Why Learn It? Glossary

ADF Bindings, Part 2


In this module, you dive deeply into binding internals. Specifically, you learn about:

  • The ADF architecture and the responsibilities of the binding layer
  • The ADF request lifecycle and how it augments the phases of the JavaServer Faces lifecycle
  • The ADF implementation of the component model and how it differs from the pure Java implementation
  • The runtime behavior of binding objects
  • Binding classes that you are likely to use while coding in Java

After completing this module you should be able to:

  • Describe the role of the binding layer in the ADF architecture
  • Explain the phases of the ADF request lifecycle
  • Describe how the ADF implementation of the component model augments the pure Java implementation
  • List several binding objects and describe why you might want to access them programmatically at runtime
  • Explain why you would use the af:switcher component
