  2. Jason ReedySales Consultant Oracle Corporation

  3. Oracle Applications Framework • The development and deployment platform for HTML-based Oracle E-Business Suite Applications • 100% Java & XML J2EE based, middle-tier application framework and services for the rapid development & deployment of HTML based applications

  4. OA Framework-Based Page: The View

  5. The View – Regions and Items

  6. Personalization vs. Extensibility • Personalization • Declaratively tailoring UI look-and-feel, layout or visibility of built-in content to suit a business need or a user preference • Use the Personalization Framework • Extensibility • Extending the functionality of an application: • Adding new content or business logic • Extending/overriding existing business logic • Use JDeveloper

  7. Integrated Development Environment • Oracle JDeveloper OA Extension comes with a number of resources including: • A Developer’s Guide • Development Standards • A set of Tutorials • Javadoc • A Samples Library • Online Help

  8. OAF Personalization 30 Minute Quick Start

  9. Quick Start Agenda • Environment Setup • Add/Remove Columns • Rename Fields • Reorder a Displayed Table • Add a Tip or Message • Change Style Sheet • Remove OAF Personalizations

  10. Environment Setup

  11. Environment Setup • Personalize Self-Service Defn – Grant the permission to personalize the interface. Users will see the “Personalize” link • Disable Self-Service Personal – Will override the above profile option, hiding the “Personalize” link. The “Personalize” link will be removed from the page • FND: Personalization Region Link – Allows users to quickly jump to a particular region for personalization.

  12. Add/Remove Columns

  13. Choose Personalization Context • Choose a region of the view to Personalize • Identification is easier with the “FND Personalize Region Links” option set to “Yes”

  14. Choose Personalization Context • Alternately, click the “Personalize Page” link • Select the Scope, Function, Location, Organization, and Responsibility and click “Apply”

  15. Locate the Column • Expand the selected region’s table • Identify the column to add or remove • Click the “Personalize” icon • The “Shown” column identifies which columns are visible or hidden

  16. Update Properties • The field value “Rendered” identifies whether a column is show or hidden • Change the value to “True” at the desired level (e.g. User, Responsibility, etc.)

  17. Rename Fields

  18. Locate the Column • Expand the selected region’s table • Identify the column to add or remove • Click the “Personalize” icon • The “Shown” column identifies which columns are visible or hidden

  19. Update Properties • The field value “Prompt” identifies the text displayed for the column field • Replace the text “Inherit” with your desired text

  20. Reorder a Displayed Table

  21. Choose Personalization Context • Identify the table for which columns you want to re-order • Click the “Reorder” icon

  22. Reorder Columns • Select a Hierarchy level (e.g. User, Responsibility, etc.) • Re-arrange the order of columns by selecting a column and using the arrow keys to reorder • Click “Apply”

  23. Add a Tip or Message

  24. Choose Personalization Context • Identify the page for which you would like to add a Tip or Message • Click the “Create Item” icon

  25. Create the Tip or Message • Set the “Item Style” to “Tip” • Create a unique ID for your Tip or Message (e.g. “iExpMonthTip”) • Enter the text of the Tip or Message into the “Text” field • Click “Apply”

  26. Change Style Sheet

  27. Custom Style Sheets • OA Personalization Framework uses custom style sheets (.xss files) to specify and manage the visual characteristics of Oracle Self–Service Web Applications • The custom style sheets employ the XML Style Sheets (XSS) language • The BLAF (Browser Look and Feel) style sheet (blaf.xss) defines Oracle’s corporate look and feel for HTML applications.

  28. OA Framework Style Sheets • In OA Framework, style definitions for the look and feel of the Oracle Self–Service Web Applications are defined by the blaf.xss style sheet • Specific Oracle Self–Service Web Applications products may modify or extend those default styles. These product–specific styles are defined in the oa.xss style sheet document, which includes blaf.xss • As a customer, you may also want to modify existing styles in blaf.xss or oa.xss, or add new styles to suit your needs. Rather than directly modify blaf.xss or oa.xss, you should place all your style sheet customizations in a style sheet document called custom.xss, located in OA_HTML/cabo/styles

  29. Preserve Existing Styles • As of version 5.5.2 and higher, OA Framework always calls custom.xss as its main style sheet • The document custom.xss uses the <import> element to include all the styles defined in oa.xss, as llustrated above • The document oa.xss, in turn, uses the <import> element to include all the styles defined in blaf.xss • You can define your own style without altering the default application styles • Any changes made by Oracleto the oa.xss or blaf.xss do not impact your style personalizations

  30. Example: Customizing Colors 4 3 • The Oracle Browser Look and Feel standards make use of four colors that you may potentially want to change: • Text foreground • Text background color • Core background color • Accent background color 1 2

  31. Example: Customizing Colors • If you wish to change the colors in the user interface, you need only override the following four named styles: TextForeground, TextBackground, DarkBackground, DarkAccentBackground • The ”DarkBackground” and ”DarkAccentBackground” styles define the primary colors in the core and accent background color ramps respectively

  32. Remove Personalizations

  33. Restore Default Value • You may remove a Personalization for any single Property • Open the “Personalization Properties” for the desire item • Click the “Restore Default” icon • Click “Apply”

  34. Manage Levels • Choose the Personalization context • Click the “Manage Levels” button • Select the “Personalization Level” (i.e. User, Responsibility, etc.) • Click the “Delete Personalizations” button
