The Oracle WebCenter 11g Handbook: Build Rich, Customizable Enterprise 2.0 Applications is now available in online stores and possibly in your nearest book store too.
If you are evaluating the WebCenter Framework, Social Computing Services, or are simply curious what WebCenter is all about – flipping through the book is a pretty time and cost effective way of getting the big picture. If you are using WebCenter, there are a lot of samples that walk you through the capabilities.
Here is some extra information that may help you decide if this is the right book for you. The high level table of contents is at the bottom of the post, and here is the detailed TOC. This is a podcast (mp3), published by McGraw Hill about the book. And here is a sample chapter from a snap shot taken shortly before the book went to print, so it’s very close to the actual one in the book: Chapter 11 – Runtime Customization.
Last, but not least, if you’re an e-book reader person, you can buy it for the kindle as well.
