Mark Logic and MOSS connect
Mark Logic has released the MarkLogic Connector for Microsoft Office SharePoint Server (MOSS) 2007 and the MarkLogic Server. It automatically mirrors content from Office SharePoint Server 2007 to the MarkLogic XML server and pushes content at any stage of a business workflow. Once in MarkLogic, the company reports, customers can create rich, XML-based applications that make it easier to find and repurpose individual components of content to unlock greater value of information.
Mark Logic Connector for SharePoint includes:
Active library mirroring—The MarkLogic Connector for SharePoint transparently mirrors content from Office SharePoint Server 2007 document libraries to the MarkLogic Server. The Office SharePoint Server 2007 connector actively "listens" for changes to major versions of documents and automatically propagates those changes to MarkLogic, where they can be exploited in applications for content assembly and reuse. The library mirroring provides "set-and-forget" capabilities for bulk push operations with minimal administrator setup and no user intervention. That feature ensures consistent handling of numerous documents at any given time and can be customized to include various kinds of processing such as entity enrichment.
Workflow integration—The new MarkLogic Connector provides components for integrating directly within Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 workflows. Common workflow components, such as copying and deleting a document within MarkLogic, are easily incorporated as part of a workflow, for example, as an approval process. In addition, a component allows for integration of advanced XML processing within sophisticated business workflows for element and attribute-level processing. The Office SharePoint Server 2007 connector from Mark Logic integrates with Microsoft’s visual workflow design tools and can be used with or without library mirroring.
