What Select statement did my ADF application send to the database

A question came up on our internal mail lists asking whether a view object might "trim" its select statement if some of the attributes we never used; e.g. they weren't bound to a page.

I wanted to test this out so a simple trick to ensure you can see the select statement that is being sent to the database is the following.  For the ViewController project, right click and Select Project Properties and then Run/Debug/Profile.  In the resulting dialog set Java Options to -Djbo.debugoutput=console

This will ensure that the SELECT statement (and alot more besides) will be sent to the log console window in JDeveloper, as show below.

This is a really valuable tip for tracing out what the framework is doing when you perform specific actions in your application

Modernize an Oracle Forms UI

A question came up on the ODTUG forums today about redeveloping an existing Forms application because the UI looked dated.  The question is something that I hear a lot and so I wrote an article discussing the pros, cons and case studies.  This article was first published in the ODTUG Technical Journal.

So if you are considering rewriting a Forms application because you think it looks dated you may want to first of all read this.
