Integrating PleaseReview with Oracle WebCenter Content

When setting out on developing the integration of WebCenter Content with PleaseReview, our primary aims were the same as with other PleaseReview document management integrations. We wanted to develop a seamless solution which would allow all of the controlled collaboration benefits of PleaseReview to be available from within WebCenter Content without the user having to log into a separate system.  In addition, we wanted to make it possible for existing PleaseReview users already familiar with the User Interface, to be able to log into it using their WebCenter Content Credentials and carry out reviews using WebCenter documents and WebCenter Users as Participants.

In order to achieve these aims it was necessary to develop three separate components, which together work hand-in-hand to join WebCenter Content and PleaseReview....

Firstly a custom WebCenter Content Component was created in order to update the WebCenter Content user interface to include new PleaseReview menu items and custom inbox pages in the style of the WebCenter Content instance, for users with the appropriate permissions.  The result was a custom component that can easily be deployed and configured to work with PleaseReview by a WebCenter Content administrator.

Next, a custom PleaseReview extension (or System Connector) specific to WebCenter Content was built to enable users to log into the PleaseReview UI using their WebCenter Credentials and to enable PleaseReview to be able to interact with WebCenter Content via its APIs, for purposes such as accessing documents, selecting users etc. This was built using the standard PleaseReview system connector structure, so as to simplify the deployment process.

Finally, in order to enable PleaseReview to obtain details of the PleaseReview specific users and groups administered from within WebLogic Admin Console, a WebLogic PleaseReview Connector was developed, which can simply be deployed as a Web Application on the WebLogic server on which WebCenter Content resides using the WebLogic AdminClient.

Putting these three components together we now have a solution which offers everything we initially set out to do, making a seamless collaborative review process possible from within WebCenter Content.

Half of the PleaseTech marketing team.


We are very pleased to announce that after lots of hard work we can safely say that PleaseReview™ now brings its specialist collaborative review and co-authoring capabilities within reach of Oracle® WebCenter Content customers.

Following on from our earlier announcement that we had achieved Oracle PartnerNetwork gold level partner status, we have successfully completed PleaseReview's integration with Oracle's WebCenter Content ECM platform. This extends our current partner portfolio with other leading document and content management systems, and more integrations are underway.

PleaseReview is a natural fit with Oracle WebCenter Content as it brings its specialist collaborative review and co-authoring capabilities to those organizations who chose Oracle's ECM platform to help lower costs, reduce risks and improve business productivity. Indeed, as PleaseReview is proven to deliver significant cost and time savings and is easy to use, the ROI becomes quickly obvious. 

Additionally, as PleaseReview seamlessly accesses Oracle WebCenter Content's document repository, users can easily locate and participate in reviews from their WebCenter Content interface. Simultaneous access to the review, control over who can do what to where, comment and change reconciliation, automated consolidation of proposed changes and comments, owner management and control and comprehensive reporting are some of the features  they will benefit from.
