Quality gate

DQL Tester FX

With new technologies, new tools will be created!

This slogan made me start this project where we want to create a new version of the good old 'DQL Tester' tool.

'DQL Tester' supports the administration tasks on a Documentum environment. With this project a new version of 'DQL Tester' is under construction and made available for everyone who wants to join our development team.

The 'FX' postfix in the title makes it clear we use the new JavaFX technology to create standalone applications.

Feature list

  • Execute DQL queries with the result in a table view
  • Browse the repository
  • Dump and modify properties
  • Administration tasks
    • Running jobs
    • User/Group management
    • Updates in security
  • Execute API and DQL scripts

Requirements for this application

  • A Java Runtime Environment (JRE) (e.g. OpenJDK Runtime Environment 18.9 (build 11.0.1+13))
  • JavaFX libraries (as they are not included in OpenJDK!). Downloadable fom JavaFX SDK
  • A runnable OpenText Documentum environment that can be pinged by hostname or IP-address from the machine where this application will be executed
  • DFC and BPM/PE libraries. These can be downloaded from OpenText My Support

How to run the application:

  1. Download the latest release to the local drive from
  2. In the download directory create a sub directory named: lib
  3. Copy the following DFC jar files in this lib directory
    • aspectjrt.jar
    • certj.jar
    • commons-lang-2.4.jar
    • cryptoj.jar
    • dfc.jar
    • log4j.jar
    • bpm_infra.jar (BPM / Process Engine)
  4. Copy the following jar files in this lib directory from the download locations
  5. In the download directory create a sub directory named: config
  6. Create a new file called in the config directory with this content[0]=<host; hostname or ip-address>
    dfc.docbroker.port[0]=<port; default 1489>
    dfc.globalregistry.password=<dm_bof_registry (encrypted) password>
    dfc.date_format=dd/mm/yyyy hh:mi:ss
  7. Create a new file called with this content in the config directory
    log4j.rootCategory=INFO, A1, F1
    #------------------- CONSOLE --------------------------
    log4j.appender.A1.layout.ConversionPattern=%d{ABSOLUTE} %5p [%t] %c - %m%n
    #------------------- FILE --------------------------
    log4j.appender.F1.layout.ConversionPattern=%d{ABSOLUTE} %5p [%t] %c - %m%n
  8. Start a CMD prompt and give these commands (point to your own path as these are samples)
  • cd "c:\DQL Tester FX"

It's the location of the downloaded DQLTesterFX-xxx.jar and just created lib and config directory

  • set PATH_TO_FX="c:\javafx-sdk-11.0.1\lib"

Sets the path to the extracted JavaFX runtime libraries

  • "c:\jdk-11.0.1\bin\java.exe" --module-path %PATH_TO_FX% --add-modules=javafx.controls,javafx.fxml -cp DQLTesterFX-xxx.jar;lib\*;config nl.bos.Main

For a direct login, pass 3 parameters:

  • "c:\jdk-11.0.1\bin\java.exe" --module-path %PATH_TO_FX% --add-modules=javafx.controls,javafx.fxml -cp DQLTesterFX-xxx.jar;lib\*;config nl.bos.Main <REPOSITORY_NAME> <USERNAME> <PASSWORD>
You can’t perform that action at this time.
