D2 Starter Project

October 29th, 2015 by Scott Roth

As you know from a previous post, I bothers me that out-of-the-box, D2 does NOTHING.  In an effort to help validate D2 v4.5 installations and provide a test environment for my DQL Editor widget, I developed a simple “starter” application that I named “D-Top”.  D-Top provides simple, unrestricted navigation of a Docbase, shows default dm_sysobject properties, versions, audit trails, renditions, object locations, and workflow tasks.  It provides search capabilities, virtual document support, and bookmarks for checked out objects and subscribed objects.  You can create and import documents, as well as check them in and out.  Nothing has been “customized” for specific users, roles, object types, ACLs, or lifecycles.

I had several goals in mind while developing this application:

  • First, to provide a way for developers and users to quickly  validate a D2 installations.  If this application works and allows you to perform basic repository functions, you can conclude that D2 is installed correctly and is ready for you to develop your own applications.
  • To provide a “starter application” (more generic than the HR Sample configuration provided with D2 v4.2) upon which to build other applications.
  • Lastly, so that D2 now does something useful out-of-the box (more or less).

If you are interested in the “D-Top” D2 starter project, you can download it here.  Once downloaded, import it into D2-Config like you would import any other D2 configuration.  See the EMC Documentum D2 v4.5 Administration Guide for instructions regarding importing D2 configurations.

If you are interested in what else Armedia can do with D2, leave us a comment.

Access Activiti Through an Apache Reverse Proxy with SSL

October 19th, 2015 by Paul Combs

Activiti is a light-weight workflow and Business Process Management (BPM) Platform.  There seems to be sufficient documentation to get a copy up and running for older versions of this offering.  Documentation for the newer versions could use a rewrite.  After setting up instance of Activiti (version 5.18.0) in one environment, the goal shifted to running it behind an Apache Reverse Proxy (RP) with SSL.  A  configuration file for the Apache RP was created like so.

# http://mycoolsite.com/activiti-explorer
        ProxyPass /activiti-explorer
        ProxyPassReverse /activiti-explorer

Sparse support may be found for modifications that are needed to the server.xml file. That support plus using bits and pieces from other application installs resulted in a server.xml that looks like this.

    <Connector port="8080"

The key to successfully implementing the SSL is the added line of secure=”true”. Without that one line, the site didn’t load properly.  This is a line that I hadn’t implemented in configuring other applications of a similar configuration. Hopefully this little nugget will prove useful to your installation and configuration of Activiti.
