Updated Version of RAAr Released to Support Latest Alfresco Releases

Posted by on June 02, 2010

Rivet Logic recently released the newly updated Remote Alfresco API rivet (RAAr) to support the latest Alfresco releases. RAAr was first released to the Alfresco community back in October of 2008, and provides an abstraction layer for remote communication with Alfresco ECM.

RAAr provides a simple, Java-based local library that may be used by one or more content rich applications and allows these applications to interface to Alfresco (including multiple Alfresco repositories from the same application). RAAr’s lower layers handle communication to remote Alfresco instances over ReSTful calls to Alfresco that get mapped to calls to the Alfresco Foundation Services (AFS) API.

RAAr’s Java library is backed by an Alfresco Web Script-based Java services that marshal/unmarshal calls and direct them to AFS. RAAr takes care of marshaling/unmarshaling of parameters and handles connection management to multiple-Alfresco instances. Furthermore, RAAr provides more coarse-grained calls for better remoting to enhance performance.

This new version of RAAr will support the latest Alfresco 3.1.x and 3.2.x releases.

RAAr is a free and open source software licensed under the GNU General Public License (GPL) version 3.0. For more information, please visit http://www.rivetlogic.com/Forge/Rivets/Remote_Alfresco_API_Rivet.

Releases, Launches & Updates

Posted by on March 30, 2010

2010 is off to an exiting start for Rivet Logic so far with lots of stuff going on. Here’s what’s been keeping us busy recently….

A couple weeks ago, we officially released the JSP and Spring MVC versions of Crafter rivet, the open source Web content delivery framework we originally launched back in September of 2009. As part of our continuing commitment towards the open source community, we decided to build and expand upon the existing feature set of Crafter, to accommodate both JSP and Spring MVC based Web applications.

Last week marked our official launch of our near-shore software development facility down in Costa Rica. Although the Costa Rica center has been in operation since last year, it has only recently expanded to make near-shore services readily available to our customers.

Today, we’ll be participating as a panelist on open source CMS for a local DC WCM Meetup group meeting. The meeting is open to all, so if you’re in the area, swing by!
