CodeCentral

Web client

The browser interface to CodeCentral(CC) is now live. This web client is focused on performance, and replacing the functionality found in the prior CGI version of CodeCentral. Please report all issues and feature requests to QualityCentral .

Navigation

Every page should have the same common look and feel, that is consistent among all the EDN and Embarcadero sites.   CodeCentral also provides common functionality available on all of its pages.    The left side of the page lists all of the products that can be found in CodeCentral.  By clicking on one of these products it will take you to the product page, and the left hand side will be expanded to list the categories for the selected product. 

Below the common menu displayed for all of EDN, you will find tabs that will take you to the various other EDN systems, if a product is selected in CodeCentral it will take you that product area in the selected system.  For example if you have selected the Delphi product area in CodeCentral and you press on the "Event" tab, it will take you to the Delphi events listed in EventCentral .

Below the tabs, you will find additional links such as to Search  the repository, and Add Snippets  to the repository.

To start using the CodeCentral web client, click on http://cc.embarcadero.com .   This will display the product matrix, and links to the CodeCentral authors by last name.    These can be used to navigate quickly to common areas by browsing. 

Thanks for your participation, and thank you for helping make CodeCentral as beneficial to the Embarcadero community as possible.

Smart URLs

If you are using any URLs that referenced the CCWeb.exe CGI application they should automatically redirect you to the correct area in the new application.     In additional a new url structure has been have been introduced to allow easier navigation, if you type in URLs directly into your browser.
