The new version of Oracle ADF/JDeveloper 18.104.22.168 added a new UI component to ADF Faces called af:inputSearch. This component provides a new way to display and interact with list of values. One advantage it offers is that search for values in the list is done completely on the client – reducing network traffic between the client and the server.
The component relies on a list of values it gets in a JSON format from a REST endpoint. You could use an ADF BC REST exposed list – or any other random REST service that returns an array.
In the demo below I show you how to setup and use such a component in your application leveraging a REST service that lists information about countries. Read the complete article here.
