Accessing UCM through WebDAV

The other day it took me almost an hour to figure out what the UCM (fka: Stellent) WebDav URL is and how to access it from XP. Frustrating… Here it is for everybody’s benefit, including myself – for future reference.

The other thing I keep forgetting is how to define a WebDav connection under XP. Instead of simply selecting Tools > Map Network Drive in Windows Explorer (which doesn’t work for WebDav), follow these steps:

  • Navigate to My Network Places
  • Click the Folder icon in the Windows Explorer toolbar
  • Click the Add a network place link on the left
  • Provide the WebDav URL and your credentials.

WebCenter vs Stellent (UCM): blogs, wikis, and rss

Just stumbled upon Bex Huff’s summary of the recent Oracle ECM Quarterly Community Call. In his post he gives some advice on what technology to use for blogs, wikis, and RSS. Definitely worth checking it out.
