In the case of the “partition” configuration, we only have one configuration file per application. ADF Faces looks for this file, named “adf-js-partitions.xml”, in the “WEB-INF” directory of the web application. If no such file is found, ADF Faces falls back to a default partition configuration that it provides. The default partitioning is meant to provide reasonable behavior for most applications, though application developers are welcome to optimize as needed for their application.
Now that we’ve got all of this information available, how is it actually put to use?
