    content server

    user1254328

      Hello  -

      jdev 12.2.1.3.

      If we are working on adf bc based application then typically we create a database schema connection within the IDE ( Right click connection --> database --> etc ). Then when we create ADF BC Entity Objects in the wizard by selecting the DB connection created earlier that let us see all the database tables to select within Entity Object wizard. Then u create VO etc.

       

      Now - if we are working on Oracle Content server ( UCM )  in Jdev then we will create IDE Right click connection --> WebCenter Content Server --> etc. --> Is this ONLY thing we need to do in order to be able to start using CP taskflow along with CMIS ?  How would the CP taskflow know which content server to use to fetch the documents ? In short how would CP taskflow and CP template know which Content Server datasource  to use ?

          Hi,

           

          In Oracle WebCenter Portal 12c the usage of WebCenter Framework Libraries is not supported.

           

          Oracle WebCenter Portal - Content integration is well described in the official documentation

          https://docs.oracle.com/en/middleware/webcenter/portal/12.2.1.3/admin/managing-connections-oracle-webcenter-content-serv…

          https://docs.oracle.com/en/middleware/webcenter/portal/12.2.1.3/build/enabling-document-management.html#GUID-1548FD45-B0…

           

          So, when Document Management is enabled in a Portal, automatically it search for the default content repository connection configured. (So Content Manager Task Flow and Content Presenter takes the default connection configured).

           

          In the past, in Framework Portal 11g it was the default connection you configured in JDeveloper with your Portal Application. However, Oracle WebCenter Portal (formerly Spaces) is a pre-built WebCenter Application which does not take this into consideration.

           

          Summary:

          • Follow the links above to understand Portal - Content Integration
          • Once you have enabled the Integration you can Edit your Portal Pages to add Content Manager Task Flow or Content Presenter for working with Content.


          Kind regards.

            what if we want to test these locally in jdev first? Does that mean you wont be ( or not recommended ) able to test the CP TaskFlow ( and the custom multi item display template u created ) at design time in jdev just to see if everything is working as expected BEFORE u deploy these artifacts to portal and see them at run time ?

              Hi,


              As mentioned before WebCenter Framework was removed from 12c Integrated WebLogic.

              You can always publish your Portal Assets to a Dev environemnt which is instant. I do not see why the need of testing a Content Presenter locally.

               

              If you are still thinking testing locally then create an ADF Application with a Page Template (same as the Portal one you developed without Portal taglibs used) and then embed the HTML or Mock your HTML of content presenter to see how it will look.

               

              Anyway I would recommend you use a Dev Portal Environemnt where you can publish / un-publish your CP templates.

               

              Kind regards.
