Hello,

I am working with an application using a different CMS and i`m trying to evaluate the possibility of migrating to Alfresco. My application uses the content management back-end to store a data structure containing various metadata values , some of which are arranged in a parent-child relationship. The child nodes have various files attached. However i cannot seem to navigate my way through the documentation on the wiki site and i'm on a time limit, so any help with answering the following questions would be greatly appreciated:

1. How do you create a metadata structure in Alfresco where i can store and update data?
2. How is Alfresco accessed from an external application (my application is currently Java-based)?
3. How can a stored file and/or metadata value be retrieved by an accessing application?
4. Can the Alfresco file repository be accessed directly?
