Ascent® 7.0 Release Script for Oracle Content Services 10g Release Notes
The source code for both the Ascent 7.0 Release Script for Oracle Content Services 10g and the
connector is provided on the Ascent 7.0 Release Script for Oracle Content Services 10g installation
CD. This section provides instructions for modification of the source code and deployment of the
The Release Script
The project file that builds the main assembly OCSRel10_v7.dll for the main assembly is
\Oracle\CS10\Source\ReleaseScript\OCSRel10_v7.vbp. After modifying and building in Visual
Basic, copy the main assembly OCSRel10_v7.dll to the OCSRel10_v7 installation folder (for
example, C:\Program Files\Ascent\Cap\OCSRel10_v7).
In order to successfully modify and compile the release script, development must occur on a
workstation with the appropriate versions of Ascent Capture, CAPTools, and the Oracle Content
Services release script previously installed.
Refer to the documentation that came with your Oracle Content Services product and Visual
Studio documentation for assistance.
The connector for this release script has two parts: a .Net assembly which uses the Oracle Web
services API to communicate with the Oracle Content Services server, and a COM wrapper
assembly which is used to expose functionality to COM applications such as the release script.
The .NET assembly project file that builds Kofax.OCSRel10_v7.dll is
The COM wrapper assembly project file that builds Kofax.OCSRel10_v7COM.dll is
The COM assembly must be registered with the Microsoft utility regasm.exe using the /codebase
option in order for COM applications to use it. The main assembly must be in the same folder as
the COM assembly.
If you build the connector in Visual Studio on a computer where the release script is installed,
Visual Studio will automatically register the COM assembly you build and unregister the one that
was installed by the release script installation program. To deploy the new assemblies on non-
development computers where the release script is installed you must follow the instructions
X To deploy new connector assemblies
Copy both connector assemblies (Kofax.OCSRel10_v7.dll and
Kofax.OCSRel10_v7COM.dll) to the <release script installation folder path>\NetAsm
Register the COM assembly with regasm.exe using the /codebase option. Run regasm.exe
when you deploy the new version of the assemblies to computers where no development
has been done, if you have changed the version of the COM assembly, or if you have
modified any part of the COM interface.
