Solr Sharding – Concepts & Methods

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

A few weeks ago, I published a series of blog on the Alfresco Clustering, including Solr Sharding. At that time, I planned to first explain what is really the Solr Sharding, what are the different concepts and methods around it. Unfortunately, I didn’t get the time to write this blog so I had to post the one related to Solr even before explaining the basics. Today, I’m here to rights my wrong! Obviously, this blog…

Alfresco – Share Clustering fail with ‘Ignored XML validation warning’

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

In a recent project on Alfresco, I had to setup a Clustering environment. It all went smoothly but I did face one single issue with the setup of the Clustering on the Alfresco Share layer. That’s something I never faced before and you will understand why below. Initially, to setup the Alfresco Share Clustering, I used the sample file packaged in the distribution zip (E.g.: alfresco-content-services-distribution-6.1.0.5.zip): <?xml version=’1.0′ encoding=’UTF-8′?> <beans xmlns=”http://www.springframework.org/schema/beans” xmlns:xsi=”http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance” xmlns:hz=”http://www.hazelcast.com/schema/spring” xsi:schemaLocation=”http://www.springframework.org/schema/beans http://www.springframework.org/schema/beans/spring-beans-2.5.xsd…

Alfresco Clustering – Solr6

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

In previous blogs, I talked about some basis and presented some possible architectures for Alfresco, I talked about the Clustering setup for the Alfresco Repository, the Alfresco Share and for ActiveMQ. I also setup an Apache HTTPD as a Load Balancer. In this one, I will talk about the last layer that I wanted to present, which is Solr and more particularly Solr6 (Alfresco Search Services) Sharding. I planned on writing a blog related to…

Alfresco Clustering – Apache HTTPD as Load Balancer

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

In previous blogs, I talked about some basis and presented some possible architectures for Alfresco, I talked about the Clustering setup for the Alfresco Repository, the Alfresco Share and for ActiveMQ. In this one, I will talk about the Front-end layer, but in a very particular setup because it will also act as a Load Balancer. For an Alfresco solution, you can choose the front-end that you prefer and it can just act as a…

Alfresco Clustering – ActiveMQ

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

In previous blogs, I talked about some basis and presented some possible architectures for Alfresco, I talked about the Clustering setup for the Alfresco Repository and the Alfresco Share. In this one, I will work on the ActiveMQ layer. I recently posted something related to the setup of ActiveMQ and some initial configuration. I will therefore extend this topic in this blog with what needs to be done to have a simple Cluster for ActiveMQ….

Alfresco Clustering – Share

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

In previous blogs, I talked about some basis and presented some possible architectures for Alfresco and I talked about the Clustering setup for the Alfresco Repository. In this one, I will work on the Alfresco Share layer. Therefore, if you are using another client like a CMIS/REST client or an ADF Application, it won’t work that way, but you might or might not need Clustering at that layer, it depends how the Application is working….

Alfresco Clustering – Repository

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

In a previous blog, I talked about some basis and presented some possible architectures for Alfresco. Now that this introduction has been done, let’s dig into the real blogs about how to setup a HA/Clustering Alfresco environment. In this blog in particular, I will talk about the Repository layer. For the Repository Clustering, there are three prerequisites (and that’s all you need): A valid license which include the Repository Clustering A shared file system which…

Alfresco Clustering – Basis & Architectures

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

This blog will be the first of a series on Alfresco HA/Clustering topics. It’s been too long I haven’t posted anything related to Alfresco so I thought about writing a few blogs about my experience with setting up more or less complex HA/Clustering infrastructures. So, let’s start this first part with an introduction to the Alfresco HA/Clustering. If you want to setup a HA/Cluster environment, you will have to first think about where you want…

Alfresco – ActiveMQ basic setup

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

ActiveMQ is an open source Java Messaging Server (JMS) from the Apache Software Foundation that supports a lot of protocols. In Alfresco 5, ActiveMQ has been introduced as a new, optional, component in the stack. It was, at the beginning, only used for “side” features like Alfresco Analytics or Alfresco Media Management in the early Alfresco 5.0. In Alfresco 6.0, ActiveMQ was still used for Alfresco Media Management but also for the Alfresco Sync Service….

Alfresco DevCon 2018 – Day 2 – Big files, Solr Sharding and Minecraft, again!

By | Application integration & Middleware, Entreprise content management | 3 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…
