Alfresco 5.2 our DMS of choice!

By | Enterprise 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…

Alfresco: cleanup your dev environment

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,…

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…

Alfresco: some useful database queries

By | Application integration & Middleware, Enterprise content management | 122 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 | 21 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…
