Subject Re: IBM FileNet P8 CMIS URL addressability + Daeja ViewOne Viewer
Date Thu, 28 Aug 2014 16:30:49 GMT
Hi,

Do you mean 'Would you want the client to request the *URL* with an extra
extension parameter..."?

I'll be retrieving the URL with this (straight from your book):

        if (session.getBinding().getObjectService() instanceof LinkAccess) {
            return ((LinkAccess)
session.getBinding().getObjectService()).loadContentLink(session.getRepositoryInfo()
                    .getId(), document.getId());
        }

If that URL had the token, great - if not and we had to do something extra
(like add it ourselves somehow), still OK.  The main thing is that the
repository can actually use a URL with the token in it.

Another thing occurred to me - would some kind of Single-sign on make all
this 'just work' (including the viewer)?  Apologies that I keep mentioning
the viewer, but it's the main problem here!

Thanks,

Tim
