With the recent re-branding of Universal Content Management to WebCenter Content, we thought it would be appropriate to discuss one of the main ways to expose WebCenter Content within a WebCenter Spaces or Portal application and this is through the Document Explorer task flow. WebCenter Spaces allows the ability to modify out of the box task flows on the fly without having to restart the managed server. One of the most popular out of the box task flows is the Document Explorer. This task flow allows users to manage their UCM content within a WebCenter Space. Some of the functionality this task flow exposes is Subscriptions, Upload, Send Mail, and many other features that WebCenter Content (formally UCM) users were used to using within that application. I will be discussing how to easily perform run-time customizations of the Document Explorer task flow through Oracle Composer and also through JDeveloper.
One of the minor annoyances with the Document Explorer task flow is the Name column defaults to a very small width causing the user to always have to expand this column to see the content title. As a developer you want the ability to make this change in one spot and have it propagate to all of your Document Explorer task flows. WebCenter Spaces gives you the ability to update the shared task flow within Oracle Composer, which will affect all instances of this task flow.
Here is how to modify the shared Document Explorer task flow using Oracle Composer:
The Document Explorer task flow exposes a lot of content management functionality. Some of this functionality is hidden within menus such as the Subscribe and Send Mail functionality. In this next section I will describe how to easily move the Subscribe and Send Mail links from within the menus to within the header of the task flow.

We hope the above helps you with integrating your WebCenter Content with your WebCenter Spaces or Portal application.
