Chapter 1. Introducing CMIS
This chapter covers
- Presenting the CMIS standard
- Setting up your development environment
- Taking your first CMIS steps using Groovy and the CMIS Workbench
- Understanding possible limitations before using CMIS for your project
This chapter introduces the Content Management Interoperability Services (CMIS) standard. After running through a high-level overview of the standard and learning why it’s important, you’ll work on a simple hands-on example. By the end of the chapter, you’ll have a reference server implementation running on your local machine and you’ll know how to use Groovy to work with objects stored in a CMIS server by using a handy tool from Apache Chemistry called CMIS Workbench.
