Java Authentication and Authorization Service (JAAS) is a set of Java packages that can be used for user authentication and authorization.
Java Content Repository (JCR) API
The Java Content Repository API is a standard Java API (as defined by JSR-170) for accessing content repositories. Alfresco provides support for JCR level 1 and level 2 giving standardized read and write access.
Java Foundation API
The Alfresco Java Foundation API is a set of services providing full access to the capabilities of the Alfresco repository. It is an in-process API meaning that the client must sit within the same process as the repository. For example, Alfresco Share uses this API and is packaged together with the repository in a single .war file for deployment to an application server.
Java Management Extension (JMX) interface
The JMX interface allows you to access Alfresco through a standard console that supports JMX remoting (JSR-160). Example consoles include, JConsole, MC4J, and JManage.
Java Virtual Machine
A Java Virtual Machine (JVM) interprets compiled Java binary code so that the computer processor can run instructions from a Java program.
JavaScript is a scripting language most often used for client-side web development. JavaScript is a trademark of Oracle.
JavaScript API
The Alfresco JavaScript API allows script writers to develop JavaScript (ECMA Script) 1.6 compatible scripts that access, modify and create Alfresco repository objects. The JavaScript API provides a simple, clean, and object-oriented access to well known Alfresco concepts such as nodes, properties, associations, and aspects.
JavaScript Object Notation
JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) is an open standard format that uses human-readable text to transmit data objects consisting of attribute–value pairs. It is used primarily to transmit data between a server and web application, as an alternative to XML. Source:
