written by Anil Passi , January 20, 2007
Hi Pavan

Yes, Oracle Apps lets you have EO in Java form or PL/SQL API.
If your EO will use multiple table update/deletes or if there exists an API for re-use then you can use PL/SQL based entity object. An example is whereby you want an entity object to create FND_USER. In this case pl/sql fnd_user_pkg could be used.

Please see article http://oracle.anilpassi.com/pl...mpl-2.html

Hi Pavan

Yes, Oracle Apps lets you have EO in Java form or PL/SQL API. My personal choice is pl/sql.

I will publish some example to demonstrate that.

Hi Anil,

Thanks for this fantastic site. I have learnt such a lot on customising and working with OA Framework.

Is it possible to open a new window and display an external link like say http://news.bbc.co.uk from a link within an OA Framework page?

I tried this on one of the tutorials, converted an ietm to a link and put the destination as http://news.bbc.co.uk, and it worked fine when I ran it from JDeveloper.

I am now trying to do something similar, but the destination URL does not get formed correctly, it becomes http://tolkien.uk.tnsofres.com...file_name, file_name is my VO item and I'm currently retrieving the value http://news.bbc.co.uk in there.

Your help will be greatly appreciated.

Kind Regards

written by Anil Passi , July 13, 2007
Hi Malini

You can use staticStyledText as shown below

In case you wish to achieve this programatically, then use below approach in controller

import oracle.apps.fnd.framework.webui.beans.* ;
public void processRequest(OAPageContext pageContext, OAWebBean webBean)
super.processRequest(pageContext, webBean);
OAStaticStyledTextBean ost = (OAStaticStyledTextBean)webBean.findChildRecursive("item1") ;
ost.setLabel("Click here for my website");

PS: item1 is the item with style staticStyledText.

You may also use Raw text to achieve the desired results. < a rel="nofollow" href="http://news.bbc.co.uk" >http://news.bbc.co.uk< / a >

In case you are modifying the standard page, then use personalization to create new item of type staticStyledText

Hi Anil,
First of all thanks for all the articles you have written, you are doing a great job.
i had a query ,how can we change the custom home page of apps, as you must have seen in the custom home page i.e the OA.jsp page the message comes like ,Logged in as "XYZ" where xyz represents the login id of the employee which he entered in the login screen,but i want to replace thet messaage by a message Welcome ABC where ABC is the username fetch from the database.Is it possible if yes then how?
written by Anil Passi , August 07, 2007
Hi Sourav

First you need to find the fnd_message which is responsible for displayinng this.

-------------- ------------------------------
283 CN_LOGGED_IN_AS Logged In As &USER

I have shortlisted 3 for you. Howver to be 100% sure, you need to run debug log after setting that to Yes at statement level ,for the site.

For Table region,i want to pass a value from a table cell to populate another table

First of all thanx for making available such user friendly tutorials especially useful for novice developers...
We were trying to deploy search application in oracle apps 11i(
using Jdeveloper9i patch p6012619_11i_GENERIC we are facing the following problems:

1. The deployment guide(anjani pandey) available at ur portal has a differnt file structure mentioned( myproject exits in jdevbin whereas in our case it is located inside jdevhome)

2. well, after executing the script mentioned for import(C:p6012619_11i_GENERICjdevhomejdevmyprojects xxtoracleappsakxxpersonwebuixxPersonMainPG.xml -username apps -password apps -rootdir C:p6012619_11i_GENERICjdevhomejdevmyprojects -dbconnection "(DESCRIPTION=(ADDRESS=(PROTOCOL=tcp)(HOST="
it does shows import successful but when we try to accesss the page through Oracle apps (after registering, of course)we get following error messages:
(i) oracle.apps.fnd.framework.OAException: Application: FND, Message Name: FND_NO_REGION_DATA. Tokens: REGIONCODE = /apps/oracle/testcomn/java/oracle/apps/ak/xxperson/webui/xxPersonMainPG;
(ii) We even changed the HTML call required in apps but every time it shows similar msgs..

We even bounced the Apache server..

