ADF Basics: Use transient attribute to show description of selected value in case of input and combo Lov

In ADF often We apply LOV on a ID attribute to show it's Description to user, This works good in case of choice list (selectOneChoice) but if we use Input Text with List of Values (<af:inputListOfValues>) or Combo Box with List of Values (<af:inputComboboxListOfValues>) then after selection ID appears on page instead of  Description like this

So to avoid this we apply LOV on a transient attribute that shows Description and sets ID value DB attribute, See how to implement this

Get selected slice of dvt:pieChart using custom selection listener in ADF

First of all wishing a very Happy New Year to all of you, New Year is like a blank page , fill it with happiness and good memories

This post is about a simple requirement - How to get selected slice value of dvt:pieChart ?
So for this we have to create a custom selection Listener in managed bean that will be called whenever user selects any slice of pieChart
If you see documentation of pieChart it tells about two properties -

Get selected row (single/multiple) from POJO based table in ADF

Previously i have posted about populating af:table from managed bean using POJO and adding records in it, Check this-
Populate af:table programmatically from managead bean using POJO 
In this post i am extending previous post application
This post is about getting selected row from POJO based table , It is a common requirement while using af:table based on POJO

Get single row using custom selection listener-

SelectionListener  handles selection event of table , whenever user selects a row in table ,selection listener is fired
Set table RowSelection property to single (to select one row at a time) or multiple (to select multiple row ) and create a custom selection listener in managed bean that will handle table's selection event

See selection listener code in managed bean we can get selected row  using this -

import org.apache.myfaces.trinidad.event.SelectionEvent;

 /**Method to get selected row(single)
     * @param selectionEvent
    public void tableSelection(SelectionEvent selectionEvent) {
        //Get table from selectionEvent
        RichTable richTable = (RichTable) selectionEvent.getSource();
        //Cast to the List that populates table
        PersonBean row = (PersonBean) richTable.getSelectedRowData();
        //Get the attributes (column) from list

Now check this -

 Output on console :)

Get single/multiple selected row on a button click (ActionEvent)-

Set table RowSelection to multiple and select multiple row using Ctrl key of your keyboard
and check this code to get multiple selected row using RowKeySet, We can get all row using getSelectedRowKeys method

import org.apache.myfaces.trinidad.model.RowKeySet;
import java.util.Iterator;    

/**Method to get all selected record in af:table
     * @param actionEvent
    public void getSelectedRecord(ActionEvent actionEvent) {
        //getTableBind is binding of table on page.
        RowKeySet selectedEmps = getTableBind().getSelectedRowKeys();
        //Create iterator from RowKeySet
        Iterator selectedEmpIter = selectedEmps.iterator();

        while (selectedEmpIter.hasNext()) {
            String i =;
            //personList is the list used to populate table and name is a column of table
            //So here filter list using index and get values then
            PersonBean rowIter = personList.get(Integer.parseInt(i));

Now run and check again -

 Output on console :)

Blocking row navigation in af:table , synchronize row selection with model in case of validation failure- Oracle ADF

In ADF we often work on editable af:table and when we use af:table to insert ,update or delete data, it is normal to use some validation
but problem is when some validation failure occurs on page (in af:table) ,still we can select another row and it shows as currently selected Row
this is a bit confusing for user as Row Selection of af:table is not synchronized with model or binding layer

See Problem- 
  • I have an editable table on page

  • Added a validation to check negative value in field of LocationId, now navigate to another row

  • See selected focus is on Academic, but problem is when there is validation failure, why it is showing other row as selected ? 

  • If you check in ViewObject , you will find that row with DepartmentName Human Resource is current row

ADF framework provides a property in af:table to control navigation in af:table when there is some error or validation failure- blockRowNavigationOnError
See in oracle docs about this proprty-

Valid Values: always, never, auto

Whether we want to block row navigation in case of validation failure.
This is when you select a row and do some editing inside the table or in a related form, and this editing causes some validation failures. At this time, if you click on a different row in table, we want to block you from moving to the new row.
possible values are: always, never and auto. default value is auto.

  • always means we block the row navigation
  • never means we don't block and let the row navigation happen
  • auto means the framework will make the decision

by default in af:tabel it's value is <auto>

Change it to <always> and now see behavior on page

 now if you try to select another row, it is not get selected and selected focus is on row with validation
