Technical Notes
Hardware Requirements
This section describes the minimum hardware requirements for operation of Livelink
WCM Server. The respective values can be found in the table at the end of this
section.
The essential active software components of Livelink WCM Server are located on a
third-party hardware server system. As a result, the main load (for maintenance of
the intranet or Internet websites) is carried by this server. Please note that the
system requirements stated in the following merely represent the minimum
requirements for the server. If complex and extensive websites are to be managed,
the performance of the hardware used may have to be modified accordingly by the
customer.
For the basic installation of the Livelink WCM Server components, disk space should
be available on the relevant server system as indicated in table “Hardware
requirements”. The value indicated does not include the necessary disk space for
installation and operation of the HTTP server used, the database system, and the
JSP engine/application server (if applicable).
In addition, disk space is required for the digital content you create and maintain
with Livelink WCM Server. No default value can be given for this disk space
requirement, since it depends primarily on the type, number, and size of the
content to be managed. Accordingly, generous disk space should be provided for
these components when planning the system architecture.
For the clients, a distinction must be made between the requirements for users
working as authors on the one hand, and for end-user workstations on the other
hand. End users are intranet or Internet users. The hardware requirements for
“author” systems are higher than for “end-user” systems.
All values given here are to be understood as minimum values based on the use of
Livelink WCM Server in combination with a web browser. Requirements for any
other programs in use must be added to these values.

Here, no general specification can be made about the network load caused by
operating Livelink WCM Server. In the case of very large installations with
numerous users, it may be advisable to set up distributed proxy servers in order to
reduce the load on the master server and the network architecture. Proxy servers
can cache frequently requested information (either static or dynamic information)
and thereby carry part of the network load.
For productive operation of Livelink WCM Server, an adequate network architecture
in a failure-free operation is required. This includes both bandwidths provided in
accordance with the requirements and correctly operating network components
(TCP/IP stack, network adapters, lines, routers, switches, firewalls, etc.). The
availability of a suitable network environment should be provided by the operator of
Livelink WCM Server already in the planning phase and is neither included in the
scope of supply nor is it subject to the responsibility of Open Text. This also applies
to the access of the clients for editing objects to Livelink WCM Server.
Page 10
Release Notes – Livelink WCM Server
Software Requirements
The following standard products are required for operating Livelink WCM Server:
•

There is no obligation of Open Text to provide a backward fix of the original
problems if vendors of third-party products decide to stop their support of the
respective versions. Customers who run into these problems have the option to
upgrade to a newer Livelink WCM Server version. With every new version of
Livelink WCM Server, Open Text is keen to support the latest versions of the
involved third-party products in order to provide a smooth upgrade path for its
customers. This holds true for all third-party products, e.g. Java Virtual Machines,
application servers, browsers, operating systems, and databases.

Notes
•
For Microsoft Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox, the Java plug-in 1.5 or 1.6
by Sun Microsystems is supported.
•
For Mozilla Firefox: Problems with the graphical user interface may occur.
However, these problems do not affect the functionality of the Content Client.
•
The browser must allow additional browser windows to open. Make sure that the
“Popup blocker” feature is disabled.
•
For Internet Explorer 8 be sure to enable the following setting to avoid that the browser
opens always new windows. ‘Tools -> Internet Options -> Security -> Custom Level ->
Miscellaneous -> Navigate windows and frames across different domains’. It is also possible to add
the domain to the Local Sites. The above setting is enabled in this zone.
•
For the Content Workflow Modeler, Java Web Start 1.5 or 1.6 must be used. It
is supplied with the J2SE SDK/JRE 1.5 or 1.6 and is also available separately
(http://java.sun.com/products/javawebstart/). The Content Workflow Modeler
can be executed as a separate application. For this purpose, the J2SE SDK/JRE
1.5 or 1.6 is required which can be downloaded at
http://java.sun.com/javase/downloads/index.html.
•
The Java plug-in 1.5 or 1.6 must be used for the integrated HTML editor of the
Content Client and of InSite Editing.
