The ODMA Provider

Preface

The ODMA Content Provider (OCP) implements a Content Provider for the Universal Content Broker (UCB). It provides access to a document structure stored in a Document Management System (DMS).

OCP Content

The OCP Content provides two types of content; the document and the Root Folder.

  1. The document Content corresponds to a document stored in the DMS.

  2. The Root Folder exists at any time and is used to show all documents avaible at that time. All other OCP contents are children of this folder. The OCP Root Folder can only contain OCP Documents. It has the URL „vnd.sun.star.odma:/“.





Creation of new OCP Contents

OCP Folders implement the interface XContentCreator. OCP Root Folder supports the command „insert“. That's why the OCP Root Folder can create new OCP Streams. To create a new OCP Streams:

  1. Let the root folder create a new content by calling its createNewContent-method. The content type to use for new streams is application/vnd.sun.star.odma.

  2. Set a title at the new stream. ( Let the new child execute a setPropertyValues – command, which sets at least the property „Title“ to a non-empty value ).

  3. Other properties which may be set are

  1. Let the new child ( not the parent! ) execute the command „transfer“. This will commit the creation process. You need to supply the implementation of an XInputStream with the command's parameters, that provides access to the stream data.

URL Scheme for OCP Contents

Each OCP content has an identifier corresponding to the following scheme:

vnd.sun.star.odma:/<name>

where <name> is the DocumentID given by the DMS.

Examples:

vnd.sun.star.odma:/ ( The URL of the OCP Root Folder )

vnd.sun.star.odma:/ a document id given by the DMS

vnd.sun.star.odma:/::ODMA\DMS_ID\DM_SPECIFIC_INFO

To enable ODMA the following basic macro has to executed to insert the settings needed in the Configuration.
