Alfresco Solr: enable search of special characters

Alfresco’s out of the box search engine Solr is configured in a way that searching of special characters is disabled by default. So, for instance, if you would like to find all documents in a system containing “c++” string then you may get tons (depending on the uploaded documents amount) of results that contain “C”-character without “++”-signs in its name and content: document content Fusce dapibus, tellus ac cursus commodo, search key c++, results “Fusce”, “ac”, “cursus”, “commodo”. In order to configure the correct search behavior please follow down to read current post.

Alfresco: extend Share javascript component

There is very common task that many developers face during Alfresco Share customization – how to extend client side javascript of a Share component. We all know that Alfresco combines for a component both server side javascript as well as a client side JS. For the first case Alfresco provides Module extension approach to alter server side JS and for the second case – the answer is not so clear. Sure we can modify core JS files directly on a web server, but it’s a bad practice since they can be later overwritten during Alfresco update, so it’s better to use extensions keeping changes in separate files. In this article we’ll take as an example the core Discussions Dashlet and then modify its client side javascript code.

Alfresco CAD (dxf, dwg) preview support

Hey there! Recently I got a chance to implement CAD format (DXF, DWG) support within Alfresco Share 5.0 so users could preview engineering documents. What’s an Alfresco previewer? The main concept lying behind it is to convert all variety of complex formats (doc, excel, txt, etc.) to a single one – PDF which is then can be rendered by Alfresco previewer. To handle word/excel/other conversion OpenOffice is used, to support DXF and DWG we need to find an appropriate CAD to PDF converter. To do this I will take a look at existing converters, evaluate them and show how to inject one of them to Alfresco to provide the preview of engineering drawings. This solution will work on Alfresco 5 (4th should also be fine) on Windows and Linux.