•
The Content Client (Classic) only supports UTF-8 encoding if all components
used (database, HTTP server, JSP engine, and browser) are configured
accordingly.
Page 14
Release Notes – Livelink WCM Server
General Note
Open Text cannot assume any liability for the correct functionality of the browsers.
Page 15
Release Notes – Livelink WCM Server
Relational Database
The website objects are stored in a relational database.
For this purpose, only the database systems listed in the following table in the
version indicated are supported:
Supported database systems
Database system
Oracle 9.i Standard Edition Release 2 (9.2.0)
Oracle Database 10g Release 1 (10.1.0.2)
Oracle Database 10g Release 2 (10.2)
Microsoft SQL Server 2000
Microsoft SQL Server 2005
Notes
•
The performance of Livelink WCM Server strongly depends on the speed of the
JDBC driver used. Please also note the restrictions of the respective
manufacturer (supported platforms, etc.).
•
The JDBC driver for Oracle and Microsoft SQL Server 2005 may have to be
replaced by a current JDBC driver of the database installation.
•
The JDBC driver used for Microsoft SQL Server must be compatible to the
Microsoft SQL JDBC driver. A driver for Microsoft SQL Server 2000 is not
supplied with the product CD.
•
The SQL database should use a case-sensitive encoding (Collation name
parameter), if possible “SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CS_AS”.
•
In case of Livelink WCM Server websites with a large number of objects, it was
observed that the response time behavior of Oracle was significantly better than
that of Microsoft SQL Server 2000. This behavior was also observed when many
objects were assigned a template. Also, we recommend the use of distributed
data storage when using Microsoft SQL Server 2000.
•
For high traffic websites, Open Text encourages to enable the new snapshot
isolation level of Microsoft SQL Server 2005. This level avoids reader-writer
blocking scenarios. See http://msdn2.microsoft.com/enus/library/tcbchxcb.aspx for details.
General Note
Open Text cannot assume any liability for the correct functionality of the JDBC
drivers.

Release Notes – Livelink WCM Server
Secure Access
Secure Access is the access control component of Livelink WCM Server. It offers the
possibility to extend the access control functionality – which is automatically part of
the Edit and QA views – to the Production view. This makes it possible to control
access to all objects in a website on an object-specific basis in productive operation
(i.e. also on the intranet or Internet).
Please note that only static content that is accessed via HTTP can be protected with
Secure Access. Active content accessing other objects, such as Content Assembly
objects, may circumvent Secure Access.
At present, Secure Access is only supported for the combinations of server
operating system, HTTP server, and JSP engine/application server listed in the table
and marked with an “x”. If the JSP engine supports the servlet API 2.3, the use of
Secure Access as a filter is mandatory.

Release Notes – Livelink WCM Server
Livelink WCM Server Installation
We recommend that you carry out the concept planning process and installation of
Livelink WCM Server together with Open Text.
For the installation of third-party products such as RDBMS and LDAP directory
service, only those installation and configuration aspects are described in the
Livelink WCM Server documentation that are relevant to the integration of these
products with Livelink WCM Server. The Livelink WCM Server documentation does
not contain a complete description of the installation of the supported third-party
products. For this purpose, please refer to the documentation of the manufacturer.
Page 27
Release Notes – Livelink WCM Server
Known Restrictions
Livelink WCM Server offers all the functions described in the documentation
relevant for this software version, subject to the restrictions described in this
chapter.
1.
If no graphical user interface can be used, you must execute the
installation as a console installation.
2.
JSP engine
If multiple websites are deployed with server-relative deployment
systems and if the associated objects belong to a web application running
in a JSP engine, the file system paths must be unique.
When communicating in servlet mode and via HTTP, the WCM server is
unable to check whether the JSP engine is configured correctly and is
running. In case of misconfiguration and malfunction of the JSP engine, the
WCM server is not accessible.
When Resin or Tomcat is to be used as JSP engine in connection with
WebServices, the configuration of the JSP engine must be modified. For
information on the configuration, contact Technical Support.
