I thought it would be simple. Take the very first example from the Oracle examples for IPM 11g, compile it, and start adding my own code. This is my standard way to learn a new API (and probably yours, too). Start with the examples and keep adding functions to exercise features.
Well, I followed the instructions provided with the example programs (basically copy down some Jar files and put them on your classpath), and while the program compiles fine, I get a NoClassDefFoundError, which is common enough in Java when you use dynamic loading (Class.forName was something I used quite a bit in the old days).
However, the class it can;t find is weblogic.xml.jaxp.RegistryParser which should be in one of the Weblogic jar files; but I cannot find it. Oracle tech support also can’t locate it. I am waiting to hear back from their 2nd line support. Is it really that hard?
Oracle starting shipping its latest IPM product, 11g earlier this quarter. As a company, ImageSource has been working as a partner with Oracle on this next step in their ECM evolution. I, personally, am a little late to the 11g game, so I will be sharing with you my impressions as a relative newcomer to the 11g world.
Integration with ERP is something most SE’s (Systems Engineers) and PMs (Project Managers) should keep in mind when designing a project. ERP, or Enterprise Resource Planning, is the process of using modularized software and hardware within a centralized network and datastore. In regards to ECM, proper integration with ERP is important for maintaining data integrity with the larger organization. ImageSource has successfully incorporated ERP Integration with many of it’s customer partners.
