List of CMIS Clients – Updated!

eXo Platform Blog

A while ago, we compiled and published a list of existing CMIS clients and libraries. Today, we thought it would be nice to update that resource.

If you are developing an application that needs to interact with a CMIS server, you might want to reuse an existing client library. We’ve compiled a list of available libraries and clients. Most of them are open source.
