Have you ever made a small change to a really complex service on a tight timeline hoping and praying you didn’t inadvertently hatch any new bugs while fixing your current one? If so, you’ll find that this pattern is a much better way to calm your nerves rather than a prescription from your doctor. This is because a framework that supports automated testing can quickly exercise every possible scenario in your service without being shackled to actual databases, web services, messaging queues or other external dependencies. In Part 1 of this series we discuss how to ensure that our project is set up in a modular way that will enable easy testing. Whenever your project requires calls to an external dependency such as a database, web service or messaging queue the best practice is to use a product like Oracle Service Bus to manage these interactions.

Even back in the 60s it was not uncommon for crew members to gather data with portable equipment while on a mission, and then send it to computers aboard the starship Enterprise, hovering above the planet for processing. Today, you don’t need to conduct business on another planet to gain the benefits of cloud-enabled BPM.
The purpose of this post is to document, step-by-step, how to create cascading dropdowns in an ADF form's user interface when ADFbc is used. A cascading dropdown frequently occurs in forms and occurs when a selection made in one field's dropdown automatically and dynamically changes the list of valid values in another field's dropdown. This topic uses address fields for this example. After selecting a country from the country field's dropdown list, the state field's list of valid states or provinces is changed to show the list of states / provinces for the country selected.
Remember back in college when you bought that “easy-to-assemble” desk? You were ready to dig in and put that thing together the second you got it up to the apartment. That desk meant a lot because it would be the foundation you needed to study in an organized and efficient manner. Well, I’m guessing you didn’t throw away the instruction booklet that came with it. Or if you did, I’m betting something came out backwards or upside down.
