Using AK Developer to modify Order Tracking UI
The Order Tracking page in iStore is a complex and tricky page in essence, all the details for this functionality is rendered using AK Developer. For some Oracle weaned away from its traditional use of JSPs and for a moment thought of using AK Developer – not sure what was going on in their mind. I find it very difficult to comprehend what made them develop, just this one functionalilty using AK Developer. Is it because they thought no customer will request it to be customized or they wanted to make to difficult to customize ?
Reason, its a tedious task to customize is because of the way it renders the data. All the data comes from 1 single method called AKQuery and this query looks for details set up in AK Developer Regions etc.
From AK Developer Responsibility, navigate as follows
Object Workbench –> Query for IBE_ORD_DTL_O object name –> Observe that the Database Object name is ‘IBE_ORDER_DETAIL_V’
IBE_ORDER_DETAIL_V is a view.
Modify this view for any new column that needs to show up on the Order Tracking page.
For eg. one may want to add additional labels and data, such as Shipping Instructions, we have discussed this in detail in the attached document.
