Abstract


OAF Personalization means personalize the user interface (UI) of Oracle Self-Service Web Applications without modifying any underlying code whereas OA Framework extensibility is geared to enable customers to add new functionality and override or extend existing business logic beyond what can be accomplished via personalization. In short it the programmatic approach for personalization.

In this article I will explain a case study for OAF Personalization and Extension by analyzing real time requirement and how we have to use OAF Personalization and OAF Extension tomeet the requirement.


Business Requirement

customer defined DFF which is defined on the standard Oracle table needs to be enabled in the Self Service Web Screens.

There are five segments in the DFF. All the segments need to shown in the screens. Out of 5 segments, 4 are mandatory. However there is an exception to this rule. On certain circumstances (based on a lookup value) these segments are made non mandatory and defaulted with a value.

Analysis

On analysis, I found that the attribute columns on the standard Oracle table on which the DFF is defined was not included in the VO(View Object) on which the Self Service Page is built.

Also, we need to extend the CO (controller) of the page in order to handle the “mandatory” and “defaulting” with the DFF segments.

Design

This requirement can be easily achieved by following steps:

VO Substitution: Add additional columns to the VO.

OAF Personalization: Add the DFF field in the Web Screens using OAF Personalization Framework.

CO Extension: Handle the mandatory and defaulting values of segments based on the Lookup Value.




Implementation:

Step 1: VO Substitution

Actual VO: oracle.apps.pos.asn.server.PosAsnHdrIntfVO

SELECT PosRcvHdrIntfEO.HEADER_INTERFACE_ID,

       PosRcvHdrIntfEO.GROUP_ID,

       PosRcvHdrIntfEO.ATTRIBUTE14,

       PosRcvHdrIntfEO.ATTRIBUTE15

FROM RCV_HEADERS_INTERFACE PosRcvHdrIntfEO


Now this substitution information can be downloaded into an xml file which may look like:

   /oracle/apps/pos/asn/server/XXPosAsnHdrIntfVO"/>


Step 2: OAF Personalization

Now we need to add a new item to the Web Screens using the personalization link which is explained in the screen shot below:

height=434


After doing this we can download this personalization information into a XML file which will look like

  

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

         PO" flexName="RCV_SHIPMENT_HEADERS" flexStyle="descriptive" readOnly="false" rendered="true" scope="." userCustomizable="false" viewName="PosAsnHdrIntfVO" xmlns:oa="http://xmlns.oracle.com/oa"/>

     

      xxx.oracle.apps.pos.asn.webui.XXPosAsnLineEntryCO"/>

     

      xxx.oracle.apps.pos.asn.webui.XXPosAsnCreateCO"/>

  

   xxx/oracle/apps/pos/asn/server/XXPosAsnHdrIntfVO"/>


In order to take this VO Substitution and OAF Personalization to other environments, we can use the ‘XMLImporter’ Utility provided by Oracle.

Step 3:  CO Extension

In the extended controller we have to get the handle to the DFF and then make the individual segments mandatory or default the values based on the boolean flag ‘mandatory’.

public class XXPosAsnCreateCO extends PosAsnCreateCO

{



public void processRequest(OAPageContext pageContext, OAWebBean webBean) {


//Get Handle to DFF                               
 

OADescriptiveFlexBean dffBean =       (OADescriptiveFlexBean)webBean.findIndexedChildRecursive("DescFF"); 

dffBean.processFlex(pageContext);     


//Make the segments mandatory

  if(mandatory)

  {

  OAMessageLovInputBean  segment2 =    (OAMessageLovInputBean)dffBean.findChildRecursive("DescFF1");

   if(segment2 != null)

   {

     segment2.setRequired("yes");

    }

  ....

