ADF11: Select Text Resource Bug

August 2, 2009 – 12:28 pm

Last week I came accross a cool blog about ADF BUGS FACTS. The author inspired me to write myself about similiar experiences with ADF11/JDeveloper.  So today I will describe a bug concerning the i18n capabilities in ADF11.

First I have to mention tha the support for i18n text resources improved very well with JDev11 but there is a case when things do not work correctly. So in the case your ViewController project name contains a dash. things do not work anymore as expected. So in our company we have following convention to name our applications/projects.


With that convention your not able to work with the “select text resource” feature on ADF Faces Pages, because invalid code is generated. So here is the example


Because the ViewController project is called myapp-ui you get the following buggy code


Solution is to remove the dash in c:set and of course all  EL references.

<c:set var="myappuiBundle"


<af:outputText value="#{myappuiBundle.MY_APPLICATION_TITLE}" id="ot1"/>

After this fix the text resource is resolved correctly


So notice: Using dashes (-) in project names may cause trouble in development of fusion web applications.

JDeveloper for Mac

July 8, 2009 – 10:33 pm

The new release of JDeveloper 11g R1 finally got better integration for Mac users. Before that release we had to start the IDE by hand from the terminal or we had to create a script for comfortable starting. Now we got an “app” launcher. It makes me happy:-)


General installation instructions of JDeveloper on Mac OS are well documented at Andrejus Baranovskis blog

Oracle WebLogic Server 11g (10.3.1) installed

July 2, 2009 – 11:54 pm

As you might have noticed Oracle released the Fusion Middleware 11g! With this release a new version of Oracle WebLogic Server is shipped.The installation is straightforward, although I came across one new dialog.


So with 10.3.1 you are able to be informed about security issues.

Another change is that Workhop has gone from the installation option and is replaced by OEPE (Oracle Enterprise Pack for Eclipse)


The ConfigurationWizard changed a bit for better usability, but there are actualy no functionl changes I think.

After domain creation and starting the AdminServer the administration console appears in a new look.


Log in and you see the following web interface


From the first point of view the stylesheet just has been polished.

So far from the new weblogic 10.3.1 release for the moment.
