Character "*" is appended When Trying to Override EQUALS With STARTSWITH Operator In Table Filtering (Doc ID 2633440.1)

Last updated on APRIL 12, 2024

Applies to:

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


An ADF application has a page with an <af:table> component based upon a View Object Data Control.
The View Object has attributes based on LOV.
When filtering the table the EQUALS operator is applied, but STARTS_WITH operator is needed to be used.
Therefore, the used operator has been overridden by implementing the VOViewImpl Java class.

When filtering the table on LOV-based columns, even though the returned values are consistent with what was entered in the filter, after the expected values are returned, the text in the filter is replaced with the same text plus a "*" appended to it.
This happens only the first time filtering is performed in the session. All the other filterings are not affected by this behavior. That is. once per session <af:column> filter criteria item gets "*" appended to user criteria.
No "*" should be appended to the text in the filter.
