Subject RE: CMIS Swagger REST API - PogeyanOSS
Date Wed, 04 Oct 2017 17:03:18 GMT
Hi Florian, 

Thanks for your point on licensing, I have updated that.

>From the project itself, we would like to see feedbacks on the following,

1) Can we add more REST endpoints that will help expose CMIS APIs thru simple REST based access.
For example: currently we have a POST HTTP action generated for every base type + custom type
that is found thru the Type Service, the REST side of the story exposes a simple API, but
underlying it will create either a FOLDER, DOCUMENT or ITEM. This is really simple to consume
in existing applications without any dependency on CMIS libs or understanding of underlying
CMIS APIs. Similarly, Can we think of abstract notions for other services, such as versioning
for example, or navigating folder hierarchy etc., And also would be helpful if someone can
use it and give feedbacks 😊.

2) The Swagger definitions are basically a wrapper, which means it has run as another micro-service
in existing landscape. We wanted to have separate components so we can have deployments done
easily, is this fine?

3) And lastly, if such a project is useful, Can it be taken into the existing OSS projects
in Apache Chemistry? We would like to contribute such components in future and this will give
us an insight on how to proceed with the OpenCMIS community.

Hi Fahad,

That sounds like an interesting project.

How exactly can we help you?

There is one thing you should definitely do. All source files must have a header the matches
the license - in your case the Apache license.
You can find the a header template here (scroll down to the appendix):
