Suppose that excel file contains below columns
EmpNo
EmpName
Job

Suppose also that I have Entity Object named XxxEmpEO and I created View Object XxxEmpVO based on previous entity object which has below attributes
EmpNo
EmpName
Job

Scenario
I added new item in page of type messageFileUpload ["uploadExcelFile" ] and Button ["uploadButton"].
If user click a button, I will upload excel file that is entered in messageFileUpload item to Entity Object and then commit changes to database.

Reset Sequence Value

I have old table already have a lot of data, I take decision to create new sequence to use it for getting serials in primary key of table to it.

For example : table SCOTT.EMP has EMPNO primary key and I want to create new sequence EMPNO_SEQ to store NEXTVAL of sequence in EMPNO column.

CREATE SEQUENCE SCOTT.EMPNO_SEQ
   START WITH 1
   MAXVALUE 9999999
   MINVALUE 0
   CACHE 25;

Oooooops, EMPNO column already has stored data that is maximum than sequence next value.
So I take decision to create generic procedure to reset sequence next value to maximum value of primary key in any table.

I created RESET_SEQUENCE procedure which takes three parameters
a-IN_SEQUENCE_NAME : name of sequence that I will use.
b-IN_TABLE_NAME : name of table which I will store sequence next value in its column
c-IN_COLUMN_NAME : name of column, If it is null I will get column which is primary key

Execute Javascript code from Java Code

In ADF framework you can execute Javascript code from Java code using the below method

   public static void runJavaScriptCode(String javascriptCode) {  
     FacesContext facesCtx = FacesContext.getCurrentInstance();  
   
     ExtendedRenderKitService service = Service.getRenderKitService(facesCtx, ExtendedRenderKitService.class);  
   
     service.addScript(facesCtx, javascriptCode);  
   }  

Import the following classes
 import javax.faces.context.FacesContext;  
 import org.apache.myfaces.trinidad.render.ExtendedRenderKitService;  
 import org.apache.myfaces.trinidad.util.Service;  


You can call previous method from anywhere from your code
For example I will display alert using javascript
 runJavaScriptCode("alert(\"My name is Mahmoud\");");  

Thanks
