Subject Re: CMIS and Transactions

G’day Joshy,

Depends how the server implements the “local” binding - again you’re into proprietary
extension land at that point.

Cheers,
Peter

Thanks again Peter.

While going through Open CMIS Documentation, I came across references to a
non-standard 'Local' Binding provided by Open CMIS Framework. My
understanding is that this is a binding that can be used to invoke a CMIS
Server running in the same JVM. If one were to target a new/existing  Open
CMIS based CMIS Server Implementation over a 'Local' binding, is it
possible that it can participate in the transaction started by the client?

Thanks,
Joshy

JCR is just a Java API, so it's technically easy to “integrate” it with
any other Java API-based standard (including JTA for transaction
management).  In contrast CMIS is far less less platform dependent and is
designed primarily for “out of process” clients, both of which makes this
kind of thing a fair bit more complex.

As I mentioned below, it would be technically possible for a given CMIS
server to support this kind of thing as a proprietary extension, but I
don’t know of any servers that have done so.  It would probably involve
something nasty like X/Open XA<
http://pubs.opengroup.org/onlinepubs/009680699/toc.pdf> or similar, since
you’re effectively managing distributed transactions at that point.  I, for
one, welcome our new stateless-favouring overlords.  ;-)

Cheers,
Peter

Thanks Peter.
I was just considering the possibility of replacing a JSR 170 Compliant
Repository with a CMIS Compliant one. From the documentation, it looks like
JSR 170 Repository could potentially support transactions.

Thanks,
Joshy

G’day Joshy,

There is no such provision in the spec, although I believe it’s
technically possible via proprietary extensions.  I have no idea if any
current servers offer this however (Alfresco doesn’t, for example).

Interesting point of note - the 1.1 spec doesn’t even state whether
individual services are atomic or not.  It seems to be implied that they
are (e.g. in sections 2.2.4.14 and 2.2.4.17), and I believe most current
servers are implemented that way, but it was interesting to me that that
isn’t explicitly defined anywhere.

Cheers,
Peter

Hi,

I apologise if this is the incorrect forum to ask this question.

Does anyone know if CMIS Specification mentions about Transactions? For
example, is there any possibility for a CMIS Repository API Invocation to
participate in a transaction started by the client of the API?


Thanks,
Joshy
