JavaScript: The Good Parts Review

JavaScript: The Good PartsThe Bottom Line

I just finished reading JavaScript: The Good Parts from O'Reilly Media/Yahoo Press. Getting straight to the point, I would give it 5/5 stars. The main reasons for the rating are that it is well written and organized and full of valuable information and examples. Even though the book is a little dated now, multiple people have recommended that I read it over the past few years. I believe it has held up very well since 2008 when it was published. I think it is a must read for anyone programming with JavaScript, which is basically anyone who has ever had to do any front end programming these days. It is aimed at those who have some experience with JavaScript.

Alfresco 4 Enterprise Content Management Implementation Review

Alfresco 4 Enterprise Content Management ImplementationThe Bottom Line

I just finished reading Alfresco 4 Enterprise Content Management Implementation from Packt Publishing. Getting straight to the point, I would give it 3/5 stars. The main reasons for the rating are that nearly every page of the book has a grammatical error, almost the entire book focuses on Alfresco Explorer rather than Alfresco Share, and I don't believe that the authors went into the appropriate depth for the intended audience. Even though the book has some flaws, it is filled with useful information and would provide an excellent foundation for a content management project or evaluating Alfresco.

Alfresco Share Genealogy

In February, Tribloom hosted a Lunch & Learn in Salt Lake City, UT. In a bit of free time I had a chance to visit the Family Search Center in downtown SLC. I have always been interested in learning more about my family history and this was the perfect opportunity to do a little research. I quickly found more information than I could easily manage on a piece of paper. Being an engineer, I decided that I needed a better system with which to manage my family history information. I looked around the internet and did not find any obvious free software that I could use so I decided to use Alfresco (I have since been informed of a free software called GRAMPS that does manage personal family history). It took me about a day to customize to the point where it was usable and a couple more to do some really interesting things which I will outline here.

Demo Projects Version 2

I recently revised both the Alfresco Share Demo and Alfresco Repository Demo Eclipse projects. I added the ability to compile and package Java code to the Share project while only minor revisions were made to the Repository project.

Introducing the File System Transfer Receiver (FSTR)

Last week I had a chance to experiment with the new File System Transfer Receiver (FSTR) also known as the File Transfer Receiver (FTR) in Alfresco 4.0.0 Enterprise. This is also available in the community version. Since directions are a little spotty, I thought I would give a rundown of the process of setting it up.

Background

Alfresco's Transfer Service (wiki, docs) was introduced in version 3.3 as a means to transfer from one Alfresco repository to another Alfresco repository. Alone this isn't particularly useful to an Alfresco user as it primarily allows programmatic access to the Transfer Service, but when combined with the Replication Service (wiki, docs) it becomes very powerful. The Replication Service allows an Alfresco user to create a one time or recurring transfer of content from one repository to another. You can select which content to transfer as well as where to transfer it to. A piece that was missing previously was a transfer from an Alfresco repository to the file system.
