Oracle WebCenter Framework
Integrate Content Using the JCR Standard
today's IT deployments, structured and unstructured content is increasingly
managed through content management systems. Integrating content from these
systems usually requires custom coding against proprietary and complex APIs.
In the past, creating new applications that leveraged these content systems
has been costly and hard to maintain or upgrade.
Oracle WebCenter Framework leverages the Java Content Repository (JCR) standard
and provides an easy alternative to purely coding against JCR APIs for achieving
integration. Oracle WebCenter Framework hides the complexity of the JCR
standard behind a generic framework, making integration a simple matter
of dragging and dropping the relevant controls into your application, and
binding them to the appropriate content data control. Adapters written in
compliance with the JCR standard provide access to different backend content
Oracle WebCenter provides JCR adapters to access Oracle Content Server,
Oracle Portal, and the file system. Additionally, Oracle not only delivers
a set of adapters for third party content systems (such as EMC Documentum,
IBM Lotus Domino, and MS Sharepoint), but also supports third party adapters.
If you have content that is stored in a proprietary content system (for
example, digital media assets), you can create your own proprietary content
adapter that leverages the JCR standard, and use it with Oracle WebCenter
