12. Oracle JET: Caching data

Next time when you need it refer from cache.” He goes through the solution in this blog.

Debashis Paul writes, “My requirement was to add some cool effect on table row hover when you move your mouse across regular table or pivot table view in OBIEE. The advantage of this feature is, it’s cool and not distracting and it will help you to focus one row of important analysis which you can easily distinguish from the other rows.”
