Locating add-ons for Document Management in GW 5.5

Locating add-ons for Document Management in GW 5.5

Is anyone aware of third party or Novell add-ons solutions for Document Management in GW 5.5?

Thanks for any suggestions.

RE: Locating add-ons for Document Management in GW 5.5

What kind of add-ons? We've fooled around with the Document Mgt in GW 5.5 and it's scary. All your documents are stored as blob fields within the database, not as separate files. If GroupWise is not running, you have absolutely no access to your documents and if the database becomes corrupt you are really in trouble. Better document management systems store the documents as files, while the database only keeps tracking, indexing and other information. The document may be extremely hard to find without the doc. mgt system, but at least it is out there.
