Alfresco WebScripts Solr API Repository Connector for Apache ManifoldCF

Building this connector

svn co http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/manifoldcf/trunk/ manifoldcf
cd manifoldcf
mvn clean install -DskipTests -Dmaven.test.skip
cd -
git clone https://github.com/maoo/alfresco-webscript-manifold-connector.git
cd alfresco-webscript-manifold-connector
mvn clean install -DskipTests -Dmaven.test.skip

Running Alfresco 4.2.c

cd alfresco-indexer-webscripts
mvn install -Pamp-to-war (advised MAVEN_OPTS="-Xms256m -Xmx2G -XX:PermSize=300m")
(will run on localhost:8080/alfresco-instance)

Install and run Manifold 1.1.1

curl http://archive.apache.org/dist/manifoldcf/apache-manifoldcf-1.1.1-bin.zip > manifold-bin-1.1.1.zip
unzip manifold-bin-1.1.1.zip
export MANIFOLD_HOME=$PWD/apache-manifoldcf-1.1.1
java -jar $MANIFOLD_HOME/example/start.jar

Install the Alfresco WebScripts Connector

Prerequisite: you need to have installed Apache Maven 3.0.4

For building and packaging the connector run the following command from the root folder of the project:

mvn clean install

Copy the conf folder into the manifold classpath

cp -Rf mcf-alfresco-webscript-connector/src/test/resources/conf $MANIFOLD_HOME/example
cp -Rf mcf-alfresco-webscript-connector/src/test/resources/alfrescoResources $MANIFOLD_HOME/example

Deploy and configure the Alfresco Webscript connector

cp mcf-alfresco-webscript-connector/target/mcf-alfresco-webscript-connector-1.1.1-jar-with-dependencies.jar $MANIFOLD_HOME/connector-lib

edit $MANIFOLD_HOME/connectors.xml and add this snippet:

<repositoryconnector
name="AlfrescoWebscript"
class="org.apache.manifoldcf.crawler.connectors.alfrescowebscripts.AlfrescoWebScriptsRepositoryConnector"/>

edit $MANIFOLD_HOME/logging.ini if you want to raise the default (WARN) Manifold log level

create a new conf folder in $MANIFOLD_HOME/example/lib

copy in the new conf folder all these files related to the keystore configuration of your Alfresco instance:

-ssl-keystore-passwords.properties
-ssl-truststore-passwords.properties
-ssl.repo.client.keystore
-ssl.repo.client.truststore
