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:
The Patch Set 3 release of Oracle Fusion Middleware hit the streets a few days back. For many of the FMW components, this release is one that fixes bugs, stabilizes, provides better integration and perhaps adds a feature or two. Nothing major really. However, for WebCenter this Patch Set 3 is pretty substantial, in terms of new functionality! Especially when it comes to ‘design time @ run time’ and the availability of services around social networking and collaboration as well as content integration, PS3 is quite impressive. In a recent article I demonstrated one of the PS3 Design Time at Run Time features: ‘create data controls at run time’: http://technology.amis.nl/blog/10555/webcenter-11gr1-ps3-design-time-at-run-time-with-a-vengeance-introducing-run-time-data-controls-and-data-visualizations.
This article discusses another interesting piece of functionality that hands over control to run time administrators, content editors and perhaps even end users: the Polls Service. Through the Polls Service, surveys or polls can be created at run time. Questions can be defined, the results can be analyzed and administration facilities are provided – such as when the poll opens and closes More >
The Patch Set 3 for SOA Suite 11g R1 that was released last weekend brings bug fixes, stabilization, further integration between components and a bunch of new features. Most of them not spectacular, but quite useful all the same. More to please users of the product than perhaps potential buyers…
A few of these new features for the BPEL component are highlighted in this article – and are the first small deviations from the screenshots and the detailed guidelines that I have written in the SOA Suite 11g Handbook.
For BPEL the key new features are: BPEL 2.0 support (design time, as run time support apparently was available for a bit longer), variable initialization (as part of that BPEL 2.0 support)and a way (way, way) better Assign dialog! (read on, that is a must see).
