ADF BC REST service out of the box supports LOV list data. You can define LOV for ADF BC View Object attribute and use it straight away in REST service. This is especially useful when LOV list is filtered based on other attributes from current row – no need to collect and send these attributes to the service separately, filtering logic will be handled for you in ADF BC backend. One more benefit – you can reuse existing ADF BC with LOV’s implementation and expose it through REST service.
Below you can see employee #108 attributes with values returned by REST service, generated on top of ADF BC View Object. ManagerId attribute in View Object is configured with LOV list. Based on this configuration, each item in REST collection will have a link to REST resource providing LOV data (Employees/280/lov/EmployeesLovView1). For employee #108, it retrieves LOV data from VO EmployeesLovView1:
We can get LOV list entries for employee #108 by executing simple REST request, no need to specify additional parameters. Read the complete article here.
