Alfresco 3: Writing and Executing Scripts

by Snig Bhaumik | July 2011 | Open Source

An API (Application Programming Interface) is an interface implemented and offered by a software program that enables other applications to interact with it, or enables developers to write other applications on top of it. An API can be exposed in several different forms, such as internal class model and implementation–using which you can write your program, or as different services, for example, web services. As a solution developer of an Enterprise framework, you need to be proficient on the APIs provided and exposed by the framework.

In this article by Snig Bhaumik, author of Alfresco 3 Cookbook, we will take a look at how to write and execute scripts.

Alfresco 3 Business Solutions: Types of E-mail Integration

by Martin Bergljung | February 2011 | Content Management Open Source Web Development

The long-term vision for most ECM systems is to be able to handle almost any kind of content, and for many organizations e-mails are often next in line to manage after content such as documents, images, web content, and records. Alfresco can be used as an e-mail management solution and we will discuss what the difference is between that and an e-mail archiving solution.

In this article by Martin Bergljung, author of Alfresco 3 Business Solutions, we will look at the advantages and disadvantages between three different e-mail integration solutions and also learn how to use Alfresco's built in IMAP solution to:

  • Enable dragging-and-dropping of e-mails into the Alfresco repository
  • Enable e-mail attachment extraction
  • Enable viewing of document metadata from the e-mail client
  • Set up different folder mount points
  • Enable e-mail management in an Alfresco Share site

Alfresco 3 Business Solutions: Planning and Implementing Document Migration

by Martin Bergljung | February 2011 | Content Management Open Source

The Alfresco bulk filesystem import tool is probably the most efficient and fastest tool to use at the moment and will probably be many people's favorite tool for document migration. And it supports the very important feature of being able to preserve modified dates during imports. As discussed in the previous article on Document Migration Strategies, CIFS is also used by many for document imports because of its simplicity and non-intrusiveness (that is, you do not have to install anything).

In this article by Martin Bergljung, author of Alfresco 3 Business Solutions, you will learn:

  • Planning the document migration
  • Implementing document migration using purpose-built tools
