While formally only a patch set, from a feature perspective WebCenter 11g Patch Set 3 is a major mile stone with fundamental new capabilities. This version has been in the works for over a year and we’re very excited about it. If there’s only one thing to note about this release, than it would be the following: this is the converged portal platform with support for broad portal and extranet site use cases and incorporates the best features from all of the previously acquired portal products, including WebLogic Portal, WebCenter Interaction, fka: ALUI (fka: Plumtree), as well as Oracle Portal.
In this release WebCenter Spaces has evolved big time; but the new features that the WebCenter Portal Framework offers are more significant than ever before (more about it soon).
Main themes of the release:
- Portals & Sites
- Team & Social
- Enterprise Mashups
- Content Management
- Search & Discovery
- Desktop Integration & Mobile
- Analytics & Management
