I want to do something fairly standard, I hope. I am completely new to DotCMS, but I would like to get to my needs fairly simply.
My client has stored info. in DotCMS as the backend for a specific application. This backend is indeed what I want to use for another application. Before utilizing this same backend for the new application (using REST API calls, as assumed to be the best way to do this from a separate Java application?), I want to be able to, using the DOTCMS GUI, which I have access to, search and find a specific URL to an external application, Excel spreadsheet (artifact), and a specific code snippet. So, the question is what areas in DOTCMS can I use to store this information and easily find it:
1) First using the DOTCMS GUI so I can demonstrate to my client that DOTCMS will actually serve our purpose in this regard.
2) And then whether the REST API call from the Java app is the best way to do this or is there another better way like Velocity, etc. Flexibility and future proofing for changes needs consideration.
