9.3 Additional Considerations for the Restricted Use Licenses Included in Oracle WebCenter Portal

The following are additional considerations to the restricted use licenses described in Table 9-1:

9.4 WebCenter Licensing with Oracle Internet Application Server

Customers who have previously licensed Oracle Internet Application Server as a pre-requisite for WebCenter Services or WebCenter Portal have the right to use WebLogic Server Basic to run WebCenter Services and WebCenter Portal as part of their existing Oracle Internet Application Server Standard Edition or Enterprise Edition license. This right is only for products within WebCenter Services and WebCenter Portal that were previously certified against Oracle Internet Application Server. WebLogic Server Basic cannot be used to run the following: WebLogic Portal, WebCenter Interaction, WebCenter Collaboration, WebCenter Ensemble, WebCenter Analytics, Oracle WebCenter Console for Microsoft SharePoint, and Oracle WebCenter Application Accelerator for .NET. Instead, a separate WebLogic Server license is required to run these. WebLogic Server Basic is defined in Appendix A, "WebLogic Server Basic."

9.5 WebCenter Sites Option Licensing Considerations

WebCenter Sites Options must match the number of licenses of the associated WebCenter product. When licensing the Option for WebCenter Sites for Oracle ATG Web Commerce the number of licenses of the Option must match the deployed Processors of WebCenter Sites for Oracle ATG Web Commerce.

9.6 Oracle WebCenter Content Conversion included in Oracle WebCenter Content

Oracle WebCenter Content Conversion provides content conversion services in support of Content Server.

WebCenter Content Conversion includes Java SE. For details on Java SE Editions, see http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/terms/products/index.html.

Restricted Use Licenses included:

9.7 Oracle WebCenter Real-Time Collaboration

Oracle WebCenter Real-Time Collaboration enables users to connect and collaborate with others via web and voice conferencing, instant messaging, presence, and chat rooms. It complements other Enterprise 2.0 services available in WebCenter by connecting users who require direct interaction and immediate response.

For licensing details, see "Oracle WebCenter Licenses" in Oracle Beehive Licensing Information at the following URL:

http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/E16671_01/bh.200/e16646/beehivelicensing.htm

9.8 High Availability Considerations

Oracle WebCenter products have high availability features that require special licensing considerations. These considerations are similar to the licensing considerations for the high availability features of the Oracle Database and WebLogic Server.

9.8.1 Cold Failover Clusters

Failover clusters use a two or more node hardware cluster for failover. Failover is the process by which the hardware clusters automatically relocate the execution of an application from a failed primary node to a designated standby node.

The primary node is the processor that is actively executing one or more content management services at any given time. If the primary node fails, the hardware cluster automatically fails the content management services over to the standby node.

When using cold failover clusters, ten days of failover per calendar year are included in the license for the primary node. If you use more than ten days of failover per calendar year, additional server licenses are required for the standby nodes.

Cold Failover Cluster licensing applies to:

  • WebCenter Content

  • WebCenter Portal

  • WebCenter Sites
