Content Transfer Applet

The Content Transfer Applet is part of fme's extensions gallery and automates the content transfer of Alfresco Share's check-out/check-in process. Features:

  • Check-out action triggered in Alfresco Share:
    • The applet automatically downloads the content file from the Alfresco repository to the client system, stores the file in a predefined folder and opens the document with the relevant client application.
    • The clients IP & file path are stored as properties on the working copy in the Alfresco repository
  • Continue Editing action triggered in Alfresco Share:
    • The applet opens the local file with the relevant application on the client
  • Check-in action triggered in Alfresco Share:
    • The applet uploads the local working copy file into the Alfresco repository and performs a check-in
