As I was wandering (and wondering) around the demo grounds at Oracle OpenWorld, I bumped into a booth demonstrating the upcoming Oracle Cloud Document Service. This service is yet to be announced sometime later this week. It is a SaaS solution that can be used stand alone or can be integrated with other services. Edit: by now the Oracle Document Cloud Service has been announced in Thomas Kurian’s keynote seesion:
The core of this offering is the ability to store in and expose documents from a cloud based content system. Through a web (browser) based interface, a native app for Android and iOS and a desktop client (agent) – very similar to Dropbox or Box.com – documents can be uploaded, downloaded, searched for and versioned. A version history is kept for documents and older versions can be accessed. Documents are associated with access privileges – at various levels. Public links to individual documents (and folders?) can be handed out. The desktop client can synchronize all content or selected folders.
Some capabilities will be provided to synchronize between an on premise WebCenter Content repository and the cloud based Document Service.
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:
