I have been given the task to read data from SAROS Document Manger Mezzanine and transfer it to IBM Content Manager. But I have no idea how to read the data from Saros Document Manager. I have read that there are API to do this task, but till now I have not been able to find any such resource on the internet.

Could anyone help me in this regards.

The first point of inquiry would be the documentation of these two products, to see if either of them supports a Java API for import/export.

Since this forum is about Sun Java APIs, I am going to move the thread to Other Java Products and Servers. Please find it there and continue the discussion.

I have not been able to find any such documentation regarding SAROS on the internet.

If anyone has such info, then please do let me know.

It didn't take me long to findthis link. The document confirms what you said, namely

"Unfortunately, there is very little online information to link to about Mezzanine, as it really predates the advent of the popular Web. Its technical audience has traditionally been large organizations, hence the primary mode of information transfer has always been classes given by Saros/FileNET or by third parties, and no technical information is really accessible online."

So I would suggest looking for printed documentation or asking your sales person. I wouldn't really expect to find a Java API given the age and obsoleteness of the product.

Thanks Paul for the reply. Yes, its really hard to find any information about SAROS on the internet. I will try to get some documentation from the company which is still working on SAROS.

I agree. Here's the link:
