Welcome to Apache Jackrabbit FileVault

The FileVault introduces a JCR repository to filesystem mapping. The mapping is exposed by an API and used by the “FileVault Content Packages” which allow to create portable packages of repository content.

The Vault Command Line Interface aka “vlt” provides a Subversion like utility to work and develop with repository content.

Apache Jackrabbit FileVault is a project of the Apache Software Foundation.


Please refer to the documentation at https://jackrabbit.apache.org/filevault/

Building FileVault

You can build FileVault like this:

mvn clean install

You need Maven 3.6.2 (or higher) with Java 11 (or higher) for the build. For more instructions, please see the documentation at:


Building FileVault Site

The FileVault documentation lives as Markdown files in src/site/markdown such that it easy to view e.g. from GitHub. The Maven site plugin can be used to build and deploy a web site from those sources as follows:

  1. From the reactor build the site with javadoc:

     $ mvn site
  2. Review the site at target/site

  3. Deploy the site to https://jackrabbit.apache.org/filevault/ using:

     $ mvn site-deploy
  4. Finally review the site at https://jackrabbit.apache.org/filevault/index.html.

Note: To skip the final commit use -Dscmpublish.skipCheckin=true. You can then review all pending changes in vault-doc/target/scmpublish-checkout and follow up with svn commit manually.

Note: Every committer should be able to deploy the site. No fiddling with credentials needed since deployment is done via svn commit to https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/jackrabbit/site/live/filevault.
