    ADF Changing Fields on "Commit"?

    Joe the Jet
      Can someone explain to me how you can identify which Detail rows have changed in a Master/Detail form situation?

      If the user presses the "commit" button, ADF seems to "change" all the rows even though I have typed nothing into the fields. I know this because the trigger on the table updates the modified date/time field.

      I think this would only happen if an update of some sort is executed on each row.

      Is there a setting of some sort? How does JDev know if a child row has changed and how do I know?

      I'm using JDev

      I have this in my bean

      public void saveConfRequests()
      UserViewRowImpl vCurUser = (UserViewRowImpl)this.getCurrentUserVC().first();

      ConferenceViewRowImpl vConfRow = (ConferenceViewRowImpl)this.getConferenceViewParent().getCurrentRow();

      RowIterator vReqIter = vConfRow.getConferenceRequestsView();

      while (vReqIter.hasNext())
      ConferenceRequestsViewRowImpl vCurrentReq = (ConferenceRequestsViewRowImpl)vReqIter.next();

      ConferenceRequestsImpl vCrEO = (ConferenceRequestsImpl)vCurrentReq.getConferenceRequests();

      if (vCrEO.getEntityState() == Entity.STATUS_NEW || vCrEO.getEntityState() == Entity.STATUS_MODIFIED ||
      vCrEO.getEntityState() == Entity.STATUS_DELETED)
      if (vCrEO.getEntityState() == Entity.STATUS_NEW)
      if (vCrEO.getEntityState() == Entity.STATUS_MODIFIED)
      System.out.println("mod" + vCurrentReq.getUserLogin());
      if (vCrEO.getEntityState() == Entity.STATUS_DELETED)

      if (!vCurUser.getUserLogin().equals(vCurrentReq.getUserLogin())) // Then we have a proxy situation
      if (vCurrentReq.getEpayUserIdProxy() == null)

          Is there any way to tell what field ADF/Jdev thinks has changed?

            Ok, I figured it out by a process of elimination.

            I had a couple of columns that looked like this

            <af:inputText value="#{row.CnfrRqstCostAmt}" id="ot54" required="true">

            They needed to be this
            <af:inputText value="#{row.bindings.CnfrRqstCostAmt.inputValue}"
            shortDesc="#{bindings.ConferenceRequestsMasterViewChild.hints.CnfrRqstCostAmt.tooltip}" id="it3">
            <f:validator binding="#{row.bindings.CnfrRqstCostAmt.validator}"/>

            Have no idea how that happened. Oh wait, I thik I do know how it happened. I think JDev, when I first dropped my Master/Detail, set it up as outputText (why I would ask) and I didnt' convert it properly.
