generate the secure files in weblogic in Webcenter Spaces Applicaton

For security purposes, administrator user name and password details are stored in secure files.Obtain the location of these secure files from your systems administrator or generate the secure files in weblogic.
How to do that. lets find it out.

I am working on portal and spaces application.For deploying spaces application in console ,i need a secure file.Following are the steps to generate.

1. Navigate to: ORACLE_HOME/common/bin in command prompt using CD command.

2. Enter the command: – for unix.
wlst.cmd – for windows.

3. At the WLST command prompt, connect to the Administration Server for Oracle WebCenter:

connect(‘‘,’‘, ‘:‘) Where admin_user is the user name of the administrator, admin_pwd is the administrator’s password, host is the WebCenter instance, and port is the Administration Server port. This is used for connecting with weblogic using command prompt. i.e

connect(‘weblogic ‘,’welcome1’, ‘’)

4. Run the following command to create a user configuration file and key file in a specified location:

storeUserConfig(‘‘, ‘) Where userConfigFile is the name and location of the file storing user details and userKeyFile is the name and location of the file storing passwords.

For example: storeUserConfig(‘C:/myFiles/’, ‘C:/myFiles/’)

you can map the entry of these files in in spaces application to deploy shared library like below


Thats it. You can find the secure files in specified path.

WebCenter PS6 ( Released

Version PS6 ( of WebCenter has been released on 1st of April, 2013.Don’t know why they choose april fool day. PS6 includes many bug fixes in addition to enhancements to the WebCenter Content Application Extension Framework (AXF) supporting integrations with E-Business Suite and PeopleSoft.A rundown of the new Jdev Enhancements can be seen here

There will be one major version (PS7) of WebCenter by end of 2013. In this release, following are some highlights I learned from Oracle:-

1. there is no more two solutions (Spaces & Portal) for WebCenter. Spaces will be the part of WebCenter Framework. Only one concept that is PORTAL.

2. We can create multiple portal from Web Interface.

3. You can import/export portal archive (PAR exactly like JAR/WAR/MAR) from/to Web to/from JDeveloper for complex customization.

4. All types of popup windows will be eliminated from portal.

5. You can drag and drop Web 2.0 components and taskflows on to the page from resource catalogue.

6. Migration among different environments is easy due to PAR.
