Rapid RESTful Web Applications with Apache Sling and Jackrabbit

A session at JavaOne 2011

Thursday 6th October, 2011

3:30pm to 4:30pm (PST)

Rapidly designing, prototyping, and implementing Web applications is critical to most projects. However, many projects stall, stuck doing big up-front design related to front-end interface and databases. Apache Jackrabbit is an implementation of the Java Content Repository (JCR) standard that defines a flexible, hierarchical data storage mechanism. Apache Sling is a RESTful Web framework backed by a JCR instance. These two projects, combined, provide a platform for rapidly developing Web applications. By using Jackrabbit to store your application’s data, you can evolve your data architecture easily over time. Sling then provides a flexible, easily understood interface for manipulating the data in your JCR instance, using basic CRUD principles. Learn more in this session.
