I guess what you are looking for is an Association.

Here is a helpful link. You can find more details on alfresco docs.

Thanks for you reply Hardik...

If we use Association then how can we retrieve all the associated documents in a CMIS Query?

Within a CMIS query you cannot retrieve associated documents. You would have to issue a second CMIS operation to fetch the relationships of a particular search result to get its related documents.

Thanks Axel...

If that is the case.. Take for example a Product will have Many Images.

If Product is a type which is associated ProductImage Type with many true.

if i retrieve product in first operation using CMIS Query.. i won't get any relationship(Association here) details in that.

Then on which condition i will make second operation to get those associated documents...

Thanks in Advance for your valuable answer... Smiley Happy

The operation to retrieve the associations for a specific CMIS object is quite simple. You may be confusing it with doing another search/query, but it is a separate operation (getObjectRelationships). The "condition" (parameter) would the ID of the object from which you want to get the relationships.
