Day Software Delivers Standardized Connectivity for Vignette VCM


Standards Leader Ships JSR 170 Interoperability for Legacy Repositories

Basel, Switzerland and Newport Beach, California – February 19, 2007, Day Software (SWX: DAYN, OTC:DYIHY), a leading provider of global content management and content infrastructure software, today announced that the company is continuing to deliver standardized connectors for leading legacy repositories. The repository connectors are fully compliant with the Content Repository for Java Technology API standard (JSR 170). The latest of these groundbreaking interfaces is for Vignette VCM, creating greater interoperability and openness for the legacy document repository vendor. Other connectors that are in development include interfaces for Microsoft SharePoint, IBM Domino.doc, and Software AG Tamino, among others.

The Vignette VCM connector is part of Day’s Content Integration family of products that enable enterprises to access and manage all organizational content through a standardized API. This technology allows the implementation of content access, synchronization and consolidation, leveraging future-proof standardization, even if the content resides in data stores that do not provide a JCR compliant API.

Key JCR Features

* Ability to access (read) critical content, including metadata, users, groups and group memberships from the VCM repository
* Access Control List (ACL) association to fulfill enterprise security requirements
* Content Search of the VCM repository using the Xpath or SQL query language
* Access to all content stored in the VCM repository, or to a subset using repository views
* Observation capabilities to monitor changes in content, including metadata, users, groups and user permissions in the VCM repository
* Ability to export repository content

Operational Features

* Configurable content mapping from the connector to a VCM repository
* Configurable observation intervals
* Minimal memory and disk usage profiles to support full scans of large repositories
* Application access via JNDI, RMI or WebDAV
* Single Sign-On support

Day’s Repository Connectors provide a standardized JCR interface, allowing companies to access their most valuable assets – information about its specific business, its processes, products, customers and documents that previously resided in a proprietary repository. These documents and information can be accessed through the JSR 170 interface.
