In version 22.01 we introduced a new data palette in the Oracle Visual Builder design editor. The data palette shows services and business objects that are part of your application and allows you to drag them onto the visual editor (or the code editor, or the structure pane) to create UI components that maps to them. This is a great way to accelerate creation of forms that interact with data. While in the past, unless you started with a table/list on a page, you needed to manually create the types, variables, UI components and actions and then connect them all together to create single record update/insert pages – this is achievable with a simple drag and drop. You are of course free to change the code that was created as you wish.
If you want to better understand the inner working of these forms that interact with POST/PUT/PATCH endpoint, you can review a past blog post that covered the manual steps for setting it up. As you’ll see the new data palette indeed makes development much faster. But in the background, you get the same building blocks created for you. These simplify the way you pass the “body” to these endpoints. Read the complete article here.
