Oracle WebCenter Content Quick Search App
This App lets you connect to an Oracle WebCenter Content Server (aka Universal Content Management, see http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/middleware/webcenter/content/index-094708.html), do a quick search, view the results, view and download individual content objects.
The App has been developed with Cordova (aka PhoneGap) and been tested on iPhone 4 and iPad 2.
The WebCenter Content Server input field needs a URL in the form of
The search can be done without user and password in order to find public content, or with user credentials to access also secured content. Please note that username and password are sent in Base64 encoded clear text and encoding does not mean encryption, so this is unsecure, unless you are using a SSL connection to the Content Server.
The view operation recognizes WebCenter Content Converter and shows the HTML converted rendition of the content object when supported. Otherwise view will use the WebCenter persistent content URL to the webviewable rendition. The download operation gets the original file of the content object and downloads this to your local device external storage directory.
All user input is saved as preferences for next invocation, excluding the password for obvious security reasons.
The Quick Search input can also be left empty in order to find the latest content objects.
Only WebCenter Content and UCM 11g are supported (no earlier versions).
Limitations in this version:
•Only a maximum of 200 search results are shown
•Speech recognition not yet implemented
•Only the latest released versions are used
•Only standard Metadata supported
