In this quick demonstration I show the steps of setting up the WebCenter development environment:
- Installing Oracle JDeveloper Studio Edition 11gR1 (22.214.171.124.0)
- Installing the WebCenter Extension for Oracle JDeveloper using Help > Check for Updates
- Confirming that the installation succeeded
While setting up the development environment is very quick and easy, there are still a lot of things that you as a developer can try out without any additional installation.
- Build and consume portlets: The Integrated WebLogic Server that ships with JDeveloper contains a portlet container and sample portlets that you can deploy your portlets to.
- Build customizable applications with Oracle Composer: The customization data is saved by Metadata Services (MDS). In a development environment we use the file system repository, by default.
- Integrate content: In a development environment, very often we use the file system adapter to test content integration using Java Content Repository (JCR – aka: JSR 170), or the Document Library task flows.
- Add Tagging and Linking: If you have an Oracle XE database, you can install the WebCenter database schema and incorporate tagging and linking as well.
- Integrate Email: If your company has an IMAP4 or a MS Exchange server, you can surface your email by connecting to your server using the Email connection and task flow.
