Java open source CMS

After following some links my Java open source CMS list has grown:

Lenya seems a good option, maybe I’m too fan of Apache Foundation.

I’ll make a comparison between them, checking

  • Support of standard portlets JSR-168
  • Internationalization (content and administration)
  • Search of web and documents
  • Performance and cluster support
  • License style and price (GPL may be inappropiate)
  • Support available
  • More to come…

It’ll be a good boost for the project chosen by my company because we develop CMS for major enterprises and government institutions.

Update: Added Magnolia

  1. Carlos, Could you please post the results? I have tried to evaluate OpenCMS but I hit couple of road blocks (because of poor documentation).

    I have tried Magnolia as well but it does not have LDAP integration. Nor does OpenCMS (I suppose). Or if it does have such support, its not documented!

    Does your evaluation criteria include, JSR 170 (Java Content Repository API)?

  2. Thank you all, I’ve added Magnolia to the list of CMS to check.
    It’s very interesting hearing about JSR-170, I’ll take a look at it.
    I’ll try to post the comparison but first I have to convince by boss’es of that. I think I’ll be able to do that.

  3. Hi,

    which one of those open source CMSes in your opinion can be easily deployed on the sun J2EE 1.4 RI server (PE8) with its pointbase database?


  4. Hello,
    I want to know whether we can integrate liferay portals with magnolia cms. Please let me know if any one come across integration of liferay portals with magnolia.
    Thanks in Advance

  5. I’m surprised you’re not taking a look at dotCMS. It seems it would meet all of your requirements and then some.
