    Hi Steffen,

    well, let's kick off the discussion (not sure if this is the direction you want to head into but I guess finding that out is one purpose of this discussion) 😊 :

    The two SAP partners IXOS (for Doculink) and FileNet (for P8) developed connectors to those repositories and can be contacted for details on them as they own the rights for these connectors.

    Further partners are in the process of developing connectors.

    Inside SAP, various connectors for SAP products have been developed or are in development (DMS, BW, cFolders...).

    For NetWeaver '04, additional documentation and Eclipse plugins will be delivered as part of support package stack 4.

    Customers might also have started with development of repository managers and I would be interested in hearing those opinions and experiences (especially what other material would be helpful).

    can I avoid restarting the J2EE-Engine each time I upload a "Repository Manager"-par-file to see the changes?

    • Hi Detlev,

      unfortunately reloading classes without portal restart will not be possible before SPS11. But even then the restriction is, that static references in KM components have to be devalidated during unload and re-initialized during restart, or much better: don't use static references.

      Best regards,

    We are investigating the topic Repository Manager and started by using the example from Thilo Brandt "Simple Repository Manager".

    The simple repository manager is now up and running,

    but we want to be able to <b>search and find the documents provided by the repository</b> (in this case the file system).

    For testing purposes I put 3 html documents and 2 text documents in the repository (C:/temp) and tried to index them.

    None of the documents can be prepared:

    I get the following error:

    Error 8002: Unknown Hostname, Preparation failed.

    Has anybody an idea what might be the problem?

      Hello Thilo,

      I solved the problem a few months ago.

      However, thank you very much for your answer.

      The problem had been that I worked with VMware and TREX was installed on another machine. So the portal on the VMware provided TREX with an URL not accessible from outside the VMware image.

      As I only need TREX for a few testing purposes,

      I installed it on the VMware image with the Portal as well.

      Today I only edited my message.
