Does anyone here have any best practices to share about how to integrate your content into the deployment and release cycle of software?
We are using a WebCenter Portal solution with content stored in the Content Server that is tightly related to the portal. So, if we deploy a new version of the portal to our test environment we wan t to export/import our content too, at the same time. Same for acceptance and production.
Is it still a manual task using the Archiver, or are you for example using scripts and RIDC?

There are several ways to synchronize content from one system to another. Just here in the Czech republic we have used/proposed to be used:
- the Archiver
- DataGuard/file system clustering
There is probably not just one right solution. In your case, where I believe you need to export increments in batches, whose size will not be that big, I assume the Archiver, or some kind of BatchLoader, looks the right tool. It does not have to be fully manual - see e.g. Building IdcCommand command file to archive from UCM
