To enable external RSS news feeds in your WebCenter applications, you need to set up a proxy server by using Fusion Middleware Control or WLST.
SO,i recommend you to set up a proxy server as mentioned below.
20.2 RSS Prerequisites
20.3 Setting Up a Proxy Server for External RSS News Feeds
While it looks like a timeout issue, the root cause is a missing proxy setup to view
any external feeds.
If you don't know the proxy information for your environment, contact your network administrator.
Thanks for the reply.
Can you also tell me how will the output look like on UI after implementation? Does it display all the updates?
Is there any example for this?
I am not having any example but you can implement the RSS feature in Webcenter.
You can try the following steps after implement a proxy host and proxy port so you can implement the RSS feature in Webcenter.
* Add an RSS Feed from the Catalog
* editing the component and add the following url
* RSS Feed URL = http://rss.news.yahoo.com/rss/topstories
Use the following as an example:
proxyHost='<Company Proxy url>',proxyPort='nn'
Navigate to the (Webcenter_Home) directory where the wlst command exists:
Connect to the server:
Set the Proxy Host and Port:
setRssProxyConfig(appName='webcenter', proxyHost='<Company Proxy url>',proxyPort='nn')
For more information,review the document which i have pointed to you in my last update.
I need one more help. I understand that we need to setup a proxy server in WLST or FM control before using RSS component in portal.
I am totally new to this, can you pls tell me what port and host name I need to supply? what exact values I need to pass? Is this proxy server related to the RSS feed I am invoking or something else?
Your help is appreciated.
You need to provide the Proxy Host and port on which the proxy server is running.
If you don't know the proxy information for your environment,Please check with your network administrator.
Looks like our cpy do not have any Proxy Server - can we set up RSS feed without the Proxy Server?
To enable external RSS news feeds in WebCenter Portal or a Portal Framework application, you must set up a proxy server.
A proxy server is also required if you want to display external links in Activity Stream task flows. Both RSS and the activity stream share the same proxy server settings.
You can configure a proxy server by using either Fusion Middleware Control or WLST. For information, see Section 8.2.4, "Setting Up a Proxy Server."
