Nuxeo introduction to ecr at the NYC Java meetup, April 2011

  1. 1. April NYC Java Meetup Introducing the Eclipse Enterprise Content Repository Project Roland Benedetti - V.P. ProductsTuesday, April 19, 2011
  2. 2. Nuxeo, who we are • Vendor of an open source software platform in the field of Enterprise Content Management • Love to create great software, fond of modularity, started to use OSGi 4 years ago to create server- side enterprise software... • 10 years old, 500+ customers, 5000+ installations • Sells support & maintenance subscription and added value software provided as a service • Dual HQ Paris & Boston, offices in San Francisco 2Tuesday, April 19, 2011
  3. 3. 3Tuesday, April 19, 2011
  4. 4. A bit of history  Project initiated in 2005, now solid and mature  A complex software platform made of  186+ bundles, 215+ extension points  A platform that scales and provides high performance  Using an extension point model to make it very flexible  Easy to contribute new services  Easy to customize the default application (including UI and business logic)  Running virtually everywhere  JBoss AS - as an EAR application  Tomcat - as a WAR application  Equinox - as an OSGi application (and Virgo very soon) 4Tuesday, April 19, 2011
  5. 5. The Eclipse ECR Project  Proposal to Contribute the Content Repository at the core of the Nuxeo Enterprise Platform as an Eclipse Runtime Project  Why?  OSGi server side has made significant progress in the Eclipse RT opening doors for collaborations  CMIS as a standard for Content Interoperability has reached maturity  Because it is the best way to spread infrastructure technology and team with other on developing it! 5Tuesday, April 19, 2011
  6. 6. What is a Content Repository? • It is a Middleware between Applications and Storage sub-systems • It does not replace either but avoid recoding interactions between the two • It is a persistence service for content/data • It provides a high level of abstraction (stop caring about storage details, focus on the app domain and its objects) 6Tuesday, April 19, 2011
  7. 7. What a Content Repository is not? • Not a CMS (WCM, ECM, ...) • A CMS is one application on top of a Content Repository • Not an ORM • Higher abstraction level, and not that granular, don’t think in SQL terms • Not a filesystem • If all you have is a filesystem, everything looks like a file • Not just for storage • Provides Services, Domain Model / Business Model 7Tuesday, April 19, 2011
