At a presentation of someone at Oracle I heard the difference between using
WCM, WebCenter Portal and WebCenter Spaces and when to use them.
The bottom line is that when you have a content driven portal, you
definitely want to use WCM because all of your content will be stored in the
When you want lots of flexibility, you want to use the WebCenter Portal
application. You can use some parts of WCM when needed but mostly you will
write your own code or use the OOTB components. When those OOTB components
don't provide the functionality you need, you can write your own.
With WebCenter Spaces you have less flexibility but you have a very nice
OOTB environment for collaborative portals.
In your case, if all you need is Site Studio features, build your portal
with Site Studio instead of WebCenter but if you need more agile portals
with a more Enterprise 2.0 approach, you will need the WebCenter Portal
Hope this helps

Subject: [WebCenter EMG] UCM Taskflows x Open WCM
Hi everyone, first of all I would like introduce me, my name is Nelson Maia,
I'm Brazilian and working with webcenter about a 1 year, I work a lot with
UCM and now I'm working with webcenter.
I posted a thread in Oracle Forum about sort the result from a result of a
UCM Data Control (getItems), I Yannick suggested me create my own data
control with JCR, so now I have a doubt about integration with webcenter x
With UCM 11g came a framework to develop in java application using a Site
Studio component, with this I can get services in UCM, I can search
documents in UCM and it's very good framework, my doubt is if I should use
ootb webcenter components to integrate with my ucm and when I should use
this open WCM.
I made some test and there's some problemns that I found in Open WCM:
- I can't insert a open WCM tag in the same page that I have oracle
- Open WCM work with just native jsp, and there's some difficult when use
this with adf faces, I think that is about the lifecycle diferences
But the good things are:
With open wcm I can use a lot of OOTB components from UCM, things like
placeholders, possibility to create content directly in UCM and etc.
What do you thing and recommend about this.
Hope that my english is not so bad!!
