AEM + XML and version control

Kristen James Eberlein

I would be very interested in hearing from folks with existing AEM + XML implementations.

What practices are you using to best implement version control, for example:

  • When do authors create new versions of topics and maps? Does your implementation have conventions for what the "comments for new versions" include?
  • When are baselines created and edited? How many baselines exist? What are the conventions for naming baselines?
  • Have you implemented any custom workflows, for example, to force the creation of new topic when an author attempts to edit a topic in the "Done" document state?
  • Have you automated document state changes?

Thanks in advance for taking time to communicate about this.
