Libraries - Use for versioning and project management
With pdfaPilot libraries versions and projects can easily be managed. Supposedly, a printing company has compiled records with profiles, checks and corrections for a particular workflow or customer. Now it is possible to spread them and manage different versions across multiple workstations via libraries.
- For a customer or a workflow a library was created.
- If the requirements change or if new pdfaPilot features are integrated, the existing library can simply be duplicated, a new version number (possibly also with the current date) can be given and the additional checks, profiles and corrections can be added.
- The new, additional library could then be called "customer-v1.1-2016-06-26" or "Printer v1.1-2016-06-26".
- Further updates will be processed the same.
In this way, it is non-destructive and any changes in the procedure are tracked.
