Building a state of the art Content Repository with Apache Chemistry and CMIS
This talk will provide a global overview of Content Repository technology and explain in more detail how implementing the CMIS standard (Content Management Interoperability Services) within the Apache Chemistry project significantly changed the landscape of content management technology and enabled developers to build more sophisticated content repositories.
This talk will be of interest to any developer or architect curious to discover how a Content Repository can be a great middleware to help develop faster and better applications dealing with structured and unstructured data. It is also recommended to anyone who is interested in standards and who would like to have a better understanding of the OASIS CMIS standard and how it is implemented within the Apache Chemistry project.
The talk will provide:
- A global understanding of what a Content Repository is from a functional standpoint: exploring all the services it offers, identifying the main standards and technologies integrated (such as CMIS, which is a key one), and understanding the main technical challenges to be resolved, such as high scalability and high performance.
- An introduction and presentation of the Apache Chemistry project, which became an Apache top level project earlier this year.
- A retrospective on the evolution of this project and what it can bring compared to other technologies such as JCR.
