One of the sessions I’ve attended at Open World in regards of a customer case we’re working on, was regarding Siebel and Webcenter integration.
The presentation was to high-level which wasn’t that interesting after all, but I learned more about the packaging strategies for Webcenter.
Of course I got a bit more information regarding the release date of Webcenter … and to make sure you read this post fully, I will put it at the very end ;o))
What have I noted regarding this presentation:
- Webcenter, what does it offer? Centralize Applications and embed collaboration within a context specific manner. In other words: you’re showing documents which were published within UCM and the user-account is shown, you can check if the users’ presence by adding the presense services in the portlet, …
- Webcenter 11g comprises of: Webcenter Composer / Webcenter Services / Webcenter Framework / Enterprise Extensions
- Webcenter Composer = holds all components regarding collaboration (spaces, anywhere, interaction, …)
- Webcenter Services = holds all needed services to spice up your portal environment (mashups, analytics, social networking, shared services, …)
- Webcenter Framework= the actual building blocks of a portal environment
- Enterprise Extensions
The most important news given during this session:
A Migration Path will be foreseen when moving from OC4J into Weblogic Server
Well let’s see what happens early next year.
