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:
