ADF ( Azure Data Factory ) interview questions for freshers/ADF Interview Questions and Answers for Freshers & Experienced

What is the Role Of Vo, Eo, and Am?

View object: View objects view the changes made by the user to the projects of Taskflows. VO helps the system to sort out the actions performed by the user. And organizes, filters, and manages the task, so that SQL queries could easily find out the results when searched for.

Entity object: An entity object is a row in a database. Similar to EJB in the J2EE, EO is the ADF. EO also makes it easier for recognizing the values in the row. It enclosed the entire row under a certain specified value. So it becomes easier to search for any value in the row. Even two EOs can be related to each other and can be grouped based on their relationship with one another. These related EOs are known to be Entity Associations.

Application module: An application module helps the client to access their work through the platform. AM has all the required and top-level procedures including the updated information in it. AM is known as the transactional module, as well, as it allows the client to access their own work. It also has multiple VO and Entity Associates in the View link form.

Can an entity object be based on two Database Objects(tables/views) or two Webservices?

No, Directly it's not possible to create EO using multiple tables.
Entity objects will always have a one-to-one relationship with a database object or web service.
But using views you can create Entity Objects on multiple tables.

Can we change the DB connection for any particular AM?

YES, follow steps to change DB connection:

1. Double click on AM.
2. GO to the configuration tab, click on configuration file bc4j.xml
3. Here we have attribute JDBCName under element AppModuleConfig, change the connection which is created for other DB.

Explain the Data Control Palette hierarchy?

Data Control Palette hierarchy: The Data Control Palette displays two types of actions:
Actions that typically operate on all data collections in the current web page’s binding context (such as Commit and Rollback) in the Operations folder at the root level of the hierarchy.
Operations on a specific data collection (for example, MyView1). Data collection-specific operations (such as Create and Delete) appear in the Operations folder as child nodes of the collection in the Data Control Palette.

Explain Data binding & its types, sub-types?

Oracle Application Development Framework (Oracle ADF) provides several types of binding objects to support the attributes and operations exposed by the Oracle ADF data controls for a particular business object:
ITERATOR BINDING, one per accessor attribute that your page or panel displays. Iterates over the business objects of the data collection and maintain the row currency and state.
VALUE BINDINGS, one for each data-bound UI component. Provides access to data.
ACTION BINDING, specifically defined for a button component. Provides access to operations defined by the business object.

Value Binding Types:

1. Attribute-Value Binding
2. Boolean Value Binding
3. List Value Binding
4. Range Value Binding
5. Scroll Value Binding

What is the role of Javascript in ADF?

* JavaScript in ADF is not used as a mandatory functionality. As the code writing in ADF is not that vital. We can use JavaScript to customize certain codes.

* While it is not necessary to use JavaScript in ADF, it is necessary to have at least the basic knowledge of the same. Knowing JavaScript would always be helpful in fixing bugs if any, while running the ADF project.

What made you opt for ADF?

<> I already had an immense interest in technology with the purpose of making a significant difference. ADF, being the core development framework, can build absolutely any type of enterprise solution. I got inclined towards this technology which is so helpful. And of course so in line with my intentions and desires.

<> Secondly, ADF is known to be the mature J2EE development framework. And hence, the Oracle Fusion Middleware stack is built upon the ADF 11g. This is why we have ample opportunities here.

<> And third is, ADF has a range of inbuilt components that sorts us with the task of code writing. This way, I can actually focus on the features of the application and how it can do more good to the business.

How to declare the page navigation (navigation rules) in faces-config.xml file in ADF 10g?

Navigation rules tells JSF implementation which page to send back to the browser after a form has been submitted. We can declare the page navigation as follows:

>> /index.jsp
>> login
>> /welcome.jsp

This declaration states that the login action navigates to /welcome.jsp, if it occurred inside /index.jsp.

Explain the two levels of security in ADLS Gen2?

The two levels of security applicable to ADLS Gen2 were also in effect for ADLS Gen1. Even though this is not new, it is worth calling out the two levels of security because it’s a very fundamental piece to getting started with the data lake and it is confusing for many people just getting started.

