14 Virtual Content Repository Services

This chapter describes the Oracle WebCenter Content services available when using and customizing Virtual Content Repository (VCR).

This chapter covers the following topics:

14.1 About Virtual Content Repository Services

Services are used by applications that work with the VCR service provider interface, which is used by the Oracle WebLogic Portal as a way to expose content from different repositories. The Content Server application supports VCR functionality.

Note:

VCR services are supported only when used with Contribution Folders (provided by the Folders_g component). VCR services are not supported with Folders (provided by the FrameworkFolders component). For information about Contribution Folders services, see Chapter 7.

Information about what is a WebCenter Content service and how services can be used is provided in Section 2, "Using Services." Information about basic services structure, attributes, actions, and a service example is provided in Section 3, "Customizing Services." You should be familiar with this information before customizing current services or creating new services
