About the author:
Martin Bergljung is a Principal ECM Architect at Ixxus, a UK Platinum Alfresco partner. He has over 25 years of experience in the IT sector, where he has worked with the Java platform since 1997. Martin began working with Alfresco in 2007, developing an e-mail management extension for Alfresco called OpsMailmanager. In 2009, he started working on Alfresco consulting projects, and has worked with customers such as Pearson, World Wildlife Fund, International Financial Data Services, the NHS, VHI Healthcare, Virgin Money, Unibet, BPN Paribas, University of Westminster, Aker Oilfield Services, and Amnesty International.

The Alfresco CMIS implementation is the basis for many existing CMIS applications, and it helps developers and architects use CMIS to integrate applications with Alfresco. Most applications that use CMIS opt for the simpler AtomPub protocol over the SOAP protocol. While programming CMIS applications in Java, the Apache Chemistry implementation of OpenCMIS can be used, which provides bindings for both the AtomPub and SOAP protocols. 

Alfresco CMIS is a practical, hands-on guide that provides readers with a number of clear, step-by-step exercises that will help them take advantage of the real power of CMIS. It starts off with an introduction to the CMIS standard in order to give an update on the service API, object model, and query language. The book will show readers how to use Alfresco’s implementation of CMIS through a tutorial-based approach, with plenty of practical examples to help illustrate the concepts. The book will help readers understand Enterprise Application Integration (EAI) with CMIS using Drupal and Mule ESB, and will also give readers a good foundation in using CMIS via HTTP/XML, Java, or scripting. 

The book covers the following essential topics:

Chapter 1: Getting Started with CMIS
Chapter 2: Basic CMIS Operations
Chapter 3: Advanced CMIS Operations
Chapter 4: Alfresco and CMIS
Chapter 5: Accessing a CMIS Server with a Java Client
Chapter 6: Accessing a CMIS Server from Scripting Languages
Chapter 7: System Integration with CMIS

This book is ideal for developers who want to learn how to build applications that talk to content management servers in a standard way using CMIS. It will be helpful for readers to have a bit of programming experience, although this is not necessary.
