Not able to populate data from REST using Oracle JET Common Model

Ashish AwasthiApr 22 2019 — edited May 24 2019

Hello Everyone

I am trying to populate a JET table using Common Model and I have followed the approach suggested in JET MOOC Course but my table shows 'Initializing' and there is no error on browser console.

jet table.JPG

Here goes the code of EmpFactory.js file

define(['ojs/ojcore','ojs/ojmodel'], function (oj) {

var EmpFactory = {

    resourceUrl : '[](', 

    // Single Employee Model

    createEmpModel : function () {

        var emp = oj.Model.extend( {

            urlRoot : this.resourceUrl, 

            idAttribute : "DepartmentId"


        return new emp();


    // Employees Collection

    createEmployeesCollection : function () {

        var employees = oj.Collection.extend( {

            url : this.resourceUrl, 

            model : this.createEmpModel()


        return new employees();



return EmpFactory;




* Your dashboard ViewModel code goes here


define(['ojs/ojcore', 'knockout', 'EmpFactory', 'ojs/ojtable','ojs/ojcollectiontabledatasource'],

function (oj, ko, EmpFactory) {

var DashboardViewModel = {

    empCollection : EmpFactory.createEmployeesCollection(), 

    datasource : ko.observable(), 

    // Called each time the view is shown to the user:

    initialize : function () {

        this.datasource(new oj.CollectionTableDataSource(this.empCollection));




return DashboardViewModel;


and dashboard.html

<div class="oj-hybrid-padding">

\<h1>Dashboard Content Area\</h1>

\<div id="div1">

    \<oj-table id="table" summary="Department List" 

    aria-label="Departments Table" 


              columns='\[{"headerText": "Department Id",

              "field": "DepartmentId"},

              {"headerText": "Department Name",

              "field": "DepartmentName"},

              {"headerText": "Location Id",

              "field": "LocationId"},

              {"headerText": "Manager Id",

              "field": "ManagerId"}\]'>




Please let me know where I am doing wrong.
