You should have a basic familiarity with Experience Factory and be able to create and run models. You will also need to have access to a SharePoint 2010 or FileNet p8 Content Manager 5.0 CMIS repository in order to run the sample application.
The sample models provided in the attached zip file demonstrate how to build an application that accesses data from a CMIS repository. There are separate sets of models for SharePoint 2010 and FileNet p8 Content Manager 5.0, but there are not a lot of differences between these models. The differences are mostly related to the schemas which are generated for the different CMIS back-ends. If you don't have access to SharePoint 2010 or FileNet p8 Content Manager 5.0, there is a set of models for accessing Alfresco. The attached PDF document has information about how to access Alfresco's publicly available CMIS server.
Here's a screen shot of the sample application accessing a SharePoint 2010 CMIS back-end.
There are two files for in this sample. The cmis-sample.zip file is a WEF Zip Archive containing the models and other supporting files for the application. CmisDocumentAccess.pdf contains instructions for installing the sample, a brief overview of CMIS, documentation for using the CMIS Document Access builder, and a thorough description of the sample models.
