Xythos Software, a developer of basic document management software, announced its support for JSR-170 level 2 in its WebFile Server platform. The Java Specification Request (JSR)-170 standard defines a uniform application programming interface (API) for access to content repositories intended to simplify how content is accessed and managed.

Developers of the popular online collaboration and learning environment, Sakai, are busy using Xythos to create a single java content repository (JCR) for all content created and stored on campuses. "We are actively working on a Xythos/Sakai JSR-170 integration which several institutions have already inquired about," said Ian Boston, a lead architect for Sakai and the CTO at CARET for theUniversity ofCambridge. "The JSR-170 standard finally offers us an excellent opportunity to provide effective and close integration between enterprise wide Xythos installations and institutional Sakai deployments and we are collaborating with several R1 universities pursuing this content management strategy," he added.
