The GCF™, or "Government Class Framework", offers document history tracking, versioning, ownership, e-signature, security and DPP (Document Processing Path).
The GCF is the backbone of the management of SOClass e-documents. It allows users to access all versions of a particular document and to retrace the evolution of an e-document.
For GCF e-documents, two databases are created: one to store all e-documents in their latest version, and one to store the previous versions of each e-document. The version-database stores serialized objects containing all necessary information about a version of an e-document. A GCF e-document is identified by a primary key composed of an Instance Identification to identify uniquely a document’s instance independently of its data elements.
