Captiva 7 Web Services Tutorial

I am pleased to announce the availability of my Captiva 7 Web Services Output (WSO) Tutorial.  In this paper I explain how to use the Captiva Web Service Output (WSO) module.  The tutorial walks through creating web services to be consumed by WSO, setting up the CaptureFlow containing WSO, configuring WSO, and testing the entire process from end-to-end.  The tutorial presents a simple use case which requires Captiva to interface with, extract metadata from, and import scanned documents into a case management system — all via web services.

As with my previous Captiva tutorial, this tutorial is a result of plunging head-first into a project and finding no useful, publicly available resources to assist me.  This paper chronicles my findings and offers source code as a starting point for others.

You can find the tutorial here, on my Publications page, and on the EDN.  Enjoy!

I welcome any feedback.

Documentum REST Services Tutorials

In the recent weeks I have run across a spate of Documentum REST services tutorials online.  I thought them good enough to share, so here they are:

William Zhou has developed and posted several good Documentum REST Services tutorials on the ECN:

Here is a previous dm_misc post with links to the Documentum REST Services developers’ guide and another tutorial –

Let me know if you have or know of others, I will add them to the list.


EMC Documentum REST Services 7

In June EMC quietly announced the availability of Documentum REST Services Version 7.0. Here is the announcement. Documentum REST Services is a RESTful web service implementation for interacting with Documentum repositories. This should make it easier to develop/integrate with Web2.0 and mobile apps.   REST Services supports two formats for resource representation:  JSON and XML (Atom for collections, and Documentum XML for non-collection resources).  Here is the developer’s guide, and a tutorial.  REST Services 7.0 is compatible with Content Server 7.0, 6.7 SP2, and 6.7 (no 6.7 SP1?).
