1 Introduction

This chapter includes the following sections:

1.1 What Is the UCM VCR Adapter?

The UCM VCR Adapter provides access through the WebLogic Portal Content Management Virtual Content Repository (VCR) to content stored in the Oracle UCM system. Oracle UCM is a suite of enterprise content management products that include Oracle Content Server and Oracle Site Studio. The adapter allows WebLogic Portal to access UCM-based content for use in portal applications. For example, you could access content stored in UCM with WLP features like Content Presenter and content selectors.


Only Content Server is required to use the adapter. The adapter works whether or not Site Studio is installed on the server. Site Studio is not required; however, extra features are available when Site Studio is installed.

1.2 Adapter Architecture

The UCM VCR Adapter serves as a bridge between the WebLogic Portal Content Management VCR and a UCM repository. The relationships between the various elements are illustrated in Figure 1–1.


Only content in a UCM repository that is specified as State = Released will be accessible through the adapter. Content that is in any other workflow state, or is scheduled for future release, will not be accessible through the VCR.
