RESTful Atompub Binding
This binding is based upon the Atom (RFC4287) and Atom Publishing Protocol (RFC5023). In this binding, clients interact with the repository by first acquiring its service document. Clients choose a CMIS collection, and access the repository by following the references in the returned documents.
CMIS extends the Atom and AtomPub documents utilizing the Atom and AtomPub extension mechanism. CMIS also defines link tags to specify additional resources related to the requested resource. Where specified, the Files CMIS API provides CMIS extensions to expose application function.
