An open-source, federated content repository

Introduction to ModeShape 4 on WildFly

Francesco Marchioni has written two articles that show just how easy it is to get started with ModeShape 4 on WildFly and to use JavaEE to very quickly create a simple web application to create and access content.

The first article, “NoSQL Data storage with ModeShape 4“, shows exactly how to install ModeShape 4 into an existing (or new) WildFly 8 server.

The second article, “ModeShape 4 in action“, walks through deploying a simple Web application to insert new nodes into Modeshape JCR repository and display them with a nice Primefaces tree view.

Thanks, Francesco, for providing these excellent and very useful articles!

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.
