A Great Whitepaper on Meta Data Services (MDS)

Whilst several of our blog posts and videos have talked about MDS as the key platform for upgrade safe, layered customizations, however we've not discussed it in detail. Fortunately our colleague Gangadhar from WebCenter Product Management has already done a great job of this in his whitepaper entitled Metadata Services (MDS) in Fusion Middleware.

It includes a straight forward introduction to the tool and its capabilities, an explanation of the architecture and technical components, a summary of use-cases across both middleware and Fusion Applications, as well as details on MDS administration and implementation. It's a valuable background resource, especially for those new to this component.

As a follow-on from the post related to importing and exporting customizations, this article illustrates how to manage customizations in a related group.

Tip of the Week #4

Fusion Application customizations can be imported to the MDS repository via Enterprise Manager, usually accessible at http://server:port/em on a standalone WLS. There are times when you want to delete the imported customizations to see the uncustomized page during development and testing cycles.  It is quite easy to delete metadata customizations to rollback the application to its original state by following these commands: On your server locate and execute the wlst.sh. It is typically in the below location:

<WLS server path>/atgpf/common/bin/wlst.sh

then

connect('<weblogic user name>','<weblogic password>','t3://<server name>:port')
deleteMetadata(application='IncentiveCompensationApp',server='AdminServer', 
docs='/WEB-INF/oracle/apps/incentiveCompensation/creditSetup/creditRule/ui/flow/
mdssys/cust/Site/SITE/CreditRuleFlow.xml.xml')

Command reference is here which explains the syntax in more details and wild card options to delete more than one MDS document at once.
