An open-source, federated content repository

ModeShape 3.0.0.Beta3 is available

The ModeShape community is proud and happy to announce the availability of 3.0.0.Beta3. All the artifacts are available in the JBoss Maven repository, and you can follow our instructions for using ModeShape in your Maven application. Or, download one of our distributions, including kits to install ModeShape as a service within JBoss AS7.1.1.Final or AS7.2 (which hasn’t yet been released, but you can build it from the source). Check out our documentationrelease notes, JavaDoc, and our code on GitHub; use our forums or IRC channel to ask questions, and log any issues in our JIRA.

This release is improved over Beta2 with:

  • an improved RESTful API with support for handling large files;
  • a new feature to backup repositories (even when they’re being used) and restore repositories to a previously backed-up state;
  • the ability to store large binary values in Infinispan, JDBC database, and MongoDB (in addition to the file system available in previous releases); and
  • a number of other bug fixes and improvements.

We’re also passing 99.8% of the JSR-283 TCK tests, with all of the same JCR features that were available in ModeShape 2.x. The 4 outstanding failures should be fixed by the next release.

One more word of note. We’re making great progress on the remaining issues that we want to fix before releasing 3.0.0.Final, and although we had been releasing betas every 2 weeks, we’re planning to release 3.0.0.Beta4 in 3 weeks. Hopefully by then we’ll have most of the remaining issues fixed, and will be closer to issuing Final.

Thanks to all our community members that have helped with ModeShape 3, whether it was giving our alpha and beta releases a try, asking questions in the forums, reporting issues, offering suggestions, contributing code, or all of the above. Well done, and keep up the great work!

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.
