JSR 170 Initiates Work On Content Access API Standard

The Java Community Process’ (JCP) JSR 170 proposes that content repositories have a dedicated, standard way of interaction with applications that deal with content. It provides for access to content bi- directionally on a granular level within a repository.

The JSR further proposes to define a way to integrate content-producer-applications (CMS) and content-consumer- applications (CRM, Portal, etc.). The proposal focuses on read/write access, binary and text based data, full-text searching, filtering, observation, versioning, semi, hard and soft-structured data. The Spec Lead is David Nuescheler, CTO of Day. Initial Expert Group to include Apache, ATG, Broadvision, Day, Deloitte Consulting, Hewlett-Packard, IBM, Interwoven, SAP Portals, Silverstream, Sun, and Vignette.

SER Launches SERglobalBrain

SER Solutions, Inc. announced the launch of SERglobalBrain, a knowledge discovery and delivery solution. SERglobalBrain responds to simple natural language queries. SERglobalBrain analyzes the content and context of information – not just key words and phrases. The application is for structured and unstructured data, regardless of the source or file format. With SERglobalBrain, incorrect spelling does not impact retrieval performance because the software does not require exact matches in text patterns. SERglobalBrain utilizes an associative access method for content-based retrieval. The software can also be taught to act on or deliver answers that meet specific content or criteria by pushing or pulling information off designated Internet sites. In addition, SERglobalBrain is language independent because it looks for patterns and meanings. SERglobalBrain is available in three specific versions that match individual, enterprise or public knowledge access needs. www.ser.com
