WCM Localization Tool

Challenge

Localizing content within Documentum can be a tedious and time-consuming process.  Out of the Box, WebPublisher is designed to work with only one file at a time.  This is an issue if entire websites or even sections of a website needs to be localized into a new locale.  

Solution

TSG has developed a WDK based Localization Tool which exists within the WebPublisher Interface.  Users are able to select entire web cabinets or folders for localization and then select any number of locales to create copies of the existing content. The Localization Tool greatly reduces the effort for localizing large volumes of content.

Benefits

  • Localize all content within a folder and its sub-folders.
  • Localize to one or more languages simultaneously.
  • Display log of actions performed.

RSS Generation Tool

Challenge

Content created within WebPublisher needs to be syndicated to multiple applications.  An additional requirement may be to have the content you are producing to be available outside of your organization, such as RSS Readers; Yahoo! and Google homepages; etc.  

Solution

TSG's RSS Generation Tool creates a REST based Webservice layer on top of your Site Cache Repository.  Any number of applications can request content from this repository over HTTP.  The data returned is structured in a configurable format that can transformed using many existing applications.  By using configurable caches within the tool, data is returned to the requesting application extremely fast.

Benefits

  • Many applications - one content store.
  • All communication for the repository to the application is over HTTP.
  • Abstraction layer between applications and underlying database.
  • Caching allows for fast return of results.

Site Navigation Tool

Challenge

When the reviewers and the authors are ready to starting editing content, it is difficult for them to find the individual piece of content in Web Publisher.  Visualizing the site's navigational structure can be difficult when content is located in categorized folders.   Updates to the site's navigation are time consuming and tedious.

Solution

TSG created a navigational tool which uses a WDK customization to manage the sites hierarchy in Web Publishers left navigation pane.  This allows authors to manage the site's structure within Web Publisher in one central location, and have easy access to locate and edit content associated with the navigational page.

Benefits

  • Familiar navigation to find content for editing.
  • Simplicity of adding, removing, renaming, and re-sorting pages
