Subject RE: Oracle Connector for SharePoint
Date Fri, 22 Jul 2011 20:40:12 GMT
I'm not up for working on CMIS at this time, personally, but I think there is an open-source
toolkit from Alfresco that might help if it is not already being used.  John Newton was very
keen on encouraging CMIS adoption, of course.

I also agree that using the open-standards route for an adapter is a good idea.

Although Microsoft was very prominent on the OASIS CMIS Committee, and one of the contributors
of the initial specifications, I don't know which version of Sharepoint provides CMIS access
nor how well-developed it is.  This seems like the place to start though: <>.

This is interesting too, <>.
 The client-side Apache Chemistry code is in Java, but it might be useful to examine for design

i have it on my private agenda yes. I was deeply involved in both the
Alfresco and the Sharepoint connector and a more general CMIS connector was
in our heads already ;-) It will be probaly one of the first projects where
we can benefit from another Apache project (Chemistry).
