Page types define the contents of a page and the information that is stored about a page. The information stored about a page is determined by the attributes of the page type.
Base page types are the page types included with OracleAS Portal. The following are the base page types:
Standard: Displays items and portlets.
URL: Displays the contents of a particular URL.
Mobile: Displays item and portlets in a hierarchical tree structure for viewing on a mobile device.
Note: Mobile support must be enabled in OracleAS Portal for this page type to display.
PL/SQL: Displays the results of executing PL/SQL code.
JSP: Displays the results of executing a JavaServer Page (JSP).
If you want to store more information than the default page types allow, you can create a custom page type. You base a custom page type on one of the base page types. The custom page type automatically inherits all of the base page type's attributes. After you create a custom page type, you can edit it to add attributes that are specific to your requirements.
Note: You must create an attribute before you can add it to a custom page type.
In addition to adding attributes to custom page types, you can also add calls to PL/SQL or HTTP procedures. You can pass attributes as parameters to the procedures if required.
Note: You cannot add attributes or procedure calls to base page types.
