Retrieving deleted Entity Objects

I have seen a couple of use cases where developers need to iterate through the deleted Entity Objects and perform validations based on various conditions. Steve shared some pointers, which helped me to find a solution. The following code snippet may help you to identify the deleted entities.

public class EmployeesImpl extends EntityImpl {
 public ArrayList<EntityImpl> findDeletedEmployees() {
    ArrayList<EntityImpl> deletedList = 
                              new ArrayList<EntityImpl>();
    Iterator iterator =
   while (iterator.hasNext()) {
      EmployeesImpl emp = (EmployeesImpl);
       if (emp.getEntityState() 
                       == Entity.STATUS_DELETED) {
          // Keep soft ref. if worried on GC              
    return deletedList;
    // Rest of  your code goes here

How to set Bind Variable Values at runtime ?

In this post I'm sharing a couple of approaches for programmatically setting bind variables values at run time. This post is an attempt to explain 'When to use what ?'[ In case if you are familiar with 'Bind Variables' in ADF BC, please refer Section 5.10, Working with Bind Variables in Fusion Developer's Guide ]

1. Set the Bind Variable value using RowSet::setNamedWhereClauseParam(...)

You can use use the setNamedWhereClauseParam(...) method on the ViewObject interface (which extends oracle.jbo.RowSet) to set the value for bind variables. Please note this sets the value on default RowSet. In other words, this doesn't have any effect on the secondary RowSets that you/system generates.
ViewObject vo = am.findViewObject("EmployeesView1"); vo.setNamedWhereClauseParam("bindVarDeptId", new Number(10)); vo.executeQuery();
2. Set the Bind Variable value using ViewObject's VariableValueManager::setVariableValue(...)
