G Expression Language Expressions

This appendix catalogs the Expression Language expressions (ELs) available for use with the custom portals and applications you create using Oracle WebCenter Framework. Some of these expressions can be used in both WebCenter Framework and WebCenter Spaces. The Context column indicates whether the EL is exclusive to WebCenter Framework (WCF) or can be used with both (Both).

This appendix includes the following sections:

See Also:

For additional information about EL APIs, see Oracle Fusion Middleware Java API Reference for Oracle WebCenter.

G.1 ELs Related to the Application

Table G-1 lists an EL expression relevant to the application and describes the type of functionality it provides. The listed EL applies to both WebCenter Framework and WebCenter Spaces.

Table G-1 EL Expression Relevant to the Application

Expression Function

#{requestContext.skinFamily}

Returns the name of the ADF Faces skin family being used for the current web request, depending on factors such as what has been configured at the application level, the current user's preference setting, and so on.

Returns the same value as #{adfFacesContext.skinFamily}.


G.2 ELs Related to Security

Table G-1 lists EL expressions relevant to application security, describes the types of functionality they provide, and indicates the context in which each expression can be used.

Table G-2 EL Expressions Relevant to Security

Expression Function Context

#{security.authenticated}

Returns true when the current user is authenticated in the context in which the EL is being invoked, otherwise false.

Both

#{securityContext.userName}

Returns the user name of the currently logged in user. If the current user is not logged in, this expression returns no value.

Both

#{WCSecurityContext.currentUser['userName']}

Returns the value true if the current user is the specified user, otherwise false.

Both

#{WCSecurityContext.userInAppRole['role']}

Returns the value true if the current user is assigned the specified OPSS application role. This expression is useful in WebCenter Portal applications that are scope unaware (that is, that do not support Spaces).

Example:

#{WCSecurityContext.userInAppRole['AppConnectionManager']}

WCF

#{WCSecurityContext.userInGroup['group']}

Returns the value true if the current user is assigned the specified group, for example:

#{WCSecurityContext.userInGroup['Administrators']}

Both


G.3 ELs Related to General Settings

Table G-2 lists EL expressions relevant to general application settings and describes the types of functionality they provide. All listed ELs apply to both WebCenter Framework and WebCenter Spaces.

Table G-3 EL Expressions Relevant to General Settings

Expression Function

#{generalSettings.userTimeZone}

Returns the time zone the current user has selected in application preferences.

#{generalSettings.preferredDateStyle}

Returns the date format the current user has selected in application preferences.

#{generalSettings.preferredDatePattern}

Returns the current user's preferred date format pattern if it has been set, else, returns null.

Note that date + pattern is applicable only to custom WebCenter applications, where they take precedence over date + style if they are set.

#{generalSettings.preferredTimeStyle}

Returns the time format the current user has selected in application preferences.

#{generalSettings.preferredTimePattern}

Returns the current user's preferred time format pattern if it has been set, else, returns null.

#{generalSettings.preferredDateTimePattern}

Returns the current user's preferred date and time format pattern if it has been set, else, returns null.

#{generalSettings.preferredAccessibilityMode}

Returns the current user's preferred accessibility mode (either default, inaccessible, or screenReader)

#{generalSettings.preferredSkinName}

The current user's preferred skin name if one is specified, otherwise the default value.

#{generalSettings.formattedCurrentDate}

Returns the current date in the current user's selected locale.

#{generalSettings.formattedCurrentTime}

Returns the current time in the current user's selected locale.

#{generalSettings.formattedCurrentDateTime}

Returns the current date and time in the current user's selected locale.

#{requestContext.skinFamily}

Returns the name of the ADF Faces skin family being used for the current web request, depending on factors such as what has been configured at the application level, the current user's preference setting, and so on.


G.4 ELs Related to Application Resources

Use the expressions in this section to query for resources. Querying for a resource through an EL expression is similar to querying for it through an API call. That is, you must set query parameters in the format .property['value'], where property is the name of the property, for example, id, resourceScope, and the like, and value is the search value for the attribute.

