Here's a short introduction to JCR, the Java Content Repository. Instead of going into details about the API, we'll just explain the bare minimum to allow you to get a feel for how JCR works and how it is used.

It's nifty in some respects, and seems to fit well with the REST paradigm, but beware some of the implementations and products built upon it. My company bought into Day Communique (Built on CRX, which is a JCR implementation), which was a nightmare. After 2 years and millions of dollars later they finally dropped it in favor of another vendor. I only mention this because Day Software is the main development force behind the JCR, Sling, and Jackrabbit.

Do you mind mentioning which vendor replaced Day?,

I left months ago so I don't remember the name, but I can try to find out for you if you'd like.

To put Programmist's comments in perspective, there are many success stories amongst Day customers, http://www.day.com/day/en/customers.html - a recent example is http://2010.newsweek.com - powered by JCR.

To be fair, I am talking about CQ 4.2.1 and I know 5.x is the current standard. But, many of the the problems I saw were related to the qualifications of the "consultants" that were sent to our location and what the company promised vs. what was actually delivered. This is not the place for it, but I (and a former colleague) have a list of issues that we'd be happy to share on request.