When Tomcat is used as JSP engine, the attribute reloadable= "true"
cannot be used. Otherwise, the WCM server running in the JSP engine is
restarted each time changed classes are reloaded.
It was observed that the WebSphere Application Server changed the
manifest file of the Java archives in some cases. After this, the Download
applet of the Content Client could no longer be used.
(java.lang.SecurityException: invalid SHA1 signature file
digest for ...)
To avoid this problem, exchange the Java archives after deployment of the
web application.
For some JSP engines, such as Tomcat, the check box Reuse temporary
files in the deployment system configuration (statification) must not be
selected. Otherwise, the files will not be generated properly. The problem
occurs when many objects are statified at the same time. Contents from
formerly generated files are sometimes transferred to currently generated
files.
If Livelink WCM Server is used together with the Sun Java System
Application Server, the WCM classes must be activated in the Java
Policies. For further information, refer to the Knowledge Center
(https://knowledge.opentext.com/knowledge/llisapi.dll?func=ll&objID=345
5579&objAction=view&type=0&Period=31&view=&Show=0).
The JARs contained in the latestpatch directory will be automatically
copied into the WEB-INF/lib directory of the web application and the lib
directory of the WCM server. Be sure to remove the JAR files from the
latestpatch directory after installing a service pack.
Page 28
Release Notes – Livelink WCM Server
3.
In a distributed WCM system, you have to ensure that the system time is
identical on all hardware servers used.
4.
When installing Livelink WCM Server, note that you cannot always work on
mounted directories. Directories that the WCM system potentially moves
and/or renames or deletes must never be mounted nor contain mounting
points. The reason for this is that Java is not capable of renaming or deleting
mounted directories.
Symbolic links cannot be used in connection with the WCM products.
5.
6.
Deployment system
The name of the deployment base directory must not contain any
space characters. The reason for this is that some HTTP servers (e.g.
Apache HTTP server) do not permit alias names containing space
characters.
Only characters which can be represented by the file system should be
used in file names. This applies in particular when a static deployment
system is used.
Under Unix, workflow images can only be generated if the X server is
running and the JVM 1.5 or higher can reach the X server for rendering the
images and fonts.
Under UNIX, thumbnails can only be generated if the X server is running
and the JVM 1.5 or higher is able to access the X server for rendering the
images and fonts or if the JVM is running in headless mode.
The configuration of a deployment system can only be changed when the
corresponding WCM server is running.
If no standard deployment system is set up for the Edit view of the
website, the following restrictions apply:
Images inserted in the integrated HTML editor via “Insert > Insert Image >
Local Image”, are not imported into the WCM system.
Existing objects are not recognized when an object containing embedded
objects is added, replaced, or checked in.
The references to embedded objects are not recognized correctly, when a
topic is selected for the embedded objects.
The <@ include> directive does not work with dynamic deployment
systems as it can only handle HTML code.
Oracle database
Page 29
Release Notes – Livelink WCM Server
7.
The Oracle database interprets the lengths restrictions of the VARCHAR2
fields as the maximum number of bytes to be stored. In the case of ISO8859-1 encoding, this corresponds to one character each. If the Oracle
database is set to UTF-8 during installation, special characters are
represented by several bytes in some cases. This may have the following
effect: some texts which would fit into the database field concerning the
character length do not fit due to the byte length. This error is not
remedied by the client implementation. The database will generate and
output an according error message.
In the case of the Oracle database, the user ID entered for a JDBC pool for
accessing the RDBMS must not contain hyphens or other special
characters.
All WCM servers in the WCM system must use the same database driver. In
connection with Bea WebLogic 8.1, it was observed that this software did
not use the database driver from the web application. The PoolManager
report in the Admin client contains information on the database driver
used.
If you use an Oracle Real Application Cluster, ask your Oracle
administrator if the initialization parameter
MAX_COMMIT_PROPAGATION_DELAY can be set to 0 or to using only one
cluster node. (For this purpose, the JDBC URL must be adapted. Oracle
load balancing should not be performed; the second node is only used as a
fallback.) For information on the MAX_COMMIT_PROPAGATION_DELAY
parameter, refer to the Oracle documentation.
