12 Develop with OCE Toolkit

OCE Toolkit helps you develop site templates, themes, custom components, and content layouts for Oracle Content and Experience.

With OCE Toolkit, you work in your own development environment and can use asset repositories, files, and folders in Oracle Content and Experience. OCE Toolkit has tools to create and develop custom components and site templates, including themes and content layouts. It includes a local test harness for quick, iterative development and sample unit tests to start with.

OCE Toolkit can help you do the following tasks:

  • Set up your local development environment to use an Oracle Content and Experience instance for local development and testing of components, templates, themes, and content layouts

  • Create components, site templates, and content layouts from samples, run them in the test harness, explore them, and develop the components, templates, themes, and content layouts in a Developer Cloud Service environment

  • Import components and site templates that were created in Oracle Content and Experience into a Developer Cloud Service project and environment for source management and further development 

  • Export components, templates, and content layouts from a Developer Cloud Service environment for use in Oracle Content and Experience

  • Copy an existing component, template, or content layout

  • Write unit tests 

  • Optimize components 

  • Deploy your components and templates to Oracle Content and Experience
