Will There be Ongoing Support for IdcCOmmandUX in WebCenterContent 11g?

(Doc ID 1526502.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 14, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle WebCenter Content - Version 10.1.3.5.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

NOTE: The Oracle® Fusion Middleware Developer's Guide for Content Server 11g Release 1 (11.1.1) states that the media contains an extras/IdcCommandUX/setup.exe. This is not correct per the following:
 
1. The 11g WebCenter Content media does not contain IdcCommandUX
 
2. The setup.exe does not exist. It's the IdcCommandUX.ocx that's used to implement IdcCommandUX.

Instead, to use IdcCommandUX with an 11g content server.

Download the 10g UCM install media. In the extras folder of the 10g installation media, the IdcCommandUX.zip file is available. Copy this file to a client PC.
Unzip IdcCommandUX.zip to a folder on the client machine. Run the following to register the ocx file.

regsvr32 c:\path\to\IdcCommandUX.ocx


Once regsvr32 succeeds, create a file called ping.vbs that will run a simple service call against UCM.



On 64 bit machines, the cmd.exe that must be used is in the C:\Windows\SysWoW64 directory.

Result is similar to the following:

If using the wrong cmd.exe, the error will state:
Microsoft VBScript runtime error: ActiveX component can't create object: 'Idc.CommandUX'


Even though there is no 11g package, is the 10g version supported with 11g?
