What’s in xCP 2.0?

Remember when xCP 1.o was announced?  It was a little difficult to get your arms around exactly what it was.  My interpretation was that it was a stack of Documentum products bundled and licensed as a platform for developing (composing) ECM solutions, but not really a new product, per se.

Well, xCP 2.0 is a new product, but it is also still a stack of existing products.  Does this help alleviate some of the confusion?  Sort of.  You still can’t point to a specific thing and say, “that’s xCP.”  Unchanged is xCP’s mission to be Documentum’s platform of choice for custom ECM applications.

What exactly is in the xCP 2.0 stack?  According to the release notes:

  • Documentum Administrator (DA) 7.0
  • Documentum Business Activity Monitor (BAM) 2.0 
  • Documentum Content Intelligence Services (CIS) 7.0 
  • Documentum Content Server 7.0
  • Documentum Content Transformation Services (CTS) 7.0
  • Documentum Document Image Services (DIS) 7.0
  • Documentum Foundation Classes (DFC) 7.0
  • Documentum Process Engine 2.0
  • Documentum Process Integrator 2.0
  • Documentum Thumbnail Server 7.0
  • Documentum xPlore 1.3
  • Documentum xCP Designer 2.0
  • Documentum xCP Runtime 2.0
  • Documentum xCP Viewer Services 2.0
  • Documentum xMS Agent 1.0

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.

    Hi there, I am wondering about the version of the BAM & Process Engine… are they suppose to be 6.7 (or 7.0)? Because I don’t see why EMC will change the version from 6.x back to 2.0 for these product (nor I can find them in subscribenet)…


    • Scott says:

      Good question. When I checked the release notes I found this regarding BAM and PE: These products are versioned to be aligned with the xCP 2.0 and D7 release. The previous versions of these products, such as D6.7 SP1 and below, are not compatible with xCP 2.0.


    • Ahson Ahmad (Group Product Manager - xCP & D2) says:

      We decided to align the version numbers with xCP because those products don’t have a life (from a licensing perspective) outside of xCP (at least not currently).

    I checked the subscribenet one more time. I believe the version # you listed are correct. For some unknown reason, BAM and PE are listed under xCP Runtime with the version 2.0. Not sure the logic behind it… but hey, this is EMC we are talking about :-).

    I don’t understanding why they just not put all the components in one installation package and let the client installed them based on the activation keys they have. Pretty darn silly to download every component one at a time.