A query can result in single or multiple results. The query designer must decide what is wanted. The query designer determines whether to return one or multiple results by encountering one of the following values in the expression:

Note:

Occurrences of singleResult or resultList in the expression are used internally as the query end point, and, after this, the query is executed immediately. Anything set after the end point can result in unexpected behavior.

The following example returns the first template resource found with a display name that contains myPage:

#{srmContext.resourceType['siteTemplate'].displayName['myPage'].singleResult}

The following example returns a list of template resources residing in the directory resourceDir, with a description that contains sampleDesc:

#{srmContext.resourceType['siteTemplate'].description['sampleDesc'].contentDirectory['resourceDir'].resultList}

A property of this class includes any attribute of this class. Example properties include: Id, DisplayName, iconURI, contentDirectory, and the like.

The property value can be an explicit value or an EL expression that returns that type of value. For example, the following two queries return the same result:

#{srmContext.id['resourceId'].singleResult}

#{srmContext.id['spacesContext.currentSpace.uiMetadata.siteTemplateId'].singleResult}

You can use any property of this class in an EL-based query in the format property['value'] and in any order. For example, the following two queries return the same result:

#{srmContext.resourceScope['scopeName'].id['resourceId'].singleResult}

#{srmContext.id['resourceId'].resourceScope['scopeName'].singleResult} 

Table G-4 lists EL expressions relevant to WebCenter resources and describes the types of functionality each provides. You can use all resource EL expressions in both WebCenter Spaces and custom portal applications built with Oracle JDeveloper.

Many of the expressions in Table G-4 are building blocks for narrowing down the resource or resources you want returned. That is, they are not necessarily meant to be used by themselves, but rather in an assembly of ELs to form the desired query.

For example, the following expression uses three resource-related ELs to form a single query that returns a particular Space template. It retrieves the template storesMasterTemplate from the parent Space stores:

#{srmContext.resourceScope['stores'].resourceType['siteTemplate'].displayName['storesMasterTemplate'].singleResult}

Table G-4 ELs Relevant to WebCenter Site Resources

EL Function

#{srmContext.id['resourceGUID']}

Returns the resource with the specified ID

#{srmContext.displayName['resourceDisplayName']}

Returns any resources with the specified display name

#{srmContext.displayNameKey['displayNameKey']}

Returns any resources with the specified display name key

#{srmContext.description['resourceDescription'].singleResult}

Returns one result of a resource that contains the specified value in its description

To get multiple results, use resultList in lieu of singleResult.

#{srmContext.descriptionKey[descriptionKey].singleResult}

Returns one result of a resource with the specified description key

The description key is the key in the xsrt file for the resource description.

To get multiple results, use resultList in lieu of singleResult.

#{srmContext.createdDate['resourceCreationDate']}

Returns any resource with the specified creation date

#{srmContext.modifiedBy['resourceLastModifiedBy']}

Returns any resource that was last modified by the user with the specified user name

#{srmContext.modifiedDate['resourceLastModifiedDate']}

Returns any resource that was last modified by the specified date

#{srmContext.resourceScope['resourceScope']}

Returns any resource that falls within the specified scope

#{srmContext.category['categoryName']}

Returns any resource that falls within the specified category

For example:

#{srmContext.category['siteTemplates']}

#{srmContext.contentDirectory['contentDirectory']}

Returns any resource that is stored within the specified directory

#{srmContext.metadataFile['metadataFileLocation']}

Returns resource metadata from the specified metadata file

For example, the following expression returns resource metadata from the following file /home/metadata/data.xml:

#{srmContext.metadataFile['/home/metadat/data.xml']}

#{srmContext.jspx['jspxFileLocation']}

Returns any jspx file in the specified location

For example, the following expression returns the page.jspx file:

