Subject [ANN] New Release of Apache Sling 5
Date Thu, 14 May 2009 09:41:22 GMT
Bringing Back the Fun - Reloaded

Apache Sling brings back the fun to Java developers and makes the
life of a web developer much easier. It combines current state of
the art technologies and methods like OSGi, REST, scripting, and JCR.

The main focus of Sling deals with the important task of
bringing your content into the web and providing a plattform to
manage/update the content in a REST style.

Sling is built into OSGi bundles and therefore benefits from all
advantages of OSGi. On the development side a scripting layer (using
Apache BSF) allows to use any scripting language with Sling (of course
you can use plain old Java, too). And on top of this, Sling helps in
developing an application in a RESTful way.

As the first web framework dedicated to JSR-170 Java Content
Repositories, Sling makes it very simple to implement simple
applications, while providing an enterprise-level framework for more
complex applications. Underneath the covers Apache Jackrabbit is
used for the repository implementation.

Download the new release, Apache Sling 5, today and give it a try!

Apache Sling currently comes in four flavors:
- A standalone application (a jar containing everything to get started
with Sling)
- A web application (just drop this into your favorite web container)
- The full source package (interested in reading the source?)
- Maven Artifacts (available through the Apache Incubator Repository)
