New article: Overview of the ADF security model. This article describes the different artifacts which are used to specify the access rights in an Oracle ADF application. It is basically a high level overview of the data stored in the src/META-INF/jazn-data.xml file.
The following diagram shows an overview of the managed bean memory scopes, and the corresponding expression language references, supported by Oracle ADF. See "What You May Need to Know About Memory Scope for Task Flows" at Creating a Task Flow for additional information.
When the default domain for the internal weblogic server is created by JDeveloper, the password for the embedded LDAP server is automatically generated and can not be retrieved.

Open the weblogic administration console (like localhost/console), and navigate to the default domain:
Then, select the "Security" Tab:
From there, open the "Embedded LDAP" sub-tab:
Finally choose a new password and save it with the "save" button at the bottom of the page:
This does not have any impact on running and deploying the application, but will now allow access from external tools like JExplorer.
Note that the WebLogic server needs to be restarted for the change to take effect.
