This application manages the procurement activities with in an organization. The different type of procurement activates handled by this application are:• • • • • Search for the Registrations. Creating Registration and adding item lines to Registration. Search item in catalog and categories. Edit the existing created registration. Search already created registration.

It is best to view this document with View as web layout, whether you are using the MS Word or the Open office Word Editor. Terms Used in Application

1) A Registration is created which can later on used to create purchase order. 2) 3) 4) 5)
Users add items in registration. Registration lines are items which are added in registration. Catalog contain categories. Categories contain items. PFI is package, fright and insurance charges.

Following database objects are used in this application:CATALOG: - database table which stores catalog details. CATEGORY: - database table used to store various categories of a catalog. ITEM: - database table used to store item belongs to different categories. PFI_DETAILS:- database table used to store Packaging, Freight and Insurance percentage based on the mode of payment of the item. REGISTRATION: - database table used to store registration created by users. REGISTRATION_S: sequence used to generated registration id REGISTRATION_LINES:- database table used to store goods which are added to registration.

Each database column of a table is represented as attribute in entity object. In my application user is storing data in two tables :→ in REGISTRATION table through registration page where user creates/edit new registration. Chapter 2 Creating Business Service Layer Objects :- In this learning application. For more conceptual knowledge on entity objects www. It includes data. → in REGISTRATION_LINES table through item details page where user add/edit quantity. Business services components acts as a communication channel between between an MVC application and a data source (usually a database).An entity object is a business components maps to a single object in the data source. Entity Objects required in application :. Step 2) In the “New Gallery” window under “Business Tier” select “ADF Business Components”. expand the Connections and Database nodes in the Application Resources panel to see the database objects.business rules and persistence behavior for database tables used in your application. http://kohlivikram. ADF Business Components in Depth.oracle.com/technology/documentation/jdev/adf_guidelines_manual.pdf and read Chapter 3. Steps to create RegistrationEO Step 1) Right click on the Model project and select New. hit So we will create two Entity objects based on above two tables with name RegistrationEO and RegistrationLinesEO. This components implements the O/R mapping and business rules/validations.• In the Application Navigator.com/ .

Name as “RegistrationEO”. And select schema object as “REGISTRATION”.entity”.blogspot. http://kohlivikram. specify package as “model.Step 4) In the Create Entity Object class.com/ .

This finishes the creation of the entity object RegistrationEO. Step 6) Generating Entity object java class for custom functionality:We need to set the RegistrationId value which comes up from the “Registration_S” database sequence when new registration is created. Click on the Edit Java Option icon and in the “Select Java Option window.blogspot. “Accessors” and “Create Method” check boxes and click ok.Step 5) Click next up till step 5 and click finish. Double click RegistrationEO from the application navigator window and select java option from the code editor window. check the “Generate Entity Object Class”.com/ . Check out following figure for help http://kohlivikram.

SequenceImpl SequenceImpl("REGISTRATION_S". protected void create(AttributeList attributeList) { super. setRegistrationId(seqNum).create(attributeList).server.getDBTransaction()).com/ . Step 7) Set up default values for Attributes http://kohlivikram. This method can be used to initialize default values for the first time entity row is created. Number seqNum=s. setRegNum("MP" + seqNum).SequenceImpl.getSequenceNumber().Open the RegistrationEOImpl class and replace the create(AttributeList attributeList)” method add following code import oracle.jbo.

