ADF Crud operation and cascaded lov’s

Use Case : This Demonstrates a simple Master Detail Table ADF 11g CRUD Operation, Create – Read – Update – Delete Student Record . Teachers Table are Master Data and Every Teacher has a set of Students under him. We will demonstrate how to add students, delete and update student Record without adding a ton of code. and also we will use Cascaded LOV (List of Values) that student can select his Study Programs based on Course he/she selects. In real life the use-case can be very much different. the idea is to keep the use-case simple

database firewall exceptions

My Oracle Database 11gR2 is running on Fedora 16 Operating System. I was not able to connect from my JDeveloper which is running on Ubuntu 12.04 Machine. I was getting Test failed: IO Error: The Network Adapter could not establish the connection

This is a fire wall issue , all you need to do is go to database machine and run these commands
[oracle@james wc_domain]$ su
Password: ******
[root@james wc_domain]# service iptables save
iptables: Saving firewall rules to /etc/sysconfig/iptables:[ OK ]
[root@james wc_domain]# service iptables stop
iptables: Flushing firewall rules: [ OK ]
iptables: Setting chains to policy ACCEPT: filter [ OK ]
iptables: Unloading modules: [ OK ]

If your JDeveloper is on Same Machine as Database you will not face this Error Massage

Cascaded lov and select many choice 

ADF makes life easier with LOVs (List of values) , create a view link between master and detail table. with the id that joins these 2 tables. test under App Module. from the data control Drag and Drop the Master as “SelectOneChoice” and Drag and Drop the detail table as “SelectManyChoice” if you want multiple details , or use “SelectOneChoice” if you wish to select only one value from the LOV.
