ADF : Dynamic View Object

Today I want to write about dynamic view object which allow me to change its data source (SQL query) and attributes at run time.

I will use oracle.jbo.ApplicationModule :: createViewObjectFromQueryStmt method to do this issue.

I will present how to do this step by step

Create View Object and Application Module
1- Right click on Model project and choose New

2- Choose from left pane “ADF Business Component” , then from list choose “View Object” and click “OK” button

3- Enter “DynamicVO” in “Name” and choose “Sql Query” radio button and click “Next” button.

4- Write in Select field “select * from dual” and click “Next” button until reach Window “Step 8 of 9”

5- Check “Add to Application Module” check box and click “Finish” button.

Implement Changes in Application Module

1- Open application module “AppModule”, then open Java tab and check “Generate Application Module Class AppModuleImpl” check box

2- Open AppModuleImpl.java Class and Add the below method for dynamic view object

   public void changeDynamicVoQuery(String sqlStatement) {  
     ViewObject dynamicVO = this.findViewObject("DynamicVO1");  
     dynamicVO = this.createViewObjectFromQueryStmt("DynamicVO1", sqlStatement);  

3- Open “AppModule” then open Java tab and Add changeDynamicVoQuery method to Client Interface

Test Business Component
1- Right click on AppModue in Application navigator and choose Run from drop down list.

2- Right click on AppModule in left pane and choose Show from drop down lsit

Write “Select * from Emp” in sqlStatement parameter
Click on Execute button, The result will be Success .

3- Click double click on DynamicVO1 in left pane, it will display the data of DynamicVO and display data which I entered “Select * from Emp” before not “Select * from dual” that was used in design time of view object.

To use dynamic view objects in ADF Faces, you should use ADF Dynamic Table or ADF Dynamic Form.
