Connector for IBM FileNet enables communication between AEM forms and IBM FileNet. For additional background information, see “Connectors for ECM” in Services Reference.
In earlier releases, assets could be stored in an ECM repository. In this release, assets are stored in the AEM forms native repository and the Repository Provider services have been deprecated. The migration of assets from an ECM repository to the AEM forms repository is done when you perform an upgrade to AEM forms. For more information, see the AEM forms Upgrade guide for your application server.
