Managing data for holiday farms in Sardinia with OpenCms

Track: Showcase
Speaker: Antonio Cordeddu (Coranto Informatica)


AgriturismoIchnos - - is a web site that contains data from around 800 holiday farms of Sardinia (Italy). The data is maintained in a separate database and imported to OpenCms using a generic solution developed for this project.

This session did explain our generic solution for the import of data to OpenCms from external database sources. This is done in collaboration with the software Talend Open Studio. Talend Open Studio is an open source solution for data integration.

Antonio did show how to perform a data import to OpenCms without writing any line of code through using the followings steps:

  • creation of the content definition xsd in OpenCms;
  • configuration of the scheme in Talend Open Studio;
  • creation of the job on Talend Open Studio;
  • data export from the source through Talend Open Studio;
  • data import in OpenCms.
