Programming with Alfresco services

Services are core to the Alfresco content application server and are used by all applications working against the server. These applications include the Alfresco Explorer and Alfresco Share clients, Virtual File System interfaces such as CIFS, WebDAV, and APIs.
The APIs fall into two main categories:
  • Embedded APIs are available directly against the server
  • Remote APIs run on a separate tier
You can use these APIs as appropriate to access and extend Alfresco out-of-the-box services.
