(Slides for) Instant Agility in Oracle Fusion Middleware through Design Time @ Run Time (Oracle Open World 2011)0
Agility is about ability to adapt. Enterprises need to quickly respond to changing circumstances and requirements. Agility is a state of mind (â€œembrace changeâ€) that must be supported by process and technology. This session will demonstrate how Fusion Middleware provides a substantial dose of instant agility through its design time @ run time facilities. Application Management evolves into Application Composition as BPM and SOA Suite applications allow run time editing of business logic, human tasks and process definitions. Likewise, ADF applications, especially when integrated with UCM and WebCenter, support run time editing of content, page composition and even security, data sources and visualizations – even customized per user group.
This presentation introduces the concept of Design Time at Run Time, the benefits it may offers and the consequences it may (or will) have on an organization. The various run time edit hooks are discussed as well as the underlying architecture based on MDS and the future roadmap.
Op maandag 19 september zal er bij AMIS een Oracle Open World Preview sessie worden gehouden. Een groot deel van de Nederlanders die het dit jaar gelukt is om aanwezig te zijn als spreker op Oracle Open World zullen hun presentaties geven in Nieuwegein. AMIS-ers Lucas Jellema, Alex Nuijten, Peter Ebell en Aino Andriessen zullen in drie parallel sessies presentaties verzorgen. Daarnaast zullen andere Nederlandse presentatoren – zie hieronder de lijst met sprekers – presentaties verzorgen.

The recently announced acquisition of FatWire by Oracle is leading to interesting new options for customers looking for dynamic, interactive, multi-channel & device end user facing web sites – ideally with integration with enterprise systems. FatWire does most of the former and the WebCenter platform along with other FWM products provide the latter.
FatWire will be folded into WebCenter – as WebCenter Sites – to be integrated with other areas in WebCenter – such as Content (pka UCM), Connect (Social Networking capabilities) and Portal (typically internal-facing enterprise portal) and indirectly SOA Suite and BPM for Web Services and (perhaps) Business Processes in which external users can also perform tasks.
Shortly to follow – a book review – Oracle WebCenter 11g PS3 Administration Cookbook by Yannick Ongena (Packt Publishing, 2011)0
Hot off the press (well, that is what you always will have with printing on demand I suppose) I received an electronic copy (not off the press after all) of Oracle WebCenter 11g PS3 Administration Cookbook by Yannick Ongena (Packt Publishing, 2011). WebCenter has been one of my favorite Oracle products – I presented for example on WC as early as 2007 on the ODTUG conference. Yannick’s book promises many interesting and valuable tips, recipes and best practices – born from extensive real life experience.
I first came across Yannick through his great blog: http://www.yonaweb.be/. If the book lives up to the expectations set by the blog, I can heartily recommend it. But let me first go and read it. I will post a review shortly.

There are several ways available to integrate content from UCM in Web Applications. The best known one is probably through the WebCenter Document Services (taskflows that can directly be embedded in ADF weg pages), using the Content Repository connection and Data Control. This approach requires a WebCenter License. Another ways is purely programmatic, through the RIDC API. This way is demonstrated by Andrejus in his article http://andrejusb.blogspot.com/2010/12/oracle-ucm-11g-remote-intradoc-client.html. The RIDC way requires a little more work to integrate into the web application. The RIDC API is also available through web services.
Another way that is based on the Open WCM tags makes it very to integrate content in web pages – an not just the content itself: also the functionality to edit the content from within the context of the run-time web pages.
This article describes how to use the Open WCM tags to embed resources that are maintained in the UCM Content Server in ADF Faces applications.
It took me a while. I have read through at least a dozen different articles. Probably did many things that in hindsight were not necessary. But at last I got it to work: my ADF + WebCenter application is running and contacting the UCM Content Server that runs on a different (Virtual Machine) and actually displaying content.
If for no other purpose than my own future reference, I have listed here the steps I went through. Only then will I be able to relax and start enjoying the weekend…
The start situation consists of a server (virtual machine) with WLS 11g (PS3) and UCM (PS3) installed. A second server contains JDeveloper 11g PS3 with the WebCenter extensions. A new WebCenter Portal application is created in this JDeveloper environment. My desire: to add UCM based content to this application.
Here are the steps:
