Welcome to Oracle Fusion Middleware User's Guide for Oracle WebCenter. This guide describes the runtime behavior of the WebCenter Spaces application. Much of this information also applies to custom WebCenter applications, though it is written with WebCenter Spaces users in mind. (For information about custom WebCenter applications, see Oracle Fusion Middleware Developer's Guide for Oracle WebCenter.)

This guide provides instructions for such tasks as creating personal and group spaces; creating, populating, and managing pages; setting application preferences; and working with services and portlets.


This guide depicts the application user interface (UI) in screenshots. Users can apply different templates to the application UI to adjust its look and feel; therefore, your view of the application may differ somewhat from the views depicted in screenshots.


This document is intended for WebCenter application users who are interested in personalizing and customizing application pages and in creating online communities centering around a group project or a shared area of interest. It is also intended for business developers interested in creating enterprise mashups through runtime component wiring.

Documentation Accessibility

Our goal is to make Oracle products, services, and supporting documentation accessible to all users, including users that are disabled. To that end, our documentation includes features that make information available to users of assistive technology. This documentation is available in HTML format, and contains markup to facilitate access by the disabled community. Accessibility standards will continue to evolve over time, and Oracle is actively engaged with other market-leading technology vendors to address technical obstacles so that our documentation can be accessible to all of our customers.
