This book will teach any Oracle Web developer how to build Web applications using Oracle Portal, the successor product to Oracle's popular WebDB 2.2. It covers the entire lifecycle, from product installation on Windows NT/2000 and Linux through configuration, capacity planning, development, integration, deployment, and administration. Oracle Portal specialist Mohamed El-Mallah introduces every key concept and technique Oracle Web developers need to master, including site component construction, creating and managing portlets (the basic components of a portal), working with Oracle Portal's site administration tools, and more. The book's advanced coverage includes techniques for integrating Java and XML data providers. Throughout the book, developers will construct a complete sample application; this application is provided on the accompanying CD-ROM and also available on the Web as a live demo. This book is for all Oracle Web developers, including beginning developers without Oracle Portal or WebDB knowledge; intermediate developers upgrading from WebDB 2.x; and all Oracle Portal/WebDB users who need to master the product's new portal, Java, and XML support.
The book is also for Oracle DBAs of all levels who are responsible for WebDB installation, configuration, tuning, and/or capacity planning in either Windows or Linux environments.
