Alfresco Tech Talk - CMIS
Monday, February 23, 2009
What went right?
- I was able to demo the CMIS explorer live.
- I was able to demo Sten’s CMIS visualizer live.
- I was able to walk through my prepared OO presentation.
What went wrong?
Apparently Adobe Connect is not fully compatible with Linux. I was able to join the meeting without incident. I was able to see the shared screen. Adobe was even able to detect my microphone and once I was assigned speaking privileges I was able to talk to everyone. Seemed like everything was working perfectly. Then it came time to share my desktop. Interesting. How do I do that? Eventually I was made aware that there should be an option under the ’share’ button for ‘my computer’. Of course, that option wasn’t there. Other options were, just not that one.
I had to reboot into Vista. Here’s the thing. I only boot to Vista for syncing my Zune. That is it. I have nothing else installed beside Adobe Flash for testing my CMIS explorer.
So, I had to start downloading OpenOffice (for my presentation) and Alfresco (to demo the CMIS explorer) when I began the talk. Thankfully I was able to fall back to one of my blog posts on CMIS to help guide me while I awaited the OO download. Eventually it completed, it was installed, and I was able to open my presentation.
Next you know I am finished with my presentation, but I’m still waiting for Alfresco to finish downloading. Again, I was able to fall back to one of my blogs posts on the CMIS explorer to help guide me. Eventually the download completed, I installed Alfresco, and I was able to demo the CMIS explorer live.
Now, I want to demo Sten’s CMIS visualizer. I also started that download back at the beginning of the talk. However, the download kept stalling and it took an eternity to download. So, I fell back to Sten’s post to show some images of it in action. Once again, the download finished and I was able to demo it live.
There were a few questions.
Am I going to contribute this back to the community? Yes. I just haven’t determined if I’m going to check in the code as Flex Builder project or as a Maven project.
Did I use a Flex framework? No. I haven’t had the need yet, but I am strongly considering Mate.
Does CMIS support other interfaces besides REST/ATOM? Yes. Alfresco supports web services as well. In addition, the specification mentions WebDAV.
I guess I’m getting good at improvising. Anyways, here is my brief (and I mean brief) presentation on Alfresco/CMIS.
So until next time, good fight, good night.
