Using Alfresco with Sun software products

Alfresco is a very popular open source Content management system (CMS) and Document management system (DMS). It competes well with commercial offerings. There has been a few instances of requests from technical folks, about the integration points between Alfresco and Sun software, primarily Glassfish application server, Sun Webspace portal server and OpenSSO.

Alfresco and Glassfish
Running Alfresco on Glassfish application server is pretty easy. This is well documented in Amanda’s blog and also the Alfresco web site.

Alfresco and OpenSSO
Alfresco is well integrated with OpenSSO and Sun Directory server.

Alfresco and Sun Webspace Portal server
The content and documents managed in Alfresco can be displayed or administered in Sun webspace portal via Portlets. The Alfresco web services API or the CMIS api can be used to accomplish this . There is also a white paper written by our ISV engineering team, let me know if you need it.

On a final note, the Sun webspace server has a built in content management and document management system. If your requirements can be met with what Webspace can offer, then there is no need to use a separate CMS and DMS system 😉
