WebCenter Interaction 10gR4 New Features, Still No Sign of Resolved Issues

Monday, April 23rd, 2012

When Neo (10gR4, for those who are counting) came out (and then REALLY came out), word on the street was that there were 200 “bug fixes”, but we never got official word of what those work, like we’ve seen in the past.

I wish I could tell you in the four intervening months that I’ve seen such a document, but sadly, I still haven’t. It does seem, though, that since then, some updates were made to Oracle’s What’s New section of the release notes, so, you know, there’s that.

Officially, as of this writing here are the latest updates:

  • Support for .NET 3.5 and Java 1.6
  • Support for Intel 64-bit on Windows and Linux
  • New adaptive tags supporting multi-level menus and trees, adaptive tag caching, higher level logic tags, and adaptive tag sample portlet
  • Advanced search adaptive layout page
  • Support for displaying Pagelet Producer pagelets in Oracle WebCenter Interaction
  • New KD portlet
  • Tagging Engine
  • Native RSS integration
  • New password management features

In the coming weeks and months, we’ll be diving into some of these features, as well as Collaboration Server and any other new stuff we can find. Stay tuned!

Installing NEO, aka WebCenter Interaction 10gR4

Thursday, January 12th, 2012

So, now that we’ve got WebCenter Interaction 10gR4 downloaded, you’re probably wondering how things look. Well, because it’s just a point release (and probably the LAST one), don’t expect much in the way of dramatically new stuff.

The installation process for the portal will be pretty familiar to those of you who’ve done any before, although there are a LOT of new options, as Oracle has chosen to bundle together most of the new stuff into three uber-installers (Portal, Collab, Analytics).

The portal installer in particular really throws in everything and the kitchen sink – even things like the IDK and Documentum Crawlers are all bundled in there:

Upgrading Analytics 2.5 to 10.3.0 – missing documentation

Tuesday, May 11th, 2010

If someone can find this in the documentation SOMEWHERE, let me know and I’ll update this post.¬† Until then, consider yourself one of the lucky few who are now aware of a missing step in the 2.5 and 10gR3 WebCenter Analytics Upgrade guides:

Aqualogic Analytics 2.5 QuickStart Guide

WebCenter Analytics 10gR3 Upgrade Guide

The step:  In addition to running the Analytics25Update.bat file with no parameters:

PT_HOME\ptanalytics\10.3.0.1\bin\Analytics25Update.bat

… you need to also run it with a “collab” parameter to properly partition the Collaboration tables:
