Debugging ADF Code

Debugging tends to be harder when various technologies and components are tightly coupled as changes in one may have impact in another.JDeveloper has several tools  that can be used to help debug an application . It contains procedures with breakpoints using ADF Declarative debugger .

Download the sample application ADF Debugging application

2) Run the Main.jspx in debug mode. Right click on Main.jspx(view controller project) and select Debug.

Setting a break point is very easy. Just Follow the below step

4) Click on the icon as described in the above picture. (to go next breakpoint). It takes you to next break point in the code flow.

5)Next breakpoint in our code is at TF2 in TF1.xml . you can see the step by step debugging execution in the left side ADF Structure panel .Look at the above picture for reference.

6) Click on the icon (to go next breakpoint) . Now in the ADF Structure you can see the execution at TF2/fragement2 .Select  TF2 in the ADF Structure panel and click ADF Data panel . Expand pageFlowScope tree and you can see the passed input from the input screen to the target . Now again select /TF2/fragement2 from ADF Structure panel and click at next breakpoint.
