What is Slide?

Slide is a project with the Apache Software Foundation. The goal of Slide is to provide a content managment framework. This framework can be used to provide a consistent interface to a variety of respositories or data stores: JDBC databases, source code management repositores, document management repositories, file systems and others.

The key industry standard interface that Slide exposes is WebDAV. Clients that currently support WebDAV can therefore save and retrieve content to these many diverse back-end repositories. Slide also provides an alternative API if you want to build a client with a more direct connection to the Slide repositories.

Soon, this site will provide some better Java documentation that describes how to use the framework, either to create a new client, or to connect a new repository.
