Using cmislib to migrate digital assets to CMIS repositories

The follow-on to my introduction to cmislib, published on developerWorks earlier in the week, is now live. In the article, Jay Brown, the development lead for IBM’s CMIS servers, walks you through a small utility that leverages Python and cmislib to xcopy image files (and their embedded EXIF metadata) into a CMIS repository.

When Jay wrote the article and the code that goes with it, he initially tested against his own IBM CMIS servers. As soon as the core functionality was complete, he changed the service URL in his config file to point to Alfresco’s CMIS server and it ran like a charm. That’s the beauty of CMIS and cmislib: Write once, manage digital assets anywhere.
