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

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

The information contained in this guide is based on 11g Release 1 (11.1.1).
