SpectrumSCM 4.0 Evaluation Version

  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 reporting mechanisms.

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 model.

  • 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.

SpectrumSCM Proxy

  SpectrumSCM now provides enhanced performance for distributed development teams in bandwidth constrained network environments through the SpectrumSCM Proxy. The proxy acts as a bridge between the SpectrumSCM client and server, and builds a cache for frequently checked out revisions of the e-Assets that are under source control. Files checked out by a client are used to serve similar requests from other clients, thus improving overall response time for check-outs and extracts. The proxy not only provides a better user experience for remote teams but also reduces the network traffic across the WAN and the load on the remote SpectrumSCM server. Check out the Administrative Functions chapter under the User Guide section on our website or send a mail to support@spectrumscm.com for further details.
