Announcing The Visual Builder Cookbook

Shay Shmeltzer
Director of Product Management - Oracle

The Visual Builder team is excited to announce the release of the new Visual Builder Cookbook - a key educational resource that will help you implement a variety of techniques with Visual Builder. The cookbook provides a collection of step-by-step recipes that teach you how to implement common usecases with Visual Builder. Not only do you get the instructions, you also get the full code for all the solutions - so you can further inspect and learn from it.

The cookbook is provided as a Visual Builder application hosted at - https://vbcookbook.oracle.com.

Furthermore, you can create your own copy of the application on your server. Simply create a new application and choose the "Oracle Visual Builder Cookbook" template for the app - this will install a complete copy of the cookbook in your environment. The app has everything you need to run the samples - including the backend business objects - and the code for all the samples is right there at your fingertips.

What's In The Cookbook?

The book cover recipes that address the following topics:

  • Handling master-detail and many-to-many relationships
  • Working with tables and lists and implementing - filtering, custom styling, row actions, multi selection
  • Editable table and saving data in transaction/batch
  • List of values (LOV) patterns
  • Multi step wizard
  • File upload
  • Working with data in Oracle Databases using ORDS

And much more

Using the Cookbook

We suggest you review the various solutions demonstrated in the cookbook, for each one you'll see a page that demonstrate the functionality.

Next to the sample app on the same page you'll find step-by-step instructions on how you can build the same functionality using the Visual Builder designer. 

If you created a cookbook application in your own VB instance - you'll also be able to directly access the code, look at the variables, action chains, and any other artifact involved.
