D2 4.2 Developer Edition (Unofficial)

Now that we have a D7 Developer Edition and an xCP 2.1 Developer Edition, a D2 4.2 Developer Edition must be right around the corner, right?  Well, I haven’t heard anything official about such an offering, but there is a great post on the ECN by Alvaro de Andres describing how to create your own D2 4.2 Developer Edition.  Give it a try until EMC releases an official D2 Developer Edition.

UPDATE:  I have had the opportunity to try this myself and offer the following notes:

  • In the image’s default shell, tcsh, to set environment variables you must use the setenv command
  • On the image, Documentum is installed in the dctm directory, not documentum.  You will need to update all the paths accordingly.
  • On the image, JBoss is installed in the dfc_shared directory, not it’s normal location.  You will need to update the paths accordingly.

At last! xCP 2.1 Developer Edition Available

As promised, EMC has produced a free xCP 2.1 Developer Edition.  See the details here, https://community.emc.com/community/edn/documentum/blog/2014/09/21/xcp-21-developer-edition-readyset-go-build-an-app, or download it directly here, https://developer-content.emc.com/downloads/xCP_dev_edition.htm.

In summary, here is what the xCP 2.1 Developer Edition includes:

  • Fully installed and configured virtual image that requires no licensing
  • CentOS 6.4
  • PostgresSQL 9.2
  • Tomcat 7.0
  • Java 1.7.0_17
  • Content Server 7.1
  • DA 7.1
  • Documentum REST Services 7.1
  • DFC 7.1
  • xCP 2.1

Note that these features of xCP are not available in the Developer Edition (yet):

  • BAM
  • CIS
  • xPlore
  • CTS

Download and enjoy the convenience of a pre-installed, pre-configured, compact xCP 2.1 development environment.  Remember:  this developer release is not designed — nor licensed — for production use.

Documentum 7.1 Developer’s Edition Available

Bottom line first, download it here: https://developer-content.emc.com/downloads/documentum_dev_edition.htm

The long-awaited D7.1 Developer’s Edition is finally available (and on schedule!). This new incarnation of the Dev Edition is built upon a completely open source stack and is freely available  for non-production use. This release of the Dev Edition focuses on the new Documentum REST web services, and includes the following Documentum components:

  • Documentum Content Server 7.1 (with repository)
  • Documentum REST Services 7.1
  • DFC 7.1
  • Documentum Administrator 7.1

The open source infrastructure consists of the following:

  • CentOS 6.4
  • PostgreSQL 9.2
  • Apache Tomcat 7.0.50
  • Java

According to the official announcement (here), this is a “perpetual beta”, meaning EMC encourages feedback and comments (using the dev_edition tag) so the next release can benefit from your experiences, input, and wishes.

Happy downloading, and happy developing!
