Check out the new Oracle help web site

I found a broken link to an Oracle help document in one of my posts and when I went to the Oracle 12c database documentation to find the new URL to put in my post I found that Oracle had totally revamped their online manuals.

Here is a link to the new high level Oracle help site: url

I’ve only looked at it for a few minutes and can’t say whether I like it or not.  You can still download the manuals in PDF format so that remains familiar.  It looks like the new site integrates documentation across most or all of Oracle’s products in a similar format and that’s pretty cool.

Anyway, I just saw this and thought I would pass it along.

    The changes have caused an uproar as evidenced by this thread on OTN: https://community.oracle.com/thread/3628445?start=0&tstart=0

    And then there is this blog entry from Oracle Corp:

    Brian,

    Thanks for your reply and the links. I just noticed it late in the day yesterday. I guess this all happened last weekend. The good thing is that in the past I downloaded the pre-12c database versions of the documentation so I can use the old interface on my laptop regardless of how the public web site changes. I’m not sure if you can still download all the html as in the past, but I like having it local on my laptop in case I lose my internet access.
