Service Builder Application Demonstrating Actionable Dynamic Query

This sample is similar to the basic Service Builder sample, which lets you perform CRUD (create, read, update, delete) operations on service builder entities. The distinctive feature of the Service Builder Actionable Dynamic Query (ADQ) sample is that it also lets you perform a mass update on all existing service builder entities.

Figure 1: This sample provides options to add entities and perform a mass update.

To see the ADQ Service Builder sample in action, complete the following steps:

  1. Add the sample to a page by navigating to Add (Add) → WidgetsSample and dragging it to the page.

  2. Select the app’s Add button and add an entity. Do this several times to create multiple entities.

  3. Click the Mass Update button and click Save to invoke the update.

    Figure 2: Clicking the Save button executes the mass update.

    Figure 2: Clicking the *Save* button executes the mass update.

    After invoking the update, each entity’s field3 value (whose value is less than 100) is incremented.

You’ve leveraged the actionable dynamic query API in your sample!

What API(s) and/or code components does this sample highlight?

This sample demonstrates Liferay DXP’s actionable dynamic query API. Specifically, it demonstrates how to create an ADQ, add criteria to an ADQ, specify an action for the ADQ, and execute the ADQ.

How does this sample leverage the API(s) and/or code component?

An action request is sent to the JSPPortlet with a cmd request parameter. When the JSPPortlet’s processAction method processes the request, the value of the cmd parameter is parsed and then the portlet’s massUpdate method is invoked. The massUpdate method, in turn, invokes the massUpdate method defined in the adq-service module’s BarLocalServiceImpl. This is where the sample leverages the actionable dynamic query API:

public void massUpdate() {
    ActionableDynamicQuery adq = getActionableDynamicQuery();

        new ActionableDynamicQuery.AddCriteriaMethod() {

            public void addCriteria(DynamicQuery dynamicQuery) {
                dynamicQuery.add("field3", 100));


        new ActionableDynamicQuery.PerformActionMethod<Bar>() {

            public void performAction(Bar bar) {
                int field3 = bar.getField3();




    try {
    catch (Exception e) {
