 <h2 class="underlined_10">Description</h2>
 <div class="section">
 <p>The Jackrabbit Project has been formed to develop an open source implementation
of the Content Repository for Java Technology API (JCR), being specified within the Java Community
Process as <a class="external" href="http://www.jcp.org/en/jsr/detail?id=170">JSR-170</a>.
<a class="external" href="http://www.day.com/">Day Software</a>, the JSR-170 specification
lead, has licensed an initial implementation of the JCR reference implementation for use as
seed code for this project.  JCR specifies an API for application developers (and application
frameworks) to use for interaction with modern content repositories -- content management
systems that provide content services such as versioning, transactions, indexing, workflow,
etc. </p>
-<p>Jackrabbit's implementation began as a proposal within the <a class="external"
href="http://jakarta.apache.org/slide/index.html">Jakarta Slide</a>project, but has
since attracted interest from multiple projects with the  <a href="http://www.apache.org/">Apache
Software Foundation</a>, including Slide, Cocoon, Lenya, XML Indexing, Axion, and Derby.
We are also looking at integration with projects such as Beehive, Maven, and Portals. </p>
-<p>The purpose of this incubation period is to attract additional contributors from
other Apache projects and from the various JSR-170 expert group companies, learn the Apache
way of doing things, and allow the developers to focus on this interface/implementation rather
than all of the existing projects that might want to use it.  We hope to improve collaboration
on the code base by moving all of the active developers and authors to Apache, bring in as
many of the Apache veterans as wish to get involved, and open it up to all of the 22 expert
group companies.  Development of the JCR RI and TCK will occur in this project -- Day Software
plans to continue participation in Jackrabbit and use the code in the official (binary) RI
and TCK releases, allowing developers to beta test against the open source versions as well
as the official versions. </p>

+<p>Jackrabbit is doing well as a project and is attracting interest both within other
Apache projects (Lenya and Graffito in particular) as well as from new folks in the Java community.
We added two new committers, Jukka Zitting and Dominique Pfister, and have received sustained
contributions from Serge Huber, Edgar Poce, Angela Schreiber, Felix Meschberger, and others.

+<p>Jackrabbit's only problem right now is continued reliance on JCP EG private discussions
due to the unfinished nature of the JSR 170 Content Repository for Java Technology API.  JSR
170 is expected to be submitted for final draft status in early May, after which all of the
discussion can be moved to Apache lists. We anticipate graduating from Incubator sometime
soon after that. </p>
