By | Application integration & Middleware | One Comment

I recently realized there are very few information about multiple ADTS instances installation and management. And we have a customer which has two ADTS running for one docbase. I therefore decided to write a couple of blog posts on “Multiple ADTS”, since it is likely to be helpful for someone in the same situation.   Rendition processing & ADTS instance This first blog post will tell you how to find out which rendition has been…
