Docker and VirtualBox in Windows 10 Anniversary Update

Recently I installed the last version of Docker, with native support to Windows 10.
This version doesn’t need VBox to work but I have some vbox machines in my SO for other things/tasks/projects. The problem was those vboxs can’t run now.

I had this message: “VT-x is not available (VERR_VMX_NO_VMX)”

I try to disable Hyper-V in “Programs and Features” but it didn’t work

Finally the workaroud was to run bcdedit as admin and set hypervisorlaunchtype off

  • C:\WINDOWS\system32>bcdedit
  • bcdedit /set hypervisorlaunchtype off
    Reboot the SO and now run VirtualBox.  To turn Hyper-V on:
  • bcdedit /set hypervisorlaunchtype auto

Export excel with more 65K rows in ADF

When you work with a hugh number of rows with the af:exportCollectionActionListener you have a limitation about the number of rows.

This limitation is because file format.(xls). It is the maximum number of rows for the Excel 97-2003 . With xlsx format the maximum is 1M

As workaround you can build a custom export with POI or use ADF DI, a good option that I wrote about it time ago and the product has a good evolution

Integrate JET with jQuery UI

In Oracle JET we have a lot of components and we can create composite components.
But sometimes we need integrate components of the third-party libraries. In this post I explain how to integrate jQueryUI to use the components of this library.

  • Add jQueryUI library
    • ‘jqueryui’: ‘libs/jquery-ui-1.12.0/jquery-ui’
  • Add ‘jqueryui’ in require section of main.js
  • Add jQueryUI CSS in index.html
	<link rel="stylesheet" href=" //"/>
  • Add jQueryUI component in your view section html
<div data-bind="jqueryUI: {component: 'datepicker', onSelect: dateSelector}">

Note: For this post I used jQueryUI 1.12 and JET 2.1.0

Oracle JET with font icons

with  Oracle JET is very easy use font icons in our applications.

We just have to do the following

  • download the library, in this case I use fontawesome
  • Copy the entire font-awesome directory into your project.
  • add css in your index.html
    • <link href=”font-awesome-4.6.3/css/font-awesome.min.css” rel=”stylesheet” type=”text/css”/>

And then you can use the styles in your buttons or somewhere

<i class="fa fa-camera-retro"></i> fa-camera-retro

<input type="checkbox" id="buttonIcon4"
data-bind="ojComponent: {
icons: {start:'fa fa-camera-retro',
end: 'oj-fwk-icon-caret-end oj-fwk-icon'},
label: 'Toggle button with two icons'


Pagination in JET table

if you have a hughe number of rows you can add pagination in your tables with ojPagingControl.

you add it above or below your table in your html viewModule

<div id="paging" data-bind="ojComponent: {component: 'ojPagingControl', data: datasource, pageSize: 2}"/>


and in your js file of the Viewmodule

  • add  ‘ojs/ojpagingtabledatasource‘ in the define
  • change the data value in PagingTableDataSource
self.datasource(new oj.PagingTableDataSource(new oj.CollectionTableDataSource(self.DeptCol())));


As result you will see as it show below

Color lines in ADF charts

If you want change the color of lines in a dvt:lineChart because you don’t like the default colors of each chartDataItem. You can use a chartSeriesStyle inside seriesStamp.

I show a example below

       <dvt:lineChart id="lc1" var="row" value="#{bindings.vo.collectionModel}"
contentDelivery="immediate" styleClass="AFStretchWidth" zoomAndScroll="live"
dataSelection="single" title="demo">
<f:facet name="dataStamp">
<af:group id="g1">
<dvt:chartDataItem id="di1" value="#{row.value1}" group="#{}" series="custom1"/>
<dvt:chartDataItem id="di2" value="#{row.value2}" group="#{}" series="custom2" />

<f:facet name="seriesStamp">
<af:group id="g2">
<dvt:chartSeriesStyle id="css2" series="custom1" color="#ff2121" lineStyle="solid" />
<dvt:chartSeriesStyle id="css3" series="custom2" color="#f2c779" lineStyle="solid"/>

Frozen columns in table

The last week someone asked on the OTN forum how to freeze some columns in a af:table.

If you have a af:table inside a af:panelcollection you have a freeze property, but this one is managed by the user.

Another way it’s make use of frozen property in af:cloumns. In this way we can configure the frozen columns based in our rules by code.

Here you can see a sample with two first columns frozen frozencolums
