Spring Surf and OpenCMIS Integration Part 2

Blog Post created by dcaruana Employee on Jun 14, 2010
Back in March I wrote about a prototype integration between Spring Surf and OpenCMIS.



Spring Surf provides a scriptable approach to building web applications. OpenCMIS provides a Java client library for accessing any CMIS compliant content repository. By combining the two, we create a development platform for building CMIS enabled web applications.



Since that time, several enhancements have been made to the integration and also to the sample CMIS Browser web application.



In the video below, new CMIS Browser features are demonstrated such as property, relationship and rendition views, query invocation and support for connecting to multiple repositories at once. These features are shown against both Alfresco and IBM repositories at the same time.

This is followed by a brief walkthrough of the CMIS Browser code changes required to support the above features.

The Spring Surf and OpenCMIS integration is “a work in progress” with code still under development. Feedback is welcome.
