Dynamic Tabs Shell with PanelDrawer

While working for one of the customers in Netherlands I had to create a page template where they wanted to  maximize the page content area. So I kind of mixed the Oracle Dynamic Tabs Shell and Tablet first layout to come up with "Dynamic Tabs Shell with Panel Drawer".

Which looks, something like this :






This layout has all  features and behavior like Oracle Dynamic Tabs Shell, only the menu area is in a PanelDrawer. The menu area and the main content area are in a PanelGridLayout.

Users can still customize the global area, logo, branding title etc. features as usual, extra feature added is an attribute :
"menuShortDesc" : the mouse over text for menu item. This has a default value "Menu".

This template can be build and included as a ADF Library JAR in your project.
Below is the link to the Github repository, you can also find a sample application which is using this template.

Chatbots and Oracle Cloud Services

Thanks to Oracle A-Team, I had a chance to work with Chatbots.
3 pure NodeJS applications, on couple of Oracle Cloud platforms and Facebook messenger, and my chatbot was running.

Let me explain, the architecture a bit. To start with, following is the simple representation of how it works.

Exception Handling in ADF

This blog will give you an overview on how you can successfully deal with unhandled Runtime exceptions in an ADF application.

This will give you an idea of:
How to catch the unhandled exceptions.Write a separate log file with stacktrace and thread dumps.Redirect the user to an static error page
#1. Catch unhandled exceptions : 

Create a class "MyExceptionHandler" which extends : oracle.adf.view.rich.context.ExceptionHandler. Override handleException() method.

public void handleException(FacesContext facesContext, Throwable throwable, PhaseId phaseId) throws Throwable {
        // this method is going to create a separate file with stacktrace and thread dumps
        writeException(throwable);
        // redirect to error page
        redirectToErrorPage(facesContext);
    }

 Create a folder "services" inside : ViewController\src\META-INF and then create a file named "oracle.adf.view.rich.context.ExceptionHandler".
In the file, add the absolute name of your custom e…

Bean Based ADF Table with List View in detailStamp facet

One of our projects, we had to display a "tree type" table with different datamodel for children. To solve this, I choose a normal af:table with a detailStamp facet with a List view inside it.
But pretty soon, I ran into an issue of correctly identifying the "disclosed" rows. Since my table's datasource is a bean, not ADF managed datacontrol.

So I solved it using a discloseListener on the af:table.

Full Application is on GitHub : https://github.com/sohamda/Row-Disclose-Example/


Classes invloved :

1. POJO.java : dataProvider class for af:table
2. SubPOJO.java : dataProvider for the list view inside detailStamp of the table.
3. TableBean.java : provides the methods for populating af:table and af:listView. Also has a discloseListener method to correctly populate the listView datasource.
