• ADF BC doesn’t “generate
code”
• “default” XML definition
• Allows you to expose
more and more of the
implementation code
Getting into the code
• Exposing code in the Entity Object

• Query
• Pre-Query, Post-Query
• Transaction
• Pre-Commit, On-Commit, Post-Commit
• Pre-Insert, On-Insert, Post-Insert
• Pre-Delete, On-Delete, Post-Delete
Validation Triggers
• When-Validate-Item
• When-Validate-Record
Query Triggers
• Post-Query
• Non-base table population
• Running totals
• Pre-Query
• Modify query
Transactional Triggers
• Insert, Delete, Update
• Pre• Post• On-
The Best of the Rest
• When-Create-Record
• When-Remove-Record
• When-Button-Pressed (UI processing – later)

Next Level – UI Processing
• Auto Submit
• Conditional UI processing
• Expression Language validation
• Backing/Managed Beans
• “Stacked canvases”
• Conditional page flow
Auto Submit
• HTML UI validates only on POST
• ADF Faces provides Partial Page Rendering
• AutoSubmit submits page when field changed
• PartialTrigger defines fields that re-act to changes

Auto Submit
Conditional UI Processing
• JSF Expression Language (EL)
• Backing/Managed Beans
Stacked Canvas
• <af:switcher>
• Number of facets
• Each facet is a “canvas”
• Property to defines which
canvas to render

Stacked Canvas
Conditional Page Flow
• Button action returns a string
• When-Button-Pressed
• Define page flow based on runtime criteria
