Display UCM files in ADF/Webcenter application as images or link

Requirement- Display UCM images on the page or as link, so that user click of that image and can open in new window

Implementation – You can also have my previous videos to make connection between portal and content and other video Content Presenter in Webcenter Portal
or Content Integration Using Folder viewer in Webcenter Portal .

But if you really want to display your ucm image or show as link for your images or document then you follow below approach
Taking scenario if you don’t how many documents are there.then for that case use below approach

You can use af:image or af:goLink component to put the below url as source or destination

#{WCAppContext.applicationURL}/content/conn/contentserver/uuid/dDocName%3a#{contentId}

#{WCAppContext.applicationURL} = This will return the url with full context till port number = abc.com/7001/yourPortal

contentserver- is connection name to the UCM.

content id = is the content id of the document.

Displaying as link

  1. Pre-requisites for Oracle WebCenter 11g and Oracle UCM 11g Installation

Check the following pre-requisites on your system where WebCenter and UCM installation need to be done –

  1. Before starting the installation, the software bundles of the following products need to be available.

 

#

Product Name

Version (As used in the project)

  1. Creating WebCenter and UCM Group/User for installation

 

  1. Log in as the ‘root’ user.
  2. Create a Group (each for WebCenter and UCM installations) and an User (each for WebCenter and UCM installations). Assign the appropriate User to the respective Groups for the WebCenter and UCM installations.

     

  3. Checking Kernel Parameters

 

The following are the steps that needs to be followed –

  1. Log in as the ‘root’ user.
  2. Add the lines below to /etc/security/limits.conf file:

 

<User> soft nofile 4096

<User> hard nofile 4096

Here, Replace <User> in the above mentioned lines with the WebCenter or UCM installation user.

  1. Restart the system.

     

  2. Checking /tmp Space

 

The following are the steps that needs to be followed –

  1. Log in as the ‘WebCenter or UCM installation’ user.
  2. Make sure /tmp directory is writable and has atleast 60 MB of disk space for WebCenter and UCM installation.
  3. Run ‘df –h’ and verify of value of /tmp >=60 MB

 

  1. Preparing your system for WebCenter and UCM installation

 

You need to install the following products on your system before you run the WebCenter and UCM installation –

  • Repository Creation Utility (RCU) Schema Creation
  • JDK Installation
  • Oracle WebLogic Server Installation                                                

The following sub-sections elaborate the installation details for each of the above steps.

  1. Repository Creation Utility (RCU) Schema Creation

WebCenter Portal and UCM require that certain schemas exist in the database prior to installation. You must run Repository Creation Utility (RCU) to create the schemas in the database.

The following pre-requisites need to be done on your system before you run the RCU for creating schemas –

  • You must create an Oracle Database Instance (11g Release 1 or 2).
  • All the below required DB parameters need to be updated and these are only specific to RCU. Execute the below given SQL query using TOAD Editor/SQL Plus before you run the RCU installation.

 

alter system set open_cursors=500 scope=spfile

alter system set processes=500 scope=spfile

alter system set sessions=500 scope=spfile

 

 

 

 

This section elaborates the step-by-step procedure to create schemas in the database –

Step 1:

  • Unzip the RCU installable file to a directory (Say, rcuHome).
  • Navigate to /rcuHome/bin directory and open a terminal window.
  • Enter the following command:

     

    ./rcu

  • The RCU Welcome Screen appears.
  • Click Next to continue.


 

 

 

 

Step 2:

  • Select ‘Create’ to create component schemas in the database.
  • Click Next to continue.

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 3:

  • Provide the Database Connection Details (as given during the creation of Oracle Database):


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • Click Next to continue.



Step 4:

  • The Checking Prerequisites Screen appears, indicating the progress of the installer establishing the connection with the specified database.
  • When the operation completes, click OK.

 


Step 5:

  • Specify a schema prefix and select the components for which you want to create schemas in the database.
  • The default new prefix is ‘DEV’. If you want to create a new prefix for your schemas, select ‘Create a New Prefix’ and specify a new prefix name in the field. (E.g. S).
  • Select the following components (marked in bold). The components are selected here as per the project requirement.

     

Components  

Schema Owner

Dependencies

As Common Schemas

   

-Metadata Services

S_MDS         

None

Enterprise Content Management

   


-Oracle Content Server 11g-Complete

S_OCS   

None

WebCenter Suite

   

-WebCenter Spaces

S_WEBCENTER

-Portlet Producers

S_PORTLET

None

-Activity Graph and Analytics        

S_ACTIVITIES

None

Portal and BI          

   


-Portal

S_PORTAL

Oracle Portlet Producers (prefix_PORTLET)

 

  • After you select the components you want to install, click Next to continue.

     


Step 6:

  • The Checking Prerequisites Screen appears, indicating the progress of the component pre-requisites check for creating schemas.
  • When the operation completes, click OK.

     


Step 7:

  • Specify the passwords for your schema owners.
  • Select ‘Use same passwords for all schemas’ to use a single password for all schemas and their auxiliary schemas. This option is selected by default.
  • Enter the password and confirm password again.
  • Click Next to continue.

 


Step 8:

  • The Custom Variables Screen appears only if you selected a component on the Select Components Screen (for Create Operation) that supports custom variables, required by the components during runtime.
  • Enter value as ‘Y‘.
  • Click Next to continue.

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 9:

  • The Map Tablespaces Screen appears.
  • In this installation, you accept the default and temporary tablespaces for the selected components.
  • Click Next to continue.

     


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 10:

  • The Creating Tablespaces Screen appears, indicating the progress of the tablespaces creation.
  • When the operation completes, click OK.

     


Step 11:

  • Review the Summary Screen and verify the details of component schemas that will be created in the database.
  • Click Create to begin schema creation.

     


  • The schemas are being created.

     


Step 12:

  • The Completion Summary Screen appears, indicating the successful creation of schemas for Oracle WebCenter 11g and Oracle UCM 11g.
  • Click Close to exit.

     


  1. JDK Installation

The JDK must be installed on your system before you install Oracle WebLogic Server. It is recommended that you use the Sun JDK if you are installing in a development environment. Typically, this environment provides a more relaxed security configuration and enables you to auto-deploy applications. In a development environment, boot.properties is used for user names and passwords and polling is used for application deployment.

If you are installing in a production environment, it is recommended that you use the Oracle JRockit JDK. Production environments are for applications running in their final form. Full security is enabled and applications may be clustered or use other advanced features. In this mode, user names and passwords are required and polling is not used for application deployment.

This section elaborates the step-by-step procedure to install Sun JDK –

Step 1:

  • Navigate to the directory where you want to install the software. (Say, /usr/local/apps). In this installation, Sun JDK installable file is placed at the same location where you want to install the software.

     

  • Change the permission of the file you downloaded to be executable. Open a terminal window and enter the following command:

 

chmod a+x jdk-6u26-linux-x64.bin

  • Verify that you have permission to execute the file. Enter the following command:

     

    ls –l

     

Step 2:

  • Run the JDK executable file. Enter the following command:


    ./jdk-6u26-linux-x64.bin

     


 

 

 

 

Step 3:

  • You will be prompted to ‘Press Enter to continue’. Press ‘Enter’ to complete the installation. In this installation, Sun JDK is installed in the /usr/local/apps/jdk1.6.0_26 directory.

     


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  1. Oracle WebLogic Server Installation

WebCenter and UCM runs on Oracle WebLogic Server 11g. You must install Oracle WebLogic Server before you install WebCenter and UCM. If you do not already have one, follow the instructions in this section to install Oracle WebLogic Server.
