Oracle Syndication Server is an extensible content syndication server designed to syndicate any Internet content to any Internet subscriber, using any Internet communication protocol in a secure way. It provides extensibility at multiple levels; it supports all available communication mechanisms with the content subscriber, including the Information and Content Exchange (ICE) Version 1.1 protocol, while it allows access using a multitude of channels to Internet resources, enterprise portals, corporate databases, and conventional file systems. Oracle Syndication Server features a comprehensive administration system to persistently maintain subscriptions and profiles for subscribers and content providers. Subscribers can choose to actively request content from Oracle Syndication Server, or have it automatically delivered to them.


This guide is for developers who want to easily and more quickly develop and manage content subscription services for subscribers accessing information from content providers. An understanding of Oracle9i, Oracle Dynamic Services, Java, and XML is required.
