Could you in a future blog entry comment on JSR-283 and what you believe is missing from it in terms of functionality that should be addressed in future standards?

> Any predictions about long term how JSR-170/283 and iECM will stack up relative to each other?

I need to do a blog entry on these. Ironically, the amount of work each of them requires takes away from the blog.

JSR-283 is going faster than iECM since it is incremental. Both are affecting each other though, with common participation from IBM, EMC and Alfresco. I have contributed security and versioning proposals to both. FileNet is participating in both with two different members. FileNet is working on a multi-linking proposal in 283 and the query model in iECM.

I would hope that both will have something out by the end of the year.

Not that I evaluated this at all but I did get a smile when I noticed it was in progress:

JCR accessibility from PERL

Only a week earlier I had mentioned to Seth Gottlieb of Optaros that it was a shame that technologies tend to grow in complexity and support for functionality only to be abandoned when some new technology comes a long. Each revolution more ground must be covered (not always but more often then one would like.) I was glad to see a project that leveraged existing code.

John,

These are good comments on the direction of the ECM industry and the major players in it.
You mention both JSR-283 and iECM, and I know that you and David Caruana are very active in both of these standards.
Both Alfresco's support and quality of implementation of JSR-170 is great.

But JSR-170 has the obvious shortcoming of being Java-centric.
And from what I've seen, iECM also seems to be more vendor-friendly in enabling existing repositories.
Any predictions about long term how JSR-170/283 and iECM will stack up relative to each other?
