How To in Jdeveloper ADF Tutorials – get the selected table rows

This is a useful handy code to get the selected rows for the table.

What it does:

  • Get handle to the table using the JSFUtils find component method with the table id passed as a parameter
  • Get the selectedRowKeys for the table
  • Iterate through the rowkeys
  • Get the rowkey from the iterator
  • Add the rowkeys into a list
  • return the list to the caller

This method takes the table id as the parameter

private List getSelectedList(String tableName) {
RichTable rt = (RichTable)JSFUtils.findComponentInRoot(tableName);
RowKeySet keySet = rt.getSelectedRowKeys();
Iterator iter = keySet.iterator();
iter = keySet.iterator();
List list = new ArrayList();
while (iter.hasNext()) {
return list;


This method is used to check if any rows are selected for the particular table. The method returns the rowkeys of the rows selected if there are any rows selected for the table

Jdeveloper Design Time issue fix

In Jdeveloper 11.1.2 we often see that the designer is going off and looks clumsy without the ‘WYSIWYG’ feature during the design time. The jspx or jsff designer in Jdeveloper will show as

To fix this we directly go and delete this directory o.j2ee.jsplib in

C:\Documents and Settings\ USER_NAME\ApplicationData \JDeveloper\system11.

Thanks to the blogger

For other version, if the file or folder does not exist then go to o.j2ee and delete or move – jsp-faces-tags-cache.xml and jsp-libraries.xml. Also delete .wlLib folder if it exists. If nothing works delete the system folder.

also make sure that the ‘Execute Tags in JSP Visual Editor’ is checked for adf components

Caused by: oracle.oc4j.sql.config.DataSourceConfigException: Unable to create : com.ibm.as400.access.AS400JDBCDriver

 at oracle.oc4j.sql.spi.ResourceAdapterImpl.createDataSourceConnectionPool(ResourceAdapterImpl.java:99)
 … 13 more

This was very challenging for me because this is the first time I ran an ADF application on Jdeveloper 10g. I searched on the forum with this error and could easily find that the fix is to copy the library to
