Oracle WebCenter Portal - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When trying to create a SQL Data Control Form using UI Components and then adding the Task Flow to a page, the form data is static.
The Submit button is there, but the values cannot be changed. It is displayed as Read-Only, even though the form was created as read/write.

The following steps demonstrate the problem:

1. Login into the database  to the dev_webcenter schema

2. Create "test" table with data:
       a. create table test ( col1 varchar2(20));
       b insert into test (col1) values ('test1');
       c. commit

3. Login to WebCenter Portal

4. Administration - Shared Assets - Data Control

5. Create Data Control :
      a. Name: testDC   (of type SQL)
      b. Data Source: WebCenterDS
      c. select * from test
      d. Create
      e. Make it available  (tick Available checkbox)
6. Create a Portal and add Data Control  to catalog
     a. Create Portal
     b. Administor Portal - Assets - Resource Catalogs - Copy of Default Portal Catalog
     c. Make  the new "Copy of Default Portal Catalog" catalog available
     d. Edit "Copy of Default Portal Catalog"
     e. Add from Library:   testDC
     f. Administor Portal - Settings :  Change Resource Catalog for Pages: "Copy of Default Portal Catalog"  , Save
7. View Portal and Edit Page     

8. a. Open testDC , Drag  testDC to Page.
    b. Pop-up appears: select   Form.