#{srmContext.jspx['/home/web/page.jspx']}

#{srmContext.pageDef['pageDefinition']}

Returns any jspx file with the specified page definition

#{srmContext.iconURI['iconURI']}

Returns the icon at the specified icon URI

#{srmContext.excludeFrom['excludeFromScopes']}

In a larger expression, returns all specified resources except those available in the excluded scopes

#{srmContext.usesCustomSecurity['usesCustomSecurity']}

In a larger expression, returns any resource the either does or does not use custom security

Set usesCustomSecurity to TRUE or FALSE. For example:

#{srmContext.usesCustomSecurity['TRUE']}

#{srmContext.seeded['seeded']}

In a larger expression, returns any resource that is or is not seeded, depending on the provided value

Set seeded to TRUE or FALSE. For example:

#{srmContext.seeded['TRUE']}

#{srmContext.visibleType['visibleType']}

In a larger expression, returns any resource that is of the specified type of visibility

Set visibleType to TRUE, FALSE, or NEVER to indicate that the resource is never shown. For example, the following expression returns resources that are visible, that is, resources that are set to Show:

#{srmContext.visibleType['TRUE']}

#{srmContext.visible['visible']}

In a larger expression, returns one or multiple resources with visibility set to either TRUE or FALSE

#{srmContext.createdBy['resourceCreator']}

In a larger expression, returns any resource created by the specified user

#{srmContext.resourceType['resourceType']}

In a larger expression, returns one or multiple resources of the specified type

For example, the following expression searches for a resource of the type SITE_TEMPLATE:

#{srmContext.resourceType['SITE_TEMPLATE']}

Note that all resource types are listed in Oracle Fusion Middleware Java API Reference for Oracle WebCenter, in the GenericSiteResourceTypes class.

#{srmContext.version['version']}

In a larger expression, returns one or multiple resources available in the application of the specified version

#{srmContext.resourceScope['scopeName']}

In a larger expression, returns one or multiple resources available in the specified scope

For example, the following expression searches for resources in the scope (in this instance, the Space) MySpace:

#{srmContext.resourceScope['MySpace']}

To search in the default scope, that is, the application scope, use defaultScope.

#{srmContext.searchType['searchType']}

In a larger expression, returns one or multiple resources that contain or equal the values set by other included expressions

Set searchType to CONTAINS or EQUALS.


G.5 ELs Related to Navigation

Table G-4 lists EL expressions relevant to application navigation and describes the types of functionality they provide. All listed navigation ELs apply to both WebCenter Framework and WebCenter Spaces.

Table G-5 EL Expressions Relevant to Navigation

Expression Function

Navigation Context Expressions

 

#{navigationContext.defaultNavigationModel}

Returns default navigation model. It gets the value from the preference bean. The preference bean gets the value based on the preference setting in adf-config.xml, static value.

The following example returns the specified default tree model:

#{navigationContext.defaultNavigationModel.defaultTreeModel}

You can also use defaultMenuModel and defaultListModel (see next listing).

#{navigationContext.currentNavigationModel}

Returns the navigation model used to navigate to the current view (that is, the current page)

There may be a number of navigation models on the page. Only the one used to navigate to the page is the current navigation model.

The current navigation model is set only when the processAction is called.

The following example returns the default tree model for the current navigation model:

#{navigationContext.currentNavigationModel.defaultTreeModel}

You can also use defaultMenuModel and defaultListModel.

See Also: #{navigationContext.processAction}.

#{navigationContext.navigationModel['model_path']}

Returns the navigation model specified by path.

Example:

#{navigationContext.navigationModel['/oracle/webcenter/portalapp/navigations/default-navigation-model']}

User can simply enter the path in the square bracket without having to remember the parameter name. For backward compatibility, comma-separated parameters are also supported. Available parameters (with examples) are:

  • modelPath=/oracle/webcenter/portalapp/navigations/default-navigation-model

  • modelScope=/oracle/webcenter/portalapp/navigation

  • modelId=default-navigation-model

Note: modelScope and modelId are used together, for example:

#{navigationContext.navigationModel['modelScope=/oracle/webcenter/portalapp/navigations,modelId=default-navigation-model']}

#{navigationContext.processAction}

Returns the default navigation method for binding to UI component's actionListener attribute. This assumes that the target resource to navigate to is passed in through the action UI component's node or path attribute.

