Day and Nuxeo Partner for Java Implementation of CMIS

This had to happen sooner or later. With all the buzz around the soon-to-be-standard CMIS and all the issues and debates surrounding the spec, it was only a matter of time before a Java giant like Day Software would do a Java-based implementation of the proposed standard.

Meet Apache Chemistry (the name is based on CMIS, as in !CheMIStry). This is a recently possibly soon to be approved Apache Incubator Project that aims to provide a Java (and possibly JavaScript) CMIS implementation framework.

What to expect:

  • a high-level API for developers
  • a low-level SPI close to the CMIS protocol
  • default implementations of the above
  • covering both the AtomPub and SOAP bindings defined in the CMIS

Day has partnered with Nuxeo (who contributed their own initial implementation) to sync and consolidate with Day’s CMIS implementation.

These are the initial sources for the Chemistry project:

More details later, stay tuned!

  1. Although it’s close, the Chemistry project is not yet accepted by the Apache Incubator: a 72-hour “lazy consensus” vote is still open until Thursday morning [1]. But I don’t see why that wouldn’t pass, and agree that it’s good to spread the good news early on 😉

    This explains why Apache Chemistry does not have a web page yet, that should be at http://incubator.apache.org/chemistry in a few days.

    (and with my Apache hat on: once a project enters the foundation it’s no longer “Day and Nuxeo”, it’s “people collaborating at the Apache Software Foundation” 😉

  2. Thanks, Bertrand 🙂 Fixed, got too excited, jumped the gun — what can I say 😉

    And, yes, of course, it’s all about the community and people — including, those from Day, Nuxeo and Alfresco.

    No big deal, thanks for fixing! And let’s also mention my good friends from SourceSense, who are also part of the initial effort. A conversation in a taxi with Paolo last year played an important role in making this happen!
