Tip to Quickly Test JDeveloper based Customizations Locally

We have been exploring design time customizations on various Fusion Applications and compiled  a list of dependencies that cause deployment failures in the integrated WLS. Below list contains  servlets, filters and EJB reference entries that can be commented in web.xml for testing the customizations locally.

For HCM comment out below in your Customization workspace's web.xml:

Servlet Entries

  • IntegrateTaskFlowWithTask
  • RESTfulAPI
  • PortletProducerResourceServlet

EJB References

  • ess/runtime
  • ess/metadata

For Financials comment out below in your Customization workspace's web.xml:

Filter Entries

  • CardIssuerMDSFilter
  • BankRelationshipsMDSFilter

Servlet Entries

  • IntegrateTaskFlowWithTask
  • PersonImage
  • PersonVCard
  • PortletProducerResourceServlet
  • IntegrateTaskFlowWithTask
  • RESTfulAPI

Please do make sure to comment the entry as well as the mapping in the web.xml. Another very common dependency causing deployment failures in integrated WLS is the missing oracle.apps.common.resource library. The error stack may look like below:

[J2EE:160149]Error while processing library references. Unresolved application library
 references, defined in weblogic-application.xml: [Extension-Name: 
oracle.apps.common.resource, exact-match: false].'
 [J2EE:160149]Error while processing library references
Please read here about deploying it as a shared library to the integrated WLS

Add ADF library to Fusion Applications Workspace

When working in JDeveloper on customizations, you might hit errors in the console for missing an application specific resource or NoClassDefFoundException. This happens because all the required libraries to customize a page may not have been added to the Fusion Customization Application workspace.[Read More]

Announcement: How-To Series Explaining Customizations Step By Step

Yesterday we officially launched our new YouTube channel.  Today we are announcing another initiative that we have been working on for a while: to help you learn common customization tasks, we are going to publish a series of detailed How-To documents with lots of screenshots.  Many of these will also be the script for a YouTube video, giving you the choice to see it in action or go through the steps yourself guided by a PDF document.

The focus of the initial set of How-Tos will be JDeveloper/ADF customizations, but over time we will expand into other areas.  Today's first document is meant to get everyone up to the point where a JDeveloper environment is up and running: "How to Get Started With JDeveloper Customizations for Fusion Applications" white paper shows you how to set up JDeveloper, configure the integrated WLS domain, and make a very, very simple customization work.

As always we are looking for your feedback.  Please let us know whether this is helpful for your work or learning, and what use cases you would like to see us document in these How-Tos.

Why ADFbc Customizations are restricted to GLOBAL layer

Fusion Extensibility Guide Section 10.2.2 Customizing the Artifacts mentions “All customizations for ADF business components must be done in the Global layer. View layer customizations can be made in any other layer except User”. You may wonder why such a restriction is necessary for ADFbc? To understand that we need to understand the life cycle of ADFbc first.
