Content Management Interoperability Services (CMIS) is an open standard that defines an abstraction layer for controlling various document management systems and repositories using web protocols.
By integrating Apache Chemistry, OpenCms 8.5 has become a CMIS server. This means there is now a simple, web service oriented interface to read content from and write content to the OpenCms VFS "on the fly". Accessing the OpenCms repository was easy enough using the native API before, but with CMIS you can access the repository even from a remote server.
Georg will introduce the CMIS standard to you and show how it has been integrated in OpenCms 8.5. He will explain the most common use cases and point out the possibilities and limitations of this powerful new interface in OpenCms.
