Welcome to Apache Jackrabbit  <>

Apache Jackrabbit is a fully conforming implementation of the

observation, and more. Typical applications that use content
repositories include content management, document management,
and records management systems.

Version 1.0 of the JCR API was specified by the Java Specification
Request 170 (JSR 170, and work
on the JCR version 2.0 has begun in JSR 283.

Apache Jackrabbit is a project of the Apache Software Foundation.
