Integrate Alfresco with external Java application

Question asked by ugo.ribecai on Oct 1, 2010
hi all,
i'm newbie of alfresco.
I've developed a Java Application (J2EE) that needed to "know" if a document exists on Alfresco repository and retrieve
his informations and properties. (like author, type etc…)

reading the documentation I think to do this integration in one of this methods:

1. create a Workflow that after an "add Content" put into an generic file the document name with his properties
2. create a content Rule to do the "same work" of the previous point 1.
3. invoke from my java application an Alfresco Web Services by API

What is the difference from workflow and "content rule" ?

What method is the best to do this simple integration?
