This chapter describes the most important changes to Oracle Universal Content Management (Oracle UCM) services introduced in the Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 (11.1.1) release.
Features include the following:
Services Preview functionality: When adding a service through the Component Wizard, you can now preview details about services. Information for a service can be viewed by selecting the new Preview button in the upper right corner of the Resource Selection dialog. When the Preview Information for SERVICE_NAME dialog is display ed, the online help for that service is available by clicking the Help button.
For information about accessing this new functionality, see step 1 in Section 3.3.3, "Creating a Custom Service using Component Wizard."
Folders services includes more input parameter descriptions and examples.
Extended User Attributes component services have been added.
Folios component services have been added.
Virtual Content Repository component services have been added.
The CHECKIN_NEW service has been revised to include information about the DirectReleaseNewCheckinDoc variable, which directs content items being checked in to bypass Inbound Refinery, workflow, and indexing.
The GET_ENVIRONMENT service has been revised to include information about the StartTime variable.
The DELETE_DOC service has been revised to show that it removes all revisions of a content item, not just a single revision.
The CHECKIN_SEL service has been revised to remove inaccurate information about metadata values not specified in the service call being inherited from the previous revision. Metadata values are not inherited from the previous revision. CHECKIN_UNIVERSAL and UPDATE_DOCINFO are the two services that inherit unspecified metadata values.
Location path names have been revised to reflect the new directory and file structure for an Oracle Content Server instance deployed in an Oracle UCM domain on Oracle WebLogic Server.
Oracle UCM Directories and Files: Oracle UCM 11g Release 1 (11.1.1) is provided as part of a full media install of Oracle Enterprise Content Management Suite, with the Oracle UCM directories and files. The directory structure for an Oracle UCM 11g instance is different from an Oracle UCM 10g instance. The following terms and path names are important to understanding and working with the Oracle UCM structure:
IdcHomeDir: This variable refers to the /ucm/idc directory in the Enterprise Content Management (ECM) home where the Oracle UCM server media is located. The server media can run Oracle Content Server, Oracle Inbound Refinery, or Oracle Universal Records Management. This is essentially a read-only directory. The variable portion of the default location is ECM_ORACLE_HOME/ucm/idc. The variable portion of the default location can be changed, but the /ucm/idc portion is required.
DomainHome: This variable refers to the user-specified directory where an Oracle UCM server is deployed to run on an Oracle WebLogic Server application server. The DomainHome/ucm/short-product-id/bin directory contains the intradoc.cfg file and executables. The default location for DomainHome is MW_HOME/user_projects/domains/base_domain, but you can change the path and domain name (
base_domain) during the deployment of Oracle UCM to Oracle WebLogic Server.
short-product-id: This variable refers to the type of Oracle UCM server deployed on an Oracle WebLogic Server. Possible values are:
cs (Oracle Content Server)
ibr (Oracle Inbound Refinery)
urm (Oracle Universal Records Management)
IntradocDir: This variable refers to the root directory for configuration and data files specific to an Oracle Content Server instance that is part of an Oracle UCM application deployed to an Oracle WebLogic Server domain. This Idoc Script variable is configured for one type of Oracle Content Server instance: Oracle Content Server (
cs), Oracle Inbound Refinery (
ibr), or Oracle Universal Records Management (
urm). This directory can be located elsewhere, but the default location is DomainHome/ucm/short-product-id/. The specified directory must be an absolute path to the instance directory, and it must be unique to the particular server or node.
Features removed in release 11gR1 include the following:
Collaboration Manager services have been removed because the product is not supported. Core collaboration services have been moved to the Core Services chapter. Collaboration Manager services include:
Content Publisher services have been removed because the product is no longer shipped with Oracle Universal Content Management software. Content Publisher services include:
