A little while ago I got a very nice challenge: play around with the ADF client-side framework.
It was implemented using autoSubmit and partialTriggers. Due to the roundtrip to the server the response time was low when having a lot of rows. To speed it up, I was asked to look if (de)selecting all rows could be done on the client.
Never having worked with that part of ADF yet, I started searching and quickly found the Oracle documentation, but actual examples to clarify some topics.. hmmm not so much. The use case is quite specific but I thought it would still be nice to blog about it to be at least an example of some of the client-side functionality for other people in need. (more…)
- support keyboard (function key based) navigation in rich ADF Web pages (in addition to mouse based actions)
- support online and inline editing of customized (per context) resource bundle entries
- create a stand-alone viewer that allows users to inspect images (jpeg, tiff), PDF documents and Word and Excel documents
While working on these requirements, I have used – through Google, my main tool – a large number of very valuable resources on the internet. From the Oracle Technology Network Forums (OTN) to StackOverflow (http://stackoverflow.com), from personal blogs to corporate white papers as well as formal documentation – I have picked an incredible number of brains in a very condensed period of time.
I did not stop to leave notes of gratitude on all the sites I have come across. So I thought – for my own future reference as well as to pay some hommage to all these sites and individuals that helped me and to provide some insight in what challenges I faced and how I addressed them – to write More >
Stand-alone Java Client for jWebSocket Server – communicating from Java Client to Web Clients and vice versa over WebSockets0
In a previous article, I have discussed the open source jWebSocket Server and a simple installation and configuration (http://technology.amis.nl/blog/14940/first-steps-with-jwebsocket-open-source-java-framework-for-websockets-installation-and-running-samples). Subsequently, I have shown the implementation of a web client for a synchronized Slideshow application, where WebSocket communication is used to perform Client 2 Client push (http://technology.amis.nl/blog/14949/push-based-synchronized-slideshow-web-application-implemented-using-websockets-and-jwebsocket-server-the-open-source-java-websocket-server). In a third article I have explained how jWebSocket server can be integrated with a Java application that can start the server and interact with it (http://technology.amis.nl/blog/14973/implementing-a-java-server-side-component-for-jwebsocket-server-for-websocket-interaction-with-web-clients). Finally in this article I demonstrate how a stand alone Java Client can connect to a ‘remote’ jWebSocket server and open WebSocket interactions with it.
The functionality realized in this article is a simple Java application that listens to slide selection events as pushed from the clients More >
Implementing a Java Server Side component for jWebSocket Server for WebSocket interaction with Web Clients4
This article will describe how a Java application can integrate with jWebSocket server – in fact: start the server from within the Java code -and subsequently register listeners that intercept WebSocket communication from other interaction partners such as Web clients. The Java application can also send messages to specific clients or broadcast to all clients. This article More >
Push-based synchronized slideshow web application – implemented using WebSockets and jWebSocket server – the open source Java WebSocket server2
In a recent article, I have introduced jWebSocket – an open source Java based server for WebSocket communication: http://technology.amis.nl/blog/14940/first-steps-with-jwebsocket-open-source-java-framework-for-websockets-installation-and-running-samples. In this article, I have described how to download and install the jWebSocket server and how to get going with running some of the distributed samples.
In another recent article, I looked at the implementation of a slideshow application where multiple web clients are mutually synchronized using WebSocket based communication using the Kaazing commercial Web Socket Gateway: http://technology.amis.nl/blog/14777/push-based-synchronized-slideshow-web-application-implemented-using-websockets-and-kaazing-websocket-gateway.
In this article, I will implement that same Slideshow application as with Kaazing, this time using the jWebSocket server as my underlying WebSocket infrastructure. It turns out that no server side configuration is required for this initial, somewhat naive implementation that does not use a specific channel but simply has all clients of the jWebSocket server participate in the communication. A more advanced set up would More >
