Mostly when you see a carousel-ish component on the internet, it is automatically showing the next entry after a few seconds. I wondered if this could be done with the ADF carousel component as well. And guess what (more…)
ADF 11g: Carousel is not just for images – on carousels with panelbox, tabs, panelform and input components
Following on the heels of Luc's excellent post on the new ADF 11g carousel component – http://technology.amis.nl/blog/6514/jdeveloper-11112-carousel-component-as-master-and-detail – is another article that shows off this visually attractive component, using it in a slightly different way.
Even though the most logical application of the ADF 11gR1 PS1 carousel component is to use for displaying images, the component does not mandate that approach. We can create carousel-items that contain whatever we like – including forms with enterable items.

Which clearly demonstrates that ‘patch set’ is misnomer of sorts. Sure enough, there will patches – fixes for bugs – in this release, but the list of new functionality and features (Duncan Mills boasted about 550+ new features) make it clear that there is much more to it than just patches. I was more than a little (pleasantly) surprised with this list. Let me share some of the details- and unfortunately I cannot demonstrate anything at this point as the software is not yet available.
Some of the common themes that link the new elements together include developer productivity (and fun), team productivity, end user experience and best practices. And of course filling some of the holes that existed in the previous releases – in terms of things not working and also obvious things simply not More >