The node attribute is typically used for the iterative case; while the path attribute is typically used to create a static link. If both are specified, the node attribute is used. Note that when using the path attribute, you must also specify the model attribute to pass in the navigation model object. If the model attribute is not specified, the current navigation model is used.

Example using the node attribute:

<af:forEach var="node" varStatus="vs"
 items="#{navigationContext.defaultNavigationModel.rootNode.children}">
  <af:subform id="pt_sfm1">
   <af:commandLink id="pt_cl1"
    text="#{node.title}"
    inlineStyle="font-size:small;color:White;"
    actionListener="#{navigationContext.processAction}"
    action="pprnav">
   <f:attribute name="node" value="#{node}"/>
    <af:showPopupBehavior popupId="menuPopup"
     align="afterStart"
     triggerType="mouseOver"/>
  </af:commandLink>

Example using the path attribute:

<af:commandLink id="pt_cl1" text="Prescriptions"
  inlineStyle="font-size:small; color:White;"
  actionListener="#{navigationContext.processAction}"
  action="pprnav">
<f:attribute name="path" value="/prescriptions"/>
<f:attribute name="model"   value="#{navigationContext.defaultNavigationModel}"/>
</af:commandLink>

Navigation Model Expressions

 

#{navigationContext.defaultNavigationModel.defaultTreeModel}

#{navigationContext.defaultNavigationModel.defaultMenuModel}

#{navigationContext.defaultNavigationModel.defaultListModel}

#{navigationContext.defaultNavigationModel.defaultSiteMap}

Returns a tree/menu/list model based on the default settings

The default values for the settings are specified in the next row. For example, the default value for depth is 0.

For defaultSiteMap, it returns the XML for the site map of the navigation based on the default settings.

This expression returns a model of type:

  • ChildPropertyTreeModel—used in <af:tree> component

  • ChildPropertyMenuModel—used in <af:breadcrumbs> or <af:menu> component

  • ListNavigationResource—used in <af:foreach>

#{navigationContext.defaultNavigationModel.treeModel['parameters']}

#{navigationContext.defaultNavigationModel.menuModel['parameters']}

#{navigationContext.defaultNavigationModel.listModel['parameters']}

#{navigationContext.defaultNavigationModel.siteMap['parameters']}

Returns tree/menu/list model based on the specified comma-separated parameters. Available parameters (with default values as examples) are:

  • startNode=/—specify the starting node of the model (do not need "/" prefix unless requesting the root node, for example, home).

  • includeStartNode=true—specify true if you want to include the starting node (for example, the root node above) or false to start from its children.

  • depth=0—defines the initial depth of fetching. "0" means fetch the entire tree, which may take a long time. In which case, use "1" to fetch on demand (when users click the Expand icon).

  • prefetchOnly=false—by default (true), it returns nodes up to the depth level requested initially; deeper level nodes are returned on demand. Use false if you want only the initial sets of nodes. In which case, it does not return deeper nodes later on when requested, even when there are deeper nodes.

For siteMap, the available parameters are startNode and includeStartNode.

Example:

#{navigationContext.defaultNavigationModel.treeModel['startNode=home,includeStartNode=false,depth=2']}

#{navigationContext.defaultNavigationModel.rootNode}

Returns a root node (of type NavigationResource) of the navigation model.

Example:

<af:commandLink id="pt_cl1" text="Prescriptions"
  inlineStyle="font-size:small; color:White;"
  actionListener="#{navigationContext.processAction}"
  action="pprnav">
 <f:attribute name="node"
    value="#{navigationContext.
    defaultNavigationModel.
    rootNode.children[2]"/>
</af:commandLink>

#{navigationContext.defaultNavigationModel.node['path']}

Returns a node (of type NavigationResource) based on the path specified (you do not need "/" prefix unless you are requesting the root node, for example, '/')

Example:

#{navigationContext.defaultNavigationModel.node['home/page1']}

#{navigationContext.defaultNavigationModel.currentSelection}

Returns currently selected navigation resource.

