Documentum Composer 6.6 on Mac Osx 10.6.6

splash screenAfter 5 years as employee, last February I left EMC. Now I am partner of a new company named Next 2U Consulting, based in Rome.

I returned my Dell D630 to the EMC it staff and I bought a fantastic MacBook Pro with OSX 10.6.6. No problems for my Windows programs: I can run those on a VMware images.

Before that I used Documentum Composer on a Ubuntu 10.4 without any problem. I configured Documentum Composer on OSX 10.6.6: it works and it is fast! This is the … recipe:

  1. Download Eclipse 3.4 (Ganymede) for Mac (here the link)
  2. Extract the tar file in your preferred path, let’s say /users/yuri/appz/myComposer
  3. Run Eclipse, then click Help ->Software Updates->Available Software->Ganymede->Uncategorized->EMF Validation Framework SDK xxx.
  4. After the update, Eclipse will restart automatically. Close Eclipse
  5. Download Documentum Composer 6.6 from Powerlink
  6. Extract the DCTM_Composer_R.6.6.zip on a temporary folder, let’s say /tmp/composer
  7. Copy all jars files and folders beginning with “com.emc.ide%” from the /tmp/composer/features and/tmp/composer/plugins into /users/yuri/appz/myComposer/dropins folder

That’s it!

I like perfection, so I love to see the correct splash screen during Composer startup. If you like perfection too, complete this optional step:

  • copy the /tmp/composer/plugins/org.eclipse.platform_3.3.100.v200806172000/
    splash.bmp into/eclipse/plugins/org.eclipse.platform_3.3.101.v200902111700/splash.bmp

Let me know your experience on that!
