Thanks Jeff & Jay!

I will talk to the architects about IBM Content Navigator, it may be that they weren't aware
of that option!

I agree with Jeff.
It depends on what you would be adding to the CMIS services that are already there.

Have you considered using the IBM Content Navigator (CMIS) client as your common ECM client
/ mid tier service?  Since it already talks to CMIS repositories (including SharePoint 2013,
Alfresco, etc.) and you are already licensed to use it if you have a FileNet system.

I guess it depends on what you want the Common Document Service to look
like to the clients calling it. If you want it to look like a repository,
it could be implemented as a server. But I suspect you'd rather have it
look like a higher level service and that you'll have a fair amount of
needs in your Common Document Service API not covered by CMIS.