#{navigationContext.defaultNavigationModel.newCurrentSelection['path']}

Sets the current selection to a node specified by the given path (you do not need "/" prefix unless you are requesting the root node, for example, '/'). If successful, returns the newly selected node of type NavigationResource.

The user must have the ability to explicitly set the current selection without having to actually navigate to a node.

This can be used where the user enters a page directly, and no selection is set. It provides a mechanism for the user to control what is the default when there is no current selection.

Example:

<c:set  value="${navigationContext.defaultNavigationModel.newCurrentSelection['home/page1']}"
 var="currSel" scope="session"/>
<c:if test="${currSel!=null}">
 <af:forEach items="#{currSel.children}"
  var="cnode" varStatus="cnodestatus">
...</c:if>

#{navigationContext.defaultNavigationModel.attributes.Description}

#{navigationContext.defaultNavigationModel.attributes['Description']}

Returns the value of the specified attribute of the navigation model.

Navigation Resource Expressions

 

#{node.attributes.Description}

#{node.attributes['Description']}

Returns the value of the specified attribute of the navigation resource.

#{node.path}

Returns the path to the navigation resource.

#{node.externalURL}

Returns the URL for the navigation resource of type External Link.

#{node.prettyUrl}

Returns the identifying path for this navigation resource.

#{node.prettyUrlPath}

#{node.prettyUrlPath[N]}

Returns a collection of identifying paths by depth to enable its use as a starting path to drive another navigation view.

For example, assuming the currentSelection is home/company/products/applications, the following EL returns home/company/products:

#{node.prettyUrlPath[3]}

#{node.goLinkPretty Url}

Returns the identifying path for this navigation resource suitable for goLink destination

<af:goLink id="pt_gl2" text="#{node.title}"
   destination="#{node.goLinkPrettyUrl}"
   targetFrame="#{node.attributes['Target']}"
   inlineStyle="font-size:small;#{node.selected ?
   'font-weight:bold;' : ''}"/>

#{node.separator ? ... : ...}

Returns whether this resource is a separator item.

#{node.navigable ? ... : ...}

Returns whether it is possible to navigate to this resource.

#{node.selected ? ... : ...}

Returns whether this resource is currently selected.

#{node.currentlySelected ? ... : ...}

Returns whether the resource is the currently selected resource and the model is the currently selected model.

#{node.onSelectedPath ? ... : ...}

Returns whether this node lies on the selected path. This is useful for highlighting the selected tab, for example.

For example, assuming the currently selected node is home/company/products/applications, the following EL highlights the home tab.

<c:set  value="${navigationContext.defaultNavigationModel.node['home']}"
 var="home" scope="session"/>
  <af:commandImageLink id="cil1"
    icon="#{(home.onSelectedPath) ?
    '/images/caremark/nav/HomeSelected.png' :
    '/images/caremark/nav/HomeIcon.png'}"
    actionListener="#{navigationContext.processAction}"
    action="pprnav">
  <f:attribute name="node" value="#{home}"/></af:commandImageLink>

#{node.leaf ? ... : ...}

Returns whether this resource is a leaf node.

#{node.parent}

Returns the parent node (of type NavigationResource) of this node. For the root node, null is returned.

#{node.ancestors}

Returns the hierarchy list of ancestors of this node (of type NavigationResource) starting with the root node.

For example, assuming the current node is home/company/products/applications, the following ELs return the following values:

  • #{node.ancestors[1]} returns the node for home

  • #{node.ancestors[3]} returns the node for home/company/products

#{node.depth}

Returns the depth of this node from the root node. Root node has a depth of zero.

#{node.siblings}

Returns the list of siblings (of type NavigationResource) of this node (inclusive).

