xCP 1.6 Sample Application Tutorial – Mail Manager

I recently implemented the sample xCP 1.6 Mail Manager application following the tutorial, and it was an absolute pleasure going through it. There was no real problem encountered with the documentation or with the execution of the steps. The small issues that I had to deal with included some differences in the screenshots (such as Model Type field missing when creating a type in TaskSpace) and a missing step (I was expecting the step by the time I got there, so it’s easy to catch) in composing the application in TaskSpace.

I was expecting some issues as my Documentum environment is set up on Hyper-V VMs, which are not listed in the supported infrastructure. Also, I am using the 64-bit version of the Content Server.  No patches are installed though patch 6 is available at this time. My Documentum setup is summarized below:

Content Server Host

Content Server 6.7 SP1 (64-bit)
Oracle 11.2.0.2 (64-bit)
Windows 2008 R2 SP1 Enterprise (64-bit) (Hyper-V VM)

Application Server Host

Documentum applications 6.7 SP1
Tomcat 6.0.32 (64-bit)
Java 6 u33 (64-bit)
Windows 2008 R2 SP1 Enterprise (64-bit) (Hyper-V VM)

Client/Developer Desktop

Internet Explorer 9.0.9
Java 6 u33 (32-bit)
Windows 7 Ultimate Sp1 (64-bit) (Hyper-V VM)

The xCP 1.5 version of the tutorial may be found on the EMC Community Network. The xCP 1.6 version is available on Powerlink and in the download area.

While following this tutorial was easy, it took quite some patience to get all the products in the xCP bundle set up properly. For example, I installed BAM on Tomcat on the app server host and not on the Java Method Server, and that meant performing various installation steps manually. Spending time on the installation guides for all Documentum components is highly recommended.
