Samples for Site Studio for External Applications

We've posted some new samples to help you make use of Site Studio for External Applications (SSXA).They're available from the tutorials section of the UCM page on Oracle Technology Network, or directy here.

Note that these samples require UCM Patch Set 3, because they use SSXA's new "managed template" feature to make the samples easier to set up and more reusable.

In any case, the samples provide dozens of components and layouts you can use in your web projects. They also serve as a "cookbook" of examples of how to use SSXA. Sample categories include:

  • Site UI Components, such as navigation
  • Graphical Components, such as end-user configurable flash slide shows
  • Specific content types, such as articles, FAQs, and product pages
  • Lists, such as user-editable queries and multi-column lists
  • Dynamic content, such as A/B splits
  • Site Manager, so users can build out sites
  • CSS-driven page layouts and subtemplates

Tell us how you like the samples and what you've done with them ... and what else you need to be successful!

Site Studio 10gR4 - New Feature FYI

Back in September of 2009, Site Studio 10gR4 included two extremely useful new features:

On Demand Editors-
This is a new feature that allows the contributor form to load and only show a preview of each of the elements until they are clicked on to activate them. This can be very useful when editing a region with a large number of elements where the intention is to only edit a subset of the elements.

Direct Delivery of Native Documents-
Traditionally when a link was made to a Native Doc, that link would redirect to the weblayout location for that file. This meant that a path containing entries like /groups/public/documents, etc, would be seen in the users browser. A new feature has been implemented to allow PDF files to be delivered directly from a friendly URL instead of redirecting to the weblayout location. This helps to maintain the users context within the website. In addition to PDFs, this feature has also been extended to include any other file type. The feature allows a global list of file extensions to be configured and then overrides may be applied, via custom section properties, at the section level.

See release notes for more details.

Site Studio 10gR4 ( - Build Released

A new build of 10gR4 was released to metalink on January 15th. Notable updates include a new version of the Ephox editor (, as well as a new feature for section level replication. From the release notes:

Section level Replication feature -
New section property that allows sections to be considered not ready to move during a site replication. This allows a section to be marked as not ready for replication while significant changes are being made to the section. When the section is ready to be replicated the property can be reset either in the designer application, the manager application or directly from the page in contribution mode (via the new contribution mode banner option). When this feature is enabled, adding a new section or performing a switch content on a section will automatically set this value to not ready so that the new content will not automatically be replicated to another server. The feature is enabled in Designer from the File->Site->Advanced->Enable Section Level Replication menu.
