11G : ADF Life Cycle

ADF Lifecycle has Nine phases as follows:

        Fig: ADF Lifecycle

1> Initialize Context: In this phase value of associated request, binding container and lifecycle are set. Binding Container will get Initialized.
2> Prepare Model: In this phase model is prepared and initialized. In this phase page parameters are set and methods in the executable section of the page definition of the ADF page are executed. Page Parameter, Taskflow parameter & the Iterator which is having PrepareRender as refresh condition will get Initalized.

3> Apply Input Values: This phase handles the request parameters. These may come by adding the request parameters in the URL or as a result of HTML form post action. A list of events is build using these request parameters. These are actually mapped to the bindings in the pageDef. This phase resolves the list of request parameters bind to attributes in the page def. This results into a list of updatedValues which is used in Update Model phase.

4> Validate Input Values: This phase validates the list of values built in the Apply input values field with model.

5> Update Model: After validation of input values data model is updated with the list of values created in apply input values phase.

6> Validate Model Updates: Updates in the previous phase are then validated by calling the associated lifecycle's binding container .

7> Process Component Updates: This phase handles any events in the list built during the apply input values phase. Named events as well as all the events tied to the databindings created in the pagdef are handled in this phase.

8> Metadata Commit: This phase commits the runtime metadata changes to the model. This phase is always executed before prepare render phase.

9> Prepare Render: This is the final phase where page is sent for rendering. prepareRender event is sent to all the registered listeners. This notification signals bindings to prepare or process the data for rendering. Binding container is also refreshed. This helps in updating any changes that happened during validation phases.

11G : Scopes

ADF supports all the usual scope options as in JSF like none, requestScope, session scope and application scope. Along with these scoping options ADF supports one additional highly useful scope option that is, pageFlowScope. Let's talk about these options one by one in brief:
Let's take an usecase to understand it better. Say, there is a a page 'pageA' in your application having a selectOneChoice and a submit button. On clicking the submit button it navigates you to 'pageB'. There is a bean method assoicated with the selectOneChoiceList's value change listener. this method is simply storing the selected value of the list to a bean property.

Fig: Scopes in ADF

1. none: So, with none scope, on changing the the value in the list, the associated bean will be instantiated and the associaed listner method will be called. As soon as the control returns from the bean method the bean will be destroyed. In other words, you cannot access the bean property value after that even on the same page.

2. requestScope: if the bean scope is requestScope then the value stored in the bean property will be accessible even on the pageB. you can simply access it at #{requestScope.yourBean.yourPropertyName}. This bean will be destroyed as soon as you submit another request by say clicking back button to navigate to pageA or by clicking a submit button to do some other action which generates another request to the server.

3. pageFlowScope: This scope is an introduction of ADF. In ADF you can group some pages (called activity) in a logical unit called TaskFlow (more specifically a bounded task flow in this case). Say you have two more pages pageC and pageD and you can navigate from pageA to pageB to pageC to pageD using some next button on each page. Now, suppose you have created a bounded task flow using pageA, pageB and pageC. So, if your bean is of pageFlowScope then after selecting a value in list at pageA if you navigate till pageC, you can still access the bean's property. It persists within the taskflow boundries. But, if you navigate to pageD then the bean will be destriyed. pageFlowScope is kinda more broader than requestScope and smaller than a session scope. For most of the scenarios in ADF you create a bounded task flow to implement a business use case. So, in way pageFlowScope makes more sense than a session scope. Ofcourse, session will be required in cases where you need to persis the values out of a taskflow boundry. You can access it using an EL expression like #{pageFlowScope.YourBean.yourPropertyName}.

4. sessionScope: Continuing with the same example, the bean once instantiated will persist till the entire user session. This session usually persists till a user is logged in. Usually, web servers are configured for a session time out property which makes the session invalid after the specified period of time. So, the bean's property can be access anywhere for that session. Usually, in real life scenarios information related to user like its profile are set in to the sessions.

5. applicationScope: As the name suggests this scope persists as long as the application is running. Ususally, application scope parameters are initialized at the time of application start-up (web server start). Generally, some all time needed resources are initialized using applicationScope which are required all the time and are independent of any specific role or responsibility.

6.View Scope: It Stores objects uaed by a Single Page and retains the objects as long as the user continues to interect with the page, and then automaticaly releases them when the user leaves the page.

7. PageFlow Scope : It makes it easier to pass values from one page to another within a taskflow. This Scopes means that the bean is available for a set of pages in the current taskflow

8. BackingBean Scopes:  It is uased for managed beans for page fragements and declarative components only

10G : How To Create Search and Results on the Same Page

Step-1 : To create a page that has both a search form and results table on the same page, you follow the procedures for when they are on separate pages, except you must create a separate iterator for the results table.

Step-2 : To create a search form and results table on the same page:

Step-3 :From the Data Control Palette, drag a collection and from the context menu, select Forms > ADF Search Form.For example, if you want the query to execute over all service requests, you would drag the ServiceRequests collection.

Step-4 : Drag the same collection, but this time drop it as any type of table.

Step-5 : Open the associated page definition file.

Step-6 : In the Structure Pane, right-click on the Executables node and choose Insert inside
executables > invokeAction.

Step-7 : In the Insert invokeAction dialog, enter an ID for the action, such as AlwaysFind. From the Binds drop-down list, select Find. Do NOT click OK or close the dialog.

Step-8 : In the Insert invokeAction dialog, select the Advanced Properties tab.

Step-9 : For RefreshCondition, enter the following EL expression, which tells the application to invoke this action whenever the page is not in Find mode. Replace with the name of the iterator:${bindings..findMode == false}Note:The invokeAction must appear before the iterator, so that it is executed first.

Step-10 : In the Structure Pane, right-click on the Executables node and choose Insert inside executables > iterator.

Step-11 : Select the same collection used for the search form, and in the Iterator ID field enter a more meaningful name, such as ResultsIterator and click OK.

Step-12 : In the Structure Pane, expand the bindings node, right-click on the binding for the results table, and choose Properties.

Step-13 : In the Table Binding Editor dialog, make sure the correct collection is selected in the Data Collection column.

Step-14 : Select the newly created iterator from the Iterator drop-down list, ensure that all correct attributes are in the Display Attributes column, and click OK.

Step-15 : In the JSF page, delete the Find button.

Step-16 : Doing this only deletes the component from the JSF page। The binding still exists in the page definition file.
