Create image gallery in webcenter portal using content presenter templates

Best way to  develop Image gallery for  webcenter portal

1- Create a folder in UCM

2- Upload your Images under  this folder

3- create a content presenter template that use css & jquery .. I used fancy box component for the image gallery.

<?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8'?>
<jsp:root xmlns:jsp="" version="2.1" xmlns:af="" xmlns:dt="" xmlns:f="" xmlns:c="" xmlns:fn="" xmlns:ui="">

5- add content presenter to your page where the content is “content under folder”& template the one created in the step above.

Content Presenter Taskflow does not render in webcenter Portal Template

My customer asked for new business requirement which to add a js carousel as a banner in the template.

this carousel aim to get images from webcenter content + render some html on it.

while implementing this requirement   it worked great in the edit mode of the template.but it didn’t render at all in view mode on the portal.

I have opened SR with oracle mentioning that the content presenter doesn’t work in templates view mode but it works in edit mode. the reply was content presenter is not designed to work in templates.

but i found a work around that we should not add  content and template in  the taskflow edit wizard itself . Instead we add the content & template  in the content presenter paramters.


DataSource: select * from cmis:document

Data Source Type: Query Expression

Template View ID :my_customCS_viewer

Also you may find more info that may help to meet your requriments in the below links


<Error accessing credential from CSF having key MA_CSF_KEY oracle.imaging.axf.resources.AxfException

You may face this exception while integrating WCC with EBS

<Error> <oracle.imaging.axf> <BEA-000000> <Error accessing credential from CSF having key MA_CSF_KEY

To resolve it do the following

you should also have a record in the IPM AXF_SOLUTION_PARAMETERS table with parameter key “MA_CSF_KEY”:

SQL> select * from axf_solution_parameters where parameter_key=’MA_CSF_KEY’.

If no records are returned by the statement above, then insert a record manually using the following statements:

SQL> commit;

Also check that you have done this step.

Full Text Search In Webcenter Content “UCM” using java and RIDC API

To Search UCM using Java Code and RIDC we have to change an attribute in the config file of the UCM which you can find under this path


you will find and attribute called ” SearchIndexerEngineName” set to OracleTextSearch

SearchIndexerEngineName=OracleTextSearch      comment it and add the following command


Then you can call the RIDC API from Java code as follows to us the Full text Search


IdcClientManager manager = new IdcClientManager();
IdcClient idcClient = manager.createClient(“idc://serverip:4444”);

IdcContext userContext =
new IdcContext(“username”, “password”); // populate the binder with the parameters
DataBinder binder = idcClient.createBinder();

binder.putLocal(“IdcService”, “GET_SEARCH_RESULTS”);
“dDocFullText <substring> <qsch>” + “your query” +”</qsch>”);
binder.putLocal(“SearchEngineName”, “databasefulltext”);
binder.putLocal(“ResultCount”, “20”);

ServiceResponse response = idcClient.sendRequest(userContext, binder);
DataBinder serverBinder = response.getResponseAsBinder();
binder = response.getResponseAsBinder();

DataResultSet resultSet =binder.getResultSet(“SearchResults”); // loop over the results
for (DataObject dataObject : resultSet.getRows()) {
System.out.println(“Title is: ” + dataObject.get(“dDocTitle”));
System.out.println(“Author is: ” + dataObject.get(“dDocAuthor”));



restart the UCM and start indexing again.

Webcenter Document Service: Remove “IDC Profile:” prefix in upload page

First let me show you the issue , it appears when you click on upload  button in Webcenter Document Service

We are going remove that prefix as it is not user friendly,So we have to customize the Document service.

  1. To enable taskflow Customization use this document
  2. Create a new webcenter customization project
  3. show libraries
  4. navigate to the following package
  5. open the two files upload.jsff and profileUpload.jsff and add a client listener as the next 2 snapshots

    the update should appear in xml files like that
  6. Save All
  7. Deploy application to mar
  8. connect to WLST and Use the following script to deploy the mar to webcenter metadataimportMetadata(application=’webcenter’, server=’WC_Spaces’, fromLocation=’C:\metadata.mar’)

now it should be removed.
