One of the new features in version 2.1.1. of Oracle MAF are local notifications.
These notifications originate within the MAF application and are received by the same application. They are delivered to the end user through standard mechanisms supported by the mobile device platform (for example, banner, sound) and can work when the application is either in the foreground, background or not running at all.
I this post I show you an example of how to work with Local Notifications from Java. I use a simple MAF app. I will not explain how to build this app, but the source can be downloaded here. It is mainly derived from the "LocalNotificationDemo" public sample app.
Introducing Local Notifications
As with many framework features, MAF supports three ways to set Local Notifications. First you can use the device features datacontrol. To support declarative use of Local Notifications, the DeviceFeatures data control includes the addLocalNotification and cancelLocalNotification methods, which enable MAF applications to leverage a device's interface for managing notifications so end users can schedule or cancel local notifications.

Second you have the option to set Local Notifications from JavaScript. MAF allows you to manage local notifications using JavaScript APIs in the adf.mf.api.localnotification namespace. The methods add() and cancel() are available. More info on this is available from the developer guide (see resources at the end of this post).
Finally you can set Local Notifications from Java code, which is what I will explain in the remaining part of this post.
Set up the Listening Part
Because the Listening part is the same for all methods mentioned above I will start to explain this before going into detail for setting Local Notifications from Java code.
The concept of Local Notifications is from an MAF perspective not different from Push Notifications
First we need to create an eventListener that specifically listens for Local Notifications.
This class must implement oracle.adfmf.framework.event.EventListener.
In this class we must use the onMessage() method, which will fire when a notification is received. Read the complete article here.

Reading MAF iOS Simulator Logging Output by Andrejus Baranovskis

clip_image002It could be very handy to know how and where to read MAF logging output from iOS simulator. This is not that obvious to find logging output on Mac OS system. All log is written into application.log file, this file is located inside temporary application directory. I will explain how to locate this directory and how to open application.log file. You can read more about MAF testing and logging here - 18.5 Using and Configuring Logging.
Sample mobile application - ADFMobileLogginApp.zip, is pretty basic and contains System.out.println to write a message into application.log file: Read the complete article here.
