I am starting with this post as a series that aims to be a  tutorial on creation of Fatwire Content Server site (CS Site).

The new name for the CS Site, as proposed by Oracle is WebCenter Site (WCS).

This could be useful as an introduction to the WCS, before approaching the long (and complex) documentation provided by Fatwire.


The Content Server product is the application on which the CS product family is built. Content Server is composed of the Content Server core, co-resident Satellite Server, and several clients that provide optional content management interfaces.

  • CONTENT SERVER CORE serves as the operating system on which the entire CONTENT SERVER FAMILY is built.
  • SATELLITE SERVER is the caching application. SATELLITE SERVER is of two types: CO-RESIDENT and REMOTE. These serve the caching purposes of Content Server.
  • CS-DIRECT also known as XCELERATE is the base module which is built on content server. It introduces the concept of  BASIC ASSETS, giving more strength to the existing inbuilt assets like pages, templates, site entries, etc.
  • CS-DIRECT ADVANTAGE also known as GATOR is the advanced module built on the top of CONTENT SERVER CORE and CS-DIRECT, to get the advantages of the functionality of basic assets as well. It introduces the concept of FLEX ASSETS, which helps us in the creation of hierarchy of assets, which is not possible with Basic Assets.
  • CS-CLIENTS are the user interfaces/clients which help us in making our tasks easy such as editing content, creation of content, etc. The following are some of the CS Clients: CS-DESKTOP, CS-DOCLINK, INSITE, FCKEDITOR, EWEBEDITPRO, CLARKII OIE, etc.
