Using Web Pages in UPK 3.5

by Dirk Manuel | October 2009 | Oracle

In this article by Dirk Manuel, you will learn how to:

  • Use Web Pages in the Concepts pane and beyond
  • Use Packages and link them to content objects

A Web Page, in UPK terms, is a single file that can contain text or images. In this respect, Web Pages are very limited. You can perform rudimentary font formatting, provide lists, and insert images, but that's about it. You cannot insert tables, or use any HTML tags as you would be able to with real web pages (which you can only use via a Package). However, they are very flexible, and can be utilized in a number of ways.

Version Difference

For readers familiar with OnDemand version 8.7 and earlier, Web Pages are the new, improved text Infoblocks. Other types of Infoblocks have been replaced by Packages, which are covered separately, below.

Vaadin – Using Input Components and Forms

by Alejandro Duarte | August 2013 | Beginner's Guides Open Source

Vaadin is an open source framework to ease development of Java web applications that provides a programming model close to Swing or AWT. Vaadin is licensed under the Apache License, is well documented, comes with out-of-the-box theming facilities, and is supported by a committed company and a vibrant community contributing to the framework through forums and hundreds of add-ons. Vaadin allows developers to write web applications using only Java. Of course, HTML, CSS, and JavaScript are building blocks of web application development, however, by using Vaadin, developers will be maintaining Java code most of the time.

In this article, by Alejandro Duarte, the authors of Vaadin 7 UI Design By Example Beginner's Guide, we will take a closer look at the main components for retrieving and processing all the data that users want your application to be aware of. This article will cover the following topics:

  • Separating business classes from UI classes
  • Responding to value changes in input components
  • Getting and setting the value of input components
  • Tooltips and error indicators
  • Underlying Vaadin technologies
  • UI components hierarchy
  • Vaadin's data model

Validating and Using the Model Data

by Vinod Krishnan | May 2013 | Beginner's Guides Enterprise Articles Oracle

In this article by Vinod Krishnan, author of Oracle ADF 11gR2 Development Beginner's Guide, we will take a look at validating and using the model data. Validating data is important as business depends on the data that gets stored in the database. So how do we validate the data? Validation is something that makes sure that valid data is getting stored in the database. Validation could be anything from comparing two fields in a table to multiple validations on a single field involving different columns from a different table.

In any other framework, we would end up writing a lot of code even for a small validation. But in ADF, we do little or no coding at all, and most of the validations are achieved declaratively.

In this article, we will learn the following topics:

  • Declarative validation
  • Groovy expressions

Viewing on Mobile Devices

by Will Hacker | November 2013 | Open Source

In this article by Will Hacker, the author of the Mobile Prototyping with Axure 7, we will learn about getting our work on the mobile devices. The main reason for creating a prototype is to exercise a design idea to see if it matches the expectations of stakeholders and can be easily used by the people for whom we are designing. If it doesn't, and we fail, that's OK. That's why we make prototypes. Failing fast and learning from that are important parts of iterative design.

In this article we'll look at:

  • Publishing prototypes to AxShare
  • Creating home screen icons
  • Creating app splash pages
