    30. 30. Deployment In a Nutshell ?
    31. 31. What kind of sites can Alfresco manage? <ul><ul><li>Static – HTML, Images </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Dynamic - JSP, ASP, Coldfusion, PHP….. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Static or Dynamic or Both </li></ul>. Delivery technology Page compositing Deployment mechanism Personalization Performance Application developer skill-sets Static Web servers Submission time Filesystem Limited Ultimate Freemarker, XSLT, XSLT-FO Dynamic Application servers Request time Alfresco Runtime Unlimited Less than static Any web technology
    32. 32. Alfresco Runtimes <ul><li>Runtime Repository (in production) Can be used: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>As the search engine for the web site (applicable for both dynamic and static web sites) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>As a runtime content store that can be queried by a dynamic web application. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Web Scripts </li></ul><ul><ul><li>REST (HTTP) Based – Technology Independent </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Data Access API </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>HTML, XML, Text, JSON, Atom, RSS..... </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Supports cached results </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Authentication </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Can be used to provide: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Search </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Navigation </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Dynamic Page Assembly </li></ul></ul></ul>
    33. 33. A Hybrid Model? <ul><li>Hybrid – Mix Static and Dynamic </li></ul><ul><li>Page Composition Options </li></ul><ul><ul><li>“ Inside Out” </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Each page is dynamic and includes all page components dynamically (regardless of whether those components are static or dynamic) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>“ Outside In” </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Each page is static HTML with static components already embedded, but dynamic components included via an inclusion mechanism (eg. server side includes) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Note: The tradeoff between these two models is management complexity vs runtime performance. </li></ul>
