Dctm VFS Provider Developer Documentation

For development you'll need the following:

  • Maven 2 (I'm currently using 2.0.7)
  • The EMC Documentum DFC classes (e.g. v5.3)

Installation of the DFCs

To be able to use the DFCs in a Maven build you'll have to register them in your local Maven 2 repository. Maven provides a standard function for this

 mvn install:install-file -DgroupId=dctm -DartifactId=dfc \
     -Dversion=5.3 -Dpackaging=jar -Dfile=/path/to/file

Maven usage

The following maven goals are of particular interest

  • mvn compile: compiles the sources
  • mvn package: create the jar file
  • mvn site: creates the website
