xCP 2.0 Developer Edition?

The last time I checked, there were no plans to release a Developer Edition of the xCP 2.0 platform like there was for xCP 1.x. Too bad; the Developer Edition was a great way to get an environment up and running quickly for learning or demo purposes. The closest thing I have seen to a “developer edition” for xCP 2.0 is the product configuration I used during training.

This configuration required two VMware servers (the minimum configuration) as follows:

Server 1

  • BAM Server Process Integrator
  • Process Engine
  • Document Image Services
  • xCP Viewer DAR
  • Content Server
  • Java Method Server
  • Repository
  • xCP 2.0 Runtime Libraries
  • tcServer
  • Thumbnail Server
  • SQL Server 2008 R2

Server 2

  • Content Intelligence Services
  • Content Transformation Services
  • xPlore
  • Documentum Administrator
  • xMS Agent

Both of these virtual servers were configured as:

  • Win 2008 R2 x64
  • 2 CPUs
  • 4 GB RAM
  • 50 GB disk

It’s not a one-click install and you must have a licensed version of SQL Server, but it does work without too much pain.

I have heard from some brave folks who have made this work on a single VMware server with 6GB of RAM (8GB would be preferred).  I have also heard a rumor that there are also plans to release details for configuring the platform to run with Oracle on a single VMware image. The details of that configuration are due out in a white paper soon. Remember, all things xCP can be found here: https://community.emc.com/docs/DOC-4209.

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.
