One very common pattern in Mobile Apps is the use of “pull” to refresh a list of data in an App.
For one of my projects I suggested to use this pattern and I had to figure out a way to implement this in ADF Mobile. In this post I show you a way to implement this. If you are only interested in the refresh part, you might want to skip the first 5 steps. These explain in short the webservice and the basic ADF Mobile app. From step 6 on I explain how to implement the pattern (more…)
Recently the ADF Special Interest Group at AMIS organized an ADF DVT Speed Date. During this speed date, six ADF specialists from our team presented their favorite Data Visualization Component from the DVT library. In a series of blog posts we share the information with a broader audience. In this post you get introduced to the Hierarchy Viewer – which was my own date for this party.
Introduction : The Hierarchy Viewer
A Hierarchy viewer is typically used to display hierarchical data. Examples of this are for instance a tree of life or a mindmap or even a family tree.
The ADF hierarchy viewer consists of several ADF components.
- dvt:hierarchyViewer : This element wraps the dvt:node and the dvt:link elements
- dvt:node : The dvt:node element supports the use of one or more f:facet elements that display content at different zoom levels (100%, 75%, 50%, and 25%).
- dvt:link : connects one node with another node
- dvt:panelCard : The panel card element provides a method to dynamically switch between multiple sets of content referenced by a node element using animation by, for example, horizontally sliding the content or flipping a node over.
A hierarchy viewer component requires data More >
It has been a while that I have been attending Hotsos, although that is how it feels. In 2011 I flew to Hotsos to see, among others presentations from Maria Colgan, but I ended up being sick the whole week while learning on my hotel room to enjoy American TV. In 2012 I skipped Hotsos (10th year anniversary) thinking my schedule was too full with international presentations, but alas, that agenda cleared up expectantly, so in the end I missed out on some big conferences as a presenter and/or attendee.Hotsos?
You don’t know the Hotsos Symposium? The Hotsos Symposium is, in my honest opinion, is one of the most interesting best symposiums/conferences out there, when you goal is learning all about (Oracle) performance. This yearly happening takes place in Irving, Texas, in an Hotel on an isolated location somewhere nearby a highway some miles from Dallas downtown. When I read that Maria Colgan would do the Hotsos Training Day (an extra symposium option), without even seeing the rest of the symposium agenda, I knew I had to attend. Maria is a very natural gifted speaker and with her comfy way of addressing (difficult) problems and solutions, she nowadays easily attracts the same More >
Recently started the Oracle program: Are You The Smartest. For me it is an opportunity to test my current knowledge level and to extend my knowledge. After every session I follow, I will write a brief summary as part of the preparation for the test. I will continue with the summary of the following session.ARCHITECTS TRAINING – SERVICE INTEGRATION – Oracle RUEI – Maximize business value by insight into real end-user experiences
This short (45 minutes) session was divided into the following four parts:
- Why is it important to bring up RUEI to customers?
- Basic explanation of the technology
- Use cases

After every session I follow, I will write a brief summary as part of the preparation for the test. I will continue with the summary of the following session.ARCHITECTS TRAINING – SECURITY – Identity Governance
This session was divided into the following three parts:
- Overview Oracle Identity Governance Suite (30 minutes)
- Demo (50 minutes)

Some definitions “Governance is the act of governing. It relates to decisions that define expectations, grant power, or verify performance” “IT governance primarily deals with connections between business focus and IT management. The goal of clear governance is to assure the investment in IT generate business value and mitigate the risks that are associated with IT projects” “ IT Governance Institute expands the definition to include foundational mechanisms: “… the leadership and organisational structures and processes that ensure that the organisation’s IT sustains and extends the organisation’s strategies and More >
At the customer site Jan van Zoggel and I performed a number of tests to find the best fit for the combination BPM, UCM and Humantasks. We testen how to attach a document to a Humantask and make it available in the process. After that we tested how to store the document from BPM in UCM. And Finally we figured out how to configure the environment to make BPM and UCM work together.
Jan wrote the following three post of our test findings: Using attachment documents with Oracle BPM Human Tasks Using a Content Server with Oracle BPM Human Tasks Integration of Oracle BPM and Oracle UCM/WCC
