DESCRIPTION The OASIS CMIS (Content Management Interoperability Services) standard is the lingua franca of Enterprise Content Management (ECM) systems like SharePoint, Alfresco, IBM FileNet, OpenText, Nuxeo, and Documentum.
This specification provides a standardized, vendor- and language-neutral way to access any compliant content repository-much like SQL does for databases. CMIS and Apache Chemistry in Action is a comprehensive guide to the CMIS standard and related ECM concepts.
It provides hands-on examples for building applications on CMIS repositories from both the client and the server sides, and it shows how to create new content-centric applications that install and run in any CMIS-compliant repository.
In fact, readers will have running code talking to a real CMIS server by the end of chapter 1.
Apache Chemistry is a complete reference implementation of the CMIS standard, offering robust APIs for developers writing tools, applications, and servers.
