Finding a code by typing the description and autosuggest
By Shay Shmeltzer-Oracle on Aug 25, 2011
A while back I created a blog/demo that showed how easy it is to get the translation of a code field to show up in ADF forms by using a join based VO on two entities and partial trigger on the code field.
I got an interesting question on the comments for that entry that asked whether I can do the reverse and allow the user to type the description of a field and get the code based on the description. Well it turns out that is not that complex either. Throw in the ease of implementing auto-suggest behavior with ADF BC and ADF Faces and you got a very nice solution for that question.
