The replication service provides control for replicating content between different Alfresco repositories.
The replication service is responsible for persisting replication jobs that specify what is to be replicated, to where, and when. In addition, it monitors the status of currently executing replication jobs and enables replications to be canceled.
The replication service finds the nodes that need to be transferred, and then it delegates to the transfer service.
Alfresco Share provides the user interface for the replication service, which is available through the administration tools menu. The methods are exposed by Java-based replication web scripts.