LDAP
When using Microsoft Active Directory for user administration, user
passwords can only be changed if there is a secure connection (SSL) to the
LDAP server. Also, passwords may not contain certain special characters
such as the Euro symbol.
When using Microsoft Active Directory on Windows 2003 and creating
new users with the Admin client, the user is not active in the Active
Directory, because the attribute userAccountControl cannot be set.
The WCM Java API and the Portal Manager API contain methods that
internally cause LDAP requests in the context of user administration (login,
loading users, functional areas, or websites). The number of elements
returned in the response can be configured in the Admin client. It may,
however, not exceed the limit set in the LDAP server.
To speed up the display of principals when using the collective groups/roles
function and the Novell eDirectory, the following search must be
optimized in the LDAP server:
(|(objectclass=vipUser)(objectclass=vipGroup)(objectclass=vipRole))
8.
If you use Livelink ECM – Enterprise Server for the user administration, we
recommend that you edit the user names in Livelink ECM – Enterprise Server.
Page 30
Release Notes – Livelink WCM Server
9.
In order to use secure connections (SSL) for the communication between the
WCM servers, all WCM servers must use the same version of the Java Virtual
Machine.
10. Livelink WCM Server supports a ReceiveBufferSize of max. 64 KB.
11. Remote API of Livelink WCM Server
In addition to the specified port, additional ports will be opened when the
Remote API is used.
It was observed that the processes of the WCM server for which the remote
API is enabled could not be stopped.
The installation path of the WCM server or the web application may not
contain any spaces if RMI is used (e.g. using the Remote API or WCM API).
This is a known bug within the JDK. See
http://bugs.sun.com/bugdatabase/view_bug.do?bug_id=4496398 for
details.
12. Content Client, InSite Editing, and Content Client (Classic)
The default text size (medium) should be used in the browser and in the
settings of the operating system.
The clients must not be protected by Secure Access. Also, problems may
occur in active clients if the website is restarted.
In Mozilla Firefox, cookie handling must be set to the option “Enable
cookies for the originating web site only”.
Adapt the security settings of your browser in such a way that all contents
can be accessed. In order to display the graphical user interfaces,
JavaScript and CSS files must be accessed.
13. Content Client
If a large number of objects is to be displayed below a topic, problems may
occur when using the topic navigation. The same problem exists if the
template view is used and a single template has a large number of objects
assigned.
When using Japanese character sets, it might not be possible to use the
keyboard shortcuts. In this case, the respective functions and objects must
be selected with the mouse.
In connection with Mozilla Firefox, clicking the plus sign of a topic just
created in the Content Client caused Mozilla Firefox to quit in some cases.
To avoid this problem, update the view after creating a topic. The same
problem has been discovered after starting asynchronous actions like
importing objects from a ZIP file and executing other actions in parallel. To
avoid this, no actions should be started when the asynchronous action is
still running.
In some cases, it was observed that Mozilla Firefox froze for a certain time.
It was required to restart Mozilla Firefox in some of these cases.
Also, it was observed in some cases that the users were unable to close the
window and that the toolbar was not displayed correctly if the icons
contained text.
Page 31
Release Notes – Livelink WCM Server
Objects already existing in the WCM system are not recognized, when
topics are selected for importing embedded objects.
The "Dependent objects" dialog might not appear in the "Object list" view if
multiple objects are selected.
A metadata change of a selection of objects in the "Object list" view works
only if the change is allowed for each selected object.
The reference warning dialog is not correctly displayed if a workflow is used
to forward objects with references.
The topic names after a multi-import may not be as expected if directories
with empty spaces are used within the ZIP file.
Changes to metadata of formatted text attributes using the integrated
editor are only applied after the "Save" button is clicked. It is not possible
to correct these attributes multiple times without saving them.
In a few dialogs, the help topic is missing (e.g. in the "Browse template"
dialog).
