This blog will explain how to Build a Simple Oracle ADF page using Oracle BAM Data Control

The Oracle BAM reports can be built through BAM Active Studio or through BAM data control in Oracle ADF page.
In this blog I will be explaining about the steps required to build a simple ADF page using BAM data control.

Creating the BAM Connection:
  • Open the JDeveloper
  • Create new BAM Connection

  • Enter the BAM Server details as shown below. 

  • Click on Finish and Test the connection
  • Create the data object in BAM through Architect view (I am using the existing data object Employee)

Runtime Exception in Oracle ADF application with Oracle BAM Data Control - Failed handling event FirstGetOnDataProvider on QueryConfigured

We may receive the following exception while running the Oracle ADF application with Oracle BAM Data Control configured into that.

        at oracle.adfinternal.view.faces.model.

The issue is because of the BAM connection details are not configured in the EM console after the deployment of the application.

If we are deploying the application to the stand alone server, the Oracle BAM connection must be re-created in Oracle Fusion Middleware Control Console after the deployment of the application.
Also application must be deployed using MDS enabled otherwise the connection details will not be persisted.

Steps to resolve this issue:

Enable the MDS for the Application:
  • Right click on the project and Select Project Properties.

Problem while deploying Oracle ADF application - java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: oracle.adf.library.webapp.ResourceServlet

Sometimes we may receive the following exception while deploying the Oracle ADF application to the server.

The issue is the oracle.adf.library.webapp.ResourceServlet class is missing in the class path.This issue can be resolved by deploying the application as EAR file instead of deploying the project as WAR file.

Steps to resolve the issue:
  • Right click on the application and select Application properties

  • Select Deployment and click on New

Send the reports to external email ids through Alerts - Oracle BAM server.

By default we can’t send the reports to an external email id’s from a Oracle BAM server, the reports only can be send to a users configured with Oracle BAM servers(through weblogic console).This post will explain how to enable the Oracle BAM server to send the reports to the external email ids.

Before following this post the email drivers details should be configured in UMS (through em console).

By default AlertActionAllowExternalEmail property in the BAMCommonConfig.xml file is set as false.
Change the value of AlertActionAllowExternalEmail property to true in the BAMCommonConfig.xml file to enable the external email feature. The BAMCommonConfig.xml file can be located in the following location BAM_DOMAIN_HOME/BAMDomain/config/fmwconfig/servers/BAMManagedServer/applications/oracle-bam_11.1.1/config.

Create an Alert to send the report to the External Email:

  • Login to the Architect window; select the Alert from the drop down list and click on Create New Alert.

Uploading the files to a database table with commons fileupload

Uploading the files to a database table with commons fileupload:

Create the web project
Create a html file form to upload the file

    <title>Add MP3</title>
    <h2>Add MP3</h2>
    <form id="addmp3" enctype="multipart/form-data" action="/OnlineMusicPlayer/MP3UploadServlet" method="post">
        <tr><td>Enter Title :</td><td><input  type="text"  name="title"/></td>
        <tr><td>Select MP3</td><td><input type="file"  name="photo" />
        <input type="submit" value="Add MP3"/>



Change the action accordingly with the servlet path.

Create a servlet to store the file to a database table.

import java.sql.*;
import java.util.List;

import javax.servlet.ServletException;
import javax.servlet.http.*;
import org.apache.commons.fileupload.*;
import org.apache.commons.fileupload.disk.DiskFileItemFactory;
import org.apache.commons.fileupload.servlet.ServletFileUpload;

import db.DatabaseConnection;

public class MP3UploadServlet extends HttpServlet {
    private static final long serialVersionUID = 1L;

    public MP3UploadServlet() {
        // TODO Auto-generated constructor stub
    protected void doGet(HttpServletRequest request,
            HttpServletResponse response) throws ServletException, IOException {
        // TODO Auto-generated method stub
    protected void doPost(HttpServletRequest request,
            HttpServletResponse response) throws ServletException, IOException {
        boolean isMultiPart = false;
        PrintWriter out = response.getWriter();

        Connection con = DatabaseConnection.getConnection();
        PreparedStatement ps=null;

        try {
            // Check that we have a file upload request
            isMultiPart = ServletFileUpload.isMultipartContent(request);
            System.out.println("isMultiPart=" + isMultiPart);

            if (isMultiPart) {
                // Create a factory for disk-based file items
                FileItemFactory fileItemFactory = new DiskFileItemFactory();

