The SpectrumSCM 4.0 version continues the progression of the SpectrumSCM product into the enterprise
change management space. The SpectrumSCM 4.0 product includes all the features of the 3.x product line
but is now based upon a relational database backend. The relational database enhances the scalability
of the product to support larger environments whilst providing industry standard SQL querying and
Specific SpectrumSCM Version 4.0 enhancements
Database enhancement: By leveraging the Hibernate Object-Relational
mapping project, SpectrumSCM can be configured to use industry standard relational databases. By default,
SpectrumSCM 4.0 is deployed with Apache DerbyDb but at this time
it can also be configured to use a MySQL data store. Either of these databases
gives your change management items full transactional integrity while also giving the ease of access of SQL technologies.
Reports Builder: Based on the new relational database you can now write your own custom reports, both
in terms of SQL queries and custom output formatting. These report controls are stored within SpectrumSCM so that they
can be shared with other platform users. Access can also be controlled using the SpectrumSCM role-based permissions
Directory level, recursive check-out: A feature requested by a number of existing customers, to be able to
check-out for edit a complete directory structure. Because this could potentially involve a large number of files,
appropriate safe-guards had to be built in.
Copy files within the repository: To support template type functionality a "copy file(s)" function was added.
As with all such SpectrumSCM features, full history/trackability is maintained i.e. where did this new file
come from, who created it, why, and has it followed my SDLC/business process.
