By | Application integration & Middleware | No Comments

In the previous blog, I described How to install and manage a Kerberos Server but that’s useless if there are no clients and if no application have been kerberized! That’s why in this blog I will explain in the first part how to install a kerberos client in linux.

How to install and manage a Kerberos Server

By | Application integration & Middleware | 3 Comments

For some time now, I have been working on how to set up a Single Sign-On (SSO) solution in my company.

Developing an archive action for Alfresco Share (1 of 2)

By | Application integration & Middleware | 2 Comments

A few weeks ago when I was working on setting up an Alfresco Community Edition v4.2.c, I came across a problem that took me quite some time. What I will talk about today is the customization of the actions provided by the interface of Alfresco Share. This action was tested on all sub-versions of Alfresco Community Edition 4.2 (a, b, c and d). Unfortunately, Alfresco Share does not provide function to archive content. To meet…
