Learn About Everything Alfresco at DevCon 2011

Posted by on October 21, 2011

It’s that time of year again, when Alfresco enthusiasts get together to learn what’s new and network with other community members at the annual Alfresco developer conference.

This year, Alfresco DevCon Americas will be held in San Diego, CA on Oct. 26-27th, and will feature two packed days of Alfresco technical sessions delivered by some key engineers and visionaries behind the technology. The agenda includes tracks on Alfresco as a Platform, Best Practices, Customizing Alfresco, Case Studies, BPM, and Building WCM Solutions with Alfresco. The conference will also discuss all of the new features in Alfresco 4.0 – Share extensibility, Activiti, and Solr.

And of course Rivet Logic will be participating as a sponsor. We will also be presenting under the “Building WCM Solutions with Alfresco” track, on the topic of extending Alfresco for next generation WCM with our Crafter Studio extension.

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.
