Next week I am giving a session at an internal IBM enablement event about the Content Template Catalog v4 (CTC), which is a great resource for quickly producing websites with IBM WCM. The CTC is pretty poorly understood and so I have spent some time making a map of all of the contents of the 3 CTC design libraries that are shipped with the product. These contain the design artifacts necessary to build your own website and understanding what’s there is important when it comes to planning that new site. The three libraries concerned are:
- CTC Design – contains the presentation templates, authoring templates and common components
- CTC Process – contains the sample workflow and categories
- CTC Content – contains the micro-sites that support the page templates
There is a 4th library, “CTC Demo” but since it simply instantiates the templates found in CTC Content I did not bother mapping it for now.
These maps are mind-maps that show the structure and content of the three libraries listed above. There may be occasional typos. There is no significance to the colours of the lines but in the CTC Content map, items marked in Italics are content items.
The image below links to the PDF, which contains very large images of the map.
