Alfresco: video thumbnails and transformations

By | Application integration & Middleware | No Comments

Alfresco support, by default, the preview in your browser of some video formats like mp4 but doesn’t support some others like mkv, avi or wmv. Even if Google Chrome can read mkv files for example, if you try to use the action “View in Browser” (this is not the same thing as the preview), Chrome will not try to play the mkv file but will download it instead. That’s why if you upload an mp4…

By | Application integration & Middleware | No Comments

QlikView is a product of the software company named Qlik (previously known as QlikTech) which was designed to provide business intelligence & visualization capabilities using reports or dashboards.

Kerberos configuration for DFS 6.7 SP1

By | Application integration & Middleware | No Comments

In my last post, I explained how to configure Kerberos for a CS 6.7 SP1. Unfortunately if you only configure the Content Server, it will almost be useless… If you want this configuration to be useful, then you will also have to configure the Kerberos SSO for the Documentum Foundation Services (DFS). That’s why in this blog post I will describe step by step what need to be done for that purpose. So what are…

By | Application integration & Middleware | No Comments

In this post I will try to explain in detail what need to be done to configure the Kerberos SSO for the Content Server. Actually it’s not that hard to do it but you may face some…

Alfresco: some useful database queries

By | Application integration & Middleware, Entreprise content management | 30 Comments

In my previous post, I talked about the Lifecycle of Alfresco Nodes. You may have noticed that I tried to insert in my explanations some elements that are specific to databases (tables, fields, aso…). These elements are quite essential to prepare a post like this one: more database oriented. I already explained what exactly are the consequences on the database side when a node is removed and I will try in this post to share some useful…

Understand the Lifecycle of Alfresco Nodes

By | Application integration & Middleware | 15 Comments

I guess you all already know what a lifecycle is. We born, we live and we die… In fact, it’s exactly the same for Aflresco Nodes! Well, at least from an end user point of view. But what is really going on behind that? This is what I will try to explain in this post. First of all what is an Alfresco Node? For most people, a Node is just a document stored in Alfresco…

By | Application integration & Middleware | 2 Comments

For several months now, I’ve been working on some QlikView projects which is a quite interesting discovery for me.

By | Application integration & Middleware | No Comments

As I said in my last blog, the Alfresco Summit 2014 took place in London from October 7 to 9. So yeah, unfortunately yesterday was the last day of this amazing event. It’s the first time I had the chance to participate in an Alfresco Summit but I’m quite sure it will not be the last! I can’t tell what moment I preferred during this event because the Keynote (presentation of Alfresco One 5.0) was very…
