Converting ADF Pages to Reusable Page Fragments
By Shay Shmeltzer on Jul 15, 2011
So you finished building a great ADF Faces JSF page, and now you realize that you actually need the same functionality in 30 other places in your application. Well wouldn't it have been great to know about it before you started? What am I suppose to do now? How can I include one JSF page inside another JSF page?
Don't worry - JDeveloper and ADF come to the rescue.
ADF has some great reusability features for JSF pages in the form of TaskFlows, Page Fragments and Regions. And even if you didn't plan ahead of time to use those, you can still get your page to become a pagefragment and be included in other pages quite easily with the JDeveloper convert options for taskflows.
Here is a small demo that shows how to take a regular ADF Faces page, and convert it to be a resuable page that you can include in multiple other pages.
Want to learn more about taskflows and regions - you can start with this ADF Controller Overview seminar I recorded.
And you can then learn even more things in the taskflow sessions on the ADF Insider seminar.