Again double click the “RegStatus’ attribute and in the “Edit Attrbute” window set the value = ‘Open’. Association allow you to navigate from one entity instance to either another entity instance or a collection of related instances. If the foreign key relation ship exist at database level . Associations often map to foreign key relationships between tables in the database. As in our SQL script we haven't defined any foreign key constraints.In our application in the Registration page. Step 3) Select “RegistrationId” under RegistrationEO from “Select Source Attribute” and “RegistrationId” from “RegistrationLinesEO” under “Select Destination Attribute”. Number seqNum=s.entity node and select “New Association”.assoc” and Name as 'RegLinesAO”. Select the Attributes tab from the code editor window and select “Creation Date” attribute.getSequenceNumber().oracle. setLineId(seqNum). For more conceptual knowledge on association hit http://www.html?_template=/ocom/print Step 1) Right click the model. we have to manually define the association between these two entity objects. And click on add button.blogspot. check the history column check box and select “created on” from drop down and click ok. Step 2) Specify package as “model.And click next. Steps to create RegistrationLinesEO In a similar fashion you can create entity object RegistrationLinesEO.com/ .getDBTransaction()).create(attributeList). Select the ‘ProcType’ attribute and check the Mandatory check box to make this field required in the UI.entity. SequenceImpl SequenceImpl("REGISTRATION_LINE_S". And add the following create method in the RegistrationEOImpl class protected void create(AttributeList attributeList) { super. http://kohlivikram.2 Creating Entity Association :.com/technology/oramag/oracle/05nov/o65frame. } s = new 2. ADF framework will itself create the association. Double click it and in the “Edit Attribute” window.Entity association defines the relationship between two entity objects based on entity attributes. the creation date default value should be ‘current system date’ and registration status field default value should be ‘Open’.

2.Step 4) Click next until “step 4 of 5” and then click finish.com/ . A view object are either :Entity based which means view attributes are mapped to entity object attributes .View objects are ADF business components that collects data from the database based on the SQL query. SQL query columns map to view attributes in the view object . we will create following view objects :2. We create read only view object for UI pages which only shows data and entity based view objects for pages which perform DML operations on data.1 Read only view objects http://kohlivikram. Thought we can create multiple UI pages based on the same view object.3 View Objects required in application :. For our application. SQL based also know as Read only View Objects which are not mapped to entity attributes.blogspot.3. I think we should create separate view object for individual page because application will be more maintainable.

Steps to set the “Requested By” field in registration page as LOV http://kohlivikram. → And in the Item list page for the Catalog and Category fields in the search region.5 List of Values used in Application There are various LOV components which are used in different pages in our application.com/ .2. In this learning application. This a I think one of the great features that has came up in ADF 11g as we are setting the LOV at the model layer itself. LOV is used in the → Registration page for the requested by field which will show the employees in the drop down list . In ADF 11g we define List of values against the VO attributes which are going to be displayed as LOV in the UI.

Requested By field in the Registration page shows all the employee name in the drop down list. http://kohlivikram.view package. Step 3) In the “List of Values: RequestedBy” . select the Attributes tab. And then select the “RequestedBy” attributes.blogspot.view” from the “Available View Object” and shift to the “View Accessors” list.com/ . In this window select the “EmployeeVO” under “model. click on the new “List Data Source”. click on the new LOV icon(a green color one) Step 4) In the “List of Values” window. And then click OK. Step 2) In the code editor window . Step 1) Select the RegistrationVO from the model. “View Accessors” window will appear.

Step 6) In the “UI Hints” tab. In the same fashion → create the list of values for the “Catalog name” attribute based on the “CatalogVO” as “List data source” in the “ItemListPageVO”. select and shift “Full Name” from “Available” to “Selected” list. Refer following figure to achieve this http://kohlivikram. In “UI Hints” select appropriate attributes to be displayed in LOV.Step 5) In the “List of values” select “EmployeeId” from “List Attributes”.com/ . And the click OK.blogspot.

In “UI Hints” select appropriate attributes to be displayed in LOV.com/ .–> create the list of values for the “Category name” attribute based on the “CategoryVO” as “List data source” in the “ItemListPageVO”.blogspot. Refer following figure to achieve this http://kohlivikram.

blogspot.Step 4) Click on finish. So you have finished creating the Business service layer using the ADF Business components.com/ . Your model structure should look like this http://kohlivikram.

