Removing the middle man: WebCMIS runs in your browser and connects directly to CMIS

Tired of the unflexible Web interface you use all day to work on your documents repository?

Then try WebCMIS! (login:admin password:admin)

WebCMIS does not require any additional server: it runs in your Web browser, and communicates directly with any CMIS document management server (Alfresco, Nuxeo, SharePoint, Documentum, FileNet, Nemakiware, etc).

Bypassing the Web UI app server means better security (one less attack vector), faster access, and reduced hosting costs.

I created WebCMIS as an showcase for the new Browser Binding feature of CMIS 1.1, and have made it Open Source. It is rudimentary right now, but I hope it will grow into a very useful tool.
