Bootstrap Configuration Files

The top level XML source files in an application are known as the application’s bootstrap configuration files. The content and loading mechanism for each file mimics faces-config.xml, the XML source file used in JSF navigation. When you create a new ADF unbounded task flow, JDeveloper automatically adds an entry into adfc-config.xml to include the task flow it in the bootstrap list.Bootstrap XML source files are loaded when an application is first started. The files can contain:

■ ADF navigation metadata for an ADF unbounded task flow

■ ADF activity metadata for an ADF unbounded task flow

■ Managed bean definitions used by ADF activities

The main bootstrap XML source file is usually named
adfc-config.xml. A single web application can have multiple top level XML source files, which are loaded when application is first started. Although the bootstrap XML source files can be implemented as separate physical files, they are all considered the same logical file at runtime.

You can add additional bootstrap XML source files in the Metadata Resources list. To access the list, click the Overview tab for adfc-config.xml or some other bootstrap configuration file, then click Metadata Resources.

The central configuration file for all of ADF is adf-config.xml. This file contains sections that configure different ADF components, for example, ADF Controller behavior such as save for later.

ClassNotFoundException: oracle.adf.model.servlet.ADFBindingFilter When deploy

By W.ZH May 15 2009Problem:  This is another anoying issue that our new WLS server has: When you create a new project, running fine with the Jdev’s server.. then you packed and ready to deploy in war/ear file.. to the standalone WLS 10.3 (ADF runtime install already), But deploy failed with the error of Caused by: java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: oracle.adf.model.servlet.ADFBindingFilter.

Reason: can not explain, should be a bug that for new versions among the jdev and WLS.

Solution:  Only solution that you can find now is at]  But takes a bit time to clear over there. The correct way is that you should find the jar files of adfmweb.jar, adfm.jar, adfdt_common.jar from your jdev folder, and then copy them to the domain’s lib folder of your WLS… after that you need to restart your weblogic domain . then try to deply again, OK, Done!

I should be working as WLS consultant!

How to start the WLST in command

For WLS 10.3, From the link of you try to use the WLST, it can not run . why?

Try this:

[yourlinux]$. ./

two periods with a space, then

java weblogic.WLST


A stupid way to solve also can be

try this ….in your $WLHOME/comon/bin you should have a …try using that …if it still doesn’t work…..then as you said you can run a script.. if you want to still use interactive mode…in the script just try to connect to a server and run the script as

In a shell script contents:


java weblogic.WLST -i <script>.py

and the contents as:


and then run the shell script….

this will connect to the server and the wlst session will not end so you can use it in interavtive mode now……….

this is just a work around not a solution…….
