Populate select one choice using Web Service Data Control in ADF Application

My previous post was about creating a JAX-WS Web Service from Java Bean and consuming web service and showing data in ADF table. Now In this post, I am going to elaborate about consuming that Web Service in ADF Application and show Employees data in selectOneChoice component

So for this requirement, We need to use Web Service Data Control and from that WSDL we can create ADF Faces components

Let's see how to implement this

Using Multiple Selection (selectManyListbox & selectManyCheckbox component) in ADF

Hello All ,
This tutorial is based on use of selectManyListbox & selectManyCheckbox component in ADF to enable multiple selection.
Both component are same in functionality only somewhat different in look-feel.

Follow steps to use these component -

  • Create a fusion web application and create business components for Departments table of HR Schema

  • Now create a page and drop Departments Vo from data control on page as multiple selection (checkbox or listbox) 

  • Now binding for this component is created in page-bindings, add a button on page to get total selected values

  • See how to get selected values in managed bean, JUCtrlListBinding is used to get selected values

  • import javax.faces.event.ActionEvent;
    import oracle.adf.model.BindingContext;
    import oracle.binding.BindingContainer;
    import oracle.jbo.uicli.binding.JUCtrlListBinding;   
     public BindingContainer getBindings() {
            return BindingContext.getCurrent().getCurrentBindingsEntry();
        public void getSelectedValue(ActionEvent actionEvent) {
            JUCtrlListBinding listBindings = (JUCtrlListBinding)getBindings().get("DepartmentsView1");
            Object str[] = listBindings.getSelectedValues();
            for (int i = 0; i < str.length; i++) {

  • this method works for both listbox and checkbox, i have added all selected departments in a FacesMessage and displayed on page

 Select All-

And Check-box component look like this-

Complete code written on 'Get Selected Values' button-

    /**Method to get BindingContainer of page
     * @return
    public BindingContainer getBindings() {
        return BindingContext.getCurrent().getCurrentBindingsEntry();

    /**Method to get Selected Values
     * @param actionEvent
    public void getSelectedValue(ActionEvent actionEvent) {

        JUCtrlListBinding listBindings = (JUCtrlListBinding)getBindings().get("DepartmentsView1");
        Object str[] = listBindings.getSelectedValues();
        StringBuilder saveMsg =
            new StringBuilder("<html><body><b><p style='color:red'>Selected Departments are-</p></b>");

        for (int i = 0; i < str.length; i++) {
            saveMsg.append("<li> <b>" + str[i].toString() + "</b></li>");

        FacesMessage msg = new FacesMessage(saveMsg.toString());
        FacesContext.getCurrentInstance().addMessage(null, msg);

Dynamically enable or disable items of ADF bound List (af:selectOneChoice) -Oracle ADF

Hello All,
This tutorial is about a requirement of conditionally enabling/disabling items (values) of adf bound List (af:selectOneChoice) component
here i am taking reference of default HR Schema (Departments and Location table )

See the steps-
  • Create a Fusion Web Application and business components using both tables
  •  Now create List of Values (Lov) on locationId of departments VO from Location VO
  • Set List Attribute to LocationId and for UI city will be shown
  • Now Drag Departments VO from Data Control on page as a form
  •  Select LocationId list field and delete f:selectItems from it, now drag af:selectItem as child of af:selectOneChoice and surround it with af:forEach 

  • Add tree binding of Location ViewObject to page bindings in order to populate list items using forEach
  •  Now select af:forEach and set its property and variable name, as we have to iterate through Location VO for list items
  •  Again select af:selectItem and set its value and label property using forEach variable's  
  • Now run your application, and see that list box is ready with values
  • Now we have to disable its values as a condition basis, i have written an Expression on af:selectItem's disabled property

  • I have written condition for DepartmentId 100 and 110, see in source of page

  • <af:selectOneChoice value="#{bindings.LocationId.inputValue}" label="#{bindings.LocationId.label}"
                                            shortDesc="#{bindings.LocationId.hints.tooltip}" id="soc1"
                            <af:forEach items="#{bindings.Locations1.rangeSet}" var="list">
                                <af:selectItem label="#{list.City}" id="si1" value="#{list.LocationId}"
                                               disabled="#{ (bindings.DepartmentId.inputValue==100 and (list.LocationId==1000 || list.LocationId==1300)) || (bindings.DepartmentId.inputValue==110 and (list.LocationId==1500 || list.LocationId==1600 || list.LocationId==1700 || list.LocationId==1800 || list.LocationId==1900))}"/>

  • Now value given in Expression for Location Id will be disabled for given Department
  • Run your page and select DepartmentId 100 and 110 to see disabled list items

Using af:switcher in ADF Faces to dynamically render page components

Hello all,,
Sometimes we need to display page components on a condition basis , this can be achieved in adf using af:switcher component
Normally switcher component is a collection of multiple facets and on a given condition it decides that which facet should be rendered.

How to use af:switcher- see the steps

  • Create a Fusion web application and create business components using Departments and Employees table (HR Schema)
  •  Now create a page in view Controller and drop a switcher component from component palette
  • Switcher is pure server side component so it doesn't have any client representation, so next move is to add facets in af:switcher, to add facets in switcher,
    just right click--insert inside af:switcher-- facet

  • As in this tutorial i am going to show 2 tables(Departments U& Employees) so added 2 facets in af:switcher

  • Now time to drop tables in corresponding facets, Employees Table in Emp, Departments Table in Dept
  •  Now i have created a static List that has values D for Departments and E for Employees, when user selects D the Departments table will be shown and for E Employees table will be shown

  • to do this select af:switcher and go to FacetName property and open expression builder to write conditional expression
  •  Now run this page and select values in list to see- how switcher works

  Download Sample App Cheers :-)

Programmatically populate values in a af:selectOneChoice component in ADF

In this tutorial you will see that how to populate selectOneChoice list from managed bean, sometimes we need to use custom list that are not model driven, this scenario can be implemented there

follow steps -

  • First of all create a fusion web application and a page in it
  • Now create a variable of type java.util.List in managed bean, and generate its accessors

  •     List<SelectItem> customList;
        public void setCustomList(List<SelectItem> customList) {
            this.customList = customList;
        public List<SelectItem> getCustomList() {
            return customList;

  • this list contains value of type javax.faces.model.SelectItem; that is supported by af:selectOneChoice
  • now time to add values in list, so to add values in this list i have written this code in getter of variable

  •     public List<SelectItem> getCustomList() {
            if (customList == null) {
                customList = new ArrayList<SelectItem>();
                customList.add(new SelectItem("i1","Item 1"));
                customList.add(new SelectItem("i2","Item 2"));
                customList.add(new SelectItem("i3","Item 3"));
                customList.add(new SelectItem("i3","Item 4"));
                customList.add(new SelectItem("i5","Item 5"));
            return customList;

  • Managed bean part is done, now add this to view layer

  • Drop choice list in page from component palette
  •  Now bind choice list to bean List

  • See the page source after whole setup-

  • <?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8'?>
    <jsp:root xmlns:jsp="" version="2.1" xmlns:f=""
        < contentType="text/html;charset=UTF-8"/>
            <af:document title="listPage.jspx" id="d1">
                <af:form id="f1">
                    <af:panelGroupLayout id="pgl1" layout="vertical" halign="center">
                        <af:spacer width="10" height="10" id="s1"/>
                        <af:selectOneChoice label="Custom List" id="soc1" contentStyle="font-weight:bold;color:darkgreen;">
                            <f:selectItems value="#{ListPolulatebean.customList}" id="si1"/>
