DXA 2.0 and DD4T

For the past year, the DD4T community has worked with SDL to merge our own DD4T framework with SDL’s Digital Experience Accelerator (DXA). Our idea from the start has been to create a system that combines the flexibility of DD4T with the ease of use of DXA. With the introduction of DXA 2.0, SDL has made an important step towards achieving this goal.

From today on, the efforts of the DD4T community are aimed at completing the merge. We will continue to support the DD4T framework, but we will no longer release any new features.

Read on to find out how this release affects you as a DD4T user.


DD4T (Dynamic Delivery for Tridion) enables the use of MVC frameworks in Java and .NET with Tridion. At its core, DD4T publishes Pages and Components as data into your Content Data Store rather than as code to your filesystem. You can then leverage tools which you know; such as ASP.NET MVC, Spring - or anything that can use REST to deliver your content in any view you like.
