Article: David Nuescheler on JCR and REST

In a new InfoQ interview, Day CTO and JCR Spec Lead David Nuescheler talks to Stefan Tilkov about the benefits of JCR, the Java Content Repository standard, the difference between an API such as Atom/Atom Publishing protocol and JCR, JCR's connection to REST, and Apache Sling, a new kind of Web framework.
