New White Paper: Exposing WebCenter Services Task Flows as WSRP Portlets and Ensemble Pagelets

We have a new technical white paper published on OTN, written by one of our senior developers, Ken Young, that covers what it takes to expose the WebCenter Social Computing Services (discussions, email documents, etc.) through WSRP 2.0 for consumption in third party portal products. The white paper, titled Exposing WebCenter Services Task Flows as WSRP Portlets and Ensemble Pagelets comes with a sample project that makes it easy for you to follow the steps.

ADF and WebCenter Mashup: Publishing Google Gadgets with Ensemble

igoogleWith Tom Quigley we just published a new demo showcasing what it takes to publish ADF or WebCenter applications as Google Gadgets. The demo walks you through the simple steps of building an ADF application, exposing it as a Google Gadget with Ensemble, and consuming the gadget in iGoogle.

Integrating ADF with Your Applications: Ensemble Patch Set 10.3.0.1.0

enssembleviewletAs part of the Fusion Middleware 11g R1 release train, we just made an interoperability patch set available for WebCenter Ensemble (Download: Linux | Solaris | Windows).

The primary purpose of the 10.3.0.1.0 patch set is to provide support for integrating ADF applications and task flows into your applications. The patch certifies the use of the WebCenter Social Computing Services (aka: WebCenter Web 2.0 Services) with WebCenter Interaction (fka: Aqualogic Interaction (fka: Plumtree)). This patch enables WCI customers to consume ADF task flows as portlets.

This brief demo gives you a high level overview of Ensemble.

Ensemble 10.3 Released – Overview Demo

Tom Quigley just published an excellent viewlet on the brand new Ensemble 10.3. His demo highlights how straight forward it is to inject content into any web application.

Here is a brief summary of Ensemble:

Ensemble is a reverse proxy through which end users view Web applications. For example, a customer might control access to and collect analytics on their wiki by proxying it through Ensemble. They might also use Ensemble to inject existing portlets or widgets into new Web applications.

When injecting content into new applications, Ensemble users can choose between JavaScript Injection, which is widely useable but requires changes to the application source code, or Web Injection, which allows source code to remain untouched. Web Injection can also be used to tweak styles, fix JavaScript collisions, and more.
