Developing WebCenter Content Cross Platform iDoc Enabled Components for Mobile, ADF, Sharepoint, Liferay

July 23rd, 2014 by

frankensteinSo over the last couple of months I’ve been thinking and tinkering with code – “Whats the best approach for creating a WebCenter Content (WCC) components that I can consume and reuse across multiple platforms and environments?”
Is it… pagelet producer or maybe an iFrame; but these solutions just weren’t good enough or allowed the flexibility I really wanted.

I needed a WCC Solution that could easily be consumed into Mobile either cordova (Hybrid APP) or ADF Mobile (AMX views) and that worked on different devices/platforms as well as on any enterprise app ie Sharepoint (.Net), Lifreray,  WebCenter Portal (ADF) or even consumed into the new WebCenter Content ADF WebUI – Providing the added advantage that there would not need to be multiple branches of code or redevelopment of the component for each platform and environment.. 

And in the famous words of Victor Frankenstein.. “It’s Alive!!”

Yes; after tinkering around and trying different approaches this is the solution I created to support the above model.
I’m not saying this is the right approach or supported by the enterprise vendors but an approach that is reusable and can work on all enterprise apps.

 

[VIDEO CONVERTING]…

Here’s a quick video of a drag/drop MultiUploader component I created for WebCenter Content Classic that I can reuse on .Net and ADF WebCenter Portal/Content as well as mobile.

Read on to find out more on how this was achieved..
