Rest APIs in Oracle WebCenter Interaction

Here’s something I hadn’t really stumbled across before: Oracle added REST APIs to WebCenter Interaction 10gR3. You can use these APIs to do basic Knowledge Directory manipulation, User management, and Activity Stream updates.

Unfortunately, the documentation is weak, the interfaces aren’t comprehensive, and you’ll get a lot more bang for your development buck by just sticking to the Server APIs, or even the IDK. If you want to hazard a look, though, it seems there’s some Javascript included with the portal in the imageserver that you can check out:

Too little, too late for this I’m afraid. As WCI fades away, it’s clear this mechanism for interacting with portal objects will never reach widespread adoption.
