Introduction to SOA Information Centers
By ShawnBailey on Feb 22, 2012
What is an Information Center (IC)?
Information Centers are meant to be your product landing page on My Oracle Support to see what's new, find useful links and hopefully avoid issues. They are specialized documents in our Knowledge Base that aggregate and organize the latest and most relevant information for a product or topic. Each IC is made up of labeled subsections that display a list of content items. Some of these subsections are dynamic, automatically picking up new content and dropping aged documents, while others are statically populated. In either case we do our best to keep all of the content up to date.
Information Centers are product centric and grouped as such. There will be an Overview IC for the product and a menu containing the associated IC's such as 'Troubleshoot' and 'Install and Configure'. These documents are handled as a group and ultimately each product should have it's own group of IC's.
What are the Available SOA Information Centers?
The SOA Information Centers are organized in a hierarchical fashion starting with 'Service Oriented Architecture' at the top. We currently have only a subset of the products covered but will be publishing additional IC's soon. We've tried to make the navigation between IC's intuitive and simple.
These SOA IC's are currently available:
- Oracle Service Bus
As we work to make our Information Centers more useful we would appreciate any feedback you have on what works and what doesn't. At the end of the day they exist to meet your needs and we are here to see that they do.
