关于Region间通讯(一个Region订阅另一个Region发布的事件),由于订阅的Region通过配置界面不可能选择到发布Region的事件,因此需要手工的修改订阅页面的PageDef.xml来订阅事件,代码如下,注意红字部分:
<?xml version=”1.0” encoding=”UTF-8” ?>
<pageDefinition xmlns=”http://xmlns.oracle.com/adfm/uimodel
version=”11.1.1.60.13” id=”eventTargetPageDef”
Package=”dj.demo.contextualevent.view.fragments”>
<parameters/>
<executables>
<variableIterator id=”variables”/>
</executables>
<bindings>
<methodAction id=”eventHandler” InstanceName=”TestPage.dataProvider”
DataControl=”TestPage” RequiresUpdateModel=”true”
Action=”invokeMethod” MethodName=”eventHandler”
IsViewObjectMethod=”false”>
<NamedData NDName=”event” NDType=”java.lang.Object”/>
</methodAction>
</bindings>
<eventMap xmlns=”http://xmlns.oracle.com/adfm/contextualEvent"&gt;
<event name=”buttonPressed”><!–订阅名称–>
<producer region=”*”><!–订阅来源–>
<consumer region=”” handler=”eventHandler” handleCondition=””>
<parameters>
<parameter name=”event” value=”#{payLoad}”/>
</parameters>
</consumer>
</producer>
</event>
</eventMap>
<events xmlns=”http://xmlns.oracle.com/adfm/contextualEvent"/&gt;
</pageDefinition>

关于将Backing Bean 方法暴露为DataControl,如果使用自动的方法,将生成一堆东西。
解决方法为生成后删除或手工配置,相关配置文件及示例(Bean Class为TestPage,注意红字部分):
DataControls.dcx
<?xml version=”1.0” encoding=”UTF-8” ?>
<DataControlConfigs xmlns=”http://xmlns.oracle.com/adfm/configuration
version=”11.1.1.60.13” id=”DataControls”
Package=”dj.demo.contextualevent.view“>
<AdapterDataControl id=”TestPage”
FactoryClass=”oracle.adf.model.adapter.DataControlFactoryImpl”
ImplDef=”oracle.adf.model.adapter.bean.BeanDefinition”

TestPage.xml
<?xml version=”1.0” encoding=”UTF-8” ?>
<JavaBean xmlns=”http://xmlns.oracle.com/adfm/beanmodel“ version=”11.1.1.60.13”
id=”TestPage” Package=”dj.demo.contextualevent”

<MethodAccessor IsCollection=”false” Type=”void” id=”eventHandler”

DataBindings.cpx

如果DataControls.dcx是新建立的话,还需修改adfm.xml adfm.xml
<?xml version=”1.0” encoding=”UTF-8” ?>
<MetadataDirectory xmlns=”http://xmlns.oracle.com/adfm/metainf
version=”11.1.1.0.0”>
<DataBindingRegistry path=”dj/demo/contextualevent/view/DataBindings.cpx”/>
<DataControlRegistry path=”dj/demo/contextualevent/view/DataControls.dcx”/>
</MetadataDirectory>
关于Action和Listener的Type,参见这两份Java Doc
http://myfaces.apache.org/trinidad/trinidad-api/apidocs/org/apache/myfaces/trinidad/event/package-tree.html
http://download.oracle.com/javaee/6/api/javax/faces/event/package-tree.html
Listener和Event的使用,需要修改发布Event的page的pageDef.xml,示例如下,注意红字部分
pageDef.xml_
<?xml version=”1.0” encoding=”UTF-8” ?>
<pageDefinition xmlns=”http://xmlns.oracle.com/adfm/uimodel
version=”11.1.1.60.13” id=”eventSourcePageDef”
Package=”dj.demo.contextualevent.view.fragments”>
<parameters/>
<executables>
<variableIterator id=”variables”/>
</executables>
<bindings>
<eventBinding id=”eventBinding”
Listener=”javax.faces.event.ActionListener”>
<events xmlns=”http://xmlns.oracle.com/adfm/contextualEvent"&gt;
<event name=”buttonPressed”
customPayLoad=”#{pageFlowScope.ctePayload}
eventType=”Action Event”/>
</events>
</eventBinding>
</bindings>
<events xmlns=”http://xmlns.oracle.com/adfm/contextualEvent"&gt;
<event name=”buttonPressed” customPayLoad=”#{pageFlowScope.ctePayload}
eventType=”Action Event”/>
</events>
</pageDefinition>
在Backing Bean 代码中raise event,注意Listener的转换类型与Event的类型需要与上述配置匹配
package view;

import java.util.Map;

import javax.faces.component.UIComponent;
import javax.faces.event.ActionEvent;
import javax.faces.event.ActionListener;
import oracle.adf.model.BindingContext;
import oracle.binding.BindingContainer;
import oracle.jbo.uicli.binding.JUEventBinding;

public class PublisherBean {
public PublisherBean() {
}

public void doAction(ActionEvent actionEvent) {

BindingContainer bindingContainer = BindingContext.getCurrent().getCurrentBindingsEntry();
JUEventBinding eventBinding = (JUEventBinding)bindingContainer.get("publisherEvent");

ActionListener actionListener = (ActionListener)eventBinding.getListener();
actionListener.processAction(actionEvent);

}
}
