Content Repository for Java Technology API Version 2.0 (JSR 283) is a project whose aim is to produce a content repository API that provides a standard way to access content bi-directionally and granularly. The API would enable such tasks as author based viewing, full text searching, access control, content categorization and event monitoring. JSR 283 is a further enhancement of JSR 170.

Business value:
The databases underlying many applications aren't particularly suited for content management, due to requirements specific to content management for handling objects such as documents and images. Content repositories add functionality to the underlying databases to make them more effective for content management. An API is required to allow applications to interact with the content repository. JSR 170 defines a standard Java-based content repository API. JSR 170 facilitates the development of connections to content repositories. It also enables the same content repository to be accessed by different applications and portals, and the same applications to connect to different content repositories. It benefits enterprises by opening access to content repositories, eases development, and streamlines repository management.
