Day Software Releases Beta Java Content Repository Extreme

Developed On 100% Java, J2EE Architecture

Day Software announced the release of the beta version of its Java Content Repository Extreme (CRX) to the industry. CRX is the first commercially available product that has been developed completely on an enterprise-class, 100% Java, J2EE architecture.

CRX makes high value enterprise content easily accessible for any application. CRX allows for the storage, retrieval and management of content across large-scale enterprises. As the first fully standard compliant content repository, CRX protects technology investment in content and applications and enables companies to create a content infrastructure that is future-proof and sustainable.

"As the leader of the global expert group that developed the new standard for enterprise content we are uniquely positioned to make this technology commercially available to the industry," said Michael Moppert, CEO of Day Software. "The standard already has the support of major technology vendors such as IBM, Oracle, HP, Sun and many others. We believe that CRX has substantial market potential as the industry's first commercially available product that fully implements the new standard. We are excited to see large U.S. software vendors to be among the first companies to participate in our Beta program and believe that such partnerships will open substantial new revenue opportunities for Day."

Industry analysts such as Gartner expect that new, standards based repository technologies, such as Day's Content Repository Extreme CRX, hold the best promise for eliminating the information silos created by application-specific databases and proprietary storage systems. Content management systems based on the CRX, such as Day's Communique, will be able to manage all of the content within all of the applications that make use of the repository, thus unifying information access, workflow, and presentation across the entire enterprise.

Furthermore, CRX implements the complete feature set that is specified through the JSR-170 specification. Day's CRX also provides a number of useful tools beyond the specification that help to create and maintain repositories. A new Content Explorer enables repository browsing. It allows creating, deleting and editing Nodes or Properties. With the Content Explorer, you get a user-friendly interface to view and administer your repository structure and content.

Other additional content tools include a loader and zipper. Content Loader is a utility to import content into the repository. For XML files an AutoExpand feature allows to expand your XML data into the repository target structure. Content Zipper can be used to export content into XML or ZIP format. In this way, content can be made available for other use or can be transferred made available to other systems.
