xCP2.1 Now Available

In case you missed it, the long-awaited xCP 2.1 release is now available from the EMC download site.

For all things xCP, see the xCP space on ECN: https://community.emc.com/docs/DOC-4209?CID=ECN

Here are a few highlights from the 2.1 release:

  • Type adoption – provides the ability to reuse type definition already existing in a repository. This should be a huge enabler for customers wanting to migrate to xCP 2.1.
  • xCP REST Services – enables developers to build mobile UI and native apps that connect to Documentum xCP applications using generated application-specific REST Services.
  • Process versioning – allows multiple versions of a process to co-exist at design time and at runtime, enabling developers to maintain different versions of a process so that updates follow a new path and older versions are not impacted.
  • Process debugging – enables developers to debug a process at design time, identifying and resolving potential issues.
  • Page fragments – widgets and associated data service instances that can be used to compose parts of a page dynamically, and are reusable in one or more pages of an application.
  • UI events – delivers a true decoupled UI design by facilitating indirect communication between different page elements and services enabling developers to create a more interactive user experience.
  • Type fragments – allows a dynamic data modeling experience by exposing at runtime the capability to attach new attributes and new behaviors to any object type. Type fragments can be shared across multiple object types and used within the object context to enhance the behavior of the application. This sounds an awful lot like Java Aspects!

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.
