Although, in many other projects I am using Spring Boot and different tools provided by the Spring Cloud ecosystem and all the new microservices developed by Alfresco are mostly based on the same Spring Boot platform, my life started to be complicated as I could not provide the same or similar features for Alfresco itself.
Simple JWT instead of Alfresco Identity Service
The goal here is to sign our own JWT and send it to our Alfresco repository (+Share, +ADF apps) via standard http headers. However, I am not keen implementing any custom module on the repository side but just reuse everything Alfresco provides via the “identity-service” authentication subsystem.
Alfresco and microservices – SSO over Spring Cloud Gateway
Alfresco introduced ActiveMQ as a messaging platform for its own internal usage, but it seems that the community edition will not benefit of that, therefore we are left alone to find out other ways in order to integrate our custom microservices with the Alfresco platform
Alfresco – microservices integrations
Alfresco content has its metadata and audit trail, which can be of a great value – if you could read, structure and interpret it. For quite a while I was wondering how to integrate custom microservices with Alfresco but without custom AMPs or custom code running inside the repository. I knew that SOLR tracks Alfresco transactions and that there is a SOLR API on the […]
Alfresco @MVC part 2 – views
As explained in my previous post, the idea behind Alfresco @MVC is to provide spring annotations through an Alfresco webscript. Why a webscript? Well, simply because it avoids changing the web.xml file and to use AMPs (alfresco module packages). A part from that, all this would allow to use spring views and all the features spring @MVC has to offer, […]
Content repositories and their user interface
After a long time I decided to write my thoughts about enterprise content management systems (CMS) like Alfresco and the user interface that is distributed with it. In an effort to simplify their IT architectures and optimize systems company-wide, many businesses are standardizing on a single content- management platform for document management, Web-content management, imaging and intranet publishing. To do […]
Review : Alfresco 3 Enterprise Content Management Implementation
When I started reading this book (Alfresco 3 Enterprise Content Management Implementation) I had the sentiment it will be a comparison between the JSF UI client and Share. However, the authors guide the reader through the complete deployment lifecycle, from the installation of Alfresco and MySql to the usage of the exposed interfaces or protocols like CIFS, CMIS and the […]
Book : Alfresco 3 Enterprise Content Management Implementation
I received a new book for review and before I read it and publish my comments here is an extracted article titled “Implementing Alfresco 3.0 Documentation“ that could be of interest for some of you.
Are Javaspaces recognized?
After some long discussions with my partner about the JavaSpaces topic I still have no clue why JavaSpaces or at least the Space Based Architecture (SBA) is not adopted by the developers and/or the “architects”. Personally, when it comes only to Java, I think that JavaSpaces could offer a complete stack from the event driven approach to rule engines, with […]
