Accessing database connect information in ADF

Frank Nimphius
Master Principal Product Manager

To get the database connect information of an ADF BC model in ADF, expose the following code in a public method on the ApplicationModule Impl

public String getDatabaseInformation(){
  DBTransaction dbTransaction = (DBTransaction) this.getTransaction();
  PreparedStatement prepStatement =
              dbTransaction.createPreparedStatement("select * from dual", 0);    try {
    String dbSchema =
    String connectURL =
    //returns schema_name@host:port:sid
    return dbSchema + connectURL.substring(connectURL.indexOf("@")-1);             
} catch (SQLException e) {
    return null;

Expose this method on the AM client interface if you need this to be accessible from the ADF client, for example a method binding in a PageDef file, or a managed bean.
