Abhishek Kumar commented on CONNECTORS-1491:

Hi Piergiorgio,

I'm Abhishek Kumar. I am currently pursuing Master's degree in Computer 
Applications from BIT Mesra, Ranchi, India.

I've worked with Azure Java SDK as well as AWS SDK and as far as I have I 
understood, we are going to develop a connector for Azure storage for migrating 
data/contents from different databases and provide a cross platform support to 
migrate data. Kindly correct me, If I've understood any part of it wrong.


This topic is fascinating me and I would definitely like to contribute to it as 
a GSOC-2018 project.

Thanks :)

> To discuss this or other ideas with your potential mentor from the Apache 
> ManifoldCF project, sign up and post to the dev@manifoldcf.apache.org list, 
> including "[GSOC]" in the subject. You may also comment on this Jira issue if 
> you have created an account. 
> We would like to extend the Content Migration capabilities adding Azure 
> Storage as a new output connector for importing contents from one or more 
> repositories supported by ManifoldCF. In this way we will help developers on 
> migrating contents from different data sources on Azure Storage.
> You will be involved in the development of the following tasks, you will 
> learn how to:
>  * Write the connector implementation
>  * Implement unit tests
>  * Build all the integration tests for testing the connector inside the 
> framework
>  * Write the documentation for this connector
> You will find a technical description about all the references to the Azure 
> Java SDK on an existing issue on our JIRA:
> https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CONNECTORS-1441
> We have a complete documentation on how to implement an Output Connector:
> [https://manifoldcf.apache.org/release/release-2.9.1/en_US/writing-output-connectors.html]
> Take a look at our book to understand better the framework and how to 
> implement connectors:
