Divine Inc. this week rolled out Version 5.0 of its Content Server, which adds new document management and classification capabilities as well as expanded support for Web services.
Aiming to give business users a larger role in the content management process, the DocLink feature is designed to simplify content check in and retrieval by letting users drag and drop documents into the Content Server, according to divine officials. DocLink also supports metadata insertion, revision tracking, and workflow initiation directly within Windows Explorer. Leveraging taxonomy technology divine acquired from Northern Light, the Autoclassifier capability can automatically categorize and tag content into the Content Server.
Other features added in Version 5.0 include Asset Filters, which automate the transformation of 220 document formats, including Microsoft Word and Excel, into HTML or XML when a document is saved to Content Server, according to Brian Plantz, vice president of product management. Filters can also be chained together to create processes, he said.
The Java-based Content Server also gains expanded support for Web services designed to let enterprises easily share content and business logic with partners and to develop custom content applications, divine said. A set of predefined Web services can be used by any Web application to dynamically access and present content within that application and to develop custom Web services.
