 Welcome to Apache Jackrabbit  <http://jackrabbit.apache.org/>
 =============================================================
 
+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.
+
+Version 1.0 of the JCR API was specified by the Java Specification
+Request 170 (JSR 170, http://jcp.org/en/jsr/detail?id=170) and work
+on the JCR version 2.0 has begun in JSR 283.
+
+Apache Jackrabbit is a project of the Apache Software Foundation.
