JSR 283 – Content Repository API version 2.0 Approved
JSR 283 Content Repository for Java Technology API version 2.0 has been approved.
The aim is to produce a content repository API that provides an implementation independent way to access content bi-directionally on a granular level.
A content repository is a high-level information management system that is a superset of traditional data repositories. A content repository implements content services such as: author based versioning, full textual searching, fine grained access control, content categorization and content event monitoring. It is these content services that differentiate a content repository from a data repository. Many of today?s (web) applications interact with content repositories in various ways. This API proposes that content repositories have a dedicated, standard way of interaction with applications that deal with content. This API will focus on transactional read/write access, binary content (stream operations), textual content, full-text searching, filtering, observation, versioning, handling of hard and soft structured content.
