Apache Sling is a web framework that uses a Java Content Repository, such as Apache Jackrabbit, to store and manage content. Sling applications use either scripts or Java servlets, selected based on simple name conventions, to process HTTP requests in a RESTful way. The embedded Apache Felix OSGi framework and console provide a dynamic runtime environment, where code and content bundles can be loaded, unloaded and reconfigured at runtime.
The Sling Launchpad is a ready-to-run Sling configuration, providing an embedded JCR content repository and web server, a selection of Sling components, documentation and examples. The Launchpad makes it easy to get started with Sling and to develop script-based applications.
You can mount the repository via WebDAV to explore or modify content, simply use the root URL as the WebDAV server URL.