Because in first case. we will put the validation that in the RegistrationLinesEO. as later on if view technology need to be changed .com/ . We should prefer to put up the validations at entity level rather then at database level using pl/sql or at client end using the JavaScript. This can be achieved by putting up this validation at entity level. we have a validation that quantity should be greater then five.blogspot.2.8 Validations In the Item Details page. or what if user access the data through other user interface. application has to hit the database every time validation has to be executed which will degrade the performance of the application by requiring the expensive JDBC calls. And later one is not suitable. As Item Details page will be based on the ItemDetailsPageVO which in turn based on the RegistrationLinesEO. So http://kohlivikram.

So this is how you can put up validations at the entity object level. And then click on “OK”. Step 3) In the “Add Validation Rules for: Qty” . Step 2) Select the Qty from the Attribute list and click on the “Add validation Rule” from the Validation Rules. In the Operator select “Greater Than” and in the “Enter Literal Value” enter 5.blogspot.entity and select the “Attributes”. select the Rule Type as “Compare”. Chapter 3 Working on the Controller and UI. Step 4) Now select the “failure Handling'” tab in the same window and enter the failure message as “Quantity should be greater the five”.Step1 ) Select the RegistrationLinesEO under the model. http://kohlivikram.com/ .

Step 3) Click the Facet Definitions tab and click the Add icon to add facets. Add two facets with name “MainPageRegion” and “ActionButtonBarRegion”.string and required as true. right click it and select “New”. 3.com/ . in the Items pane select JSF Page Template. When we make the layout modifications in the template. all the pages which are based on the template will automatically reflect the changes. Step 4) Click on the Attributes tab and click on the Add icon to add attribute with name PageTitle with type java.blogspot.lang. and click OK.We will now work on the controller and user interface for this application. We will start with building the page template. Page template is one of the very important features in ADF 11g which let us define the entire page layout. Enter the File Name as “MyPageTemplate”. Step 2) In the Categories tree. When a page is created using a template. Facets are predefined areas on a page template where content can eventually be inserted when building pages using the template. “Panel Stretch layout” is a http://kohlivikram. select the JSF node. it will inherit the defined layout.1 Steps to create the page template definition Step 1) Select the “ViewFolder”. Step 5) Select the “Panel Stretch layout” from the Component Palette and drop it on the af:pageTemplateDef in the structure window.

 InlineStyle(under style) = font-weight:bold. Set the Source property of the image =” /MyProcLogo. Step 9) Select the Center and add the panelStretchLayout inside it. And in the “Insert Facet Ref” window select “ActionButtonBarRegion”. Under the output text drop the “Facet Ref” component from the common components palette. http://kohlivikram.PageTitle}. And in the “Insert Facet Ref” window select “MainPageRegion”. font-size:small. color:Maroon. You will get the “MyProcLogo. Add an image component under that and then add an outputText under image.JPG” from the application build by me.blogspot. This is actually referring to the attribute we have created above when we were creating the page template definition.JPG”. And then add the OutputText component from the common component palette and drop it below the above created outputText. And set the value property of the outputText =” My Procurement Application”. And set the following properties of the OutputText in property inspector: Value= # {attrs. Inside the panelGroupLayout drop a separator from the layout component palette. add a panelGroupLayout.Now select the Panel Stretch Layout and set following properties in property inspector:StartWidth = 0px EndWidth = 0px TopHeight = 95px BottomHeight = 50px Step 6) Now expand the bottom facet under the panel Stretch layout and insert a panelGroupLayout inside that.com/ . Step 7) Now select the “Facet Ref” from the “common components” and drop it on the newly created panelGroupLayout in above step. We are using the panel group layout as it allows its child to be grouped vertically or horizontally. vertical-align:textbottom. Step 8) Select the top facet under the panelStretchLayout and add a panelGroupLayout. Your page template structure should look like as following in structure window. This is the facet under which we will add our action command buttons aligned horizontally. And set the following properties to it in property inspector:StartWidth = 0px EndWidth = 0px TopHeight = 0px BottomHeight = 0px Inside the center facet of the above added panel stretch layout.

