Initial CMIS Sandbox Description

New page:
=== What is CMIS? ===
CMIS stands for Content Manegement Interoperability Services and consists mainly of 
two network bindings for essential Document Management operations.

CMIS is in the process of being developed at [http://xml.coverpages.org/cmis.html OASIS].

=== The CMIS Sandbox at Jackrabbit ===
Based on interest from various Apache Communities the CMIS Sandbox is hosted by the Apache
Jackrabbit project
and is open to all committers of the ASF.

Sumamrizing conversations on the dev mailing list the goal of this effort would be to build
a freely available implementation and client of the CMIS specification as it grows. While
the CMIS specification is still under development the early implementation will allow to give
feedback to the Technical Committee at OASIS to modify and improve the specification.

The implementation should not need any Jackrabbit (Content Repository) specific dependencies
but should be as portable and reusable for other implementations as possible.

=== Overall Proposed Architecture ===

The overall Architecture is separated into three major blocks as reflected in the [http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/jackrabbit/sandbox/jcr-cmis/
SVN Layout].

The API represents the Java Language Bindings of the CMIS Model and therefore is used to implement
both the CMIS client (that exposes the API) but also the server that allows for plug-able
implementation of that.

=== Proposed Server Architecture ===

The CMIS Server is architected in a fashion that offers a Layered approach. The AtomPub and
SOAP bindings are separated by the API. This allows to use both protocol implementations while
just having to implement the API on any particular proprietary or standard based server.
In Jackrabbit the implementation of the API then will use a standards based JCR binding to
avoid and Jackrabbit specific bindings and hence allows to be run on any third party JCR implementation.

=== Proposed Client Architecture ===

To provide a general purpose CMIS Java client it is important of course provide language bindings
of the CMIS Model and then implement the two protocols proposed by CMIS. This will not only
be used by Java Application Developers that want to consume CMIS but also can serve as an
initial test suite to test any servers interoperability.

=== First Steps with the CMIS Server ===
