Creating a session

These examples show the first steps that are required in client applications: How to create a session and connect to a repository.

A complete list of all session parameters can be found here.

AtomPub binding

// default factory implementation
SessionFactory factory = SessionFactoryImpl.newInstance();
Map<String, String> parameter = new HashMap<String, String>();

// user credentials
parameter.put(SessionParameter.USER, "Otto");
parameter.put(SessionParameter.PASSWORD, "****");

// connection settings
parameter.put(SessionParameter.ATOMPUB_URL, "http://<host>:<port>/cmis/atom");
parameter.put(SessionParameter.BINDING_TYPE, BindingType.ATOMPUB.value());
parameter.put(SessionParameter.REPOSITORY_ID, "myRepository");

// create session
Session session = factory.createSession(parameter);

Web Services binding

// default factory implementation
SessionFactory factory = SessionFactoryImpl.newInstance();
Map<String, String> parameter = new HashMap<String, String>();

// user credentials
parameter.put(SessionParameter.USER, "Otto");
parameter.put(SessionParameter.PASSWORD, "****");

// connection settings
parameter.put(SessionParameter.BINDING_TYPE, BindingType.WEBSERVICES.value());
parameter.put(SessionParameter.WEBSERVICES_ACL_SERVICE, "http://<host>:<port>/cmis/services/ACLService?wsdl");
parameter.put(SessionParameter.WEBSERVICES_DISCOVERY_SERVICE, "http://<host>:<port>/cmis/services/DiscoveryService?wsdl");
parameter.put(SessionParameter.WEBSERVICES_MULTIFILING_SERVICE, "http://<host>:<port>/cmis/services/MultiFilingService?wsdl");
parameter.put(SessionParameter.WEBSERVICES_NAVIGATION_SERVICE, "http://<host>:<port>/cmis/services/NavigationService?wsdl");
parameter.put(SessionParameter.WEBSERVICES_OBJECT_SERVICE, "http://<host>:<port>/cmis/services/ObjectService?wsdl");
parameter.put(SessionParameter.WEBSERVICES_POLICY_SERVICE, "http://<host>:<port>/cmis/services/PolicyService?wsdl");
parameter.put(SessionParameter.WEBSERVICES_RELATIONSHIP_SERVICE, "http://<host>:<port>/cmis/services/RelationshipService?wsdl");
parameter.put(SessionParameter.WEBSERVICES_REPOSITORY_SERVICE, "http://<host>:<port>/cmis/services/RepositoryService?wsdl");
parameter.put(SessionParameter.WEBSERVICES_VERSIONING_SERVICE, "http://<host>:<port>/cmis/services/VersioningService?wsdl");
parameter.put(SessionParameter.REPOSITORY_ID, "myRepository");

// create session
Session session = factory.createSession(parameter);

Local binding

The local binding is specific to OpenCMIS. It lets an OpenCMIS client connect to an OpenCMIS server in the same JVM.

// default factory implementation
SessionFactory factory = SessionFactoryImpl.newInstance();
Map<String, String> parameter = new HashMap<String, String>();

// user credentials
parameter.put(SessionParameter.USER, "Otto");
parameter.put(SessionParameter.PASSWORD, "****");

// connection settings
parameter.put(SessionParameter.BINDING_TYPE, BindingType.LOCAL.value());
parameter.put(SessionParameter.LOCAL_FACTORY, "my.local.factory");
parameter.put(SessionParameter.REPOSITORY_ID, "myRepository");

// create session
Session session = factory.createSession(parameter);

Connect to the first repository

Some CMIS endpoints only provide one repository. In this case it is not necessary to provide its repository id.
The following code snippet gets the list of all available repositories and connects to the first one.

List<Repository> repositories = factory.getRepositories(parameter);
Session session = repositories.get(0).createSession();
