Jackrabbit FileVault Codebase Intellectual Property (IP) Clearance Status


Jackrabbit FileVault introduces a JCR repository to filesystem mapping. The mapping is exposed by an API and used by the CRX "Content Packaging" that allows to create portable packages of repository content. The Vault Command Line Interface aka "vlt" provides a subversion like utility to work and develop with repository content.

This is a rather large contribution of code that was developped over 5 years and consists of 450 Java classes and interfaces.
