This part of the book is a gentle introduction to the Content Management Interoperability Services (CMIS) standard, as well as the tools and concepts you need to know to work with CMIS-compliant repositories. Chapter 1 shows you how to perform the most basic interactions possible. Chapter 2 covers the basic building blocks of a CMIS repository: folders and documents. As the chapters progress, you’ll learn more and more about CMIS concepts, such as versioning (in chapter 3), types (in chapter 4), and queries (in chapter 5). By the end of this part of the book, you’ll be ready to write your own CMIS client.
