Well, forgive me but I'm going to do some advertising :-)

I just have released yesterday the last version of jLibrary, my Eclipse
RCP application.

jLibrary 1.0beta4 is a great step forward in jLibrary history. During the
last four months, I have migrated the old hibernate based backend to a new
one based on Apache Jackrabbit (
This makes jLibrary finally JSR-170 compatible, as all the repositories
are JSR-170 compatibles. In addition, jLibrary has now better performance,
is now more robust and solid, and also less buggy :-) Apache Jackrabbit
gives also new features like the possibility to access jLibrary
repositories through other JSR-170 compatible products or throught a new
Web-DAV interface.

So, as you can imagine, there are several changes:

* Migrated the home-made backend to Apache Jacrabbit.
* Now, jLibrary has JSR-170 compatible repositories.
* Updated several libraries to more recent versions.
* Added Axis 1.3 compression support to web service endpoints, so messages
are supposed to be 90% smaller.
* Added SOAP+Attachments support for binary content transport which
increases performance considerably.
* Added a new WebDAV interface that allows you to access jLibrary through
a standard WebDAV client.
* Multiple database support with great flexibility. Possibility to store
contents on file system or database storage. Version storage decoupled
from standard storage and also very configurable.
* Text extraction filters provided by Jackrabbit ( In fact, jLibrary has
contributed some of them to Jackrabbit project ).
* The security perspective has been refactored and now is more intuitive,
with new editors for users, groups and roles, and with drag and drop
* Improved locking and version management systems thanks to Apache
* Added support for orderable nodes.
* Added new editors for repositories, directories and categories
* Experimental JCR browser that allows to browser Jackrabbit-based
repositories even if they are not created with jLibrary.
* New French translation
* New web page, and new templates.
* Fixed and improved English documentation, including the tutorials.
* And many more. Do not forget to take a look on the new and noteworthy
( to see more

To download jLibrary, you only have to go to the downloads page
( Currently, there are two
different versions: one for Windows platform, tested against Windows XP
and Windows2K, and another one for Linux platforms with GTK installed. The
recommended platform is Windows. This recommendation it's only because
Windows has been the platform used for developing and testing, and so I
suppose that jLibrary would be more stable in this platform.

VERY IMPORTANT: jLibrary needs a JDK 1.5 compatible to run

jLibrary user inerface is internationalized both in English, Spanish and
French. If you want to translate jLibrary user interface to another
language (only one resources file has to bee changed) contact with us
( well, you can also contact
if you want to help with the project :-)

After you have downloaded jLibrary, remember to follow the installation
instructions ( jLibrary
will run without any settings, but be careful, reading this information is
very important to do tasks as changing the jLibrary backend database.
There is also a new jlibrary server .WAR distribution that allows easy
deployment on your web container. You can see here instructions
( about how to install
the WAR based jLibrary server distribution.

Don't forget to this release new and noteworthy
( changes. Also
don't forget to read the documentation
(, and to read the tutorials
( (this is highly important).
Also, don't forget that there is an online help, a help presentation, an
internal help with search support, and a bunch of cheatsheets. All of this
will help you to use this tool.

And finally, don't forget that this is a beta version. jLibrary, as you
will see, is a very big project, and so it will have some little bugs. If
for any reason you find some of this bug make us know about it. By the
way, have I said that jLibrary is looking for collaborations? Yes, any
help would be good. Even for the most complex development things as for
the most simple things, like translation.

I really hope that you like jLibrary.
