An open-source, federated content repository

ModeShape 1.0.0.Final

I’m very happy to announce that ModeShape 1.0.0.Final is now available. With this release, ModeShape now implements all JCR Level 1 and Level 2 features and the optional locking and observation features! [1] And as with our 1.0.0.Beta1 release, ModeShape supports querying repository content using the JCR-SQL2 query language defined by the JSR-283 specification.

This release also includes quite a few fixes and minor improvements. For example, our JARs are also now OSGi compliant, making it easier to deploy ModeShape into an OSGi-compliant container.

As usual, it’s in the JBoss Maven repository and in our project’s downloads area. Of course, our Getting Started guide and Reference Guide are great places to see. And we always have JavaDocs and release notes.

Last but not least, a huge thank you to our fantastic community of users and contributors, for all the help with testing, fixing issues, and implementing these features. You guys all rock!

[1] Note that ModeShape has not yet been certified as being compliant with JCR 1.0, but we plan on attaining this certification in the very near future.

ModeShape is

a lightweight, fast, pluggable, open-source JCR repository that federates and unifies content from multiple systems, including files systems, databases, data grids, other repositories, etc.

Use the JCR API to access the information you already have, or use it like a conventional JCR system (just with more ways to persist your content).

ModeShape used to be 'JBoss DNA'. It's the same project, same community, same license, and same software.
