Introducing Apache Jackrabbit

The past week at the ApacheCon has been a great opportunity to introduce the Apache Jackrabbit project to the Apache community. I've spoken with a number of people about the project, found areas of possible co-operation, and met with potential Jackrabbit users from various projects and companies. A very successful week.

The Media & Analyst Training tutorial on Tuesday and the Breaking Through the Noise: Visibility for your Open Source Project session on Thursday, both by Sally Khudairi, gave a lot of ideas about better introducing the project to a large audience. The first step in applying those ideas in practice was making the introductory paragraph on the Jackrabbit web site a bit more accessible to first-time visitors. The updated introduction is:
Apache Jackrabbit is a fully conforming implementation of the Content Repository for Java Technology API (JCR). A content repository is a hierarchical content store with support for structured and unstructured content, full text search, versioning, transactions, observation, and more. Typical applications that use content repositories include content management, document management, and records management systems.

I got scheduled for a Feather Cast interview with David Reid. The podcast is available as the Feather Cast Episode 17. I also gave two talks on Jackrabbit, one at the Incubator 15 minute talks (even though Jackrabbit already graduated) on Thursday and one at an ad-hoc press session on Friday. Check out my introductory Apache Jackrabbit slideshow.
