Working with Sites through CMIS

Hello everyone,

im currently working on my final year project, i was assigned to implement file sharing system on a Java client that the company provided me, since they are working with Alfresco 5.2, i suggested that i work with the ReST API since it gives the possibility to create and manage Sites, and it fits exactly into there needs (sharing files, restricting permission etc...) However the company refused my solution because the ReST API is owned by alfresco and that they need a CMIS solution that can work with any ECM, i tried working with OpenCMIS but it doesnt provide any file sharing services, i was wondering, if there is a way to work with sites using CMIS or i will have to work with ReST API.

thanks in advance.

Hi @motazsouid,

For site creation you will need to use ReST APIs, I believe. AFAIK, CMIS can create folders but not sites - see this discussion on CMIS limitations.