Here is a plan. as it is not much dependent on other UI pages. Item Search Page because of the same reason.com/ .e. 3. And then we will create the Registration page.e. “Registration Search page”.2 Steps to create the Catalogue Category Page http://kohlivikram. and finally we will create the Home page i. Then we will create the Item List page i.We have finished creating the page template and now we will proceed to create our application pages. then Item details page. we will first create the Catalogue-Category page.blogspot.

Step 9) Expand the detail facet under master table and set the id property = CategoryTbl and width=650px. in the Items pane selects JSF Page and click ok.” Step 6) Expand the data control palette. Step 8) Add a new tree level rule by clicking on the green icon and select “CategoryVO” and shift the CategoryName and Descr to the display attributes and shift back the CategoryId to the Avaliable Attributes. and select the CatalogPageVO and drop it on the af:panelCollection. And set the id of the link to CategoryNameLK. Step 9) Select the Master table from the structure window and set the id properties = CatalogTbl.ProductCode} and action = ‘CreateNewLine’.Now set the width(under Apperance) of “CatalogeName” column to 250 and descrr column to 400.1 Creating the Master – Inline detail table to show Catalog-Categories Step 1) Select the “ViewController”. Step 2) In the Categories tree. 3. Step 10) Select the “af:outputText – {detailRow. Step 4) Select the af:pageTemplate from structure window and set pageTitle=” Catalogue Category Page”. the item table(will be creating in next step) gets refreshed with the items under this category. Replace <nodeDefinition DefName="model.ID = CategoryNameCol And select “Descrr” Column and set its width to 400.CategoryName}”.CategoryName}” under the inner inline table column CategoryName. We did this because on category name click. Expand the CategoryTbl and set following properties of “CategoryName” column width = 200 . From the convert Ouput Text. shift CatalogueName and Descrr to Display Attributes.CatalogVO and from the Available attributes.2. Now set the Text property of the link to “#{detailRow.categories table as master table and inline detail table and an items table under the master detail table showing item under selected category. Step 11) Similarly convert the product code output text to link with Text property = #{row. Expand the master table.

Adding Registration Managed Bean When user navigates from the Home page to the Registration page by clicking on the “New Registration” button, the page appear in the new registration creation mode. In that case “Add Item” buttons and “Search Item” buttons in the Registration Lines region should be disabled. As the registration it self is not yet created, user should not be able to add the lines in registration. So we have to disable these buttons for new registration and when user clicks on the “Save” button buttons should be enabled. We will achieve this with the help of managed bean. A managed bean is a regular java bean whose bean properties and methods are bind to the JSF components. We will use these properties to enable and disable the command button in our registration page. Step 1) Right click the view controller project and select new. From items section select “Java Class”. In the Create Java Class window specify Name as RegistrationBean and package as “view.beans” and click ok. Step 2) Add following two variables in the RegistrationBean class and generate accessors for both the variable(you can generate the accessors by right clicking on it and selecting ‘Generate Accessors’ from the context menu. private boolean disableAddItemBtn; private boolean disableSearchCataBtn; Step 3) Now we have to declare the above managed bean in the adfc-config.xml file. Open the adfc-config.xml file and in the code editor window, select Overview from the bottom of the window. Click on the “Add” icon and specify details as shown below:-

Step 4) Now we should also specify the initial value of the above created variable, which should be ‘false’ as “Add Item” and “Search Item” should be enable all the time except for the new registration request. For this select the Managed Properties and click on “Add” icon and add following properties:-

Step 5) Select the “Add Item” command button and set the Disabled property = #{RegistrationBean.disableSearchCataBtn} And then select the “Search Item” command button and set the Disabled property = #{RegistrationBean.disableSearchCataBtn}

Action Button Bar Region Step 1) Select the OperationsCommit from the data control palette and drop it on the ActionButtonBarRegion in the structure window and select operationsADF Button form the command window. Change the text property of the command button from Commit to Save and disabled property to false. Step 2) Insert inside the Save command button two action listener with following values:From= #{false} and To= #{RegistrationBean.disableAddItemBtn}  From= #{false} and To= #{RegistrationBean.disableSearchCataBtn} Step 3) Add another command button inside the ActionButtonBarRegion with Text property = “Home” , Action property =” HomePage” and Immediate property set to true. Your registration page layout in structure window should look like:-

our big fish. 3.This finishes the layout of the Registration page. We will now work with controller to define the flow of the system.5 Creating ‘Edit Registration’ bounded task flow A task flow is one of the best new features introduced in the ADF 11g. The nodes in the application are called activities representing a logical operation such as displaying a UI page.blogspot. ADF task flow defines the control flow in the application.com/ . executing http://kohlivikram.

