Content Management Interoperability Services
"Content Management Interoperability Services (CMIS) is an open standard that allows different content management systems to inter-operate over the Internet. Specifically, CMIS defines an abstraction layer for controlling diverse document management systems and repositories using web protocols. CMIS defines a domain model plus Web Services and Restful AtomPub (RFC5023) bindings that can be used by applications. OASIS, a web standards consortium, approved CMIS as an OASIS Specification on May 1, 2010. CMIS 1.1 began its public review draft state (as of Sept 2012) at OASIS.
CMIS provides a common data model covering typed files and folders with generic properties that can be set or read. There is a set of services for adding and retrieving documents ('objects'). There may be an access control system, a checkout and version control facility, and the ability to define generic relations. Two protocol bindings are defined, one using WSDL and SOAP and another using Representational State Transfer (REST), using the AtomPub convention. The model is based on common architectures of document management systems."
This project aims to start the work on the CMIS capabilities of TYPO3 CMS. Everyone is invited to join.
