Oracle Enterprise Content Management (ECM)

This section of the blog contains articles about the Oracle suite of Enterprise Content Management applications. This includes Universal Content Management (UCM), Web Content Management (WCM), Universal Records Management (URM), and a little bit of Information Rights Management (IRM). I helped create several of these products, and thus am very opinionated about how they should be used... I also cover technologies and topics relevant to content management in general, such as enterprise search, and identity management.

Besides the articles in this section, you may also benefit from the following sources:

Problem in metadata generation

We have checked in JSPs in stellant. we are using some tags as , In this case it is not generating metadata xml. But when we we use something like .., it generates metadata successfully. Just wanted to know if there is any configuration setting available to handle this. I am sure that not everyone codes tag necessary with ending tag(Mostly use shorter version of closing tag, rather than full closing tag.

Loading Physical and Electronic Physical Records

I am in great need of a solid solution to importing electronic physical records. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I have tried almost everything. Seems like they would have created a load tool for this like the batch loader for URM.

Loading Physical Electronic

Key word here - Learn HDA importing. On an AIX server you can use IDC Service commands to quicly import electronic physical records.
CREATE_EXTERNAL_ITEM loads physical only, and CREATE_INTERNAL_EXTERNAL_ITEM will load physical electronic. I also used IDC Commands (HDA importing) to create storage quickly.

What happens when you use the batchloader?

Its just a document... if you set the correct xIsRecord metadata in the Batchloader file, you should be able to use the batchloader to check in records.
