This reference describes the REST API resources that are provided with Oracle WebCenter Sites. The REST API is used to access Oracle WebCenter Sites data.


This guide is written primarily for developers. It is assumed that developers have a clear knowledge of their company's business needs, and a basic understanding of their roles in the development of the online site and its back end. This guide is also useful to administrators, who collaborate with developers by setting up content management sites, site users, workflow processes, publishing methods, and Oracle WebCenter Sites client options.

Developers must know Java, JavaServer Pages (JSP), XML, and HTML. Administrators are not required to have programming experience, although a technical background is assumed.
