By | Application integration & Middleware, Entreprise content management | No Comments

Today is the second day of the Alfresco DevCon 2018 and therefore yes, it is already over, unfortunately. In this blog, I will be continuing my previous one with sessions I attended on the afternoon of the day-1 as well as day-2. There were too many interesting sessions and I don’t really have the time to talk about all of them… But if you are interested, all the sessions were recorded (as always) so wait…

Alfresco DevCon 2018 – Day 1 – ADF, ADF and… ADF!

By | Application integration & Middleware, Entreprise content management | 2 Comments

Here we are, the Alfresco DevCon 2018 day-1 is over (well except for the social party)! It’s been already 2 years I attended my last Alfresco event (BeeCon 2016, first of its name (organized by the Order of the Bee)) because I wasn’t able to attend the second BeeCon (2017) since it happened on the exact dates of our internal dbi xChange event. Yesterday was the DevCon 2018 day-0 with the Hack-a-thon, the full day…

Alfresco – Unable to move/rename a file/folder using AOS

By | Application integration & Middleware, Entreprise content management | No Comments

When playing with the AOS implementation, a colleague of mine faced an interesting issue where he just wasn’t able to move or rename any files or folders. The creation and deletion were working properly but he was unable to move or rename anything when using a Network Location or a Network Drive. This environment was freshly installed with a front-end (Apache HTTPD) setup in SSL so we worked together to find out what was the…

Alfresco 5.2 our DMS of choice!

By | Entreprise content management | No Comments

Introduction Nowadays companies have to deal with lots of electronic documents, some of them being mission critical. Insurances, Banks and Pharma industries are good candidates for ECM/DMS solutions since they produce and deal with lots of documentations, contracts and receipts. Usually the largest ECM/DMS infrastructures can be found at those customers which initiate large digitalization processes. However even for smaller businesses, managing e-documents like sales quotations, offers, answers to RFIs and RFPs becomes mission critical….

BeeCon – Day 2 – Activiti, SDK/SPK, Migration and Zombies

By | Application integration & Middleware | 2 Comments

I didn’t say that yesterday but the BeeCon is a two days event. Yesterday was the first day and therefore the BeeCon is now officially over… I’m quite sad because these two days were really great and I would have wanted them to continue a little bit more.   I was finally able to meet some people from the Order Of The Bee with whom I had quite interesting discussions over the past few months…

BeeCon – Day 1 – The place to be for Alfresco

By | Application integration & Middleware | No Comments

BeeCon? Beacon? Bacon? Is it some kind of party where you eat some bacon the whole day? Well… Sort of but it is much better! So let me present you the reason behind the BeeCon first.   Back in the Alfresco Summit 2013, the idea of an organization, a group or people from the Alfresco Community came up. This idea grew up and finally in 2014, the Order Of The Bee (OOTB) was created. You…

As an Alfresco developer/administrator, you probably already made a few mistakes in your DEV environment while trying to add new features, a custom model or something like that. The result of that mistake might be a corrupted Database or Content Store. Yes I know it’s hard to recognize it! But then what can be done to solve the issue and restore an usable installation? Well if you don’t have a backup or don’t want to…

Alfresco: upgrade your version of Apache Tomcat

By | Application integration & Middleware | No Comments

Different versions of Alfresco can be installed with different versions of Tomcat. Alfresco provide a default version with its installer but when installing Alfresco manually, an administrator can choose to install Alfresco using a different version of Apache Tomcat. Usually, each version of Alfresco is officially supported for only one specific version of Apache Tomcat and that’s fine for some use cases but I think that most Alfresco administrators will not follow this specific recommendation,…
