Contents:
How Do I Model Custom Metadata?
Alfresco’s content model is easily extended
Expressed as XML
Wired in to Alfresco through Spring configuration

What Are Actions?
Actions are discrete “units of work” that can be executed against one or more objects
Move
Check-in/Check-out
Copy
Add Aspect/Remove Aspect
Custom
Actions can be called from several different places
UI
Rules
Java & JavaScript
Workflow steps
Custom actions are written in Java
Action executer
Action handler (for actions that have user-configurable parameters)

Demo
Custom model XML & model context
Web client config XML
Configure a rule
Specialize the content type of HR documents
Show a custom action
Configure the “Move Replaced” action

Tools and Tips:
Models are implemented by writing XML and then telling Alfresco about it through Spring
Actions are implemented in Java
Nice way to encapsulate reusable content operations
Called from rules, the UI, JavaScript, workflow, web scripts, etc.
Rules are end-user configurable in the Explorer web client
Rules fire regardless of the client
Rules can operate on documents as they enter a folder, when they are updated, or as they leave
