JSR 283 Spec Download

Content Repository for Java Technology API 2.0 was released in September 2009.

What's New in v2.0?

Since this JSR represents an enhancement of JSR-170, the same general goals apply to this JSR as to JSR-170.

In particular, the following functional areas have been reviewed by the expert group and found it's way into the 2.0 specification:

  • Completely re-organized and clarified Specification: separate Content Repository model section and removed a lot of the Java Language dependency
  • A new Abstract Query Model with a Java binding and revamped result-set to allow for multiple nodes (aka Joins)
  • Extended permission support with ACL and Access Control Policies
  • Support for interaction with Records Management systems. Allows setting and introspection of Retention Policies and Legal Holds
  • Simplified Versioning Model to allow for ease of adoption.
  • Better BPM support - allows to express and introspect Lifecycle status and transitions.
  • Standardized way of registering new and modify registered Nodetypes
  • New properties and nodetypes - such as mix:title, mix:created, mix:language, nt:address..
  • Standardized way of create and remove workspaces
  • Improved graph representation - Multi-filing. Nodes can have multiple parents.
  • Journalling Observation with "delta since" support. What changed since I last checked?
