Business Scenario:
I have developed this sample application to learn Oracle ADF 11g.And in this documented you will find the steps for developing this complete sample application. 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.

And later one is not suitable.com/ .blogspot. we will put the validation that in the RegistrationLinesEO.8 Validations In the Item Details page. we have a validation that quantity should be greater then five. As Item Details page will be based on the ItemDetailsPageVO which in turn based on the RegistrationLinesEO. as later on if view technology need to be changed . 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. So http://kohlivikram. 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. This can be achieved by putting up this validation at entity level.2. Because in first case.

In the Operator select “Greater Than” and in the “Enter Literal Value” enter 5.com/ . Step 2) Select the Qty from the Attribute list and click on the “Add validation Rule” from the Validation Rules. So this is how you can put up validations at the entity object level.entity and select the “Attributes”. select the Rule Type as “Compare”.

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}

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

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

Step 11) Select the RegistrationPageVOOperations setCurrentRowWithKeyValue from the data control palette and drop it on the “FindRegistration” method activity. In the Edit Action bindings. and drop it on the cod editor.blogspot. Step 14) Again set the control flow from the “FindRegistration” to the “RegistrationPage”. Step 9) Select a control flow case from component palette and drag it from RouteByMode to CreateNewRegistration.regToEdit} and click ok. Step 19) set the control flow from “RegistrationPage” to “GoToHomePage” with fromoutcome property =” HomePage”. 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”. Connect RouteByMode to FindRegistration with from-outcome as “Edit”. Step 8) Now select the RegistrationPageVOOperationsCreateInsert from the data control palette and drop it on the CreateNewRegistration method activity. And set the from-outcome to “Create” Step 10) Create another method activity with ID as “FindRegitration” .jspx from the application navigator window. Now right click the “FindRegistration” activity and select “Edit Bindings”. From the property inspector under the common node. 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.com/ .Step 6) Select the above created router activity. specify two cases as below:- Step 7) Select the Method call activity from the component palette and drop it on the code editor. Step 12) Select the RegistrationPage. 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”. Set the ID of the new method activity as “CreateNewRegistration”. Step 13) set the control flow from the “CreateNewRegistration” to the “RegistrationPage”. set the parameter value=#{pageFlowScope. Step 18) set the control flow from “RegistrationPage” to “GoToItemListPage” with from-outcome property =”ItemLitsPage”.

Step 2) Select SearchPageRegistrationVONamed Criteria SearchPageRegistrationVOCriteria and drop it on the MainPageRegion in structure window.3. And select QueryADF Query panel. http://kohlivikram.6 Creating Home page Step 1) Create your home page with name “HomePage” based on the created ADF template we created.com/ .blogspot.

Step 3) Expand the af:PanelGroupLayout and select af:panelHeader.com/ . http://kohlivikram. Step 4) Now select the SearchPageRegistrationVO and drop it on the MainPageRegion and select the TablesADF Master Table.Inline Detail Table option.blogspot.

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

blogspot. Step 14) Insert another action listener with From= #{true} and To= #{RegistrationBean.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.mode}. This mode method is acting as a input parameter for the ‘Edit-Registration’ bounded task flow we created in step 4 of 3.Step 11) Convert the output text for registration number to link with text property =#{row.5 exercise.com/ . This action will put the value ‘New’ in the mode attribute.disableAddItemBtn} Insert yet another action listener with From= #{true} and To= #{RegistrationBean.disableSearchCataBtn} Your final structure window for the home page should look like:- http://kohlivikram.

So the Save button will commit the http://kohlivikram.com/ .inputValue}. we will define the application flow in ADF controller. drop the “Uom”. We will create this page layout and after that in our last step in creation of this application. 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. 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. 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”. Step 3) Inside the header region.3. “Currency” and “Descr” in RegistrationPageVOItemDetailsPageVO from data control palette and drop it under above output text as ““ADF Input Text w/ Label”. Step 2) In the MainPageRegion.blogspot. And add another command button inside the ActionButtonBarRegion with Text=’Cancel’ and Action=’ SaveRegLine’. 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 4) Add a panel splitter component under the separator component.7 Creating Item Details page So we are now at final page of our application. add a separator under the panel header. add a panel header region.And then set the text property = #{bindings.

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

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

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

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