Unbounded task flow: .com/ .com/technology/oramag/oracle/08-sep/o58frame. Step 2) In the create task flow window.oracle. or will be used to create new registration. http://kohlivikram. ADF controller which is build up using task flows is implementation on top of JSF.method in managed bean or application module or calling another task flow. Select “ADF Task Flow” from the Web TierJSF. Question arises why? Because Registration page functionality can be considered as a single unit of work. Step 4) Click on the blank area in the code editor. For more learning on task flow http://www. Registration can either be displaying an existing registration. Bounded task flows are called with in an unbounded task flow.It is a self contained unit of work that acts as a function. And registration page will be called up from different view pages. A router activity acts as an IF condition which transfers the control based on the expression language. In this sample application. Open it in code editor. There are two types of ADF task flows:Bounded task flow: . Step 3) Under the page flow directory your newly created task flow is added. we will create one bounded task flow called ‘Edit registration’. Deselect the “page fragment” check box and click ok.html Steps to create the ‘Edit Registration’ bounded task flow Step 1) Select the ViewController right click it and select new. a set of input parameters and one or more ways to return control. Select parameters from the property inspector. It has single entry point.It is a task flow with no boundaries and allows users to start at any page. And create two input parameters and one output parameter as follows hit Step 5) Add a router activity in the above created task flow with id=”RouteByMode”. So it is better to create the registration page as a single unit of work.blogspot. set the file name as ‘Edit-Registration’ and select the “Create as Bounded Task Flow” check box.

jspx from the application navigator window. Step 12) Select the RegistrationPage. Step 9) Select a control flow case from component palette and drag it from RouteByMode to CreateNewRegistration. Step 14) Again set the control flow from the “FindRegistration” to the “RegistrationPage”. specify two cases as below:- Step 7) Select the Method call activity from the component palette and drop it on the code editor. Set the ID of the new method activity as “CreateNewRegistration”. And set the from-outcome to “Create” Step 10) Create another method activity with ID as “FindRegitration” .com/ . Step 8) Now select the RegistrationPageVOOperationsCreateInsert from the data control palette and drop it on the CreateNewRegistration method activity. set the parameter value=#{pageFlowScope. Step 19) set the control flow from “RegistrationPage” to “GoToHomePage” with fromoutcome property =” HomePage”.blogspot.regToEdit} and click ok. Now right click the “FindRegistration” activity and select “Edit Bindings”. Step 13) set the control flow from the “CreateNewRegistration” to the “RegistrationPage”. Step 18) set the control flow from “RegistrationPage” to “GoToItemListPage” with from-outcome property =”ItemLitsPage”. From the property inspector under the common node. Step 11) Select the RegistrationPageVOOperations setCurrentRowWithKeyValue from the data control palette and drop it on the “FindRegistration” method activity.Step 6) Select the above created router activity. Connect RouteByMode to FindRegistration with from-outcome as “Edit”. Step 15) Drop a “Task Flow Return” activity on the page flow with name property = “CatalogPage” and id=” GoToCatalogPage” Step 16) Drop second task flow activity on the page flow with name property = “ItemListPage” and id=”GoToItemListPage”. Step 17) Drop yet another task flow activity on the bounded task flow with name property =”HomePage” and id=”GoToHomePage” Step 17) set the control flow from “RegistrationPage” to “GoToCatalogPage” with from-outcome property =”CatalogPage”. This from-outcome property is equivalent to the action property we have set for the Home command button in the registration page. Your bounded task flow should look like:- http://kohlivikram. and drop it on the cod editor. In the Edit Action bindings.

