Looking for help with a specific Oracle ADF question?

The forum on OTN is a great place to ask your question, but before you ask something, you should try and find out if you someone else already solved your problem and documented it.

The ADF developer community is very active, and many members are contributing to the public knowledge base around ADF.

Googling for your issue could be your first step - but sometime google is not focused enough.

 

In this blog entry I wanted to introduce you to another place where you can search for answers - the Oracle ADF indexed how-to's repository.

Check it out at - https://pinboard.in/u:OracleADF

 

On a first look it might seem a bit confusing, what is going on in here?

Well, the ADF Product management team is indexing various blog entires we find on the web that deal with ADF.

Whenever we find a new entry we tag it and add it to this repository.

 

The nice thing for you is that you can then come to this site and search based on specific tags.

See the search box at the top right?

Let's suppose that you have a question about filtering data in an ADF Faces table.

Type filter into the search box (notice that as you type you get to see tags with the letters you have) - then click "Search Mine".

Now you got a big list of entries related to filtering. (notice the <<earlier link at the bottom of the page that will give you even more answers).

 

Instead of going over all the entries that you got as a reply try this:

In the search box after "filter" add "af:table" and click the search mine again.

This seems even more accurate.

 

This repository is a very powerful tool for you and will help you find solutions faster.
