Communiqué 4.1 most open, standardized content management solution available


Basel, Switzerland and Irvine, California – August 16, 2006 – Day Software (SWX: DAYN, OTC:DYIHY), a leading provider of global content management and content infrastructure software, today announced the availability of Communiqué 4.1, the only native JCR (JSR 170) standard compliant enterprise content management solution available. Initiated by Day, JSR 170 is the Java Content Repository (JCR) standard for the enterprise content management industry. Communiqué revolutionizes the market by decoupling a vendor’s content management application from its underlying repository.

Applications leveraging the industry standard application programing interface (API), can run on any JSR 170-compliant repository. This represents a revolutionary shift in the content management industry; previously, customers’ content was ’locked away’ in vendors’ proprietary legacy repositories. The new standard focuses on customers, allowing them to easily access and use their most valuable information, regardless of its location. Communiqué 4.1 ships with, and runs natively, on Day’s innovative JCR, Content Repository Extreme (CRX).

“Communiqué 4.1 truly brings customers to the next evolutionary stage of content management – giving them a standardized content infrastructure and unlocking their proprietary legacy repositories,” said David Nuescheler, Chief Technology Officer, Day Software. “Companies will now have greater flexibility with Communiqué 4.1 allowing them to choose the best-of-breed products that fit their needs.”

Key Enhancements:

The latest version of Communiqué enables enhanced usability for all users, including authors, administrators and developers, to further facilitate all tasks related to the content life cycle within a global enterprise. Enhancements include performance improvements, failover clustering for author systems, a new external web application component, configuration options for versioning, and a portal integration option containing a JSR-168 compliant portlet.

Portal Director
Portal Director provides integration into a portal server environment, allowing Communiqué content to be displayed through a JSR 168-compliant portlet. A portlet can easily be configured and deployed. Content can be dynamically associated with an individual portlet instance using the Communiqué Author environment. Portal Director is currently considered ‘Early Access Technology’.

Active / Passive Clustering
Active/Passive Clustering is the first of several planned High Availability (HA) features. This feature uses one central, high-availability database server for permanent storage, and two servers for non-permanent storage. With this capability, it is possible to provide a completely fail-safe authoring system.

External Application Component
This new component makes it possible to easily include external Web applications in a company’s Web site. The applications are referenced by their URLs, or, if deployed on the same application server, relative URLs can be used.

Configurable Versioning
Communiqué versioning now supports more configuration options. The maximum number of versions can be specified with different values for different parts of the content. Additionally, an automatic periodical purging of versions can be configured.

Enhanced Rich Text Editing
Enhancements to the user interface further improve usability. The Rich Text Editor now provides more flexibility in image handling and allows the use of custom colors in tables.

Improved Performance
Communiqué 4.1 provides extensive performance analysis capabilities with improved overall repository (CRX) performance. Content Authors will also benefit from improved CMS application performance in the author environment.

Seamless Migration
Communiqué 4.1 is a natural continuation of prior Communiqué releases, and provides an easy transition from prior product versions. Existing Communiqué projects can be migrated ‘in place’ with an update installer, leaving the existing deployments and architecture intact. New projects can readily use the standardized API and can fully benefit from the new technology.
