During UKOUG Tech14 in Liverpool, Wilfred and I had a presentation about how to create your own Custom ADF Component. Since we were busy on preparing the presentation there were no blogs about these beforehand.
I thought it would be nice to give a small recap, for anyone interested in going into creating Custom ADF Components.
In our sample application we created an ADF Component called ‘multi select’ which offers the user the ability to show a list of items and the ability to add items, delete items and select an item. The result is the component within the red line:
During our presentation, we had an overview of the components involved in creating a custom ADF component. The overview looked as followed:
At the end of the slide deck there is a slide with links to several documentation, we advise you to keep links to these documents close by you while starting to code your component. As you will see, we link to documentation from the ADF release 184.108.40.206 while we have build our component in ADF 12.1.3. This is because Chapter 31 ‘Creating Custom ADF Faces Components’ is not available in the 12c Documentation.
