Documentum Bulk Export Tool v1.4

I just updated the Documentum bulk export tool, QuikDIE, to version 1.4.  You can download it here.  More info about the tool can be found in  previous posts here and here.  Be sure to read the comments.

Updates in this version include:

  • Compiled using Java 1.7
  • updated JDOM library to 2.0.
  • check for supported DFC version (only 6.5 and later)
  • export a_antecedent_id so version tree can be reconstructed
  • updated batch file to use dctm.jar (Hopefully this will eliminate the java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: org/apache/commons/lang/StringEscapeUtils error some have reported.  This class is found in the commons-lang-2.4.jar.)

Check it out and let me know what you think.





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.

    I’m not a programmer. I’m a researcher with access to a client’s web-based Documentum. Can you please guide me on how to use QuikDIE? Many thanks.

    Could you give me some hints to fix this problem ? Many Thanks !


    • Scott says:

      There is a problem with your class path and the DFC can’t find the Apache Strings JAR file. Not that this JAR was renamed a few versions back so if you are using a newer version of Java with an older version of the DFC there might be a disconnect. I have solved this problem in the past by renaming the JAR file (or creating a copy with the correct name).
