Episode 63. JCR (Java Content Repository) It is a Document Database before Document Databases were cool!
The Java Content Repository (JSR-170 and JSR-283) have been around for a while. For those who don't know it's an actual way of managing content (or assets, or text, or images, or a catalog). Its use can be almost anything, and yet, we didn't know we had it! The best part? It's a JSR so not just that there are different, compatible implementations, but the underlying storage can be changed in a jiffy. Want to store as files in the filesystem, done. How about a Database? also done. How about using something that the cool kids use like Mongo? It Got you covered man! (or Woman!)
