IBM to Support Content Repository Standard

  • 28-May-2004

IBM reportedly plans to support draft Java standard "JSR-170" across all its systems. JSR-170 specifies a standard Java API to access content repositories independent of implementation, which could be very useful for enterprise content integration and more generally should provide for better separation between content management functions and underlying repositories. That's good for services-oriented architectures, among other benefits. Interestingly, today's announcement came not from IBM, but from CMS vendor Day (citing a German IT magazine); Day leads the charge on JSR-170. Other CMS and database vendors also participate, but have been slower to declare support, perhaps because the standard still remains under public review...
