An open-source, federated content repository

ModeShape 1.2 adds JCR-SQL and lots of fixes and improvements

I’m very pleased to announce that ModeShape 1.2 is now available for download and in the new JBoss Maven repository. If you haven’t already switched your Maven settings to this new repository, be sure to do so.

This release brings support for JCR-SQL query language and a number of fixes and improvements. This means that ModeShape implements all of the JCR 1.0 Level 1 and Level 2 features plus the optional locking, observation, query, and versioning features. And, there’s no better time to switch from those older and crustier JCR implementations that can’t do federation or use a variety of back-end content stores (like Infinispan).

For details on the changes in this release, see our release notes. And, as usual, we’ve updated our Getting Started and Reference Guides as well as our JavaDoc. If you have any questions, please ask. And we’re always interested in new contributors, so if you’re interested please get involved.

Many kudos to the ModeShape community of users and contributors. You guys rock!

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.
