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 :

Classes invloved :

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

af:table definition :

TableBean.tableRowDiscloseListener() :

    public void tableRowDiscloseListener(RowDisclosureEvent rowDisclosureEvent) {
        RowKeySet disclosedSet = rowDisclosureEvent.getAddedSet();
        Iterator itr = disclosedSet.iterator();
        while(itr.hasNext()) {
            int rowKey = (Integer);
            POJO disclosedObject = (POJO) getTable().getRowData(rowKey);
            this.disclosedTableRows = disclosedObject.getAddresses();

When it runs :

Secure your Node/Express REST APIs using Passport JS

Recently I have been involved in various discussions on how to make the REST APIs as secure as SOAP.
First of all, let me start with a very basic statement, about security, it doesn't depend on your Webservice type, be it REST or SOAP, your design decisions depicts whether they can be made secure or not.
In this example blog, I will use "Micro CRUD services for Oracle Database Cloud" APIs and implement (read attach) Passport's "local" authentication strategy, to make them secure.

What is Passport JS? (from Documentation)

Passport is authentication middleware for Node. It is designed to serve a singular purpose: authenticate requests. When writing modules, encapsulation is a virtue, so Passport delegates all other functionality to the application. This separation of concerns keeps code clean and maintainable, and makes Passport extremely easy to integrate into an application.

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.

ADF Utility : Find UIComponent from Managed Bean

Many a times, it is required to find an UIComponent from ADF managed bean, to do something with it, for example : change the value of an af:outputText, change readOnly property of an af:inputText etc.

private UIComponent getUIComponent(String id) { 

        FacesContext facesCtx = FacesContext.getCurrentInstance(); 
        return findComponent(facesCtx.getViewRoot(), id);

    private UIComponent findComponent(UIComponent base, String id) {

        if (id.equals(base.getId())) {
            return base;

        UIComponent children = null;
        UIComponent result = null;
        Iterator childrens = base.getFacetsAndChildren();
        while (childrens.hasNext() && (result == null)) {
            children = (UIComponent);
            if (id.equals(children.getId())) {
                result = children;
            result = findComponent(children, id);
            if (result != null) {
