How-to read data from selected tree node

By default, the SelectionListener property of an ADF bound tree points to the makeCurrent method of the FacesCtrlHierBinding class in ADF to synchronize the current row in the ADF binding layer with the selected tree node. To customize the selection behavior, or just to read the selected node value in Java, you override the default configuration with an EL string pointing to a managed bean method property. In the following I show how you change the selection listener while preserving the default ADF selection behavior.

To change the SelectionListener, select the tree component in the Structure Window and open the Oracle JDeveloper Property Inspector. From the context menu, select the Edit option to create a new listener method in a new or an existing managed bean.

For this example, I created a new managed bean. On tree node select, the managed bean code prints the selected tree node value(s)

import org.apache.myfaces.trinidad.model.CollectionModel;
import org.apache.myfaces.trinidad.model.RowKeySet;
import org.apache.myfaces.trinidad.model.TreeModel;  
public class TreeSampleBean {
 public TreeSampleBean() {}
 public void onTreeSelect(SelectionEvent selectionEvent) {
  //original selection listener set by ADF
  //#{bindings.allDepartments.treeModel.makeCurrent}
  String adfSelectionListener = "#{bindings.allDepartments.treeModel.makeCurrent}";
  //make sure the default selection listener functionality is 
  //preserved. you don't need to do this for multi select trees 
  //as the ADF binding only supports single current row selection  
 
  /* START PRESERVER DEFAULT ADF SELECT BEHAVIOR */
  FacesContext fctx = FacesContext.getCurrentInstance();
  Application application = fctx.getApplication();
  ELContext elCtx = fctx.getELContext();
  ExpressionFactory exprFactory = application.getExpressionFactory();
  
  MethodExpression me = null;
  me = exprFactory.createMethodExpression(elCtx, adfSelectionListener, 
                                          Object.class, newClass[]{SelectionEvent.class}); 
  me.invoke(elCtx, new Object[] { selectionEvent });  

  /* END PRESERVER DEFAULT ADF SELECT BEHAVIOR */
  RichTree tree = (RichTree)selectionEvent.getSource();
  TreeModel model = (TreeModel)tree.getValue();   
 
  //get selected nodes
  RowKeySet rowKeySet = selectionEvent.getAddedSet(); 
  Iterator rksIterator = rowKeySet.iterator(); 
  //for single select configurations,this only is called once 
  while (rksIterator.hasNext()) {
    List key = (List)rksIterator.next();
    JUCtrlHierBinding treeBinding = null;
    CollectionModel collectionModel = (CollectionModel)tree.getValue();
    treeBinding = (JUCtrlHierBinding)collectionModel.getWrappedData(); 
    JUCtrlHierNodeBinding nodeBinding = null;
    nodeBinding = treeBinding.findNodeByKeyPath(key);
    Row rw = nodeBinding.getRow();
    //print first row attribute. Note that in a tree you have to 
    //determine the node type if you want to select node attributes 
    //by name and not index 
    String rowType = rw.getStructureDef().getDefName();
  
    if(rowType.equalsIgnoreCase("DepartmentsView")){
      System.out.println("This row is a department: " +  
                         rw.getAttribute("DepartmentId"));
    }
    else if(rowType.equalsIgnoreCase("EmployeesView")){
     System.out.println("This row is an employee: " + 
                         rw.getAttribute("EmployeeId"));
    }     
    else{
      System.out.println("Huh????");  
    }
    // ... do more useful stuff here   
  }   

}
