Framework Folder Support for WebCenter Portal? It's Coming!

Courtesy of Ken Walker from the WebCenter Content Server team...

WebCenter Content Server allows its administrators the flexibility of using a Folders type interface to access stored content through an interface that mimics a folder based file system.  In fact, they have a choice of product components to do this, "Folders," "Folders_g," or "Framework Folders."  The Framework Folders component is the latest available, and most flexible folders interface to date.  Customers are migrating their older folders technology to this new option. 

Meanwhile, WebCenter Portal has used the Folders_g technology for quite some time.  In fact, Portal administrators will tell you that WebCenter Portal requires the Folders_g component, but that the Framework Folders technology isn't yet available for WebCenter Portal at all; what's up with that? 

Well, you may be surprised to learn that support for Framework Folders on WebCenter Portal is, indeed, here!

Oracle has released bundle patches for both WebCenter Content and Portal in April 2014 which bring home the support for FrameworkFolders. These patches will bring these products to version 11.1.1.8.3.

You can enable support for FrameworkFolders on new Content and Portal installations where the folders_g component has never been enabled using the following patches (new installations of .8 only):

  • Download and apply the WebCenter Content MLR03 Patch 18088049.
  • Download and apply the WebCenter Portal BP3 Patch 18085041.
  • Download and apply the WebCenterConfigure component Patch 18387955. Before applying this patch on the Content Server, ensure that WebCenter Content MLR03 Patch 18088049 has already been applied.

You can find detailed instructions on how to enable FrameworkFolders support in the Oracle® Fusion Middleware Installation Guide for Oracle WebCenter Portal 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.8.3).

WebCenter Portal 11.1.1.9 will support upgrade scenarios for any existing WCP customers.  They will be able to migrate from their existing Folders_g install to one that uses Framework Folders.