  }

//Default the segment with the values from lookup
 

else

{

OAMessageLovInputBean  segment2 = (OAMessageLovInputBean)dffBean.findChildRecursive("DescFF1");

if(segment2 != null)

{

  segment2.setText(pageContext,attr2);

}


...


   super.processRequest(pageContext, webBean);


}



This Java file needs to be deployed into the custom directory of the Oracle Apps instance ($XXX_TOP for example)





Screen shots:

height=376

Hi Senthil,

Excel lent article. Appreciate your efforts on documenting it so beautifully.

M y concern is if we implement such customization, then how to preserve them during an upgrade (say from 11.5.10 to R12.1)

Please advise.

0 #3 Anil Passi- 2010-05-26 10:00
Hi Rachna

This can be done, here is how
a. Extend the controller on that page
b. In this extended controller, create a VO dynamically to check if attachment exists against the invoice using an SQL similar to below
select 'x' from fnd_attached_do cuments where ENTITY_NAME ='INVOICE_OR_WH ATEVER' and pk1_value='invo ice_id_here'
Se e this link and copy paste
apps2fusion.com/apps/oa-framework/353-controller-extension-sql-pl-sql
3. Personalize the attachment region to ensure Auto-Commit is True
See my attachment articles if need be
This will ensure that data is available in fnd_attached_do cuments as soon as user enters the attachment
4. Throw an error message exception when dynamic VO of step 2 does not return any record

Thanks,
Anil Passi

Hi Shri,

OAF Personalization s are upgrade safe. However Controller extension depends on your logic. Refer to Anil's article in the following link

Hi Senthil,
A very good document and it really helped me a lot....Thanks a lot..

I need your help in a similar kind of requirement.I need to customize one seeded page which is the Bank Account page in AR.This page has one descriptive flex field
and this field has two segments as follows:
segmen t number -10,20
segment name - MName , MDesc
The Flexfield ID in the page is - "FlexField".So my question is how do I access the segments from the controller since I will have to default the "MDesc" field to "US Bank Account" while opening the Bank Account Page.
Please help me......

Hi,

The following code snippet might help you:

OADescriptiveFl exBean dffBean =
(OADescriptiveFl exBean)webBean.findChildRecursive("HzAddressStyleF lex");
dffBean.process Flex(pageContex t);
OAMessageTextIn putBean addr1 = (OAMessageTextIn putBean)webBean.findChildRecursive("HzAddressStyleF lex1");
addr1.setText(" Enter Address");

Her e HzAddressStyleF lex is the Flex ID and HzAddressStyleF lex1 is the first segment

Hope this helps.

Hi Senthil,
Thanks a lot for your quick response.
It resolved my issue but I have an another requirement.The Descriptive Flexfield has 2 context values ABC and XYZ . Now if I select ABC in the context value then only the corresponding segments should default otherwise the segment will not default.
How can I achieve this functionality please let me know.
I know Programmatic PPR can handle this but on which item I should put this PPR and how..Please help me in this.....

Hi,

We have extened one VO objects which was working fine.Now after apply the the standard patch, Standard VO defination is changed(Now it has different set of attribute) as the result of that the extented VO also start throwing error.

Is there any why to synchronize the extented VO with the upgraded VO.

Hi,
I've a read only Flex Field Segments displayed. I want to display the segments conditionally but I'm not able to geta handle of the segments based on the logic:

OADescr iptiveFlexBean dffBean =
(OADescriptive FlexBean)webBea n.findChildRecu rsive("HzAddres sStyleFlex");
dffBean.proces sFlex(pageConte xt);
OAMessageTextI nputBean addr1 = (OAMessageTextI nputBean)webBea n.findChildRecu rsive("HzAddres sStyleFlex1");
addr1.setText( "Enter Address");

When I try this:
OADescrip tiveFlexBean dffBean =
(OADescriptive FlexBean)webBea n.findChildRecu rsive("PerAsgDF F");
dffBean.proces sFlex(pageConte xt);
OAMessageTextI nputBean addr1 = (OAMessageTextI nputBean)webBea n.findChildRecu rsive("PerAsgDF F1");
if (addr1 != null)
addr1.set Rendered(false) ;
else
logic here..

It always goes to the else part.

