Feed Publishing Framework

The Feed Publishing Framework provides user interfaces and APIs for feed definition creation and maintenance, feed searching and subscription, as well as feed document generation and delivery.

A web feed, news feed, or feed is a data format that provides users with access to frequently updated content. A feed contains entries, which might be headlines, full-text articles, excerpts, summaries, digital media, and links to content on a web site, along with various metadata. PeopleSoft applications, news organizations, external web sites, and other content distributors publish or syndicate web feeds, which enables users to subscribe to them.

The Feed Publishing Framework provides:

  • A set of APIs and code samples to assist application developers in creating new type of feeds and integrating them with existing features

  • Unified interfaces for content owners and administrative users to create, configure, and maintain feed definitions of various types.

  • Interfaces for end users to discover related feeds and search feed definitions.
