With XMetaL Author Enterprise for Documentum Webtop, you can now create XML content with unparalleled speed and ease. Together, XMetaL and Documentum provide everything your company needs to create, share, reuse, and deliver XML content in any format, for any destination.
With this version, XMetaL Author Enterprise for Documentum Webtop is certified for use with EMC's D6.7 SP2 release . Our Documentum connector software no longer supports EMC's D5.3, D6, or D6.5 releases.
Also new for this release, the software extends functionality and is certified for use under Windows 7 operating systems.
Please refer to Section "Logging in to the repository" in XMetaL Author for Documentum Webtop User's Guide.
All DITA reference dialogs (except for web reference dialogs) support "Search" Capability.
The user needs to login Webtop via web browser at lease once before using the integration.
If a security warning appears during the course of a repository operation like check-in and the warning is asking if you want to "Block potentially unsave components from being run" and notes the application is "CheckinContainer_LaunchRuntimeApplet_0", choose "Don't Block" so the operation completes normally.
This security warning can be suppressed by the following steps (Win7):
If you see these error messages when installing the software, it is because there is an older version of XMetaL Author Enterprise still on the system. Please remove the older software and install the latest version first as outlined in the "Client-side" installation requirements above.
It is possible to uninstall the XMetaL Author Enterprise for Documentum Webtop software while XMetaL Author Enterprise is still running. If you do this, certain functions will stop working and trigger exceptions. Please stop the XMetaL Author software first before removing the software.
Tracking changes of markup that contain parent-child relationships like those of the topicref elements in a ditamap can lead to issues at checkin time. Documentum will ask you to located the topic referenced by the topicref that was previously a tracked delection. Please use caution when undoing tracked deletions of parent-child relationships or consider a best practise appropriate for your organisation. This issue is not specific to XMetaL and can occur when using Documentum in a stand-alone manner.
If an image element has a conref attribute specified, then you may not be able to check-in the parent document. This is likely because the image's href attribute has a '-dita-use-conref-target' attribute value specified (per OASIS DITA spec). But, the DocApp's link-rule for image href values triggers Documentum into attempting to follow this '-dita-use-conref-target' href value.
A feature request has been submitted to EMC to address this issue. But for now, please work-around this issue by not conref-ing images...just link direct to the particular image.
JustSystems doesn't not test or recommend people use Documentum's chunking configuration in DocApps designated for DITA content. XMetaL Author Enterprise's DITA features are implemented in accordance with the OASIS DITA specification where applicable. As a result, invoking a DITA operation where chunked markup is operated upon may result in unknown side-effects and problems.
Updating references is unsuccessful if file A that contains a link to another file B, after editing file B and checking it in with the 'Same version' option selected. This issue resolves itself when file B is no longer in the Documentum client-side cache and fetched from the server again.
Currently, the XMetaL connector for Documentum only allows users to choose an image that was previously imported into Documentum. Though Documentum supports automatic-importing of referenced images from the local computer (upon check-in of a xml document), the XMetaL-Documentum connector doesn't support creating/editing image href values outside of Documentum.
The XMetaL team is looking to address this issue in a future release and for now, you must import the image prior making references to it within DITA content.
After you install XMetaL Enterprise Edition and Webtop integration and then jre1.6 in this order and then try to create or open a document, the security warning dialog ('digital signature verified') does not appear. XMetaL continues to show the 'Initializing plug-in' page. Workaround: If you log into Webtop and then open XMetaL, the security warning appears when creating or opening a document.
Occasionally, some actions may cause an unexpected error 'Unable to display an error as an exception is not set'. Workaround: If this error appears only once, continue with the process that triggered it. If it appears consecutively, clean up Internet Explorer cache and re-launch XMetaL while pressing the Control key.
