Groovy Introduction on Customer Connect And Other Session Recommendations

Richard Bingham
Senior Development Manager

If you missed it please review the excellent Groovy Scripting session run recently on Oracle Customer Connect. It contained lots of information for those new to the language, and illustrated the power of Application Composer using the following simple diagram.

Most of the session was based on two excellent live demos of implementing custom Sales Cloud functionality using Application Composer and Groovy. The examples were short, simple to understand and illustrated some common requirements we have also heard. Whilst parts of these are available in our YouTube channel, it was nice to see these in one single session.


  • The first added functionality to opportunity revenue lines, with new fields and code that identified certain product types for which to generate a new Net Present Value figure. This illustrated how to use formula fields, global functions, and custom validation. 
  • The second added a custom object for raising complaints, and illustrated how to use groovy to set a field value from an unrelated object, and how to add validation to ensure unique records are always created.

Please consider replaying the session using this streaming link (login required).
