Day Submits Next Version of Content Repository Standard

Oct 04, 2005

Day Software, a provider of global content management and content infrastructure software, has announced that they have submitted version 2.0 of the Content Repository for Java Technology API (JSR 283) to the Java Community Process (JCP). JSR 283 is the next version of the JSR 170 standard, and is designed to reduce the risks of proprietary vendor lock-in by improving the interoperability between content repositories and applications.

Extensions to JSR 170 (Version 1.0) that are up for discussion by the Expert Group for version 2.0 include greater access control management, workspace and node-type management in addition to retention aspects of content or cross-repository aspects. The latest version provides improved interoperability within the content repository through the addition of new standardized node types like meta-information and internationalization.
