Community xCelerator xChange

Since I seem to be on an xCP kick lately, I thought I would pass on a few more useful resources on the EDN related to xCP.

  • Community xCelerator xChange Homepage (https://community.emc.com/docs/DOC-7597)  – The purpose of this page is to give the xCP community the ability to share their own xCelerators with each other in an open source fashion.  (An xCelerator is one or more assets that can be used to accelerate the creation, adoption, and/or implementation of an xCP solution. An xCelerator is not necessarily a complete, running application; instead, it is intended to hasten application development by providing key pieces of functionality.)  Posts can come from anyone.  The goal is to promote the sharing of sample solutions and assets within the community to further reduce xCP implementation time and to promote new ideas on how to use xCP.  This page has seen a lot of activity in the past few weeks with some cool xCelerators being posted (like RM and video).  Look here before beginning your xCP project to see if someone has already solved your “hard problem”.
  • xCelerator Homepage (https://community.emc.com/docs/DOC-6143) – This page houses EMC-submitted xCelerators.  Here you will find xCelerators like the Grants Management application and TaskSpace Advanced Search.
  • xCP Design Pattern Catalog (https://community.emc.com/docs/DOC-7312) – The xCP Design Pattern Catalog allows the xCP community to share xCP patterns in a collaborative fashion.  (An xCP Design Pattern is a description of how to solve a particular business or functional need within xCP.) Posts can come from anyone. The purpose is to promote the sharing of knowledge within the community to further reduce xCP implementation time and to explore new ideas on how to use xCP.  This page has also seen a lot of activity lately with some great patterns being posted (like looping and merging in a process).  You should also check here while implementing your xCP solution to make sure you are following best practices.  You should also search the EDN for patterns that aren’t linked to the Catalog, such as the Exclusive Choice (https://community.emc.com/docs/DOC-8521).

About Scott
I have been implementing Documentum solutions since 1997. In 2005, I published a book about developing Documentum solutions for the Documentum Desktop Client (ISBN 0595339689). In 2010, I began this blog as a record of interesting and (hopefully) helpful bits of information related to Documentum, and as a creative outlet.