Grid Arrangement of checkboxes
written by Naveen Sreeramoju , October 05, 2007
Hi Anil,

Working in implementation of irecruitment module. Client wants a requirement as below

A grid arrangement of checkboxes is required to allow candidates to indicate their capacity to work at different times of the day on the different days of the week. This should look like below

Morning Hours Evening Hours Not Available.

There should be check boxes, so that applicant can let us know the exact availability of a day.

Can you throw some ideas on this ... or do we have any standard bean component to get this done..?

Naveen S
written by Anil Passi , October 07, 2007
Hi Naveen

You could try TableLayoutBean/Rowlayout bean.
Each checkbox will go into a cellformat.
For the first column of the header, its cellformat will contain a spacer. You will need to optimize spacer for its horizontal width.

Anil Passi

Thanks for your advice
written by Naveen Sreeramoju , October 17, 2007
Hi Anil,

Thanks for your ideas .. I have used combination of stacklayout and avancedtable to design the grid.

I have few doubts ..
1. Can we change the layout style of a standard page. The client requirement is to move defaultsinglelayout (Standard Look and feel) to defaultDoubleLayout. This is basically to accomodate space and add custom region to the standard one without having scrollbar.

2. If I have added custom region to standard region ... The controllers for standard and custom region will be different... so .. how to commit my transaction in this senario ??

For eg .. irecruitment module have a train of 4 pages, and i have to add custom region in 3 page of the train... controller for my region will be different .. so how can i commit my transaction...?

3. I have to build a new page which facilitates user to send Bulk emails to job seekers... how can we accomplish email functionality in OAF..

Thanks in advance for all your support..


Reg : Adding Regions in Standard page
written by Naveen Sreeramoju , October 17, 2007
Hi Anil,

I have a quick question ... In your demo we were able to add Flexiblelayout region to standard page and then U have given full path for the stacklayout there.

But when I am trying to add a region .. I am unable to see such options lie (Stacklayout,Flexible layout ... etc). On what basis the options over here will get changed...

Naveen S
written by Anil Passi , October 18, 2007
Hi Naveen

1. Changing from Doublecol to SingleCol, at runtime,
perhaps you could try ((OADefaultDoubleColumnBean)oawebbean).setNumberOfColumns(1);
I haven't tried doing this at my end, hence can't be 100% sure if this is going to work.
2. Nested Controller will be called and within that events generated from train can be captured.
In the nested controller[the one against stacklayout], you can use pageContext.getRootApplicationModule() and then invoke the commit within the root AM.
Additionaly another option, if your custom region is attached to a Custom AM, then you can invoke a commit from custom region
3. Use the code provided in http://scripts4oracle.blogspot...ocate.html for sending mass emails from Oracle EBS
4. Once Flexiblelayout has been created, personalize that item which you have created and withinn that click create to add stacklayout region

Catching parameters for an OAF Page
written by Naveen Sreeramoju , October 19, 2007
Hi Anil,

Thanks for all your support ....

I have a doubt as how to catch the parameters for a standard page. I have attached a custom region to standard page and when i am trying to query for a static value it is working fine.
But I couldn't able to trace out the the parameter name which is storing the value. I have tried by enabling diagnostics option too.. but no luck ..

Naveen S

written by Anil Passi , October 20, 2007
Hi Naveen
You can find out the list of all the parameters in a controller, by using a method named pageContext.getParameterNames(). This returns Enumeration type object, using which you can iterate over the list of parameters.

Some pages [for example in Oracle Student System] use Session Variables as well.

To analyse Oracle classes, simply decompile and study them.

How to retrieve the fully URL
written by Manish Neupane , October 24, 2007

Hi Anil,

I'm a newby in OAF development. Over the past 5 days I've managed to go through the Hello World and couple of other tutorial projects and managed a way to implement a new page for the payroll module. Everything so far has worked out pretty good after migrating the new page from my local development into an actual app server, except for a slight issue with the "setRedirectURL" command.

On the server it gives me an error that a forwarding pages needs to be a JSP or HTML, when in fact that is the case. The only way i've been able to get around this issue is to execute the setRedirectURL with the full URL like ("http://xky.server.com/OA_HTML/payslip_temp/file1.html") when before i was only passing in the relative path ("payslip_temp/file1.html"), as it worked without any issues on the local machine.

