WebCenter Content 11.1.1.9.0 has been released

See the WebCenter Content OTN Page for the download links.

http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/middleware/webcenter/content/downloads/index.html

11.1.1.9.0 still uses WebLogic 10.3.6.

If you are doing a new install you will need to download the 11.1.1.9.0 version of RCU which is available under the Required Additional Software section.

If you are upgrading an existing installation from an earlier release to 11.1.1.9.0 you will need to run the Patch Set Assistant to upgrade the schema. See Upgrading Your Schemas with Patch Set Assistant in the Oracle Fusion Middleware Patching Guide for details. Make sure to backup your schema before running the Patch Set Assistant.

Oracle Support is recommending that existing customers wait for the first bundle patch before upgrading to 11.1.1.9.0. That is because there are a lot of bugs addressed in the latest 11.1.1.8.0 bundle patch that did not make it into the 11.1.1.9.0 release. EXISTING customers are likely to run into regression issues that were already fixed if they had the latest 11.1.1.8.0 bundle patch installed.

If you are starting a new project I would recommend installing 11.1.1.9.0 and working around any bugs you find. The first bundle patch for 11.1.1.9.0 should be released before you need to go into production.

One of the major features in this release is the addition of Digital Asset Management (DAM) to the Content UI.

The link to the documentation is http://docs.oracle.com/middleware/11119/wcc/index.html. Someone was reporting that the link on OTN was wrong.

Migrating from Oracle Content DB to WebCenter Content

Someone asked about migrating from Oracle Content DB (CDB) to WebCenter Content (WCC)

There is no product offering that supports migrating content from CDB to WCC. Oracle Consulting has done some migrations for customers and has some internal tools that are available to assist with the migration. If you need assistance migrating from CDB to WCC you should contact Oracle Consulting.

Framework Folders and Duplicate File Names

I have been working with Framework folders a little bit in the past few days and found one unexpected behavior that is different from Contribution Folders (Folders_g). If you try and check a file into a Framework Folder that already exists in the folder it will allow it and rename the file for you.

In Folders_g this would have generated an error and prevented you from checking in the file.

A quick check of the Framework Folder configuration settings in the Application Administrator’s Guide for Content Server does not show a configuration parameter to control this. I'm still thinking about this and not sure if I like this new behavior or not. I guess from a user perspective this more closely aligns Framework Folders to how Windows handle duplicate file names, but if you are migrating from Folders_g and expect a duplicate file name to be rejected, this might cause you some problems.
