Subject [jira] [Commented] (CONNECTORS-1442) Initial implementation of the Alfresco BFSI Output Connector
Date Tue, 04 Jul 2017 18:06:00 GMT


Luis Cabaceira commented on CONNECTORS-1442:

Our strategy for migration content leveraging the ManifoldCF bsfi output connector is based
on managing deltas. The migration process can run in background during a longer period of
time to crawl for all existing documents and write them in the bfsi format.  

Because the system will be in use during the crawling process, we need to account for content
and data changes that occurred during the initial crawling . This makes tracking updates and
changes critical during migration and that is our current challenge. We need to rely on input
connectors that have implemented a  MODEL_ADD_CHANGE or MODEL_ADD_CHANGE_DELETE

> Luis Cabaceira (Solutions Architect @ Alfresco) contacted me for contributing in the
project with a brand new connector dedicated to massive contents migration against an Alfresco
> Alfresco provides a Bulk File System Import tool that allow to import contents written
in its own format in the file system:
> Basically binaries with also versions and metadata written in the Java Properties format.
> The most important functionality provided by this tool is the in-place feature. 
> Using it you can import contents directly inside the content store of Alfresco in the
file system and then import only nodes without the need to upload/stream binary contents.
> This new ManifoldCF connector will convert and write all the crawled contents in the
BFSI format in the remote file system. 
> In this way the extracted content can be dropped directly in the Alfresco content store
and then running the BFSI tool the repository will import contents without uploading/streaming
any binary.
> This is important because the BFSI tool is developed and fully supported by Alfresco.
> If some development will be required for adapting it with ManifoldCF, this will be done
by Luis  with also my support.
