More WebCenter Goodness

Yesterday, Vince posted the third installment in his “What is WebCenter” series, and as promised, he dives into the design points with more detail.

After reading all three parts, it should be clearer that WebCenter is a lot of things and is therefore, difficult to describe in a terse manner. To date, we’ve been working to extend and tweak WebCenter Spaces using its native capabilities, mixing in a generous amount of the REST APIs.

As Rich mentions on this post on WebCenter’s REST APIs by Peter Moskovits, he’s posted some of his code to GitHub, in case you’re interested in taking a look.

Now that you know more about WebCenter, you can try it out for yourself using the OTN development licenses.

Remember my install-WebCenter opus? I chatted with some folks in product management about documenting that process and voila, there’s a new Oracle-by-Example (OBE) for installing WebCenter on Linux here.

The OBE covers all the pieces you need, including UCM, and all the steps you’ll need to take in a single place. Plus, it has lots of screen captures, which always helps me.

Good stuff.

I’m curious to know thoughts on WebCenter, now that you know what it is and how to install it.

If you’re a consultant (ahem, Chet), would you consider learning WebCenter to add to your list of skills? Why or why not?

If you’re in IT, would you consider using WebCenter internally?

I’m interested in your impressions. Find the comments and share them.
