IBM® Content Manager, Version 8.4.1 supports an event infrastructure that enables the integration of external applications. A set of message formats are published for the event messages generated from an event monitor. The general integration for an external application is made possible by using a custom event handler. Because the event message informs the custom event handler of the content operations in the repository, the custom event handler can interact with external applications based on the content-aware business logic. This article provides an overview of the event framework and uses an example e-mail application to illustrate how to write a custom event handler for external application integration.
