An open-source, federated content repository

ModeShape 3.0.0.Alpha6 is available

Well, we thought the next release was going to be a beta release, but we’ve had a lot of great feedback fixed quite a few important issues with Alpha5 and wanted to get these fixes out as quickly as possible. So just two weeks after Alpha5 we’ve released 3.0.0.Alpha6 with the following:

  • Fixes to the ModeShape kit for AS7.1 to correct sequencers and persistence issues
  • Fixes for participating in JTA transactions
  • The WebDAV service is back
  • The local and remote JDBC drivers, which applications can use to issue JCR-SQL2 queries and get database metadata through the JDBC API
  • The “JcrEngine” class was renamed “ModeShapeEngine” (most applications don’t use this)
  • Several breaking changes were made to the way sequencers and other components are specified in the JSON configurations
  • ModeShape now passes 97% (1855/1905) of the unofficial (but corrected) TCK unit tests
  • About a dozen other fixes and improvements

See the release notes for details. The release artifacts are available in the JBoss Maven repository, and our examples and documentation has been updated.

If you’ve been working with the previous Alpha releases, we strongly suggest you upgrade to this Alpha as soon as possible and let us know via IRC or our forums if you run into any issues. And then get ready for 3.0.0.Beta1 in the next few weeks as soon as we finish full-text searching and shareable nodes.

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.
