I added a quick screencast to my JDeveloper / ADF Screencasts page that shows a simple example of how using the new AutoRefresh property for a view object in a shared application your application's shared LOV data can be asynchronously refreshed in the shared AM's middle tier cache whenever the database is updated. In the screencast I show performing an INSERT, UPDATE, and DELETE from a SQL*Plus window to underscore how the DB update can really be from any kind of client.
To try out the AutoRefresh feature yourself in the Tech Preview 4 release of JDeveloper/ADF 11g, you need to observe a few of the prerequisites:
- Must be running an Oracle 11g database
- It must have its COMPATIBLE parameter set to 11.1.0
- The DBA must have performed the GRANT CHANGE NOTIFICATION TO YOURACCOUNT
- Use it in the context of a web application
