Liferay provides a connector that allows adding an external Sharepoint repository as a folder to the Documents & Media of a site.
This story aims to improve the reliability and performance of this connector by using the SOAP protocol provided by Sharepoint and its CAML query language.
As stated in the comments of
LPS-40811, the current Sharepoint CMIS implementation does not follow the standard and is badly broken. Thus, we will use the Microsoft specific WS API to interact with Sharepoint and get rid of all the bugs and failures with the current connector.