Step 8) Add a Panel Box layout from the component palette window in the structure window under MainPageRegion”. Step 10) Select the af:query region and set the ResultComponentID property under the Behavior node to “::resultTbl”.SearchPageRegistrationLinesVO” rule and set display attributes as “ProductCode”. Steps 9) Add the above created table in step 5 inside the above created panel box. shift all the attributes from available attributes to display attributes except “RegistrationID”.view.blogspot. Step 7) Select the newly created af:table and set the following properties:ID = resultTbl Width=900. Step 6) Click on the “Add Rule” icon and select “SearchPageRegistrationLinesVO”. And set the text property of the panel box to “Registration List”.SearchPageRegistrationVO”.”Qty” and “Uom”. Select “model. And click ok.Step 5) From the “Edit Tree Binding” for the “model.

This mode method is acting as a input parameter for the ‘Edit-Registration’ bounded task flow we created in step 4 of 3. Step 14) Insert another action listener with From= #{true} and To= #{RegistrationBean.com/ .mode}.Step 11) Convert the output text for registration number to link with text property =#{row.RegNum} Step 12) Inside the Action button bar add a command button with following property values:Text = New Registration Action =NewOrEdit Step 13) Right click your command button and select “Set Action Listener” as shown below:- In the “Insert Set Action Listener” set From = #{'New'} and To = #{requestScope. This action will put the value ‘New’ in the mode attribute.5 exercise.disableAddItemBtn} Insert yet another action listener with From= #{true} and To= #{RegistrationBean.blogspot.disableSearchCataBtn} Your final structure window for the home page should look like:- http://kohlivikram.

Item details page is used to create a new registration line in the existing reg Step 1) Create a new jspx page name “ItemDetailsPage” based on created page template.RegNum. Set the following property of newly created panel splitter SplitterPosition = 338 Inline style = width:620px. Step 7) Select “UnitPrice” in RegistrationPageVOItemDetailsPageVO from data control palette and drop it on the first facet as “ADF Output Text w/ Label” Step 8) Under the second facet of the panel splitter. we will define the application flow in ADF controller. We will create this page layout and after that in our last step in creation of this application. Step 3) Inside the header region.com/ . “Currency” and “Descr” in RegistrationPageVOItemDetailsPageVO from data control palette and drop it under above output text as ““ADF Input Text w/ Label”. add a panel header region. Step 5) Select “ProductCode” in RegistrationPageVOItemDetailsPageVO from data control palette and drop it on the first facet as “ADF Output Text w/ Label” Step 6) Select “Qty” in RegistrationPageVOItemDetailsPageVO from data control palette and drop it under above output text as ““ADF Input Text w/ Label”.And then set the text property = #{bindings. Step 9) Select OperationsCommit from the data control palette and drop it inside the ActionButtonBarRegion as adf button with Text = ‘Save’ and action =’ SaveRegLine’. Step 2) In the MainPageRegion. add a separator under the panel header. drop the “Uom”.blogspot. And add another command button inside the ActionButtonBarRegion with Text=’Cancel’ and Action=’ SaveRegLine’.inputValue}.7 Creating Item Details page So we are now at final page of our application.3.

