  • Developing Java software on a Mac: file management

    For a developer, file management is an essential task. More than the average computer user, the location and name of a file matters to a developer. Often, (sets of) files have to be copied, either on the local machine or to or from a network share. Sometimes the command line is very fast and efficient for file management tasks. However, as directory structures get more complex, I prefer a visual file management tool, as it gives me a better overview of the structure.

  • Back from Vienna

    I returned from Vienna yesterday evening. After the CONFESS_2011 conference, I enjoyed the city for two days before heading home. I’ve just unpacked my stuff, so now I have the time to post my slides online at Slideshare. The source code of the demos is already online at my Google Code project. (You can just […]

  • Revisited: Oracle ADF and Virtual Private Database

    At the end of my previous post, I stated: There’s one more thing I’m not really sure of (yet). In section 39.7 of their Fusion Middleware Developer’s Guide, Oracle shows a (in my opinion rather hacky) way to make sure Session information is saved between different incarnations of the ApplicationModule. I’m not sure if this […]

  • Oracle ADF and Virtual Private Database

    As you probably know, Oracle ADF is a complete JEE application development framework from Oracle. It is targetted at companies that already have an Oracle Database and perhaps legacy applications developed with Oracle’s “Forms” technology. The client I’m working for at the moment is such a company, and we’re developing an application in ADF that is going to replace (a part of) their Forms application eventually.

    One would expect a framework designed by Oracle for use with an Oracle database to have excellent support for specific features of the Oracle database. For a lot of features this is true, but at my client’s, we were unlucky to have chosen to use a database feature that is not supported that well in ADF. That is “out of the box”. Wit a lot of “trial and error” and some help from some experts at the forum on Oracle’s Technology Network, I managed to get it working. Read on to find out what problems I encountered and how I solved them.
