ADFm: Data Controls and Data Bindings
The ADF Model implements two concepts in JSR-227 that enable decoupling the UI technology from the business service implementation. This technology has two parts:
Declarative bindings describe and manage the characteristic interactions between specific kinds of UI components (View and Controller layers) and the methods provided by a Business Service (Model layer).
Data controls provide supplemental metadata about the Business Service’s capabilities and constraints as well as a simple interface to normalize typical transactional interactions with the service.
