OpenCms 8.5 added the CMIS interface that allows standardized access to the contents located in the OpenCms repository. OpenCms 9 takes the concept of standardized access to the repository one step further by allowing OpenCms folders to be mounted as Windows (or Samba) shared network drives.
With OpenCms 9 shared folders, content managers can manage images and documents in the OpenCms repository simply on their local desktop. This is especially appealing if OpenCms is used in the Intranet.
In this workshop, Georg will show how to set up OpenCms folders so that they can be shared with Windows. He will also explain how to access and manage resources in an OpenCms module directly from an IDE such as Eclipse.
