Documentum Repoint Resurrected!

I guess everyone using Documentum on a daily basis knows what dqMan and repoint applications are. Life of a Documentum developer would be very difficult if those tools were not available. I tried so many times to get used to dqMan but I simply couldn’t, there is just something wrong with the User Interface…So even though repoint application felt like ‘beta’ version I was still preferring using repoint to dqMan.

I’ve had this plan since long time ago to restart development of repoint as it seems like the original author abandoned the project. And it finally happened. I have just committed a Maven friendly repoint project to github:

https://github.com/karolbe/repoint-r

If you would like to play with it you can grab the sources and use Maven to build it, just run:

mvn clean install

and after some time you will find repoint application for your architecture (linux, windows, macos) in following folder: repoint-eclipse-repository/target/products/Repoint

So far I have only removed some deprecated RCP code but I have some bigger plans for that application. Depending on my spare time I am going to work on:

* ACL editor
* Trusted Content Services support

and of course fix issues and improve usability.
