“The Basics” Series

I have been kicking around an idea to run a recurring series of posts demonstrating basic Documentum DFC programming techniques.  The idea will be to demonstrate techniques to implement DFC operations programmers routinely implement, like logging on/off, running queries, creating jobs, checking out objects, etc.  in short, concise, and best practice code snippets.  These are operations that everyone has (re)written a hundred times and should be kept in a library JAR file instead of recreated every time they are needed.  Having said that, perhaps you have a library JAR of operations you would like to share?

If you are new to Documentum and looking for DFC best practices and code examples, this series will be for you.  To find all of the posts in this series, search the tag library for “The Basics”.  Look for the first post of this series soon, with others to follow at random intervals.

There have been several “The Basics” topics previously covered in this blog already, in addition to some that are not-so-basic.  The following topics may only be touched upon in this series since they have been covered in depth previously:

UPDATE:  I have created a DCTMBasics JAR file that contains most of the code discussed in this series.


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.

    nice idea. I was thinking about developing some tools and publish them to github. If you have some public repo, post url and I will push some tools in future.

      I don’t have a public repo other than what is attached to this blog. I can host any tools you would like to submit, but probably the easier thing to do is you send me the URL to where ever you publish them.
