OAF : - Oracle Applications Framework Version : - 9.0.

3 NOTE: - For OAF install Jdeveloper (developed by Java & J2ee for E-Business Suite). Architecture of OAF: OAF follows the MVC (Model View Controller) Architecture. Model (BC4J Components) View (User Interface xml) Controller (Developed by Java Classes) What are BC4J Components? BC4J Components are as follows AM: Application Module VO: View Object EO: Entity Object VL: View Links

What is Onion Structure?


The above structure is the Onion Structure; in which AM (Application Module) interact with the VO (View Object) and VO interacts with EO (Entity Object) and EO interacts with DB (Data Base). NOTE: • EO can only interact with the Data Base. • A page can have only one AM and AM can have number of VO and EO’s. • To display simple page no need of VO and EO, only AM is enough.

Steps to Install OAF? 1. Download the patch from Oracle metalink.


2. Create one folder (Jdeveloper) in your local system. 3. Extract the above patch. 4. Create environment variable My computer  Properties  Advanced  Environment Variable  New Variable Name Variable Value : JDEV_USER_HOME : D:\Jdeveloper\jdevhome\jdev. copy the Jdevw icon and past it in desktop.

5. Go to D:\Jdeveloper\jdevbin\jdev\bin How to create simple page in OAF?

Here we can find two methods in controller 1) Process Request. 2) Process Form Request. What is Process Request and Process Form Request? Process Request: - This method is used to display any message while page is loading the you will write code in the Process Request. It has two parameters called pageContext and webBean. Process Form Data: - it works internally which is used to handle the internal validation against BC4J components. Process Form Request: - This method is used to display any message after taking any action on the page then you will write code in Process Form Request. It has two parameters called pageContext and webBean. Note: -To display any information we have to import the following interface import oracle.apps.fnd.framework.OAException; Write the following highlighted code in Processes from request.

Write this code in Processes Form Request

Then run the page ex: - WelcomePG Enter any text in the message input (ex:- OAF) and Click on Submit.
