Hi all.
I've an external application that uses Alfresco as "repository".
An application database contains for each document the Alfresco node IDs and other application-specific information.
Now is time to load into Alfresco the application-specific information.
Before to start the implementation I need your opinion. Which is the best approach/programming model to read from the application database the information of each document and upload them as Alfresco metadata?
(write a java application that reads from db and adds custom metadata through java foundation API? Extend Alfresco and create a custom action that does the "metadata loading" job? Or….?)
I will appreciate your opinion
Thanks!