I've also tried using MessageStyledTe xtBean to get the segment handle since this is read only. But it does not get a handle of the segment. Any help here is appreciated.

T hanks.

Hi,

As per oracle standards, you should not keep you extended file in the same package as that of std oracle file. You should place in a custom directory starting with 'xxx' or any custom name ...also the extended file should be something like XXSupplierSearc hCO.java ...

Please follow the standards and then post your errors if you get any.

Hope this helps.

I need to change the where clause of a view object at the time of pushing a search button.

For that reason I create a new controller, and i am trying to change the where clause.

The problem is that the query es dynamic, so at this moment I only could get the query in a whole, and not the where clause to change it.

Do you have an email to send you something?

Or

Which is the best way to change a dynamic query of a View Object?

Once i submit the report notification goes to manager and in the notification there will be a warning message : This iexpense report contains policy violation.

Hi,

As per Oracle Standards, popups are not allowed in OAF pages ..although you can use Javascript to acheive the same.

Alternat ively you can use throw new OAException("er ror msg") on your controller so that it shows the error message on top of the page.

For email notification, you have the following 3 options:
1) Use native Java program in CO to send emails
2) Use of Workflow/Alrets
3) Use of PLSQL if you have any custom PLSQL code.

Hope this helps.

Hi Senthil,

Thank you for making a wonderful article.

Just a short question, are VO substitutions always working? I extended a built-in VO, modified its query to include 3 columns, made sure that the 3 columns are mapped to 3 new attributes, and also made sure that the query is still the same (just with new columns).

I deployed the custom VO and the substitution file and made a bounce.

I also confirmed that the custom VO is being referenced through jdr_utils.print document('...') .

However, when I try to access the page, I am greeted with the following exception, even without modifying anything in the personalization of the page.

Did I miss anything?

Hi Donard,

VO substitutions work always. You might be missing something. Check the steps again and let me know if you need any help.

Hi ,

I have a requirrment to display a new structure in the Special Information Types (SIT) screen in SSHR. The data entered into the segment needs to be validated using PL/SQL function.

I have performed below steps to display the structure/field on SIT Page

1. Created new flexfield structure as XX_LEAVE_ENCASH MENT under the "HUMAN RESOURCE" Application (Application id- 800) and flexfield TITLE "Personal Analysis Flexfield" (PEA).

2. Added a new segment "Encash Days" for the newly created flexfiled structure "XX_LEAVE_ENCASH MENT".

3. Added this new structure in the Special Information Types form in HRMS responsibility

4. The structure is enabled on the SIT screen.

Now I want to validate the data entered in Encash Days field in this page by calling a PL/SQL function. This can be done by extending the SIT page Controller.

But how should the ID of the newly enabled segment (in the new Flexfield strucuture) be retrieved in the controller inorder to read the user-entered value (to further call the validation program)? Or is there any other way of achieving this functionality in OAF?

Please help.

Hi,

If you see the code snippet in the above article,

(Cut pasting for your easy ref)

//Get Handle to DFF
OADescriptiveF lexBean dffBean = (OADescriptiveFlexBean)webBean.findIndexedChildRecursive("DescFF");
OAMessageLovIn putBean segment2 = (OAMessageLovInputBean)dffBean.findChildRecursive("DescFF1");
segment2.setReq uired("yes");

DescFF is name of DFF
DescFF0 is segement1
DescF F1 is segment2 and so on ..

Hope this helps.

Thanks and Regards,

Hi,

If you look at the above article, I have got the handle to individual segments as highlighted below.


/Get Handle to DFF (Main FF)

OADescriptiveF lexBean dffBean = (OADescriptiveFlexBean)webBean.findIndexedChildRecursive("DescFF");

dffBean.proce ssFlex(pageCont ext);

// Get handle to individual segments

OAMessageLovInp utBean segment2 = (OAMessageLovInp utBean)dffBean.findChildRecursive("DescFF1");

segment2.setReq uired("yes");

Hope this helps.
