Oracle Fusion Applications are on the move. They were demonstrated at Oracle Open World 2009, they are current being tested with dozens if not hundreds of organizations and they have been promised for general availability later in 2010. Screenshots of selected modules are available on the internet, for example at: http://www.flickr.com/photos/oracleopenworld09/sets/72157622462805751/.
Fusion Applications are of interest to any ADF developer, as Oracle teams have worked hard – in close collaboration with the ADF development teams – to come up with UI patterns, ways of leading the end user through the application, presenting data and currently available actions in intuitive or at least consistent ways that would most likely work for most of our applications as well. And since we have the same technology stack at our disposal as the Fusion Apps teams have, we can see whether their best practices work for us too.
A recent addition to the catalog of ADF Faces components was the contextInfo component. It is quite heavily used in Fusion Apps for one such consistent pattern. The next screenshot illustrates this component:

Today I was triggered by a question on the JDeveloper forum about invoking a popup from a backing bean. Actually some time ago I had to build that solution for one of my customers that needed some kind of confirmation to the user that an action invoked in a dialog popup was succesfull. The flow in this solution was more ore less like this: Invoke a dialog popup –> press ok (or cancel) in the dialog –> if ok was pressed, invoke the dialogListener which contains the actual logic to be executed. In case the action is succesfull, show another popup that tells the user "all is well" in all the other cases do something different. (more…)
