WebCenter Content's New ADF UI, and IE11
By Ken Walker-Oracle on Apr 18, 2014
We had some warranty work done on my wife's new car about a month ago. During the repair process, a technician over-tightened the 40 cent bolt that holds the alternator in place. It cracked, and over the ensuing days, the bolt slowly worked itself free and the alternator started to re-align itself. Eventually, it was resting against a belt that spun through the housing of the alternator and cut through a couple of wires. These wires powered the compressor for the air conditioner so... that's how a 40 cent bolt was responsible for the sudden and rapid loss of cool air in the car. Repairs were far more than 40 cents, however, and luckily they were covered under warranty.
Like dominoes, one bug can often cause another, and another, and so on. Recently, a similar bug caused a severe "headache" for customers who use the new ADF UI in WebCenter Content. All of a sudden, after a recent upgrade, their IE v11 browser refused to display anything in the new UI correctly. In order for IE11 to properly display Content Server's new ADF UI,
several patches will need to be put into place. There is a patch for IE11, but there are two other patches that must be applied first!
Important Note: The following ADF patchsets must be applied in this order on the Content UI domain before applying the IE 11 patchset:
Then, you can download and apply:
3. Patch 18277436.
Crazy? No crazier than replacing a bunch of wire and an alternator housing, prior to screwing in a new bolt! For further details on how to install the patch, please see Note 1644897.1.
