eXo Java Content Repository and ECM 1.0 Released

| by Floyd Marinescu on Jul 27, 2006. Estimated reading time: 1 minute |
Exo and Objectweb have announced the release of their Java Content Repository  JCR 1.0 open source product (an implementation of JSR 170) as well as ECM (Enterprise Content Management) 1.0 tools, part of the eXo portal platform which also includes a JSR 168 compliant portal server.

The eXo JCR 1.0
is an implementation of the JSR 170 specification that includes all the required functionalities (level 1, 2 and all optional features) such as document definition, searching capabilities, import/export functionalities, locking, versioning and many more. The default implementation is based on a relational database implementation and has been tested on major products such as Oracle, DB2, SQLServer, MySQL. It supports XA transactions.

The eXo ECM 1.0
 provides tools on top of the Portal and JCR content store to enable more document management functionalities such as WebDAV interaction, Publication Validation Workflow with delegation support, document backup, and a template mechanism to create and visualize structured documents. The new 'Action' concept allows Business Process, Drools Rules or Groovy Scripts to be launched or executed when documents are read, added or removed from a dedicated JCR workspace.

eXo Platform joined ObjectWeb's open source portfolio in November 2004. Exo also includes a JSR 168 compliant portal server. The new eXo JCR and ECM projects are already being used in production on Italy's Venice District news portal   InfoQ also runs on a JSR 170 repository (Apache Jackrabbit/Magnolia).

great to see a new JCR implementation by Alex Popescu

It is great to see a new open source JCR implementation, though I haven't been able to find a reference about the licensing of the eXo JCR implementation. However, congrats! I am sure I will check it soon ;-].

Re: great to see a new JCR implementation by Floyd Marinescu

I'm very curious about what a side by side comparison between the different JCR's available on the market might look like.

Re: great to see a new JCR implementation by Alex Popescu

As far as I know, at this moment there would be 4 JCR implementations available: Jackrabbit, CRX, eXo and Alfredo. What kind of comparison do you have in mind?
