Access KMC remotely?

I wonder whether it is possible to access KMC functionality, say for retrieving a document stored in the repository, for a J2EE application running on a J2EE Engine cluster different from the one where the KMC application is installed. I searched the documentation and was not able to find any RMI or IDL interfaces. Should it really be necessary to install KMC together with each application that uses KMC?

    You could do that by using HTTP/WebDAV (that's what it's for...).

    No, Karsten, this article also assumes that the client application lives on the same application server instance as the KM application. Thanks for your attention.

    • Hi Jakob,

      first, we should clarify some things.

      KMC is an add on for EP. So let's call it part of the irj application. There is no API remote access implemented, because it's part of a - more or less closed - application.

      Anyhow, there are different possibilities to access KM remotely. Just on the document level, WebDAV has been mentioned. But it seems that you have the need for a functional access?!

      To make a big thing out of it, you could implement an EJB on the J2EE server where KM is running on - now you have standardized remote access (client - EJB) as well as local access (EJB - KM). And you're done.

      On the other hand, this is maybe overdoing. Alternatively you could implement a portal service and create a web service from this. Also using standard technologies, even if not based on RMI.

      For each of the functional access possibilities, you probably will have to care about authentication, for this is the base of all handling within KM.

      Hope it helps
