Did you ever have the need to just whip up a simple tool to programmatically update a set of documents? Or maybe just do some in-depth queries of the repository to answer an executive’s questions about content within your repository? Do you ever struggle with “where to start” when trying to fulfill what seems like a simple ask?
This session will provide you with techniques and resources for building your own toolkit for querying and modifying an Alfresco repository. By using CMIS with Apache Chemistry, you can build your own standalone applications for querying data in Alfresco, performing updates, and performing tasks such as exporting metadata to files for reporting. This makes this code reusable, and it also means that you can write this code without having to make any changes to the Alfresco repository.
Apache Chemistry support several languages, including Java, Groovy, Python, Objective-C, and PHP. So, you can pick the language or languages that you are most comfortable with and spend your time solving problems and answering questions, not struggling with scaffolding.
