JDev 11.1.2.1.0: Dealing with ADF_FACES-60003 Error: Component with ID: r1:1:cb1 not registered for Active Data.

The last couple of weeks I saw some questions on OTN JDev forum dealing with file and image handling in ADF applications. All of the needed information to do this is already published in various blog posts and tutorials, still I did not find a post covering all aspects with a single demo application.

I’m in the progress of writing a mini series about file handling (upload and download) and image handling in ADF applications providing exactly this demo application. If you are interested in this stay tuned, as the first part is almost ready to publish.

Now, while I assembled the demo application I stumbled upon this error:

It happened when I used a af:fileDownloadActionListeneron a detail page fragment and navigated back to the master page fragment. As I never saw the error before and did not use ‘Active Data’ anywhere in my demo, I started digging.

There are some members of OTN hitting the same error (may be not under the exact same conditions) as this thread shows.
The thread points to an older post which mentions that this is caused by the bug 9218151 and is fixed in JDev 11.1.2.0.0. As I use JDev 11.1.2.1.0 this should not happen, or I see a regression of the bug in JDev 11.1.2.1.0. The bug database did not help either, as there is very little information on the bug itself.
The solution given in the thread to use a custom error handler (and ignore the error) did not seem right to me. I did not try the other solution to write a custom tag either, as it looks like overkill to me.

The normal debugging of this problem didn’t get me further to a solution. I tried a couple of things and even was able to get around the error with some hacks I will not publish here.

Luckily I met Frank Nimphius at the DOAG2011 and ask him about this bug (that’s what such events are for :)). He gave the right pointer to solve the problem.
With JDev 11.1.2.0.0 a new default ‘change event policy’ was introduced to the iterators and components. Now the policy is ‘ppr’ and not ‘none’ as before.
Jobinesh had blogged about the new ‘change event policy’ and its meaning here.

As I couldn’t reproduce this behavior in JDev 11.1.1.5.0 Franks suggestion was to set the change event policy back to none. After doing exactly this the error is gone, the application runs as expected.

The new policy can be changed (back to the old behavior) on a global level for applications you are building new under JDev 11.1.2.x. To do this open the adfc-config.xml file from the ‘Application Resources:

adfc-config.xml

adfc-config.xml

change to the ‘Overview’ tab and select the ‘Model’. Here you remove the selection from the check box:

adfc-Config.xml Change Event Policy

adfc-Config.xml Change Event Policy

If you already have done some work in your project, e.g. used some views on an UI page, you have to change the iterators one by one. For this open the bindings of the page and select an iterator:

Change Event Policy on Iterator

Change Event Policy on Iterator

You may let the default ‘change event policy’ be ‘ppr’ if you like, as there are some advantages (there must be a reason why Oracle changed it in the first place). Only if you hit the error you can change the policy for the iterators involved. Keep in mind, that changing the policy later may have some side effects to your existing pages. It’s up to you to decide and test this.

I’ll file an SR for this just to make sure that Oracle looks into this again. For me it looks like a bug as I don’t understand why I get an error at all.
