A Real-world story of converting a database-based application to being content-driven

A story of how the Archiva project moved from a database and ORM solution, to being a content-driven application, and the advantages and disadvantages of doing so. Learn how we defined the content model for the application and started migrating the data and the architecture, and the natural benefits we immediately found in the process. We will discuss the technologies we used and evaluated, including Apache Jackrabbit and Apache Sling, and what we learned about them on the way.
