tell me more icon In the IDE

The first task flow, orders-flow.xml, contains two view activities: browseOrders and editOrders, plus a control flow from browseOrders to editOrders and another in the opposite direction. It also contains a task flow return and a control flow from editOrders to commit. The first activity you dropped is the default, as indicated by the green halo or circle. Currently the task flow does not do anything: the warning ! icon on each view activity indicates that the view activity is not bound to any page. Later you will tie a page to each view activity, and add a button to each page that executes the control flow, and navigation.


The second task flow, calling-flow.xml, contains only the task flow call to the first task flow orders-flow.

You can see the rules that JDeveloper has added to the task flow file using a visual format by clicking the Overview tab at the bottom of the editor window and selecting the Control Flows navigation tab at the left, for example:

Overview editor, Control Flows page

You can see the same rules in the XML source of the task flow file by clicking the Source tab at the bottom:

In the Application Navigator, under Web Content in the ViewController project you can see the bounded task flow configuration files you created. The ViewController project in the Application Navigator also contains a default unbounded task flow, adfc-config.xml, which was added by JDeveloper when you first created the application.
