Save Customizations

Traditionally, customizations are stored as part of the application, and are lost when a patch or upgrade to the base application is deployed. With Oracle WebCenter Portal, all base application definitions, customizations are stored in the Oracle Metadata Services (MDS) repository as a layer on top of the base application. This centralized metadata strategy facilitates the joining of design-time and runtime efforts into a single, complementary development lifecycle. As a result, new versions of applications can be developed and deployed without losing the customizations added over the life of the product. When you add Composer components to a page, information is automatically stored to and retrieved from MDS, alleviating the need to spend time writing logic to manage customizations.
