Documentum and UTF-8: Converting Content Management Software Product Line to Unicode
||Manager, Software Engineer, Systems Analyst
Documentum is the leading provider of content management solutions, based on our
scalable platform that drives eBusiness connections. Documentum has recently
re-engineered its entire product line to use UTF-8 Unicode throughout.
Documentum's architecture includes an RDBMS layer (several vendors are
supported), a core server (running on multiple operating systems), as well as
Web Server and Client, plus MS desktop applications. A major challenge was
preserving backward compatibility with existing client applications. The talk
will focus on Software Engineering lessons learned.
