New and Changed Features for 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.8.3)

New Page Templates

WebCenter Portal Bundle patch 11.1.1.8.3 introduces support for four new page templates that provide efficiency and performance improvements over the existing page templates. The files included are:

To use the new page templates:

  1. Locate 18085041/NewAssetBP3.zip in WebCenter Portal Bundle patch 11.1.1.8.3 (patch 18085041) and extract the contents to a local directory.

  2. Log in to WebCenter Portal.

  3. Go to the Shared Assets page, which is available if you have the permissions of the Administrator or Application Specialist role.

  4. Select the following assets in the left pane, and upload the corresponding files from the saved location on your local file system:

    Asset Type File Names

    Page Templates

    pageTemplate_Skyros_Side_Navigation_Stretch_v2.ear

    pageTemplate_Skyros_Side_Navigation_v2.ear

    pageTemplate_Skyros_Top_Navigation_Stretch_v2.ear

    pageTemplate_Skyros_Top_Navigation_v2.ear

    Skins

    skin_Skyros_v2_Skin.ear

    Task Flows

    taskFlow_Portal_Side_Navigation.ear

    taskFlow_Portal_Top_Navigation.ear


After uploading the page templates, skin, and task flows, perform the following steps to use the new page templates:

  1. To set a new default page template for pages in the Home portal and all new portals (when the portal's template does not specify that a particular page template must be used), see the "Choosing a Default Page Template" section in Oracle Fusion Middleware Administering Oracle WebCenter Portal.

  2. To change the page template used by an individual portal, see Section 7.3.2, "Changing the Page Template for a Portal."

  3. To change the preferred skin used by a page template, see Section 21.6, "Setting the Preferred Skin for a Page Template."

For more information, see Chapter 21, "Working with Page Templates" and the "Developing Page Templates" chapter in Oracle Fusion Middleware Developing Portals with Oracle WebCenter Portal and Oracle JDeveloper.

FrameworkFolders Support

Previously, Oracle WebCenter Portal only supported Folders_g. WebCenter Portal Bundle patch 11.1.1.8.3 enables new installations of Oracle WebCenter Portal to be integrated with FrameworkFolders. Existing installations of Oracle WebCenter Portal patched to release 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.8.3) must continue to use Folders_g.

For information about the criteria that must be met for enabling FrameworkFolders, see the "Preparing Oracle WebCenter Portal for FrameworkFolders Support" section in the Oracle Fusion Middleware Installation Guide for Oracle WebCenter Portal. For information about the Folders_g and FrameworkFolders directory structure and the steps for enabling FrameworkFolders, see the "Enabling Mandatory Components" section in Oracle Fusion Middleware Administering Oracle WebCenter Portal.
