An ADF task flow includes the view activities and control flow rules that define an application's page flow. There are two types of task flows: bounded and unbounded. A bounded task flow has a single entry point and zero or more exit points; it contains its own set of private control flow rules, activities, and managed beans. An unbounded task flow is for top-level application flows; it consists of all activities and control flows in an application that are not included within any bounded task flow. A typical application is a combination of an unbounded and one or more bounded task flows.
You will first create an ADF task flow diagram that defines the flow of your application: a welcome page, and pages that display product and stock information.
To begin creating a task flow, you will open the blank task flow diagram created by default when you used the Fusion Web Application template. In the Application Navigator, expand the ViewController project, Web Content and Page Flows folders, and double-click adfc-config.xml to open it in the diagrammer. You can also create task flows using the Create ADF Task Flow dialog.
You will create control flow cases by drawing them on your ADF task flow diagram. By doing this you will be adding control flow (navigation) rules to the configuration file for your application.