#{node.nextSibling}

Returns the next sibling in the list (of type NavigationResource) of this node.

For example, the following code ensures that you do not output two separators in a row:

<c:if test="${(node.separator) && (!node.nextSibling.separator}">
  <af:separator id="s166"/>
</c:if>

#{node.previousSibling}

Returns the previous sibling in the list (of type NavigationResource) of this node.

#{node.index}

Returns the zero-relative index of this node relative to its siblings.

#{node.children}

#{node.children[N].title}

#{node.children[N].children[N].title}

Returns a collection of child resources.

#{node.childCount}

Returns the number of children of this node.

#{node.childByIndex['index']}

Returns the child node (of type NavigationResource) specified by the zero-relative index

If not found, this returns null.

#{node.childByPath['admin']}

Returns the child node (of type NavigationResource) specified by the path relative to this node

The path can be deeper than one level and does not need the '/' prefix. If not found, this returns null.

Table G-10 EL Expressions Relevant to the Personalization Service

Expression Function

#{p13nContext.reset}

Clears the state of the context object in which it is invoked.

Other examples:

#{p13nContext.conductor['ConductorConnection'].reset} 
#{p13nContext.conductor['ConductorConnection'].namespaces['MyNamespace'].reset}
#{p13nContext.properties['PropertiesConnection'].namespaces['MyNamespace'].setDefinitions['MyPropertySetDefinition'].set['MyPropertySet'].reset}

#{p13nContext.properties['PropertiesConnection'].namespaces['MyNamespace'].setDefinitions['MyPropertySetDefinition'].set['MyPropertySet'].update}

Updates the property set with new values if bound to a form.

The update method applies only to the context PropertySetContext, and can be called onlyas part of a form-based action.

#{p13nContext.properties['PropertiesConnection'].namespaces['MyNamespace'].setDefinitions['MyPropertySetDefinition'].set['MyPropertySet'].results}

Retrieves the results of the context object. In the case of PropertySetContext, it retrieves the property set by name and property set definition, if they exist.

In the case of ScenarioExecutionContext and ParameterizedScenarioExecutionContext, the scenario results are retrieved.

Other examples:

#{p13nContext.conductor['ConductorConnection'].namespaces['MyNamespace'].scenario['MyScenario'].results}
#{p13nContext.conductor['ConductorConnection'].namespaces['MyNamespace'].scenario['MyScenario'].withInput['input1=val1;input2=value2;input3=value3'].results} 

#{p13nContext.conductor['PropertiesConnection'].namespaces['MyNamespace'].scenario['MyScenario'].results}

Executes a scenario by name.

#{p13nContext.conductor['ConductorConnection'].namespaces['MyNamespace'].scenario['MyScenario'].withInput['input1=val1;input2=value2;input3=value3'].results}

Executes a scenario by name with input parameters. Input parameters must be in the following format:

<paramOne>=<valueOne>;<paramTwo>=<valueTwo>;<paramThree>=<valueThree> 

Where each parameter name and value is separated by semicolon.

The withInput method applies only to the context ScenarioExecutionContext.

#{p13nContext.conductor['ConductorConnection'].namespaces[myManagedBean.namespace].scenario[myManagedBean.scenario].isError}

Determines if an error has occurred in the current context object.

The isError method applies only to PropertySetContext and ~ScenarioExecutionContext.

Other examples:

#{p13nContext.properties['PropertiesConnection'].namespaces['MyNamespace'].setDefinitions['MyPropertySetDefinition'].set['MyPropertySet'].isError}

#{p13nContext.conductor['ConductorConnection'].namespaces['myManagedBean.namespace'].scenario['myManagedBean.scenario'].errorMessage}

Returns the error message if an error has occurred in the current context object.

The errorMessage method applies only to PropertySetContext and ~ScenarioExecutionContext.

Other examples:

#{p13nContext.properties['PropertiesConnection'].namespaces['MyNamespace'].setDefinitions['MyPropertySetDefinition'].set['MyPropertySet'].errorMessage}
