There are changes in the look and feel of the Oracle Communications Documentation in the Oracle Help Center. These standardized changes are inline with the look and feel of other

Oracle Products Documentation (e.g. Oracle Fusion Middleware etc.) in the Oracle Help Center.

 


Some of the significant changes are listed below:-

 

- Removal of the option which downloads a zip file that includes all the formats published for that library, including HTML, PDF, ePub, and Mobi :

- Instead, from any page that lists books, we can now open or download a PDF, ePub, or Mobi version (as available) of each book by clicking the "Download As" icon.

 

An example screen is shown below :

- Within the HTML version of each book, there is a "Download" button that provides the same options, as mentioned in the above point :

 

 

- You can also share the documentation links through Social Networking sites options, as shown below :

New format is applicable for the new releases of the Communications Products and changes will happen incrementally for upcoming releases. The products for which the documentation has been reformatted can be identified by the absence of the "Download" option, next to the "View" option in the top level documentation page.

The changes to take effect already started from late June 2015.


Note: Currently these changes are not applied to Oracle Communications Products that do not release documentation in HTML format.
