Better UI -Show jQuery notification message (for error, warning, info) in Oracle ADF

Hello all,
Another post about using jQuery with ADF Faces , this post is about showing a notification message using jQuery in your ADF Application
Normally we use default FacesMesage to show error, warning and info messages in ADF

here i am using jQuery growl library , you can download files from Growl : jQuery Informative Messages Plugin

Let's see how to integrate this library with ADF Faces, you will get two files from above link
one is JavaScript file (jQuery script) and other one is CSS file (style-sheet for notification UI)

Add both files to viewController project under Web Content

now add reference of both files (JS and CSS) in page and also jQuery library to execute growl script

 <af:resource source="" type="javascript"/>
            <af:resource source="js/jquery.growl.js" type="javascript"/>
            <af:resource source="style/jquery.growl.css" type="css"/>

Now i have added 3 buttons on page to show different messages on button click and created a managed bean to define action for each button
On button click i have called jQuery script to invoke notification message
see managed bean code-

import javax.faces.context.FacesContext;
import javax.faces.event.ActionEvent;

import org.apache.myfaces.trinidad.render.ExtendedRenderKitService;
import org.apache.myfaces.trinidad.util.Service;

public class ShowJqNotification {
    public ShowJqNotification() {

    /**Helper method to execute javascript
     * @param script
    public void calljqHelper(String script) {
        FacesContext context = FacesContext.getCurrentInstance();
        ExtendedRenderKitService erks = Service.getService(context.getRenderKit(), ExtendedRenderKitService.class);
        erks.addScript(context, script);
    //Change your message as per requirement 
    /**Method to invoke Error Message
     * @param actionEvent
    public void showErrMessageAction(ActionEvent actionEvent) {
        calljqHelper("$.growl.error({ message: \"Hi this is error message!\" });");


    /**Method to invoke Warnign Message
     * @param actionEvent
    public void showWarningMessageAction(ActionEvent actionEvent) {
        calljqHelper("$.growl.warning({ message: \"Hi this is Warning!\" });");

    /**Method to invoke Info Message
     * @param actionEvent
    public void showNoticeMessageAction(ActionEvent actionEvent) {
        calljqHelper("$.growl.notice({ message: \"Hi this is Notice!\" });");


All done, now run application and check - how it looks :)

this is default look of script , you can customize it , just change some parameters in both JS and CSS files
I have changed some parameters in both files and see how it looks now

Cheers, Happy Learning :)

  1. Dear, I like your blog very much, I can get many useful information. Hope that we can communicate with each other. By the way, have you ever used resize server 2003 boot partition ? Unfortunately I lost my partition. I do not know how to do.
