Programming with CMIS

Content Management Interoperability Services (CMIS) is an OASIS standard designed for the ECM industry. CMIS enables access to any content management systems that implement CMIS, such as Microsoft SharePoint, IBM FileNet, EMC Documentum, and Alfresco in a standardized and interoperable way.

CMIS allows you to build applications that are not locked into any content management system and to future-proof those applications. It provides a rich set of functionality, yet is capable of handling a wide variety of content management systems. CMIS provides a set of content services for managing content metadata, versioning, folder containment, associations, and binary transfer, and a query language based upon SQL querying content, its metadata, and context.
