ADF Postback Payload Size Optimization - 15-Jul-2018 02:45 - Andrejus Baranovskis
Recently I came across property called oracle.adf.view.rich.POSTBACK_PAYLOAD_TYPE. This property helps to optimize postback payload size. It is described in ADF Faces configuration section - A.2.3.16 Postback Payload Size Optimization. ADF partial request is executing HTTP post with values from all fields included. When postback property is set to dirty, it will include into HTTP post only changed values. As result - server will get only changed attributes, potentially this can reduce server time processing and make HTTP request size smaller. This especially can be important for large forms, with many fields.

Let's take a look into example. After clicking on any button in the form, go to network monitor and study Form Data section. You will see ID's and values for all fields included in the UI. All fields are submitted with HTTP request by default, even these fields were not changed:


Postback optimization property can be set in web.xml. By default it's value is full, change it to dirty:


With value set to dirty, try to change at least one field and then press any button. Observe Form Data section in network monitor - only fields with changed values will be submitted:


Try to test it in your project and see the difference.

Check my sample app for this use case on GitHub.
Oracle ADF on Docker Container by Andrejus Baranovskis - 14-Jul-2018 09:45 - Jürgen Kress

Want to run Oracle ADF on Docker? This is possible, I will explain how. If you are new to Docker, it may require to spend significant amount of time to get started with all different bits and pieces. I will try to explain all essential steps, so that you will get up to speed quickly.
First of all you need to have DB accessible, check my previous post explaining how to run Oracle DB on Docker - Oracle Database Docker Image in Docker Cloud (Digital Ocean). DB is required to install RCU schema for WebLogic installation with JRF files.
I have built my own Oracle Fusion Middleware Docker image using Oracle Docker images - Oracle Fusion Middleware Infrastructure on Docker.
First step is to build Oracle JDK (Server JRE) image, this is pre-requisite to build Oracle Fusion Middleware Docker image. Read through instructions documented on Oracle Fusion Middleware Infrastructure on Docker GitHub page. You should navigate to Oracle Java folder (download Oracle Docker files from GitHub link mentioned above) and copy there JDK installation file: Read the complete article here.

If you’re a fan of the Oracle Applications User Experience (OAUX) team’s free OAUX Rapid Development Kits (RDKs), you’ll be happy to know we have an exciting addition coming soon for your library of PaaS4SaaS toolkits: the new Oracle JET (JavaScript Extension Toolkit) for SaaS User Experience (UX) RDK is on the way.

This JET4SaaS RDK is based on the powerful Oracle JET, which streamlines the building of custom applications to interact with Oracle SaaS and PaaS services, based on open source and Oracle-contributed JavaScript libraries and custom components, CCS3, and HTML5. The JET RDK, like our other OAUX RDKs, is designed to enable partners, developers, and customers to accelerate the design, build, adaptation, and deployment of simplified and mobile user interfaces (UIs) for Oracle software as a service (SaaS) and platform as a service (PaaS) products – in hours – using our proven user experience principles.

It was a tremendous amount of fun to see all of the new announcements, innovations, and visions of the future at Oracle OpenWorld 2017.  From Slack, to AI & Chatbots, to Blockchain and more, one can see Oracle is moving towards a comprehensive, open, and exciting future.

In fact, as I walked around the OpenWorld demo grounds last week, one exhibit in particular caught my attention.  No, there weren't any free t-shirts, or drones, or beer given away at this demo booth.  Instead, positioned in a corner of the Innovation Studio in Moscone North, sat a large lacquered table supporting several miniature robots, small plastic boxes with etched QR codes, a faerie-sized wooden door, and a tablet with facial recognition software.  Nearby, a large monitor displayed a live Facebook Messenger conversation, streamed from a mobile phone, between a person and a chatbot.

What was this peculiar demo and why did it fascinate me so much?  Part of the attraction, admittedly, was that I was intently curious to see what could possibly fit through that miniature door. Was one of the robots going to open it, or drive through it? (The answer to both questions was "no," but both the door and the robot still ended up being used in very cool ways.)  More importantly, I became fascinated with the demo when I learned about the use case it was trying to solve, how well it worked, and which technologies it used. Read the complete article here.

Thomas Kurian, Oracle president of product development, has mapped out the technology path ahead for Oracle, and it includes artificial intelligence, machine learning, chatbots, and new human interfaces.

During a keynote presentation at Oracle OpenWorld in San Francisco, Kurian said these emerging technologies now fit into the vision Oracle has had since it started building its cloud offerings more than a decade ago: Let anyone, anywhere in the world, access the power of all of Oracle’s technologies using only a browser or a phone.

“We’re going to show you not just the new innovations we have in Oracle Cloud, but also a glimpse into the future of Oracle, of how we’re infusing the new technologies of autonomous computing, artificial intelligence, IoT, blockchain, and new forms of human interface into our cloud offering,” Kurian said.