1. Role-Based Access Control (RBAC). RBAC includes built-in Azure roles such as reader, contributor, owner or custom roles. Typically, RBAC is assigned for two reasons. One is to specify who can manage the service itself (i.e., update settings and properties for the storage account). Another reason is to permit the use of built-in data explorer tools, which require reader permissions.

2. Access Control Lists (ACLs). Access control lists specify exactly which data objects a user may read, write, or execute (execute is required to browse the directory structure). ACLs are POSIX-compliant, thus familiar to those with a Unix or Linux background.

What Is Adfc And Adfm?

ADFc-ADF Controller :

ADFc:The controller component in ADF is an extension of the JSF navigation model and promotes modularization and reuse. In addition, ADFc provides declarative transaction handling and clearly defined process boundaries.

ADFm-ADF model :

ADFm The binding layer and model are represented by data controls and the binding container object. ADFm is built on JSR-227 and abstracts the view layer model access from the implementation details of the underlying business service.

Difference Between Backing Beans And Managed Beans?

Backing beans are JavaBeans components associated with UI components used in a page. Backing-bean management separates the definition of UI component objects from objects that perform application-specific processing and hold data.

Backing Beans are merely a convention, a subtype of JSF Managed Beans which have a very particular purpose. There is nothing special in a Backing Bean that makes it different from any other managed bean apart from its usage.What makes a Backing Bean is the relationship it has with a JSF page; it acts as a place to put component references and Event code.

Backing Beans : A backing bean is any bean that is referenced by a form. Backing Beans should be defined only in the request scope

Managed Beans : A managed bean is a backing bean that has been registered with JSF (in faces-config.xml) and it automatically created (and optionally initialized) by JSF when it is needed. The advantage of managed beans is that the JSF framework will automatically create these beans, optionally initialize them with parameters you specify in faces-config.xml.

How do I access data by using the other 80 dataset types in Data Factory?

* The Mapping Data Flow feature currently allows Azure SQL Database, Azure SQL Data Warehouse, delimited text files from Azure Blob storage or Azure Data Lake Storage Gen2, and Parquet files from Blob storage or Data Lake Storage Gen2 natively for source and sink.

* Use the Copy activity to stage data from any of the other connectors, and then execute a Data Flow activity to transform data after it’s been staged. For example, your pipeline will first copy into Blob storage, and then a Data Flow activity will use a dataset in source to transform that data.

Differences between Bounded and Unbounded task flows :

>> Bounded task flows can be secured but Unbounded can’t.
>> Bounded taskflows can accept parameter and return values but unbounded taskflows don’t support parameters
>> Bounded taskflows has a single entry point or a default activity but unbounded taskflows have multiple entry points.
>> Bounded taskflows can be called from other bounded/unbounded taskflows but unbounded cannot be called or reused.
>> Bounded taskflows support transactions unbounded don’t

What Are Validators And Convertors In Adf?

validators :

If somehow you need to create your own validation logic to meet your business needs. You can either create a validation method on the page’s backing bean (if you want custom validation for a component on a single page), or create JSF validator classes (if you want to reuse the validation logics by various pages in the application).In the real world, of course creating the custom JSF validator classes would be adopted for ADF application for better reuse and maintantence.

convertors :

converters are used for converting the values from one type to another,like decimal to bigdecimal or from string to date or date to string.

ADF Lifecycle has Nine phases as follows:

1) Initialize Context : In this phase value of associated request, binding container and lifecycle are set.

2) Prepare Model : In this phase model is prepared and initialized. In this phase page parameters are set and methods in the executable section of the page definition of the ADF page are executed.

3)Apply Input Values : This phase handles the request parameters. These may come by adding the request parameters in the URL or as a result of HTML form post action. A list of events is build using these request parameters. These are actually mapped to the bindings in the pageDef. This phase resolves the list of request parameters bind to attributes in the page def. This results into a list of updatedValues which is used in Update Model phase.

4) Validate Input Values : This phase validates the list of values built in the Apply input values field with model.

5) Update Model : After validation of input values data model is updated with the list of values created in apply input values phase.

