Being completely new to CMS ( I knew what the acronym stood for ) does the book cater for complete novices or is some prior knowledge of CMS required?

Good luck with the book.

The book is about CMIS, not CMS

an open standard that defines an abstraction layer for controlling diverse document management systems and repositories using web protocols
-- source wikipedia Content Management Interoperability Services

In other words, it is a standard allowing us to share information between CMS.

Must see the first chapter of this book to understand more CMIS and its specification.

The book is intended for people who are completely new to the Content Management Interoperability Services (CMIS) standard. The standard defines a vendor-neutral, language independent way to work with rich content repositories. Those rich content repositories could be Content Management Systems, Document Management Systems, Records Management Systems, Digital Asset Management Systems, Web Content Management Systems, etc.

If you've never worked with systems like that, it's not a problem. We explain everything as we go along.

If you are a Java developer and you are writing applications (desktop, web, mobile--it doesn't really matter) that deal with a lot of files, and you need to manage those files in an open, standards-based way, you'll learn a lot from the book.
