The following are short (less than 10 minutes) introductory videos to features of the Alfresco Web Quick Start. I plan to record several over the next few weeks covering topics such as installation, renditions, asset collections, user generated content, publishing etc.Posted on November 26, 2010 by admin Read More

UPDATE: Alfresco 3.4.a Community is now available including the Web Quick Start AMP files and web application. See alfresco-community-wcmqs-3.4.a.zip here or the QS is listed as an install option from the main Alfresco installers e.g. alfresco-community-3.4.a-installer-win-x32.exe.
We have just merged the Web Quick Start (QS) files to HEAD in preparation for the 3.4 Community release at the end of September. Once complete, the QS will have its own installers and documentation, however I thought I would provide a quick overview of some of the features that the QS provides for those who want to take an early look.
As with anything within the HEAD code line, it comes with a warning that this is work in progress, and is subject to regular change.
What is the Web QS?
The Web Quick Start is a sample application built on the Alfresco platform. It provides an end-to-end WCM example including an authoring and publishing environment using Alfresco Share and a web application built using Spring MVC, Spring Surf and OpenCMIS. The web site is delivered dynamically using Alfresco as a CMIS runtime.
The primary design goals of the QS are to illustrate the power of the Alfresco platform in an easy-to-install package and to provide developers with a strong starting point for their Alfresco implementations. Both of these goals are fundamentally aimed at getting both business people and developers up and running with the Alfresco WCM platform in as short a time as possible. The Alfresco core product has not been changed in any way, just extended by plugging in content model, behaviours, workflows, etc using the many standard hooks provided by the Alfresco product.
The QS website will eventually be available in three flavours for different vertical markets, however the version in HEAD currently is loosely modelled on a Finance news site, but with the intention that this can be re-purposed very easily.Posted on September 9, 2010 by admin Read More
