Hi,

I have tried to configure Alfresco 3.3g to get Google Docs working in Share.

I followed the configuration instructions detailed in http://wiki.alfresco.com/w/images/7/78/Getting_Started_with_Using_Google_Docs_with_Alfresco.pdf.

My share-config-custom.xml file (in thetomcat\shared\classes\alfresco\web-extension folder)  is set as follows:

<alfresco-config>

   <!– Global config section –>
   <config replace="true">
      <flags>
         <!–
            Developer debugging setting to turn on DEBUG mode for client scripts in the browser
         –>
         <client-debug>false</client-debug>

         <!–
            LOGGING can always be toggled at runtime when in DEBUG mode (Ctrl, Ctrl, Shift, Shift).
            This flag automatically activates logging on page load.
         –>
         <client-debug-autologging>false</client-debug-autologging>
      </flags>
   </config>

   <!– Document Library config section –>
   <config evaluator="string-compare" condition="DocumentLibrary" replace="true">

      <!–
         Whether the folder Tree component should enumerate child folders or not.
         This is a relatively expensive operation, so should be set to "false" for Repositories with broad folder structures.
      –>
      <tree>
         <evaluate-child-folders>false</evaluate-child-folders>
      </tree>

      <!–
         Used by the "Manage Aspects" action

         For custom aspects, remember to also add the relevant i18n string(s)
            cm_myaspect=My Aspect
      –>
      <aspects>
         <!– Aspects that a user can see –>
         <visible>
            <aspect name="cm:generalclassifiable" />
            <aspect name="cm:complianceable" />
            <aspect name="cm:dublincore" />
            <aspect name="cm:effectivity" />
            <aspect name="cm:summarizable" />
            <aspect name="cm:versionable" />
            <aspect name="cm:templatable" />
            <aspect name="cm:emailed" />
            <aspect name="emailserver:aliasable" />
            <aspect name="cm:taggable" />
            <aspect name="app:inlineeditable" />
            <aspect name="gd:googleEditable" />
         </visible>

         <!– Aspects that a user can add. Same as "visible" if left empty –>
         <addable>
         </addable>

         <!– Aspects that a user can remove. Same as "visible" if left empty –>
         <removeable>
         </removeable>
      </aspects>

      <!–
         Used by the "Change Type" action

         Define valid subtypes using the following example:
            <type name="cm:content">
               <subtype name="cm:mysubtype" />
            </type>

         Remember to also add the relevant i18n string(s):
            cm_mysubtype=My SubType
      –>
      <types>
         <type name="cm:content">
         </type>

         <type name="cm:folder">
         </type>
      </types>

      <!–
         If set, will present a WebDAV link for the current item on the Document and Folder details pages.
         Also used to generate the "View in Alfresco Explorer" action for folders.
      –>
      <repository-url>http://localhost:8080/alfresco</repository-url>

      <!–
         Google Docs™ integration
      –>
      <google-docs>
         <!–
            Enable/disable the Google Docs UI integration (Extra types on Create Content menu, Google Docs actions).
            If enabled, remember to also make sure the gd:googleEditable aspect is made visible in the <aspects> section above.
         –>
         <enabled>true</enabled>
        
         <!–
            The mimetypes of documents Google Docs allows you to create via the Share interface.
            The I18N label is created from the "type" attribute, e.g. google-docs.doc=Google Docs&trade; Document
         –>
         <creatable-types>
            <creatable type="doc">application/msword</creatable>
            <creatable type="xls">application/vnd.ms-excel</creatable>
            <creatable type="ppt">application/vnd.ms-powerpoint</creatable>
         </creatable-types>
      </google-docs>
   </config>

   <!– Repository Library config section –>
   <config evaluator="string-compare" condition="RepositoryLibrary" replace="true">
      <!–
         Whether the link to the Repository Library appears in the header component or not.
      –>
      <visible>true</visible>

      <!–
         Root nodeRef for top-level folder.
      –>
      <root-node>alfresco://company/home</root-node>

      <!–

        NTLM authentication config for Share
        NOTE: you will also need to enable the NTLM authentication filter in Share web.xml
              change localhost:8080 below to appropriate alfresco server location if required

</alfresco-config>

My googledocs.properties file (in the tomcat\webapps\alfresco\WEB-INF\classes\alfresco\subsystems\googledocs\default folder) is set as follows:

# Enables google editable functionality
googledocs.googleeditable.enabled=true

# Google docs application name
googledocs.application.name=Alfresco ECM system

# Google docs URL
googledocs.url=http://docs.google.com/feeds/default/private/full

# System google docs authentication credentials
googledocs.username=myusername
googledocs.password=mypassword

# Google docs spreadsheet service name
googledocs.spreadsheet.service.name=wise

When I click on the 'Check out Google Docs' link in Share, the message 'doc_name is being checkout to Google Docs' displays. Shortly after this, the message 'You cannot checkout doc_name to Google Docs' appears.

Does Google Docs work in 3.3g ?

Thanks.