data as well as navigate to the Registration page. Step 5) Select the “Control Flow Case” from control flow in component palette. Step 2) Select the HomePage. Step 6) Select the CatalogueCategoryPage. This NewOrEdit is the action property we set for the ‘NewRegistration’ command button. And define the out parameter ‘regToEdit’ with value= #{pageFlowScope. Now in both the command button add action listener with From= #{'Edit'} and To= #{requestScope. 3.mode} And your layout for the page Item details is ready.jspx from the application navigator window and drop it on the code editor. Step 3) Now select the bounded task flow we have created “Edit Registration” from Page Flows folder and drop it on the code editor. Step 4) Select the “Edit-Registration” and in the property inspector under the parameter node set the value=#{requestScope.blogspot. We have done this setting at the RegsitrationEO entity level.8 Define Application flow in ADF Controller Step 1) Open the ViewControllerWeb ContentPage Flow and open adfc-config in the code editor.mode} for ‘mode’ parameter and value=#{requestScope. Run your application and see if you can create a new registration.regToEdit} for the regToEdit parameter. drag & drop it from “HomePage” activity to “Edit-Registration” activity.regToEdit}. Registration Number fields are getting shown with default values. Check if the required indicator is appearing in the UI. http://kohlivikram. It will show an error on it as the parameters expected by the bounded page flow has not been set yet. Verify that the Creation date. but cancel will just navigate to registration page.jspx from the application navigator and drop it in the code editor. And set the fromoutcome property to “NewOrEdit”.com/ . Step 7) Select the “Control Flow Case” from control flow and drag & drop it from “Edit-Registration” activity to “CatalogeCategoryPage” activity with from-outcome to “CatalogPage”.

getItemDetailsPageVO(). if(regId!=null) { try { newGoodsLineRow. To display these details on the item details page we will set the required details in the blank row created in ItemDetailsPageVO in step 8.getUnitPrice(). } catch (SQLException e) { } } } http://kohlivikram. itemVO. CreateInsert operation insert a new blank row in the entity object. drag & drop it from ‘CatalogueCategoryPage’ to ‘CreateNewLine’ activity with from-outcome property= ‘CreateNewLine’.blogspot. String uom= itemRow.executeQuery().setUom(uom). Number unitPrice=itemRow.getManufacturer().setCurrentRowAtRangeIndex(0).xml in code editor with id=’ CreateNewLine’. it gets rendered with the details of the item selected in the catalogue category page.Let’s proceed now with updating page flow so that user can add lines in the registration. Add the following code in your application module Impl class:public void initilizeNewRegLines(String productCode.getCurrentRow(). Step 8) Select a method activity from the component palette and drop it on the adfcconfig. ItemDetailsVORowImpl newGoodsLineRow=(ItemDetailsVORowImpl)newItemLineVO.setWhereClause(clause). newGoodsLineRow.getCurrentRow(). String manufacturer = itemRow. ItemVORowImpl itemRow=(ItemVORowImpl)itemVO.setCurrency(currency). itemVO. Step 11) Now as the item details page gets rendered. if(unitPrice!=null) newGoodsLineRow. String currency= itemRow.getCurrency(). Step 9) Select the ‘Control Flow case’ from the component palette.String regId) { ViewObjectImpl itemVO=getItemListVO(). if(manufacturer!=null) newGoodsLineRow. ViewObjectImpl newItemLineVO=this.setRegistrationId(new Number(regId)).setUnitPrice(unitPrice). To achieve this we will write a custom method in application module Impl class which will set the required item details in the ItemDetailsPageVO. if(currency!=null) newGoodsLineRow.setProductCode(productCode). itemVO. Now select the RegistrationPageVOItemDetailsPageVOOperationsCreateInsert and drop it on the newly created method activity ‘CreateNewLine’. if(uom!=null) newGoodsLineRow.com/ .getUom(). String clause ="PRODUCT_CODE = '" + productCode + "'".setManufacturer(manufacturer).

