Nuxeo EP currently supports 3 protocols to expose the document repository:
- the Windows Sharepoint Services protocol (only the sub set used by MS Office and MS Explorer).
Compared to the Service APIs, these protocols won't give you access to services but directly to the content.
Depending on the chosen protocol, your access to Nuxeo Content will be more or less powerful:
- CMIS gives you access to a big subset of the data managed by Nuxeo,
- WebDav and WSS mainly map Nuxeo's content as a file-system (with all the associated limitations).
These protocols may be useful in several use cases:
- Desktop integration,
- Allow a portal or a WCM solution to access Nuxeo's content.
