Abstract

Not long ago, companies looking for an open source Java web content management system (WCM) had limited options. While the open source content management system (CMS) community as a whole was thriving, most of the activity was on the PHP and Python stacks.

The state of the market is rapidly changing. More products are emerging and some of the older projects are seeing resurgence.

In this session, Seth Gottlieb will explain some of the forces behind these trends and where they may lead.  He will describe the leading open source Java WCM technologies on the market, their relative strengths, and where they tend to be used.  

Attendees will achieve an outside perspective of the marketplace with special attention to the products that potential buyers are also considering.
