An open-source, federated content repository

Relicensing ModeShape 4.0 under ASL2.0

A month ago I proposed that we relicense ModeShape under the Apache Software License (ASL) 2.0 starting with the first 4.0 release of ModeShape. To date the reactions have been nothing but favorable, so we’re going to proceed down this road.

Please see the discussion thread for more details and to add any of your own opinions.

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.
