1 Introduction to Oracle Universal Content Management Services

This guide provides detailed information about Oracle Universal Content Management (Oracle UCM) services, which are functions or procedures performed by the Oracle Content Server system, Oracle Inbound Refinery system, Universal Records Management system, and other Oracle Content Server components.

Calling an Oracle UCM service (making a service request) is the only way to communicate with the Oracle UCM system or access the Oracle Content Server database. This guide describes service usage and syntax, and provides detailed descriptions and examples of commonly used and predefined Oracle UCM services.

The information contained in this guide is based on Oracle UCM 11g Release 1 (11.1.1). The information is subject to change as the product technology evolves and as hardware and operating systems are created and modified. Due to the technical nature of browsers, databases, Web servers, and operating systems, Oracle cannot warrant compatibility with all versions and features of third-party products.


For more information about customizing and integrating the Oracle UCM system, see Oracle Fusion Middleware Developer's Guide for Oracle Universal Content Management.

This guide is arranged according to Oracle UCM functionality or component, making it easier for you to find information about specific services. Services that are used extensively have an extended description. In addition, frequently-used services are marked with an asterisk (*) in introductory lists in each chapter.

An index is provided at the end of this guide.
