Leveraging the Direct Manipulation Capabilities of OpenCms by Introducing a Page Definition Layer

Date: May 5, 2008
Time: 13:15 - 14:00
Track: Technical
Type: Presentation
Speaker: Konrad Wulf (businessMart AG)

Abstract

In this session the speaker will present an extension to OpenCms, called Page Definition Module. This extension permits to create, edit, delete and position heterogeneous content elements freely from within the page preview.

The presentation targets both at OpenCms developers, IT architects and OpenCms project managers. It is an advantage to already be familiar with the standard distribution of OpenCms, especially the templating mechanisms, xsd's and the Direct Edit feature.

The audience will get to know the aims and concepts behind the open source Page Definition Module provided by businessMart and how to benefit from it in their own OpenCms projects.
