Deployment Options for AutoVue 20.0 Users
By Celine Beck-Oracle on Apr 21, 2010
AutoVue release 20.0 boasts a brand new architecture. As part of this product rearchitecture, AutoVue can now be deployed either as a desktop deployment to serve the needs of individual users in their personal productivity; or in a Client / Server deployment for those that require connections to enterprise applications / back-end systems.
The most common question that we hear from our customers about this new architecture is the following: "Is AutoVue Desktop Version still part of release 20.0 and if so, what is the difference between AutoVue Desktop Version and the Desktop deployment of AutoVue release 20.0?"
A detailed answer to these questions is provided in a very complete article entitled Understanding Deployment Options for AutoVue 19.3 Desktop Version users upgrading to AutoVue 20.0 (note 1058254.1) which was posted on My Oracle Support.
Is AutoVue Desktop Version still part of AutoVue 20.0?
Yes, AutoVue Desktop Version 20.0 is still available to customers and partners, as a maintenance release of AutoVue 19.3. As such, it will not contain any of the new capabilities featured in AutoVue release 20.0. All format enhancements and new format support have been added to release 20.0 Desktop Version though.
What is the different between AutoVue Desktop Version 20.0 and the Desktop Deployment of AutoVue release 20.0?
AutoVue 20.0 Desktop deployment works like the AutoVue Desktop version. It is installed as a standalone product on each user's machine and runs a local instance of AutoVue. The AutoVue 20.0 Desktop deployment includes all new features, formats and performance enhancements included in release 20.0 (walkthrough capability, improved compare, ...)
What deployment options are available to AutoVue 19.3 Desktop Version customers?
AutoVue Desktop Version users can evolve at their own pace to the new AutoVue platform. With release 20.0, customers can opt to:
- Option 1: Stay on AutoVue Desktop Version 20.0
- Option 2: Migrate to AutoVue and select the desktop deployment method
- Option 3: Migrate to AutoVue and select the Client/Server deployment method
What is the Client / Server deployment of AutoVue 20.0?
The Client/Server deployment has AutoVue installed on a server, to which local client machines connect to access and view documents.
AutoVue 20.0 Client Server Deployment allows users to leverage the new online/offline capabilities in release 20.0 and easily switch between online and offline modes of operation.
With the Client/Server deployment, customers also get a complete, open and standards-based set of integration tools that allows them to tie AutoVue to any enterprise applications to provide users with a consistent view of data and business objects and expand workflow automation to document-based processes.
