Subject Re: basic repository editing

hi boris,

just to make sure i understand what you are looking for.

is it correct to say that you are looking for a general purpose
content editor that bases its user-interface on the nodetype
definitions?

and uses something like simple webforms for editing, but if i
understand you correctly it should only display a selected
list of properties and nodes for edition, so all the "system"
nodes and properties are hidden?

we tried to do something along those lines on
http://jcr.day.com, but i think you may have already seen
this, and it is probably too generic for you, is that right?

regards,
david
