      Description

      Taking a look at the Alfresco roadmap, it seems that during the next 18 months the CML SOAP API will not be supported anymore:

      http://wiki.alfresco.com/wiki/Product_Roadmap#End-of-life_3

      The history of this connector is not happy, during the first step I asked to some Alfresco guys about the life of the SOAP API and I was assured that it would not be finished.

      Anyway this is not the best API exposed by Alfresco, for many reasons developers should use the REST API as their first choice.

      The SOAP API was the only one API that allows to invoke Lucene queries without implementing new customizations/extensions on Alfresco.
      Now we have an official confirmation that the life of this SOAP API ends during the end of this year and the begin of the next one.

      My idea is to do a brainstorming with some Alfresco guys to understand together which APIs we should use to reimplement the connector.

      I would like to use the current HTTP services without installing nothing on the Alfresco side. But I have to check with them if this solution is feasible.

      I hope to have good news soon.
