sample calls and getObjectByPath

Dear all,

I am a beginner with CMIS and mobile documents and am currently trying to connect to mobile docs using a custom client. We are using the browser binding and I am having a hard time to figure out some of the calls. Sometimes sample calls exist in the official cmis documentation but sometimes they don't. In the SAP documentation I also don't really find sample request or response messages. Am I missing something or is this kind of documentation simple non existent? Would be so much easier to have it!

Especially I am trying to call the getObjectByPath method.

Has anybody called this method successfully and can tell me how to access it for "my documents" and "share" respositories?

I have tried to call it like this: for "my documents" where I want to access the meta information of folder2 which is located under root/folder1/ . All I am getting back is the root folder though.

Also without the userId its returning me the same information about the root folder of my repository.

Any hints would be appreciated.

    Hi Steve,

    your request should look something like:<repositoryId>/root/<userId>/folder1/folder2?cmisselector=object

    Which cmis library are you using for your custom client?

    Best regards,