6) Validate Model Updates : Updates in the previous phase are then validated by calling the associated lifecycle’s binding container .

7) Process Component Updates : This phase handles any events in the list built during the apply input values phase. Named events as well as all the events tied to the databindings created in the pagdef are handled in this phase.

8) Metadata Commit : This phase commits the runtime metadata changes to the model. This phase is always executed before prepare render phase.

9) Prepare Render : This is the final phase where page is sent for rendering. prepareRender event is sent to all the registered listeners. This notification signals bindings to prepare or process the data for rendering. Binding container is also refreshed. This helps in updating any changes that happened during validation phases.

What are View Objects?

View objects, which can be based on entity objects/Web Services, represent the data that you want to view and manipulate.

1. Present a view or slice of business data.
2. Are used for joining, filtering, projecting, and sorting your business data.
3. Can be based on any number of entity objects.
4. Can also be constructed from a SQL statement.

Read-only SQL –Based View Objects:

1. Is not based on any entity-based object.
2. Cannot be used for insert, update, or delete.
3. Use SQL-based view objects for query–only views, which do not need the functionality of entity objects.

What is the Business Component Tester?

The most used component of the model layer is the tester, which is used to run and check the data model that is implemented. This serves as the first line of defense to see if data is exposed as we need it and to test the data model without a need to create a UI.

Posted Date:- 2021-09-28 04:37:57

What are Association and View links?

* They define the join or the link among EO’s and VO’s. The association defines the link between EO’s. They can be considered as PrimaryKey/ForeignKey relationship between tables.

* The View link is for a VO. It defines the Join conditions. A view link can be based on an association or based on attributes, Basing view links on associations have the same advantage of entity cache and a few more which are unveiled later.

What are ADF BC(Business Components)? Describe them.

All of these features can be summarized by saying that using ADF Business Components for your J2EE business service layer makes your life a lot easier. The key ADF Business Components that cooperate to provide the business service implementation are:

1. Entity Object: An entity object represents a row in a database table and simplifies modifying its data by handling all DML operations for you. It can encapsulate business logic for the row to ensure your business rules are consistently enforced. You associate an entity object with others to reflect relationships in the underlying database schema to create a layer of business domain objects to reuse in multiple applications.

2. Application Module: An application module is a transactional component that UI clients use to work with application data. It defines an updatable data model and top-level procedures and functions (called service methods) related to a logical unit of work related to an end-user task.

3. View Object: A view object represents a SQL query and simplifies working with its results. You use the full power of the familiar SQL language to join, project, filter, sort, and aggregate data into exactly the “shape” required by the end-user task at hand. This includes the ability to link a view object with others to create master/detail hierarchies of any complexity. When end users modify data in the user interface, your view objects collaborate with entity objects to consistently validate and save the changes.

What are the different kinds of Bean Scopes in JSF?

JSF supports three Bean Scopes.

* Request Scope: The request scope is short-lived. It starts when an HTTP request is submitted and ends when the response is sent back to the client.

* Session Scope: The session scope persists from the time that a session is established until session termination.

* Application Scope: The application scope persists for the entire duration of the web application. This scope is shared among all the requests and sessions.

Posted Date:- 2021-09-28 04:33:03

What is Managed Bean?

JavaBean objects managed by a JSF implementation are called managed beans. A managed bean describes how a bean is created and managed. It has nothing to do with the bean’s functionality.

A managed bean is about how the bean is created and initialized. As you know, JSF uses the lazy initialization model. It means that the bean in the particular scope is created and initialized not at the moment when the scope is started, but on-demand, i.e. when the bean is the first time required.

What is blob storage in Azure?

Azure Blob Storage is a service for storing large amounts of unstructured object data, such as text or binary data. You can use Blob Storage to expose data publicly to the world or to store application data privately. Common uses of Blob Storage include:

* Serving images or documents directly to a browser
* Storing files for distributed access
* Streaming video and audio
* Storing data for backup and restore disaster recovery, and archiving
* Storing data for analysis by an on-premises or Azure-hosted service
