Shuttle Component in Oracle ADF (Allow Multiple Selection), Get Selected values from Shuttle Component

Hello All

Hope you all are doing well :) 

Shuttle component supports multiple selections at Runtime, when we need to select multiple records at runtime then we can use Shuttle Component.

Now we see how to use shuttle component (af:selectManyShuttle) in Oracle ADF

Shuttle Component in Oracle ADF

Follow these steps-

  • Prepare model for Employees table of HR Schema(Create EO,VO and AM)
  • Now drag Employees ViewObject from DataControl to page and select multiple selection-->ADF Select Many Shuttle-
Drop ViewObject as ADF Select Many Shuttle

  • Now edit binding for this Shuttle Component, choose attribute that you want to show and also base attribute-
    Edit Shuttle binding and select base and display attribute

  • Now it will look like this, drag a button to get selected attribute of this shuttle component
    Now write code on button's actionEvent to get selected value from Shuttle-

    import oracle.adf.model.BindingContext;
    import oracle.binding.BindingContainer;
        /*****Generic Method to get BindingContainer of current page, fragment or region**/
        public BindingContainer getBindingsCont() {
            return BindingContext.getCurrent().getCurrentBindingsEntry();

     public void getSelectedValue(ActionEvent actionEvent) {
          //Get Binding Continer of Page
            BindingContainer bc = this.getBindingsCont();
         //Get shuttle binding from pagedef
            JUCtrlListBinding listBindings = (JUCtrlListBinding)bc.get("Employees1");
        //Get Selected Values
            Object str[] = listBindings.getSelectedValues();
        //Iterate over selected values
            for (int i = 0; i < str.length; i++) {

    When you run this it should look like this and your Shuttle is ready
    Get selected value of shuttle component ADF


  1. can i put more than one value in the selected value empid&deptid

    1. No you can not, you can get other values using base value of component

  2. Hi Ashish
    the result of System.out.println(str[i]); got first name only
    i want to obtain first name and last name

    1. You can get other values by using base value to filter viewObject

  3. guys my view object has parameter which is sent in the login page, just before the shuttle page appears but the shuttle is always empty unless i remove the query parameters and get a fixed query the shuttle works.....
    please help me

    1. Check that bind variables values is setting properly , Check ViewObject rowcount
