A few months back, in August, I received an electronic copy of the book: “Oracle WebCenter 11g PS3 Administration Cookbook” by Yannick Ongena (Packt Publishing, 2011). I promised you then you write a review on it and now I finally deliver on that promise.
Main conclusion: if you want to get started with WebCenter 11g, this book will help you take your first steps on many of the most important areas of Web Center (Portal). The recipes in the book provide clear instructions on getting things going. Where the Web Center documentation can be a little overwhelming – the Web Center Developer’s Guide has 69 chapters and presumably over 1500 pages of content – Yannick’s book is clear, straightforward and easy to follow.
I am not exactly sure about the intended reader for the book. The title and Yannick’s introduction mention Administration and a technical person responsible for administration. Many recipes however discusses topics and tasks I would associate with developers. So presumably both administrators and developers will benefit from the book. Note that the traditional roles of developer, administrator and end user are not as clearly defined with Web Center Portal: business or end More >
Manage Agility through Manage-ability â€“ Introducing Design Time at Run Time in Oracle Fusion Middleware0
Below is my presentation from the OGH DBA, SOA & BPM Day on November 8th. My talk was about achieving instant agility with application, through the ability to manipulate behavior and look & feel of applications at run time. And also to provide various flavors – parallel versions – of the application through customization.
Oracle Fusion Middleware has built-in infrastructure to provide run time agility as well as customization. This infrastructure is commonly referred to as ‘design time at run time’ (and lately also the Fusion Extension Platform). It is based on MDS (meta data services) Repository and a bunch of run time, WYSIWYG tools: the composers.
To make agility work through design time at run time, it is adamant that organizations clearly define the roles and the process associated with it. And finding staff to play the role of ‘run time application editor’ will not be easy.
(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.
