Cloud-Native Content Services for Spring

Spring Content provides modules for managing content in JPA, MongoDB's GridFS, S3 or Filesystem storage. When combined with Spring Data/REST it allows content to be associated with Spring Data Entities. The Solr module provides an integration with Apache Solr for fulltext indexing and search capabilities. The Renditions module provides a pluggable renditions framework and several out-of-the-box renderers that can render stored content in several different formats.

$ BUILD_TYPE=dev ./mvnw clean install

If you want to build with the regular mvn command, you will need Maven v3.2.1 or above.

Also see if you wish to submit pull requests, and in particular please fill out the Contributor's License Agreement before your first change, however trivial.

Building reference documentation

The reference documentation can be included in the build by specifying the docs profile.
