Content Management using weblogic portals

been working on j2ee technologies for 6 yrs now, but i'm relatively new to weblogic portals. i looked up amazon and google, but cant seem to find some good resources which could get me kickstarted on content management using weblogic portal API. i have looked up the API, but it would be best if i could get some articles, a couple of good books, that would save me from doing all the research.

i have a hang of how the admin portal works, but would need some guidence on how i can use the weblogic content mgmt api to retrieve the code from the bea repository.

hey...i need two things...

1) Some reference material that would give me code examples, for various tasks that can be done using the content management system, to dynamically display content...basically, i want a guide on the Content Management API.

2) on more specifically and urgently, i have added an html page into the BEA Repository. Now, i want to display that page using the API. Using the ShowBinary servlet, if i make a call to the html directly, it works. however, i want to do something like this...

            Web Application Page
        This is the header
        <%String path= "ShowBinary/" + "BEA%20Repository/Ads/financial/Logos/test2.html";
        <jsp:include page="<%=path%>" flush="true" />

test2.html has been added into the repository, and if i want to access it directly, using the url, i am able to access it. however, since "ShowBinary" is a servlet, it cant be used in conjunction with the jsp:include tag.

in other words, here is what i want to do.
i have 2 pages

test2.html: This is the dynamic page, and has been added to the content repository.

test1.html: this is a static page, and it should dynamically include "test2.html"

hope this is a wee bit more clear.
