I just started learning webcenter portal few days ago, using jDeveloper 184.108.40.206.0 I followed the document "Tutorial for Oracle WebCenter Portal Developers" but stuck at "Chapter 6 Connecting to and Managing Content Repositories". In this chapter, it instructs how to create the connection to content repository but I don't have a content repository and no idea how to create it in a standalone environment. Do I need to create a content repository to follow the tutorial? I found only the document to create a content repository in a server. Is there any simple way to create it similar to the integrated weblogic provided with jDeveloper?
If you want to use "Document Services" or manage content from your WebCenter Portal or Spaces then you need to install WebCenter Content product in a machine (external or your laptop).
It's very recommendable do this part of tutorial to understand content integration.
