Using a Resource Catalog


Using a Resource Catalog

The Resource Catalog is your window into the many disparate resources your application may need to consume. It enables you to define connections to the resource providers, and to drag those resources into your application as needed. The resource catalog provides a search tool to search all the defined repositories in a single action. Connections can be created for the following types of resource repositories:

Application server


File system

UDDI Registry

URL adapter



BI Presentation server


MDS connection

Portlet producers

Virtual Content Repository (VCR)

WSDL adapter
