Last updated on JULY 27, 2023

Applies to:

Oracle WebCenter Portal - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


In an WebCenter Portal installation, it is possible to create a page containing a Mashup task flow.
If a link is created back to the current page, using the Hyperlink component, then the number of connections used is increased by one every time the link is used.
Creating a link via the 'Links component' doesn't have the same effect.

Steps to reproduce
1. Login as weblogic user
2. Click on Adminstration
3. Resources
4. Created a Mashup data sources connecting to DEV_ACTIVITIES data source with the following SQL

SELECT name_, path_ FROM
asdim_wc_documen_0 WHERE objecttype_=:object AND CONTEXT_ is not NULL
AND lastmodified between SYSDATE-5 and SYSDATE+1 and rownum < 6
order by lastmodified DESC

Bind parameter : object=DOCUMENT

5. Make all data sources available using the SHOW link
6. Create a Mashup taskflow from the Resources Menu - Test1TaskFlow
7. Edit it and added Test1 data source in TABLE format.
8. Created a new page and give access to PUBLIC to view
9. Added Test1TaskFlow to page.
10. Page URL is http://<HOST>:<WCP_PORT>/webcenter/spaces/page/PageWithTaskFlow
11. Opened console http://<HOST>:<WLS_PORT>/console
12. Selected Environment-->Servers-->WC_Spaces--> Monitoring-->JDBC--> and note the number of connections.

13 Edit the page
a) Add a the Links component, and add a page link and select the current page
b) Add a HyperLink component, and edit it to go to http://<HOST>:<WCP_PORT>/webcenter/spaces/page/PageWithTaskFlow

After clicking on link from step a) the connection count did not increase.
After clicking on the link from step b) the connection count did increase on each click.
