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.

I am using ADF business components previously knows as BC4J to build our business services layer. expand the Connections and Database nodes in the Application Resources panel to see the database objects. 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. Chapter 2 Creating Business Service Layer Objects :- In this learning application. 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.business rules and persistence behavior for database tables used in your application. Entity Objects required in application :. http://kohlivikram. Step 2) In the “New Gallery” window under “Business Tier” select “ADF Business Components”.An entity object is a business components maps to a single object in the data source. For more conceptual knowledge on entity objects www. Step 3) Select “Entity Object” from Items and click OK.com/technology/documentation/jdev/adf_guidelines_manual. ADF Business Components in Depth.pdf and read Chapter 3.• In the Application Navigator. It includes data. Business services components acts as a communication channel between between an MVC application and a data source (usually a database). → in REGISTRATION_LINES table through item details page where user add/edit quantity. 21.blogspot.

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

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

And then click on “OK”. In the Operator select “Greater Than” and in the “Enter Literal Value” enter 5.entity and select the “Attributes”.com/ . So this is how you can put up validations at the entity object level. Chapter 3 Working on the Controller and UI. select the Rule Type as “Compare”. http://kohlivikram.blogspot. Step 2) Select the Qty from the Attribute list and click on the “Add validation Rule” from the Validation Rules. 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. Step 3) In the “Add Validation Rules for: Qty” .

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

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

http://kohlivikram.com/ .blogspot.

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

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

Inline Detail Table”. And partial submit (under Behavior) property in property inspector to true. Step 3) Give the file name as “CatalogeCategoryPage” and select “MyPageTemplate” from the Use Page template drop down.ID = CategoryNameCol And select “Descrr” Column and set its width to 400. And shift back the CategoryId to the Available Attributes. From the convert Ouput Text. 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. Step 2) In the Categories tree.com/ . Right click and select convert from the context menu.2. and select “go to page definition”. From the context menu select “Tables->ADF 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}

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.This finishes the layout of the Registration page. ADF task flow defines the control flow in the application. 3. executing http://kohlivikram.com/ .blogspot. We will now work with controller to define the flow of the system. The nodes in the application are called activities representing a logical operation such as displaying a UI page.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

http://kohlivikram. I will keep working on the application and will improve it further and update the document. Now open your Edit Registration page flow. 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.com/ . Test it and let me know how your feedback on this and and error in the documentation. Please let me know any errors or suggestions to improve the document.