If a topic with many subordinate objects is deleted it may take a while until
the confirmation dialog is displayed.
In Internet Explorer on Windows Vista, you have to add the URL of the
Content Client to the Trusted Sites section, otherwise the Download Applet
will not work correctly.
If you use Tomcat and want to use file names with special characters, you
must add the following parameter to the Connector element in the
server.xml configuration file, which is located in the Tomcat config
directory:
<Connector ... useBodyEncodingForURI="false" URIEncoding="UTF8" />
If this parameter is not set, you will not be able to upload files containing
special characters in their file names with the Download Applet.
14. Content Client (Classic)
If a large number of objects is to be displayed below a topic, problems may
occur when using the topic navigation. The same problem exists if the
template view is used and a single template has a large number of objects
assigned.
If the Content Client (Classic) runs in a navigator tab window (Mozilla
Firefox) and the user changes to another navigator tab, a new Content
Client (Classic) window will open after a certain period of time.
If you use the Content Client (Classic) with IIS and Resin or Tomcat, the
navigation tree will sometimes not be displayed in the left frame. In this
case, do the following:
1. Open the file:
<web-app>/htmlclient/hcl/LoginUtils/login.jsp.
2. Search for the line
de.gauss.vip.htmlclient.Configuration.ALLOW_INTERMEDIATE
Page 32
Release Notes – Livelink WCM Server
_FLUSH = true
(approx. line # 176)
3. Change the value from true to false.
15. InSite Editing
When using implicit styles in HTML code, layout problems may occur in
InSite Editing. Also, the HTML code of the page must be valid.
The browser window must be closed after logging out to remove temporary
login information.
Java Server Pages containing compile errors cannot be maintained with
InSite Editing. They must be maintained with the Content Client.
The Refresh/F5 function of the browser must not be used.
Frame objects cannot be edited with InSite Editing.
The InSite Editing toolbar is displayed on pages which are included via JSP
includes expressions.
Using the menu button to create new objects may fail because the list of
categories is empty. Use the context menu instead.
16. Integrated HTML editor
For information on the requirements for editing UTF-8 encoded content
with the integrated HTML editor, refer to the manufacturer’s website
(http://www.ephox.com).
Do not close the integrated HTML editor while working in the Code view.
The integrated HTML editor caches images during the complete lifetime of
the JVM. For this reason, the editor still displays the "old" image after an
image has been changed. Restart the browser to display the new image.
The integrated HTML editor does not support all HTML table features.
17. Content Miner
Under UNIX, the Readware servers cannot be stopped using the
keyboard shortcut “Ctrl-C” although this possibility is indicated when
starting the processes. In this case, please use the system-specific kill
command instead.
Content Miner cannot access files protected by Secure Access. Add a
deployment system using the base URL “http://127.0.0.1” that is not
protected by Secure Access. The documents of this deployment system can
then be indexed by Content Miner. Through the usage of a local
deployment system, no security loopholes arise. Please note that the HTTP
server must be configured accordingly.
Secure connection (SSL): The Content Miner batch tools do not work with
a WCM server using SSL connections. Please use the functions of the
Admin client instead.
Under Linux, the signature database of the Readware server cannot
exceed 2 GB. The number of the indexed documents that can be stored in
the 2 GB range cannot be determined.
Page 33
Release Notes – Livelink WCM Server
In order to use Readware with Solaris or Linux, OpenSSL must be
installed (libssl.so.0.9.6). For operation under Linux, the libraries
libstdc++.so.5 and libgcc_s.so.1 must be accessible.
Readware is unable to index UTF-8 encoded contents.
If a collection is configured with a root topic, and an object is moved out of
the indexed sub tree, the object is not removed from the index.
18. Livelink Enterprise Search servers
If Livelink ECM – Enterprise Server is used as the Search server, only the
Livelink Search API search can be used for internal collections.
A Livelink Enterprise Search server can manage several collections that
share a slice. Several Search servers or WCM systems must, however, not
share a slice.
