Hi,
I want to know if we can have custom content types in Alfresco. For eg can we have a custom type with custom properties? Like pdf type or video types.

Also currently we can save new content only in either, html/plain text/xml format. Can we extend Alfresco to save file with different extension? for eg. .java


Regards,
Paras

You can store any kind of document in Alfresco which will be indexed and full text searchable.

You can define custom content type like LoanApplication which can have custom properties say.. ApplicationNumber, ApplicantName, Address etc.....

You can save any type of file in Alfresco. It is not limited to text files (HTML, TEXT etc).

Alfresco supports all types of mime-types to be stored in the repository and treats them the same.

You can extend the content types to have more meta-data (properties), business rules, transformations etc.

I would recommend you to download and try with various content types..... I am sure you will like it.
