Oracle WebCenter Sites Asset Modeling: An Introduction

Welcome everyone, to an introductory blog about Oracle WebCenter Sites (WCS) Asset Modeling.  Asset Modeling is the first major step in planning and designing the structure of a website using WCS.

Publisher is up but it's sort of down.

An instance of Publisher that I had a chance to touch recently went down with a puzzling exception and unknown cause. What better way to liven up the day of your friendly neighborhood portal than a vague and somewhat unexplained service error for a component of your deployment that has not given you any trouble since the day you installed it.

A little research for your application to portlet(s) migration

Being asked to research application frameworks and then reporting back is a pleasant deviation from the usual grind of production deadlines and code review due dates. So, when the opportunity came up to do some heads-down review on what is available for a client looking to convert a rather extensive JavaServer Faces (JSF) application into portal ready portlet components for WebCenter Interaction (WCI) - we were giddy.