19. When accessing Enterprise Server objects that have categories assigned via
the WCM system, performance or memory issues may arise if:
- the Enterprise Server objects are assigned many categories,
- the categories contain many attributes, or
- the attributes contain many values.
Also, the WCM system does not check the permissions for an Enterprise Server
category. A user is able to access an Enterprise Server category via the WCM
system even if the user does not have the “See” permission.
20. Modules for integration with Livelink ECM – Enterprise Server: With
Livelink ECM – Enterprise Server 9.5, new functions for Enterprise Server
modules were introduced. For this reason, upgrading the modules for
integration of Livelink WCM Server with Livelink ECM – Enterprise Server (WCM
Kernel Integration and WCM User Administration modules) may not work. If
you experience problems during the upgrade, deinstall the old modules first,
and then install the new ones.
21. Secure Access & InSite Editing
If an AVI file protected by Secure Access is opened with the Media Player
plug-in, a login is required each time the file is called.
22. Please note that only static content that is accessed via HTTP can be protected
with Secure Access. Active content accessing other objects, such as Content
Assembly objects, may circumvent Secure Access.
23. When using Java Web Start in connection with the Content Workflow Modeler
or the distributed Admin client, the released version of Java Web Start must be
installed on the local computer. Also, the print option in the workflow modeler
and the Admin client helps cannot be used if they are called via Java Web
Start.
24. When using Java Web Start or an Applet in connection with the Content
Workflow Modeler or the distributed Admin client, there will be a warning that
the certificate has expired. This warning will be displayed because the
certificate of the JavaHelp JAR file has timed out. Sun Microsystems does not
provide a version with a valid certificate at the moment.
Page 34
Release Notes – Livelink WCM Server
25. Export/import
If the master Content server is running in a JSP engine (e.g. WebSphere),
problems may occur during the export/import and creation of
websites. To avoid these problems, start the master Content server
directly (not in the JSP engine). When the operation is complete, you can
start the master Content server in the JSP engine again.
For performing an export/import under Unix/Linux, an X server is required.
The subtree export does not export objects with the state "delayed release"
even if the objects have already been released.
The performance for the ACL help table calculation within a website import
or a proxy assignment can be increased now by using a PL/SQL procedure
(Oracle databases only). Specify the command line option "-Dexport.useplsql=true" within the start script of the content servers to enable this
feature.
26. When importing large ZIP files (> 10 MB), make sure that the client PC has
enough memory. Check whether you can use the function “Import linked
objects” or a server-side import instead. For information on the server-side
import, please contact Technical Support.
27. User IDs
In the WCM system, there must not be a user with the user ID
"Anonymous".
User IDs may only contain the characters described in the online help of
the Admin client, even if the LDAP server or Livelink Enterprise server
permits other characters in user IDs.
28. When using SSL for a WCM server, the Remote API is also set to SSL
29. Servlet-based deployment system
A servlet-based deployment system (option “Use servlet to render JSP
templates” in the Admin client) is only released for Resin 3.0.23, Tomcat
5.5.20 and IBM Websphere AS 6.1.
A servlet-based deployment system will generate templates also in the
Production view, even if the deployment system is configured for
statification.
Static pages (e.g. HTML pages) that use a JSP template in the template
cascade should not contain any dynamic JSP code.
Extensive use of Content Assembly features might not work as expected
for servlet-based deployment systems. Static pages (e.g. HTML pages)
should not contain dynamic content. Content included by an “Object
content” attribute, for example, is only allowed in HTML pages if the
included WCM object is not based on a JSP template.
Page 35
Release Notes – Livelink WCM Server
WCM tags used within scriptlet code of a JSP template must use the option
source=jsp to be correctly replaced in the generated JSP page. Example:
<% String oid = "{VIPOID source=jsp}"; %>
30. WCM Lightweight API
The WCM Lightweight API can only be used with Sun J2SE 5 or higher.
The WCM Lightweight API is not released for SSL communication.
If the configuration of the WCM system is changed, e.g. because a new
website is created, it is necessary to restart the server agent of the WCM
Lightweight API.