I would like to make the first part of the URL dynamic ("http://xky.server.com/" right now it's hard coded and we would have issues once the code is moved to the another environment) so is there a way to reterive it from the pageContext object ? . I've looked at the getCurrentURL, and number of other similar function but none of them seem to return the full URL.

Your input into this would be greatly appreciated .



Migration of personalizations
written by Naveen Sreeramoju , October 25, 2007
Hi Anil,

How r u ? Thanks for your inputs.. It was very helpful for me all the time..

1. I have personalized standard pages and added custom region to it.. now how can we migrate them to other instance.
2. When I have compiled project in JDEV, It will create classfiles in myclasses directory which also contains RN and PG files. So, what i am doing is move them to $JAVA_TOP and import the PG / RN. But Do we have to create directory structure in $APPL_TOP and move all PG and RN files there ? Is this a repository where we are saving / is there any other purpose ? ..
3. Is there any way to findout the depended objects on a particular region. For example, I have created custom region and now I want to know what are all pages where I have added this ..
4. Can you thorw some ideas on how to change the standard region style eg : defaultSingle layout to double layout.. I have tried your suggestion ((OADefaultDoubleColumnBean)oawebbean).setNumberOfColumns(1), but i couldn't get any solution for that...

Thanks ,
Naveen S

Can you please reply to the above query(Opening a standard oracle form with parameters from OAF page)

It's very important for us to resolve this as early as possible.

written by Anil Passi , February 15, 2008
Hi Ram

I have'nt done this in past.

However, I notice there is a java class named RunFunction
This class has a method named getRunFunctionLink to which you can pass in responsibility, Function as parameters.

Once you get the URL, you can assign this value to a link bean.

You can also consider invoking oapagecontext.runFunctionURLRedirect(linkStringFromPrevFunction)
I am yet to use this myself, hence you can use this suggestion to initiate your investigations.

OIE.K customization
written by Manav Manocha , March 16, 2008
Hi Sir,
i need your advice on one issue i have to work on
Here's the detail
In OIE.K, when a delegate tries to enter an expense report for an employee following error message pops up "Approver: The specified approver is not defined as a user of the application. Please enter another approver, or select one from the list of values." This occurs when the supervisor of an employee for whom expense report is entered either has an end dated User Record in Oracle or does not exists as an Oracle User (they are only entered as an employee). The Oracle standard functionality is to classify this as an invalid approver.
The request is to research and apply a customization to bypass this validation and proceed with the expense report entry even though the supervisor is not a valid supervisor.

This is related to OA framework jdeveloper
Can you please advice as to how i should proceed .i'll be really greatful to you

Hi Manav

Usually, we must not bypass such validations.
This validation is there for a good reason.
If your approver does not have an FND_USER account, then how will they ever Approve the expense report.
How will the workflow send them notifications, as they do not have access to application to logon.

What you should be looking to do is to create default FND_USER accounts for all the employees.
All this can be quite easily scripted.

Anyway, in answer to your question, you can extend view object oracle.apps.ap.oie.server.ApproversVO
When you extend the view object, you need to override the method below

public OAException validateUserAccount(Number number)
boolean flag = true;
flag = hasValidFNDUserAndWfAccount(number);
return new OAException("SQLAP", "OIE_ENTRY_APPROVER_NOT_USER");
return null;

public OAException validateUserAccount(Number number)
//do not call super.validateUserAccount(number) ;
return null;

Anyway, I hope you convince your business analysts to not to proceed with this extension.

I need your help to solve the following issue .
The issue is:
I have entered the Amount(25.00) in Non-catalog request in IProcurement the item type is "Goods or services billed by amount" and I filled the required field then click "Add to Cart button" we can see the shopping cart detail on left side. When we click the "view cart and checkout button" we will see the "amount(25.00)" in "Quantity" field.Price is 1.00 USD but the Amount will display in "Price" field. Amount is misplaced in quantity field. How can I resolve this problem. Please guide me?
