Subject Alfresco Webscripts Connector - Status update
Date Sun, 22 Nov 2015 17:19:37 GMT
Hi everyone,

I've just submitted based
on the great work of Chalita (thank you very much!) and some fixes, but
most importantly documentation
around the testing process (which have caused pain and headaches in the

I've also added a compatibility matrix in to
make clear which Alfresco, Manifold, Alfresco Indexer combinations are

Next steps (which should be rather quick)

   1. Merge PR on alfresco-indexer (will wait 48hrs for some feedback while
   running more tests)
   2. Release alfresco-indexer 0.8.0
   3. Change ManifoldCF version with 0.8.0 alfresco-indexer dependencies

2 random notes related to the connector:

   1. I'd like to extend tests in order to cover all use cases; I believe
   ACL changes and authorisation are a bit lacking; I'll create issues to keep
   2. The integration with new Alfresco versions is getting painful; of
   course this would be less painful if we could simply rely on Alfresco
   Public APIs <>;
   I will discuss internally (in Alfresco) the possibility to extend the
   Alfresco Public API with the endpoints added by alfresco-indexer, leading
   to the deprecation of alfresco-indexer (for good)

A huge thanks to Chalitha, Deanna, Paul for their precious feedback and
code! Any feedback is greatly appreciated.
