Shay Shmeltzer's Oracle Development Tools Tips

Simpler Development with the new List ADF Faces component in

Shay Shmeltzer
Director of Product Management - Oracle

A new component that showed up in the JDeveloper 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 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.

    The clarity of video is not good enough.

    Could you post a new video.

    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.
