The Universality of Devices

Device detection is handled smartly within Oracle WebCenter Sites, but unfortunately there is no clear wiggle room if one wants to not follow Oracle’s recommendation when it comes to mobile support. The platform sniffs out if you are on a desktop or any other mobile device listed in the Device Repository (simple xml file that contains properties for each device that an application wants to differentiate upon). You might think: “Amazing! And WCS already has a file listing relevant default/common devices! I have less work to do.” For a few minutes, you are as happy can be. Until you load...

While it wasn’t...

Making Manual Labor a 'lil less Manual

The Big Hurt

Who the heck wants to do manual labor when your finger nails are as well-manicured as ours are, eh? The WebCenter Sites Practice at Function1 is in full swing in the WCS 12c upgrade cycle, with a few clients in the process. As it were, the upgrade itself can be "sort of easy" to nearly impossible depending on the approach taken and feature(s) of your particular implementation. If the upgrade gods are shining their light down on you, you only need to go from 11.1.1.8.0 to 12c. However, there's a good chance that that isn't you, OR that that god is dead OR doesn't exist at all,...
