Information in this document applies to any platform.


By default, Content Presenter uses CMIS REST APIs to surface Content Server content for local (in-memory, oracle.wcps.cache.MapCache) caching, which means that to use Coherence for caching, it must first be enabled. Using Coherence for Production environments is strongly recommended, and is a requirement for High Availability environments.

This note is to walk through the steps of configuring Coherence as the caching for a WebCenter Portal Application.

This note is not to supersede the available Documentation, but to provide an easy step-by-step example to show you how to enable it.
