Ephesoft + Dropbox: What about importing?

My previous blog post was explaining how to create an export plugin, focused on Dropbox. After that, I started to think about importing. An import module is not so easy. The custom workflow management feature proposed by Ephesoft starts effectively after the import. Howevere, there is different ways of importing documents into Ephesoft, for example by email or using CMIS. And Ephesoft provides a CMIS import feature, but strictly speaking, it's not really a module.  So, we are going to find how to do an import feature from Dropbox.

Create a Dropbox export plugin

After my previous blog post about how to create an Ephesoft plugin, I wanted to do the same exercise from scratch with another plugin. So, I decided to create a plugin to export documents to Dropbox. So, I re-created the same structure of my other project and I cleaned all context files and Java classes. But, I didn't really started from scracth, I used the CMIS export plugin as template.
