With the Alfresco show-stoppers now behind us, we’ve packaged plutext-server as an Alfresco Module Package (AMP). The idea is that in due course, it will be easy to deploy plutext-server into an existing Alfresco implementation. See Integrating plutext-server into Alfresco for details. Given that we’re going down the Alfresco road, we now also have a project on the Alfresco forge. Mostly, that will direct existing Alfresco users here.
At the moment, it is still too hard to try out plutext:
- You have to build your own plutext-server, because there is no web-based user self registration for our test server. This will change in the next fortnight.
- Building your own plutext-server isn’t too hard if you are a Java developer, but we’ll make that easier as well. We’re building a VMware appliance which you’ll be able to download, which contains a preconfigured development environment. Unless you are really keen, you may as well wait for that.
- Currently, you have to build a Word 2007 add-in to interact with the plutext server. Soon this will be a downloadable executable.
So that’s the agenda for the next couple of weeks. Cheers!
