ADF-BPM Integration: Custom Worklist.

A custom worklist is something commonly required from customers that use both ADF and BPM.
There are some user tasks that must go through a BPM process and other tasks that are performed directly.
So usually in the ADF application a worklist to display the BPM Tasks is required.

Oracle fusion gives many options to approach this and this can cause confusion.

Direction 1
My first approach some years ago was to use the exposed task flows of the BPM worklist:

ADF Table Click to Edit functionality

I haven't been posting lately, i feel sorry for that.

This is mostly because i am up to my head with new projects, BPM, SOA, BI and other fusion middleware technologies. Also because:

Focus is Lost in IE8 when value is changed in Input List of values

New bug in Jdeveloper 11.1.1.6 version. It was not reproduced in 11.1.1.4.
It also happen only in Internet Explorer 8, not in 9 and not in Firefox.
When a value is selected or typed in an Input List Of values then the focus (cursor) goes to the internet explorer tab. This causes frustration to user's and delay in data entry.

Input List Of Values, autosuggest behavior

By default when you type a value in an input list of values the query is executed always with the LIKE operator.

This is very annoying for users that do heads-down data entry.
Also if the field is a number executed query force full table scan causing performance issues.

We just need the option to disable auto-suggest behavior (on design time) so that the query is executed with '=' operator and the LOV does not open when the value entered is valid.

ADF Code Corner OTN Harvest and ADF EMG project at java.net

I would like to thank Frank Nimphius for asking and publishing my point of view for various ADF matters into OTN Harvest Summary of March 2012.
You can find this and other valuable material in Oracle ADF Code Corner.

SDO web service from business components validations.

This issue was found by my colleague and friend Gabriel Sideras that was assigned the task to create web services from our business components.
He noticed that sometimes the entity validations was not executed from the web service. This happens when the entity primary key has checked the attribute refresh after insert.
This is reproduced at the attached test case that a simple createDepartment web service is created with HR department entity and view.
