Taming the Beast: CMS integration on the desktop with CIFS, Office, Dreamweaver and anything else
We will talk implementation details and demonstrate the desktop integration possibilities with Alfresco's abstract file systems. Others can do FTP and WebDAV, we can also look just like a Windows or NFS share - and that gives a whole new range of options for user interaction.
Scriptable 'virtual' Windows executables can do server-side CMS functions, providing a zero-install solution without relying on the web browser.
We'll show how the CIFS emulation coupled with Alfresco's web virtualization can make working with standard web design applications on a web site an absolute breeze: edit directly and preview instantly.
We'll also open up the details of our Microsoft Office add-in: use CMS features to do all the hardwork and only do minimal Microsoft-specific coding.
