Subject Re: getting images directly with alfresco

Hi Christopher,

There is no way to get the "alf_ticket" through OpenCMIS. You have to use the Alfresco APIs
to request a ticket.
But you shouldn't do that. It opens a security hole.

Better build a proxy servlet that handles the download through OpenCMIS.
