The Cover Pages: Alfresco and Joomla Provide Integration Based on CMIS - 0 views

  • Alfresco Software and Joomlatools today announced the first integration based on Content Management Interoperability Services (CMIS). The Alfresco:Joomla! integration module was built using the draft CMIS REST API to allow organizations running Joomla-based web sites to access Alfresco's robust open source content management repository.
  • The integration, built using the CMIS REST API, will enable millions of Joomla web sites to access the powerful back-end content repository services of Alfresco, ensuring security, compliance, and auditability. Users will be able to more effectively manage, preview and track increasing volumes of content and digital assets on collaborative Joomla web sites using Alfresco's content library. Similarly Alfresco users will be able to search, publish, share, download, and edit content directly on Joomla sites.
  • The proposed CMIS standard is currently being advanced by an OASIS technical committee and will enable anyone to develop content applications on open source Alfresco and deploy them on SharePoint, EMC, IBM, or OpenText. In September 2008, Alfresco released the industry's first draft implementation of the CMIS specification. The company has also recently made available the CMIS Developer Toolbox, which includes a working implementation and contains resources to assist developers in the CMIS community to start creating portable content applications, based on the draft specification.
    Hey, maybe web apps will after all be able to hold two-way conversations some day? :-)

IDABC - Revision of the EIF and AG - 0 views

  • In 2006, the European Commission has started the revision of the European Interoperability Framework (EIF) and the Architecture Guidelines (AG).
  • The European Commission has started drafting the EIF v2.0 in close cooperation with the concerned Commission services and with the Members States as well as with the Candidate Countries and EEA Countries as observers.
  • A draft document from which the final EIF V2.0 will be elaborated was available for external comments till the 22nd September. The proposal for the new EIF v2.0 that has been subject to consultation, is available: [3508 Kb]
    This planning document forms the basis for the forthcoming work to develop European Interoperability Framework v. 2.0. It is the overview of things to come, so to speak. Well worth the read to see how SOA concepts are evolving at the bleeding edge. But also noteworthy for the faceted expansion in the definition of "interoperability," which now includes: [i] political context; [ii] legal interop; [iii] organizational interop; [iv] semantic interop; and [v] technical interop. A lot of people talk the interop talk; this is a document from people who are walking the interop walk, striving to bring order out of the chaos of incompatible ICT systems across the E.U.
    Full disclosure: I submitted detailed comments on the draft of the subject document on behalf of the Universal Interoperability Council. One theme of my comments was embraced in this document: the document recognizes human-machine interactions as a facet of interoperability, moving accessibility and usability from sideshow treatment in the draft to part of the technical interop dimension of the plan.
