ADF 12.2.1 Responsive Dashboard with Masonry Layout by Andrejus Baranovskis

clip_image002ADF 12.2.1 is a breakthrough in responsive UI. Never before it was so easy to implement good looking and high performance ADF UI. Masonry layout component allows to develop responsive dashboard made from separate tiles. Tiles can be reordered, resized and even removed. Tiles layout is dynamically constructed based on available screen size.
You should see how it works, check video based on sample application - DashboardApp.zip. Tiles are reordered as I change screen size, and even more - I can reorder them by myself, just with drag and drop:

This is default dashboard layout with four tiles on wide screen: Read the complete article here.

ADF 12.2.1: Using the Theme Editor by Rubén Rodríguez Santiago

clip_image002A couple of weeks ago Oracle released ADF 12.2.1 with many cool features and one of them is the Theme Editor. With this new tool you can change the look and feel of you application by selecting the desired style of the components and see the changes automatically right in the browser. This tool can help developers who are not experts in CSS to build applications with a great look and feel.
We have to make a couple of things in order to use the theme editor.
First we have to create a new application based on an existing EAR file.

The EAR file we are going to use is located inside our 12.2.1 Middleware Home, in my installation this path is: Read the complete article here.

Dashboard Implementation with ADF 12c Alta UI by Andrejus Baranovskis

clip_image002Alta UI in ADF 12c provides great options for dashboard implementation. You can use so called 'info tiles' as blocks displaying summary information. These blocks are clickable and based on active tile, content can be rendered. It looks not only modern, but also user friendly.
I have implemented sample application - ADFAltaApp_v11.zip with Alta UI dashboard, based on code examples from Oracle WorkBetter application. You could download and run my sample, it renders two vertically aligned info tiles with summarised information:

Click on second info tile, main content will be changed:

Info tile block is implemented as ADF declarative component with a set of properties to make it generic and reusable: Read the complete article here.

Consume JSON based ADF REST Services in ADF 12.2.1 (with REST DataControl) by Consume JSON based ADF REST Services in ADF 12.2.1 (with REST DataControl) by Andreas Koop

clip_image002In ADF 12.2.1 the capabilities for handling with REST services has been greatly improved. You can now expose ADF BC (ViewObjects) as  REST service in JSON format.  On the other hand there are improvements in the REST DataControl.
In this blog post I am going to show how to consume this REST Service and create a basic ADF Table.
So here is a basic REST Service for employees

JDev 12.2.1: Remote Task Flows in Action by Timo Hahn

clip_image001The new JDeveloper version 12.2.1 is just out and has a lot of new features to investigate. In this post we see how remote task flows work. Yes, they are finally here and they are working. At least if you install a patch available from support.oracle.com.
The downloadable version on JDev 12.2.1 has a small bug which prevents you from running remote task flows (refer to https://community.oracle.com/thread/3816032). Support and the dev team quickly delivered a patch for this. To get the patch, open a service request and ask for a patch for bug 22132843.

Let’s start. We need two applications to show how remote task flows are implmented. One is the remote task flow producer, one consumes the remote task flow. An application can be both, producer and consumer. For this sample we keep it simple and define one app as producer and one as consumer.

Producer Application
This application is really simple as it consists of only one page and one task flow which shows the departments and its employees of the HR DB schema. Read the complete article here.

Declarative Web User Interface Development by the Citizen Developer – Introducing the Oracle Application Builder Cloud Service by Lucas Jellema

clip_image002The Citizen Developer – also known as the Line of Business user – is the non-technical but still somewhat IT-savvy member of a business department. She may configure web surveys, create macros in Excel spreadsheets, perform complex data analysis or maintain a departmental web site. She does things that touch upon the responsibilities of the corporate IT department, probably knows some people in that department to consult with and she may want to do even more. Gartner identified the citizen developer a few years ago and Oracle has identified her as a persona it wants to cater for with the public cloud.