                // Create a new file upload handler
                ServletFileUpload servletFileUpload = new ServletFileUpload(

                List fileItemsList = servletFileUpload.parseRequest(request);

                out.println("<title>MP3 upload</title>");

                FileItem id =  (FileItem)fileItemsList.get(0);
                String songtitle = id.getString();

                // get uploaded file
                FileItem file = (FileItem) fileItemsList.get(1);
                ps = con.prepareStatement("insert into music_store(song_id,song_title,song_data) values(song_id_sequence.nextval,?,?)");

                ps.setString(1, songtitle);
                ps.setBinaryStream(2, file.getInputStream(),(int) file.getSize());
            out.println("File Upload Success...");
        } catch (Exception e) {
            // TODO Auto-generated catch block
            out.println("File Upload Error....");
        } finally {
            if (con != null)
                try {
                } catch (SQLException e) {
                    // TODO Auto-generated catch block

The song_data column in the music_store table should be BLOB.

The jar files required - commons-io-2.2.jar , commons-fileupload-1.2.2.jar

Oracle Fusion Middleware Adapters

Details on Oracle Fusion Middleware Adapters:

Application Adapters
Legacy Adapters
Changed Data Capture (CDC) Adapters
B2B Adapters
Technology Adapters
VSAM Batch
Oracle Applications
Microsoft SQL Server 2005
J. D. Edwards
Microsoft SQL Server 2000

Advanced Queueing


MQ Series



Technology adapters are included in the Oracle Internet Application Server and WebLogic Suite license upon which the Oracle SOA Suite has a licensing dependency. Other adapter types are licensed separately.

Financial Service adapters, along with Financial Message Designer, are separately licensed standalone products which inter operate with Oracle Service Bus. They are not JCA adapters like the other integration adapters. They include:

    SWIFT Adapter for Oracle Service Bus
    FIX Adapter for Oracle Service Bus
    Payments Adapter for Oracle Service Bus
    Derivatives Adapter for Oracle Service Bus

An additional separately licensed adapter, Enterprise Link for Business Activity Monitoring, is offered as an extension of the Oracle BAM product for customers who are looking to leverage Oracle BAM's embedded extract, transform and load (ETL) tooling. Enterprise Link is only one of five major ways to source data into Oracle BAM and is not required in all customer implementations. Customers who do not need Enterprise Link are any customers connecting to Oracle BAM only through BPEL PM Sensors or the Web Services API for Oracle BAM's Active Data Cache. Enterprise Link is required for all customers connecting to Oracle BAM through JMS queues or though query-based ETL updates. This includes customers who want to listen to JMS messages in existing integration environments, transfer large data sets into BAM, or archive data out of the BAM Active Data Cache on a scheduled basis.

Invoking a web service with HTTP Basic authentication – OSB 11g

Invoking a web service with HTTP Basic authentication – OSB 11g:

To invoke the webservice that is protected with basic authentication, the Service account needs to be created and attached to the outbound business service (the service that calls the webservice)
This post explains the steps required to invoke the basic authentication enabled service.
  • Login to sbconsole
  • Create the Service AccountA service account provides a user name and password that proxy services and business services use for outbound authentication or authentication to a local or remote resource, such as an FTP server or a JMS server. For example, if a business service is required to supply a user name and password for transport-level authentication with a Web Service, you create a service account that specifies the user name and password and then you configure the business service to include the service-account credentials in its outbound requests.
  • Select Project Explorer and then select a project or folder in which to add the service account
  •  From the Create Resource drop-down list, select Service Account to display the Create a New Service Account page

The server does not support version 3.0 of the J2EE Web module specification - Eclipse

Sometimes we used to receive the following exception when running the web application in latest eclipse version.

The server does not support version 3.0 of the J2EE Web module specification.

The issue is when creating the web project in latest eclipse by default the web version  will be selected as 3.0 but the server what we are having is not supporting the web 3.0.

There is two options to fix this issue.

1. Upgrade your server to latest version
2.Open org.eclipse.wst.common.project.facet.core.xml file from /workspace/<Your project name>/.settings and change jst.web version to 2.5 instead 3.0

<installed facet="jst.web" version="2.5"/>
