You’ve set up your content delivery environment and have your topologies all ready to go. Your publication has a Business Process Type, so you go to publish your first bit of content…
Huh? Where’s the target? You try a CME refresh, service restarts, even a server reboot with no luck.
This is a little gotcha that Dom Cronin pointed out at TDS 2016 and which I missed. As well as creating a business process type (BPT), that BPT also needs to be specified in a publication’s properties before you can publish items to it from that publication.
So, add your BPT to your publication’s properties
and you will have your target available when publishing items from your publication. All is now good with the world.
At the Tridion Developer Summit in September Siawash Shibana and Albert Romkes gave a presentation of a DD4T .NET application running under vNext (The codename for the next .NET framework) on Linux.
Siawash and Albert made the application available publicy and although it currently uses mock SDL Web 8 provider objects plugging this into a real life content delivery service should be really simple when SDL Web 8 is released this month.
The Alchemy DXA Page Preview plugin allows you to preview a DXA page inside the CME without publishing the page to the content delivery server.
Anyone building a plugin for Alchemy4Tridion is familiar with the repeated steps of: Building the project, alt-tabbing to the CME Alchemy page, uninstalling the plugin, alt tabbing to your build directory, moving your hand to the mouse, dragging the *.a4t to the plugin window, yaawwwwnnn, ctrl-tabbing to the CME Content Explorer, F5ing the content. After the billionth time of doing this you yearn for something quicker!

SDL’s Tridion documentation does not go very deep into the set up of Content Delivery in a Linux environment and I have found little content out in the community around this. I thought that it would be valuable to create a few videos that step through the installation of a Redhat Linux server with Oracle 12c for Content Delivery for those with little Linux and Oracle experience. This isn’t intended as a set up guide for a production server (That’s what sysadmins and DBAs live for) but it will give you your own instance of a working Linux/Oracle CD environment that you can play around with.
I created a relatively short (25 minute) video that should help you get DD4T for Java set up and running in Tomcat on a Windows server. It’s a pretty straight forward process but for developers without much Java experience there are some sticking points than can make the set up a little more challenging.
