Subject Re: OpenCMIS and REST+JSON interface?
Date Fri, 15 Feb 2013 15:49:33 GMT
 Hi Andre,

 The OpenCMIS InMemory server provides a demo page that shows how a 
 JavaScript application in a browser can talk to a CMIS 1.1 repository 
 (source code is here: [1]).
 At SAP we have a product that does exactly that. The web interface 
 talks directly to the CMIS repository and performs all the basic 
 operations you would expect from a content management client.
 It is already there and working. :)
