Simpler Development with the new List ADF Faces component in 11.1.1.7

A new component that showed up in the JDeveloper 11.1.1.7 release is the af:listView component. This component will become more and more popular as more people target tablet devices with ADF Faces UI. The component allows you to create a scrollable list from a collection of data, and it also does fetching with ranges so you don't get too much network traffic. If you ever used a contacts list on a smart phone you'll recognize the list view source of inspiration - check out the runtime demo of the component here.

The component was actually backported into 11.1.1.7 from the 12c version - and while in the 12c version of JDeveloper there is better design time support for adding and binding a listview to a page, in the current release the work will mostly be manual.

However, for the lazy developer there are some shortcuts you can take to create the list component faster.

Here is a short video that shows you how to leverage an existing table component on your page to make the creation of the list component easier and with more functionality.

Comments:

The clarity of video is not good enough.
Could you post a new video.

Thanks,
Vishnui

Vishnui - set youtube to deliver the video in 720HD - which is the format the video was recorded - you can also try maximizing the screen - the video is a 1024*768 resolution

Any word on the release of JDeveloper 12c? There seems to be no information available about its availability.

guest - due to legal restrictions we can't communicate exact release dates for future versions. But the 12c version of JDeveloper should be out soon.
