Synopses & Reviews
CMIS and Apache Chemistry in Action is a comprehensive guide to the CMIS standard and related ECM concepts, written by the authors of the standard. In it, you'll tackle hands-on examples for building applications on CMIS repositories from both the client and the server sides. You'll learn how to create new content-centric applications that install and run in any CMIS-compliant repository.
About The Technology
Content Management Interoperability Services (CMIS) is an OASIS standard for accessing content management systems. It specifies a vendor-and language-neutral way to interact with any compliant content repository. Apache Chemistry provides complete reference implementations of the CMIS standard with robust APIs for developers writing tools, applications, and servers.
About This Book
CMIS and Apache Chemistry in Action is a comprehensive guide to the CMIS standard and related ECM concepts. In it, you'll find clear teaching and instantly useful examples for building content-centric client and server-side applications that run against any CMIS-compliant repository. In fact, using the CMIS Workbench and the InMemory Repository from Apache Chemistry, you'll have running code talking to a real CMIS server by the end of chapter 1.
This book requires some familiarity with content management systems and a standard programming language like Java or C#. No exposure to CMIS or Apache Chemistry is assumed.
Purchase of the print book includes a free eBook in PDF, Kindle, and ePub formats from Manning Publications.

The OASIS CMIS (Content Management Interoperability Services) standard is the lingua franca of Enterprise Content Management (ECM) systems like SharePoint, Alfresco, IBM FileNet, OpenText, Nuxeo, and Documentum. This specification provides a standardized, vendor- and language-neutral way to access any compliant content repository—much like SQL does for databases.
Purchase of the print book comes with an offer of a free PDF, ePub, and Kindle eBook from Manning. Also available is all code from the book.
