Wanted: A Few Good Communications Suite Examples
By Joesciallo-Oracle on Jan 30, 2007
We in documentation hear what customers want: more examples. Communications Suite examples, especially for deployment, are unfortunately far and few between. Good news is that I'm updating the single-host deployment example for the upcoming Communications Suite 5 release.
And more good news: the document itself is shrinking by a number of pages. Does this mean that the Comms Suite stack (along with the Java ES components it requires) is getting easier to install? Well, maybe. Some changes in the Communications Suite 5 release that are reflected in this doc include:
- Portal Server is no longer installed. (That alone probably accounts for the page reduction I mentioned above.)
- Solaris Operating System (OS) 10 is used.
- Hosted domains are now configured.
- Proxy auth is now the way that Single Sign-On is accomplished. As a result, Access Manager is no longer required for Communications Express and there are fewer configuration settings that you have to enter. (Sigh of relief there.)
I should have this document ready at release time, unlike in the past, where we had some lag time between getting the release bits installed to be able to test the doc and get it out.
BTW, if you are looking for current Communications Suite (aka Communications Services) examples, check them out here:
