Oracle WebCenter Content UI - How to change logo and title

The new Oracle WebCenter Content UI offers a more intuitive user interface with drag-and-drop convenience and sophisticated searching capabilities.

If you are already working with this new UI you might want to do some customization. In the Oracle documentation you will find some information to perform this: Customizing the WebCenter Content User Interface

If you are looking to change the branding logo and title do these simple steps:

  • Set your Weblogic home of the UI server
    • export WL_HOME=/u01/Oracle/Middleware/WebUI/wlserver_10.3
  • Execute the WLST of the WCCADF 
    • /u01/Oracle/Middleware/WebUI/oracle_common/webcenter/wccadf/WlstResources/common/bin/
  • Connect to the Weblogic Server
    • connect('weblogic','welcome1','t3://localhost:16225')
  • You can execute displayWccAdfConfig(appName='Oracle WebCenter Content - Web UI') to display the configuration of the WCC UI application.

  •  Use updateWccAdfConfig to update any configuration that you desire. In particular for the branding logo and title:
    • updateWccAdfConfig(appName='Oracle WebCenter Content - Web UI', customBrandingTitle='EPROSEED CONTENT MANAGEMENT')
    • updateWccAdfConfig(appName='Oracle WebCenter Content - Web UI', customBrandingLogo='file:///home/eproseed-logo.png')

And there you have it! Your WebCenter Content UI with your own branding logo and title!

JDeveloper 12c becomes slow while editing BPM Process

There is a known issue with JDeveloper 12c while working on a BPM Process where JDeveloper becomes very slow while editing the process.
A simple drag and drop of an activity or a data association becomes a real pain and it seems as if JDeveloper is constantly working on the background.

To improve this I have two suggestions. The first one will not solve the issue but will help. The second will take away all your frustration!

  1. Remove the auto-build on save action
    1. Go to Tools → Preferences
    2. Search for save actions
    3. Remove the Build Project after Save from the list
  2. Apply patch # 18964763 to your JDeveloper 
    1. Download patch # 18964763 from My Oracle Support
    2. Follow the installation instructions to install the patch with OPatch

And... VoilĂ !!
