By: Dmitri Khanine

Overview of this book

Oracle UCM is a world-leading Enterprise Content Management platform. From Document Management, Web, Records, and more—Oracle has got all your business needs covered. Oracle UCM enables your organization to efficiently manage, store, preserve, and deliver content and documents. Written by Oracle ACE Dmitri Khanine, this book is a complete practical guide to building an ECM system and successfully configuring, administering, and operating it. It also shows you how to efficiently manage your organization's content and customize the UCM to fit your needs. This book wastes no time in getting you up and running and dives straight into the installation of the content server in Chapter 1. In the second chapter, you will master all the major controls and the admin interface. Metadata—a very important ingredient of any ECM—is thoroughly covered in Chapter 3. The book then moves on to the important tasks of securing your ECM system, configuring and managing workflows, and understanding and implementing virtual folders. The book also gives you an under-the-hood view of Stellent in Chapter 7. In the later chapters, you will learn how to migrate content like a pro and easily customize Oracle ECM. A bonus addition to the book is the final chapter, which is an easy-to-follow primer on web content management.

Completing your backup, restore, and migration toolkit

So far, we've seen Archiver, which allows us to export, import, and migrate our content items and to update metadata. We've also seen how we can use Batch Loader, Content Server Services, and idcCommand to migrate content to another server instance.

Now let's look at the tools that complete your toolkit:

  • Configuration Migration Utility (CMU): This is the tool that exports and imports your Content Server configuration and customizations.

  • Folder Archiving: This is a feature that allows you to export your entire virtual folder structure into a single HDA file. The content is not included and you're forced to export and import complete folder structure, not a subset.

  • Folder Structure Archive Component: This is a free add-on component that enables you to cherry-pick and export only selected folders you need—complete with their content.

Perfect. Now that you know what the tools are, let's see how we can use them.
