We are pleased to announce that Jackrabbit Explorer, an administration tool for JCR repositories, is now available for download on.
It’s exciting to be able to contribute something back to the JCR and Jackrabbit community, and we’d welcome feedback andvia the Google Code project.
What is JCR and Jackrabbit?
For more details, take a look at our recent post Content Management vs. Content Repositories vs. Content Platforms which puts all this in context.
5-Minute Intro to Jackrabbit Explorer
Jackrabbit Explorer is an administration tool for JCR and Jackrabbit content repositories. Jackrabbit Explorer uses thefor a rich in-browser user experience for repository administrators, and supports all three repository models (Model 1/local, Model 2/JNDI and Model 3/RMI).

Priocept took the lead in developing Jackrabbit Explorer due to the lack of available or recent tools for managing Jackrabbit repositories independently of applications. We were inspired by CRX Explorer from Adobe/Day, which provides many useful features for repository administrators, such as security management, mixin management and node version management.
We made extensive use of Jackrabbit Explorer during the development of a Content Platform for TUI Travel, which uses Jackrabbit as the core content store.
