ADF Life Cycle in Action: Step 3
Apply Input Values
This phase handles the request parameters, if any, that have been either posted from an HTML form or added to the URL. From the request parameters, a list of events is built with their possible associated action binding. In addition, this phase resolves the list of request parameters that apply to the list of attribute bindings in the page definition. The result is an updatedValues list, which is a list of bindings that need to be updated with new values. This list is used in the Update Model Values phase.
Validate Input Values
In this phase, the updatedValues list built by the Apply Input Values phase is validated by the model.
