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.

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

Now similarly create the view criteria ItemListPageVO with following criteria items.com/ .Step 8) Click OK to finish creating the view criteria.blogspot. named “ItemListPageVOCriteria” on http://kohlivikram.

5 List of Values used in Application There are various LOV components which are used in different pages in our application.2. Steps to set the “Requested By” field in registration page as LOV http://kohlivikram. 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. In this learning application.com/ .blogspot. → And in the Item list page for the Catalog and Category fields in the search region.

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

In “UI Hints” select appropriate attributes to be displayed in LOV.blogspot. select and shift “Full Name” from “Available” to “Selected” list. 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”.com/ .Step 5) In the “List of values” select “EmployeeId” from “List Attributes”. Refer following figure to achieve this http://kohlivikram. And the click OK. Step 6) In the “UI Hints” tab.

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

we need to create the view link between following view objects.6 View Links used in the application View links defines the relationship between the ADF view objects. We need view links to create the master detail components in the user interface.blogspot. In our application.

Step 2) In Step 1 of 5 . These service methods allows you to dynamically add/remove new view objects to data model at run time and to perform operations on the view cache result set. Following steps will help you to create this:Step 1) Select the model node.view. And then click on the “Add”. commit. set the package to “model. create other view links. And click on next. From the “Available View Object” pane select the following view objects under “mode.com/ .view” and shift it to the ”Data Model” pane.Step 1) Select the “model.The application module data model contains view object and view link instance. A view object instance manages a single cache of retrieved data. And select “RegistrationId” in “SearchPageRegistrationLinesVO” under “Select destination Attribute”. select “RegistrationId” in “SearchPageRegistrationVO” under “select source Attribute” . it maintains a database connection. package name should be 'model' and name should be 'MyLearningAM'. A transaction object maintains pointers to entity and view caches. And click next”. and rollback operations. → let developer define the service methods which are defined in the application module class. View Object to be selected under “Available View “New Instance Name” to be specified. And view link instance provides a master-detail relationship between view object instances. Click “OK” and then click finish. right click and select “New Application Module”. Step 3) In step 2 of 5. we will create the application module and will add the view objects to the application module.7 Application module Application module are business components that → provide data required by application to complete the specific task . In completing the business service layer objects.view” node under the “Model-->Application Sources” sources. Objects” CatalogVO CategoryVO via CataloeCategoryVL CatalogPageVO CatalogCategoryVO ItemListPageVO CatalogVO CategoryList CatalogeCategoryItemVO CatalogListVO CategoryListVO http://kohlivikram.blogspot. we will add the view objects and view links in the data model. In a similar fashion.

your “Data Model” should look like this:- http://kohlivikram.com/ .EmployeeVO EmployeesListVO ItemListPageVO ItemVO ItemListPageVO ItemListVO RegistrationPageVO RegistrationLinesVO via RegistrationPageVL RegistrationPageVO RegLinesRegPageVO ItemDetailsVO via ItemDetailsVL ItemDetailsPageVO SearchPageRegistrationVO SearchPageRegistrationLinesVO via HomePageVL SearchPageRegistrationVO SearchPageRegistrationLinesVO After completing this.blogspot.

http://kohlivikram.blogspot.com/ .

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

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

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

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

panelSplitter is the only other component that supports geometry management.geometry management component. This means that when user resizes the browser. http://kohlivikram.com/ .blogspot. Along with Panel Stretch layout. Panel Stretch layout components will resize it self accordingly along with its child components.

http://kohlivikram.blogspot.com/ .

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

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

Step 5) now select the “Panel Collection” from the layout component palette and drop it on the “MainPageRegion”. Right click and select convert from the context menu. select Link from list of components and click ok.1 Creating the Master – Inline detail table to show Catalog-Categories Step 1) Select the “ViewController”.CatalogVO and from the Available attributes. Step 2) In the Categories tree. Now select the af:panelCollection from the structure window and set the ID property to PanelCollectionRN and inline style property under style from property inspector equal to “width:700px. the item table(will be creating in next step) gets refreshed with the items under this category.ProductCode} and action = ‘CreateNewLine’.blogspot. Step 9) Select the Master table from the structure window and set the id properties = CatalogTbl. From the context menu select “Tables->ADF Master Table. Expand the CategoryTbl and set following properties of “CategoryName” column width = 200 . And set the id of the link to CategoryNameLK.view.categories table as master table and inline detail table and an items table under the master detail table showing item under selected category.com/ . 3. We did this because on category name click. Also select the af:document nod ein starcture window and set pageTitle=” Catalogue Category Page”. Step 4) Select the af:pageTemplate from structure window and set pageTitle=” Catalogue Category Page”. Step 9) Expand the detail facet under master table and set the id property = CategoryTbl and width=650px. Step 3) Give the file name as “CatalogeCategoryPage” and select “MyPageTemplate” from the Use Page template drop down. and select the CatalogPageVO and drop it on the af:panelCollection. Expand the master table.2.view. Step 7) In the “Edit Tree Binding window” select the model.

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}

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

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

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

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

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

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

we will define the application flow in ADF controller.inputValue}. drop the “Uom”. 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. Step 4) Add a panel splitter component under the separator component. Set the following property of newly created panel splitter SplitterPosition = 338 Inline style = width:620px. Step 2) In the MainPageRegion. We will create this page layout and after that in our last step in creation of this application. 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 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. And add another command button inside the ActionButtonBarRegion with Text=’Cancel’ and Action=’ SaveRegLine’.And then set the text property = #{bindings. add a panel header region.3. 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.blogspot. So the Save button will commit the http://kohlivikram.com/ . “Currency” and “Descr” in RegistrationPageVOItemDetailsPageVO from data control palette and drop it under above output text as ““ADF Input Text w/ Label”.7 Creating Item Details page So we are now at final page of our application. add a separator under the panel header.

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

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

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

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

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. I will keep working on the application and will improve it further and update the document. } } Expose the above method in the application module client.com/ . http://kohlivikram.
