Is there any way to "test drive" an Alfresco web service?

Hi gain, Mr. Shariff -

I noticed in one of your replies that Alfresco supports Web Services, and this link has some sample code (in different languages, including Java):
http://wiki.alfresco.com/wiki/Alfresco_Content_Management_Web_Services

Is there a "mock server" anywhere (perhaps even on the Alfresco site) I could use to create a couple of test clients and receive some "live responses"?

Thank you in advance .. Paul Santa Maria

hi -

Thank you. It looks like it might be *exactly* what I'm looking for!

The link just hangs when I try it in my browser (I'll try it again later - maybe it's just down at the moment). But a google search on that URL shows this: <blockquote>quote:

<a href="http://www.alfresco.com/products/ecm/hostedtrials/<hr rel="nofollow"></blockquote>" target="_blank">www.alfresco.com/products/ecm/hostedtrials/

That certainly sounds like a "Bingo". Thank you again!

Thanks for the reply.

The best thing I would recommend is to install on your local machine and play with it. Download the tomcat version which is bundled to use Hypersonic SQL. You do not need any other software to be installed to run Alfresco. This installation option is good for testing use only.

It takes about 5 minutes to install it on your localbox. You can uninstall it once you are done with it.

This way you can keep all your sample spaces, documents, business rules, transformations etc till you complete your test run or Proof of Concept.