blogspot. drag and drop it in the adfc-config. drag & drop it from ‘ExecuteRegLines’ to ‘Edit-Registration’ activity with from-outcome property= ‘Execute’.com/ . And from Item list page to item details page where we will add the quantity of the item and navigate back to the Registration page. Now run the application. Set the id of the activity to ExecuteRegLines. drag & drop it from ‘CreateNewLine’ to ‘initilizeNewRegLines’ activity with from-outcome property= ‘’CreateInsert’. Step 12) Select the initilizeNewRegLines from the data control palette and drop it on the adfc-config. Step 17) Delete the control flow case between the ItemDetailsPage and EditRegistration. Step 16) Select the RegistrationPageVO-->RegLinesRegPageVO-->Operations->Execute from the data control palette and drop it on the adf-config. Step 15) Define a control flow from ItemDetailsPage view activity to Edit-Registration task flow call activity with from-outcome= SaveRegLine. Step 19) Select the flow control from the component palette. Step 14) Select the ItemDetailsPage from the application navigator. And then add the new line by clicking the “Add Item” button on the registration page.xml in code editor.Add the above method in the application module client Interface. When you run your application and add the registration line in the registration. drag & drop it from ‘ItemDetailsPage’ to ‘ExecuteRegLines’ activity with from-outcome property= ‘SaveRegLine’. And then define a control flow from the “Edit-Registration” to “HomePage” with from-outcome= HomePage. registration lines region in the registration page will show the added line in the registration.xml file in code editor. And define the control flow activity from ‘initilizeNewRegLines’ to ‘ItemDetailsPage’ activity with from-outcome= initilizeNewRegLines. you should be able to create and save the registration. with home page. To achieve this . To achieve this we have to execute the iterator with which the registration lines table is associated. Run your application. follow the following steps:- http://kohlivikram. Another navigation case is to go to item list page from registration page and search the item. Step 18) Select the flow control from the component palette. In the “Edit Action Binding” under the parameter section specify values as Step 13) Select the flow control from the component palette. your added lines will not be shown in the registration lines table region in the registration page.xml in code editor.

next(). as we have the “Total USD Amount” and “Total PFI Amount” in the registration page which will show the total USD amount of the registration lines and total PFI(package.out.totalPfiAmt=0. currRow.0.out.regToEdit}" And finally. Step 21) Define control flow from 'Edit-Registration' to 'ItemLitsPage' with fromoutcome='ItemListPage'.com/ .setTotalPfiAmt(new Number(totalPfiAmt)). To achieve this open your home page.getCurrentRow().getAttribute("UsdAmount").println("totalPfiAmt="+totalPfiAmt + " totalUsdAmt= " + totalUsdAmt).pfiAmt=null.parseDouble(usdAmt). To achieve this we will add the method in the application module custom Java class which will iterator through the registration lines related to current registration with the help of view link. Now you will be able add a line in registration from the item list page.getEstimatedRowCount()!=0) { while (items.Step 20) Select the item list page from the application navigator and drop it on the adf-config. RegistrationVORowImpl currRow= (RegistrationVORowImpl)vo. Now under the registration number command link add the following two action listener under that as :1) from="#{'Edit'}" to="#{requestScope. if(items. if(usdAmt!=null) totalUsdAmt = totalUsdAmt + Double.getAttribute("UsdPfiAmount").getRegistrationLinesVO(). try { currRow.0.toString().mode}"/> 2) from="#{row.hasNext()) { Row curItem = items.println("USD Amount= " + usdAmt + " .RegistrationId}" to="#{requestScope.xml in the code editor. fright and insurance) amount of the registration lines added in the registration. usdAmt=curItem. } catch (SQLException e) { } http://kohlivikram.setTotalUsdAmt(new Number(totalUsdAmt)). System. RowSet items = (RowSet)currRow.toString(). pfi Amt=" + pfiAmt). And from the 'ItemListPage' to the 'CreateNewLine' method activity with from-outcome='CreateNewLine'. Add following code in the application module Impl class:- public void updateRegLinesAmt() { ViewObjectImpl vo = getRegistrationPageVO().blogspot. double totalUsdAmt=0. if(pfiAmt!=null) totalPfiAmt = totalPfiAmt + Double. pfiAmt=curItem. } System.parseDouble(pfiAmt). Also we also have to open the exiting registration from the Home page. String usdAmt=null.

Now open your Edit Registration page flow.//commit(). Test it and let me know how your feedback on this and and error in the documentation.com/ .blogspot. Happy Learning. http://kohlivikram. I will keep working on the application and will improve it further and update the document. select the updateRegLinesAmt from the data control palette and drop it in the code editor window in the 'Edit-Registration' page flow in between the 'FindRegistration' and RegistrationPage activity as shown below:- Procurement application is ready. Please let me know any errors or suggestions to improve the document. } } Expose the above method in the application module client.
