JavaScript improvements with Rational Publishing Engine 2.1.1

JavaScript is one of the key components while building a Rational Publishing Engine (RPE) template. The plain JavaScript dialog editor has been improved with:

  • Content Assist: Ctrl + space lists available variables, helps with syntax of various JavaScript functions, parameters to be passed to a function. Tip: If the variable is a data attribute from a query, store it in a JavaScript variable to take advantage of content assist.
  • Syntax coloring: For any programming language, syntax coloring is a must.
  • Line marking: The line containing the cursor has a line marking.

RPE does not have an inbuilt solution for comparing documents. With the help of Microsoft Macro VB script, one could compare two documents to get representation of a third document that contains the differences between the two compared documents, and it is marked by using Track ChangesContinue reading “Document Comparison between configurations or versions or views”
