Managing Savepoints with ADF BC

java-logo

While working with ADF BC we usually rely on the framework for performing DML operations in the database. The framework correctly makes all necessary updates in the database during the DBTransaction commit cycle.

ADF: Popup, Dialog and Input Components

java-interview-questions-answers

In this post I would like to focus on a very common use case when we have af:popup containing af:dialog with input components inside. There are a couple of pitfalls that we need to watch out for when implementing this use case. Let’s consider a simple example:             <af:popup id="p1" contentDelivery="lazyUncached">             <af:dialog id="d2" ...

Smart Auto-PPR Change Event Policy

java-interview-questions-answers

There is a common belief among ADF developers that setting the iterator binding change event policy to ppr  is not a good thing in terms of performance because this policy forces the framework to refresh all attribute bindings that are bound to this iterator on each request.