The Process Cloud Service allows the citizen developer to design, run and manage simple human workflows. Document Cloud Service and Social Network are available to share and collaborate on documents; they both are integrated with the Process Cloud Service. Simple SaaS-2-SaaS integrations can be configured with the Integration Cloud Service. With Oracle Data Visualization Cloud Service, the citizen developer can play ‘data detective’ on data uploaded from Excel spreadsheets and with Oracle Big Data Discovery Cloud Service, some similar slice-and-dice actions can be done on big data stored on Hadoop.

Two cloud services allow the citizen developer to create an interactive application. The MCS (Mobile Cloud Service) provides the Mobile Application Accelerator (MAX for friends) feature that can be used to declaratively compose a MAF mobile app. The Application Builder Cloud Service (ABCS) allows our line of business user to develop a web application in a declarative manner. ABCS hosts the application, does access management, manages custom data objects and takes care of interactions with REST services. As Oracle puts it on https://cloud.oracle.com/ApplicationBuilder :” Oracle Application Builder Cloud Service enables business users with no previous programming experience to rapidly create web and mobile apps, minimizing dependence on IT departments and reducing infrastructure costs.” In order to create a new web application – hosted by ABCS – one has to go through the following steps: Read the complete article here.

JET – Rendering Table from ADF BC REST Service by Andrejus Baranovskis

clip_image002Oracle JET - new tool for us to build UI applications with JavaScript. Right now there is no out of the box integration with ADF Faces, I heard on OOW there might be some sort of integration available in the future. At the end of the day this is only JavaScript and you can integrate it into existing ADF page by yourself. Probably you would not want this, ADF Faces offers very rich set of functionalities and there is no need in extra components. Unless you would like to use WebSockets in ADF and would like to push data from JavaScript into DVT components - it could be easier to do this with JET, instead of going through ADF Bindings layer.
JET comes with developer guide, this is the first source of information along with Cookbook examples. I have implemented sample application for today post, based on developer guide section - Creating a CRUD Application Using Oracle JET. Here you can download the sample - SimpleJETApp.zip. If you would like to run it, make sure to add JET JavaScript libraries, you can take them from JET QuickStart. Size of these libraries was too large, this is why I have removed them.
REST service is implemented with ADF BC, I have described it in previous post - ADF 12.2.1 ADF BC Support for REST.
This is how it looks a table rendered with JET from REST data supplied by ADF BC, with pagination support. JET is using Alta UI style, visually there is no much difference comparing to ADF Faces:

Data is displayed from REST generated on top of ADF BC: Read the complete article here.

JavaScript Extension Toolkit (Oracle JET) by Rubén Rodríguez Santiago

clip_image002

Last Friday was a day with lots of Oracle products releases (Check Oracle ADF 12.2.1 release notes) and Oracle also released one of the most expected products Oracle JavaScript Extension Toolkit, also known as Oracle JET, the new JavaScript Framework. Oracle JET is targeted at intermediate to advanced JavaScript developers working on client-side applications. It's a collection of open source JavaScript libraries along with a set of Oracle contributed JavaScript libraries that make it as simple and efficient as possible to build applications that consume and interact with Oracle products and services, especially Oracle Cloud services.

Oracle JET is a framework to develop applications based on some Open Source libraries:
JQuery

JQuery is a JavaScript library that help us to simplify the way to interact with HTML files, manipulate DOM tree and handle events.
JQuery UI

JQuery UI is a components library build on top of JQuery that offer us different widgets and allow us to interact easily with them (resize, drag and drop, etc). We can also add those components transitions and effects.
Knockout

Knockout is a library that allow us to create responsive interfaces with a clean underlying data model having a Model-View-ViewModel (MVVM) architecture design pattern.

  • RequireJS

RequireJS is more than a library to resolve dependencies  It also provides an asynchronous file and module loader.

  • Hammer

Hammer is an open-source library that can recognize gestures made by touch, mouse and pointer events. Read the complete article here.
