An upgrade to Xerox Corp.'s DocuShare 3.0 document management application now has workflow and Web services tools.
New enterprise infrastructure connectors integrate the application with existing directories and relational database management systems such as Oracle9i and Microsoft SQL Server, group product manager Colman Murphy said.
The underlying architecture of DocuShare has been rewritten in Java but still works with Microsoft Corp. standards, Murphy said.Collaborative editing
DocuShare 3.0 understands the new Web Distributed Authoring and Versioning standard, he said. WebDAV, a set of extensions to Hypertext Transfer Protocol, lets users collaboratively edit DocuShare documents on any desktop PC without additional client software. DocuShare 3.0 runs under Microsoft Windows NT, Windows 2000, Sun Solaris 2.7 or higher versions and Red Hat Linux 7.3. Minimum hardware requirements are a 600-MHz Intel Pentium III or Sun UltraSparc II processor and at least 512M of RAM.
The Xerox application also requires Apache 2.x Web Server, Microsoft Internet Information Server 4.0 or higher versions or Sun One Web Server (iPlanet 6.0).
DocuShare 3.0 lists for $3,495 per server and $65 per user.
