ADF Basics: Call PL/SQL Stored function in ADF Application

This post is about calling stored function in ADF Application , a very basic requirement. Many times we need to call a PL/SQL function in ADF app for any specific requirement.
In this post i am discussing same so for that i have created a PL/SQL function that takes EmployeeId as input parameter and return it's Employees Name (Using Oracle HR Schema)

   EMP_NAME VARCHAR2(50) := 'N';

Access BindingContainer (Page Bindings) of another page using DataBindings.cpx in Oracle ADF

Hello all
this post is about a requirement of getting page binding of another page that is not active currently
we use BindingContainer to access bindings of current page, region in managed bean

Oracle Docs says-
The BindingContainer contains the Control Bindings for a reusable unit of View technology. For example, each individual Page, Region, or Panel refers to a unique BindingContainer with a set of Control Bindings that refer to the Model elements used by that Page. The BindingContainer interface is implemented by the data binding framework provider. 

So to access operations, methods exposed in client, listBinding, IteratorBinding we need to get BindingContainer of current viewPort (a page or a page fragment)
this method is used to get BindingContainer -

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();

as previously mentioned that BindingContainer contains bindings of current page but sometimes we need to access BindingContainer of any other page in order to access it's operations , iterators

So how to do this ?

for this i have created a 2 page fragments inside a bounded taskFlow

firstPage is very simple , it has only one button and secodPage has Departments (HR Schema ) viewObject as form

First Page Second Page

then i added createInsert operation in secodPage binidng, so here is the pageDef of secondPage
as there is no bindings on firstPage so there is no pageDef file is generated for that

now what i want to do is to call createInsert operation of Departments viewObject from firstPage, but there is no binding of operation in firstPage so if i use
to get BindingContainer then it will throw NullPointerException on calling createInsert

Now i have to get BindingContainer of secondPage -
Go to DataBindings.cpx file and see usageId for second page

Copy page usageId from there

pass this usageId in this method to get BindingContainer of secondPage

     * @param data
     * @return
    public Object resolvEl(String data) {
        FacesContext fc = FacesContext.getCurrentInstance();
        Application app = fc.getApplication();
        ExpressionFactory elFactory = app.getExpressionFactory();
        ELContext elContext = fc.getELContext();
        ValueExpression valueExp = elFactory.createValueExpression(elContext, data, Object.class);
        Object Message = valueExp.getValue(elContext);
        return Message;
    /**Method to get BindingContainer of Another page ,pageUsageId is the usageId of page defined in DataBindings.cpx file
     * @param pageUsageId
     * @return
    public BindingContainer getBindingsContOfOtherPage(String pageUsageId) {
        return (BindingContainer) resolvEl("#{data." + pageUsageId + "}");

then call createInsert operation using this BindingContainer


Happy Learning Cheers :)

Set on Current row after Rollback Execute or page refresh

Some times we edit a table in form and Save(Commit & Execute) or Cancel(Rollback & Execute)  and table refreshed to its first record means focus is now on first row of table.
And we need the same row again, then we search it and perform another operation, this is really disgusting behavior of table for Developer.

To set on previously selected row after execute we can use this code,
in this scenario we have to get current row key from its IteratorBinding and after Execute we can set it again to show that row as selected.

     * Generic Method to call operation binding
     public BindingContainer getBindings() {
      return BindingContext.getCurrent().getCurrentBindingsEntry();

     BindingContainer bindings = getBindings();
     //Get Iterator of table
     DCIteratorBinding parentIter = (DCIteratorBinding)bindings.get("IteratorName");
     //Get current row key
     Key parentKey = parentIter.getCurrentRow().getKey();

     //You can add your operation code here, i have used simple Cancel operation 
     //with Rollback and Execute
     OperationBinding ob= bindings.getOperationBinding("Rollback");
     OperationBinding ob1= bindings.getOperationBinding("Execute");
     //Set again row key as current row
