Re: Trail version for EMC Documentum repository connector

Downloading the zip file from the PTC website to the Arbortext Editor client machine, I get a zip file.

MED-71939-CD-061_M030_Win64.zip file

Extract that into a temp directory I see 4 directories created

docs, flexlm, server, windows

The content of the server folder needs to be installed on the Documentum Serve

In the Windows folder is a setup.exe file used to install Arbortext Editor.

The docs directory contains installation instructions and release notes.

The flexlm directory contains the license manager.

Link is here: http://www.ptc.com/product/arbortext/author/editor/evaluation

List of compatible softwares are in the product documentation. Also I heard from the next version they will discontinue support for the Documentum adapter.

Re: Trail version for EMC Documentum repository connector

I saw that Downlaod.. but trail version has all the things which I am looking for ?

1. Need to create the templates - using Editor tool / Do i need styler or editor ?

2. Plugin - Store in Documentum repository.

3. Publish to PDF.

Thanks .. that location seems to have only 1st point from above not Documentum connector ? can you confirm once. Also where can i find the guides for Documentum conenctor to crosscheck the same for supported version of DCTM.

Thank you for important note of from next version going to remove DCTM support.

Re: Trail version for EMC Documentum repository connector

Arbortext 6.1 trial ships with the Documentum adapter. The trial version also includes Publish to PDF as a desktop function (this is a feature of Styler). That is to say, you cannot integrate Styler with Documentum to have it automatically produce renditions from your CMS objects. For that functionality you would typically use Arbortext Publishing Engine.

It is worth noting that Arbortext Editor and Arbortext Styler are essentially the same software, but Styler allows you to publish to web, PDF, etc. whereas Editor is purely for XML authoring and editing.

Re: Trail version for EMC Documentum repository connector

Thank you again.. last point at present to know document can share which can provide information of which Documentum version it is supported. like 6.5 / 6.6 / 6.7 of Documentum.

Re: Trail version for EMC Documentum repository connector

See screenshot of PTC/Arbortext's adapter support for Documentum attached. Looks like all are supported for the WDK adapter.

Re: Trail version for EMC Documentum repository connector

Where I can find document (page shown in above) to download.

Re: Trail version for EMC Documentum repository connector

WDK is the Webtop.

Documentum/XML vs Documentum/WDK

The Arbortext Adapter to Documentum/WDK and the Arbortext Adapter to Documentum/XML function in similar manners. The following differences exist between the Arbortext Adapter to Documentum/WDK and the Arbortext Adapter to Documentum/XML. Refer to the Installing Arbortext Editor, Styler, and Architect for detailed version support information.

Note

Each of the repository adapters can be installed on a workstation. However, it is recommended that such workstations only be configured in this manner when migrating from one adapter to the other.

  • Inserting objects is handled differently between the two adapters.
    • The Arbortext Adapter to Documentum/WDK provides File Insert Reference and File Insert Duplicate menu selections in the Browser, and Documentum Paste Object Reference and Documentum Paste Object Duplicate menu selections in Arbortext Editor for inserting objects.
    • The Arbortext Adapter to Documentum/XML provides a File Copy menu selection in the Browser, and Documentum Paste Object Reference and Documentum Paste Object Duplicate menu selections in Arbortext Editor for inserting objects.
  • The Arbortext Adapter to Documentum/WDK does not support dragging and dropping objects from the Browser to Arbortext Editor for editing. The Arbortext Adapter to Documentum/XML does support editing objects in this manner.
  • Searching for objects with the Arbortext Adapter to Documentum/WDK is performed using the Browser's Search menu. Searching for objects with the Arbortext Adapter to Documentum/XML is performed using the Documentum Search menu selection in Arbortext Editor.
  • The Arbortext Adapter to Documentum/WDK is not aware of Documentum Docbase changes not made from within Arbortext Editor. If you check in or check out using the Browser or using a standalone Webtop interface, Arbortext Editor will not be aware that the document state has changed.

Re: Trail version for EMC Documentum repository connector

OK now i am learning a bit.

Documentum/XML--> Thick client to install on workstation.

Documentum/WDK/WebTop --> Thin client / Web Client plugins to work with XML file in repository.

If my above assumption is corect, i need at present trail version of Documentum/XML only. That link is provide in above thread / dicussion.

Also, I where can i find the PDF document of compatibility version for Arbortext 6.1 ? snippet you have takem from document , need that document for reference. Can you mail me or attache in thread or provide link so i can download ?
