I received a copy of Yannick Ongena’s “Oracle WebCenter 11g PS3 Administration Cookbook” from Packt Publishing a few weeks back. Here is my assessment of the book.
While the title “Administration Cookbook” suggests that it may just cover Administration topics, I found the book covering a lot more than just Administration. It covers all the important aspects of WebCenter Portal – building a portal, consumption of Portlets, constructs like Navigation and Page Templates, services like wiki, Spaces, and much more.
Yannick’s book is very well written. The concepts are very well laid out and explained with a lot of screen shots. The book is a great resource for Architects and Developers. It provides an excellent overview and will be a good reading for Project Managers who are evaluating Oracle WebCenter Portal.
I really like the way Yannick explains how a Portal can be built using the powerful JDeveloper tools and later evolved and managed using WebCenter Runtime browser-based tools.
Congratulations Yannick on bringing this book to the ever growing WebCenter community!
