This is the first Community Technology Preview of the Digital Experience Accelerator to showcase the work that has been done so far on version 2.0. DXA 2.0 is the name for the merge of DD4T and DXA, but when you look at the DXA 2.0 CTP 1 release, you might think, how is this a merge? Please read my posts about the merge and architecture of the merged product for a bit more detail on this. We are taking a phased approach to the merge, and the CTP releases are just phases in this merge, with the intention of getting early feedback and collaboration with the community.
The end result of the merge will be the DXA 2.0 release which we are hoping to deliver around the beginning of Q4 2017. Before we get there, we have a lot of work ahead and a lot of decisions we will all need to make. Since DXA remains open source, we need your help.
The goal of this CTP 1 release is to gather feedback on the following topics:
To give this feedback there are a few channels we can use, for starters to report issues you can use the GitHub repositories like usual, for questions about the CTP, you can ask them on https://tridion.stackexchange.com and for discussions around the merge, we can use the "meta" Tridion StackExchange site: https://tridion.meta.stackexchange.com/.
SDL Digital Experience Accelerator 2.0 CTP is a Community Technology Preview for the 2.0 release. This preview introduces an architectural change. Note, do not use this for production purposes!
SDL Digital Experience Accelerator 2.0 CTP introduces a DXA microservice called DXA Model Service, which runs on the Content Delivery server, more precisely, on a machine that also contains the SDL Web Content Service or the SDL Web Session-enabled Content Service.
This architectural change is meant to improve the overall performance of the product. If, for whatever reason, you do not want to switch to this new architecture, but would instead prefer to continue using the existing (now deprecated) architecture without the Model Service, follow the upgrade instructions. If you want to install the old setup fresh in a new server environment, follow the legacy instructions.
To make it clear this is a pre-release, we did not update the regular downloads of DXA 1.7, the DXA 2.0 CTP 1 release is only available through GitHub:
The product documentation will be available soon online in the SDL Documentation Center: https://docs.sdl.com/SDLDXA2-CTP
The documentation is like this release itself, a "work in progress" and we will update it frequently when we have more/new information or updates.
The DXA 2.0 CTP 1 release is not an Alpha or Beta release, but it is also not a finished production ready release either. We are aware that the performance of the Java web application is not up to par, since it currently is missing caching.
