JSR 170 approved

Content Repository Standard Approved by JCP Executive Committee.
Day Software announced that the JSR 170 Content Repository for Java
Technology API has been approved by an industry expert group of the
major players in content management. JSR 170, which has been developed
under the Java Community Process (JCP) program, is designed to lessen
the risks of proprietary vendor lock-in by improving the
interoperability between content repositories and applications. This
new standard helps companies manage content across large-scale
enterprises. Day’s CTO, David Nuescheler, has lead the JSR 170
initiative by acting as the specification lead since its inception.
Apache, BEA Systems, IBM, Oracle, and SAP amongst many others all serve
as members of expert group for JSR 170. Other industry participants
include Documentum Inc., Filenet, and Vignette. http://jcp.org [Gilbane Report News]
