First Release of Apache Sling: A JCR based web framework


Apache Sling is a web framework that uses a Java Content Repository, such as Apache Jackrabbit, to store and manage content.

Sling applications use either scripts or Java servlets, selected based on simple name conventions, to process HTTP requests in a RESTful way.

As the first web framework dedicated to JSR-170 Java Content Repositories, Sling makes it very simple to implement simple applications, while providing an enterprise-level framework for more complex applications.

Bertrand Delacretaz and David Nuescheler created a sample site like TSS in Sling in 10 minutes, live on stage at the Jazoon conference. You See the sample here

Bertrand Delacretaz has written a tutorial which helps in getting started with the sling launchpad. the tutorial explains how to:

  1. get the launchpad
  2. build the launchpad
  3. start the launchpad
  4. create some content
  5. Render content using server-side java script

And some addition examples of how to create the node with uniqueue path,  add page header with sling.include

there are good tutorials on also

I have heard an employee of day software saying that is built on sling
