Oracle WebCenter Portal Jump Start Kit

The Jump Start Kit (JSK) for WebCenter Portal is a utility that installs a fully functional version of WebCenter Portal pre-integrated with Oracle WebCenter Content, including key features enabled and preconfigured, all within a single machine instance (virtual or physical). The JSK supports Linux x86-64. It also includes a series of templates, examples, and lesson guides to walk you through a series of typical use cases. It is targeted to developers or product evaluation only, and is not supported for production use.

Oracle WebCenter Portal JSK
Here are all the details you need to get started.
How does it work?

The JSK expects you to download the required software from the Oracle Technology Network. This includes the Oracle Database, Oracle WebLogic Server, WebCenter Content, WebCenter Portal, Oracle HTTP Server, as well as Fusion Middleware utilities and the Repository Creation Utility (see exact list with links below). It then installs and configures each of these to interoperate with each other, and secures them all with SAML SSO.

The JSK then configures WebCenter Content and WebCenter Portal integration points such as Inbound Refinery, and configures several WebCenter Portal features, including personalization services, the pagelet producer, blogs, wikis, and lists. Finally it installs and configures the AviTrust sample application along with several sample applications and portals designed to guide new users through Portal’s features.

You do not have to interact with the JSK installer during this process. Total run time depends on the speed of the machine being installed to, but tends to take between 1.5 to 2 hours.

The JSK portal is targeted for developer-only non-production use because of several assumptions made about the topology, including running all services on one machine, as well as selecting easier to configure but slower services, such as LiveSearch in place of Oracle Secure Enterprise Search.


The minimum requirements are for a physical or virtual machine running Linux with minimum 10GB of RAM available. The supported operating system versions are Oracle Linux (all versions supported by the software) and RedHat Linux (all versions supported by the software). The versions supported mirror that of WebCenter Portal based on the latest WebLogic Server. Before performing any installation, you must read Oracle Fusion Middleware System Requirements and Specifications and Oracle Fusion Middleware Supported System Configurations to ensure that your environment meets the minimum installation requirements for the products you are installing. Both of these documents are available on this page.
