In Detail Content Management Servers (CMS) have been around for a very long time, both proprietary and open source ones, but there has not been a standard way of talking to them until recently. The Content Management Interoperability Services (CMIS)More In Detail Content Management Servers (CMS) have been around for a very long time, both proprietary and open source ones, but there has not been a standard way of talking to them until recently.
The Content Management Interoperability Services (CMIS) standard provides both an application programming interface and a search language (based on SQL-92). Alfresco CMIS implementation is the basis for many existing CMIS applications, and you can use CMIS too to integrate your application with Alfresco.Alfresco CMIS is a practical, hands-on guide that provides you with a number of clear step-by-step exercises that will help you take advantage of the real power of CMIS, and give you a good foundation in using it via HTTP/XML, Java, or scripting.It starts off with an introduction to the CMIS standard, in order to update you on the service API, object model, and query language.The first part of the book explains how to use the service API with HTTP and XML/JSON- this is done in order to show that any library, system, or tool that can make HTTP calls and parse XML or JSON, is able to talk to a content management server that supports CMIS.
It also has plenty of examples to help illustrate the concepts that you will learn.Who this book is for If you are a developer who wants to learn how to build applications that talk to content management servers in a standard way using CMIS, this book is ideal for you.
It will be helpful if you have a bit of programming experience, although it is not necessary.
