While working on the customer side during last week, we have discussed a use case where user works with read-only tables and performs data editing through inline popup. In ADF 11g you can use clickToEdit editing mode for a table component in order to improve rendering performance. With this mode table will be rendered as read-only, but user will be able to edit rows by double clicking on current row. However this case was not suitable for the client, they wanted to edit and insert new rows in inline popup, mainly because there will be additional editable columns. We have tried to implement this requirement in JDeveloper/ADF 11g R1, using af:popup component, but it was not working for insert mode. Same week we got new Oracle JDeveloper release - JDeveloper 11g R1 PS1, and new functionality that allows to open ADF Task Flows as inline popups (read Frank Nimphius blog post - JDeveloper 11g R1 PS1 New Feature: Launching DHTML popup dialogs using the external dialog framework). In this blog post I will describe how you can enable CRUD operations in table component using ADF Faces external dialog framework.
