Oracle UPK: How to Use the Standalone Publishing Option
Oracle UPK’s the Standalone publishing option is one of the formats available in the User Productivity Kit for process simulation deployment. This format deploys as an .odtpc file that can be easily distributed to end-users and process reviewers, as an email or download from a file server. To view the Topic, end users must have the Topic Player installed on their local machine.

Each Standalone topic contains everything needed to play back in the See It mode!, Try It!,  Know It?, Print It! and Do It! modes.

During publishing there is an option to include the Topic Player Setup program in the published output. The Topic Player Setup program can be distributed to your end users and only need be installed once in order to view .ODTPC files.

• In the Developer Outline pane, click to select the desired Module, Section, or Topic
