Subject Re: Slightly OT: Which CMS?
Date Mon, 02 Jul 2007 10:07:57 GMT
Hi,

we're using OpenCms (http://www.opencms.org) for many customers. It's a
nice open source CMS solution and run's well with tomcat. Although it
may be a bit hard to get into development it has a very intuitive user
interface. I'll try to elaborate a bit on your requirements:

> able to somehow import our old content (static HTML, Java-Script)

There's an import functionality for static content available

> would be great if it doesn't take 1/2 year training until you can
work with the CMS (like Typo3)

The UI is very Windows-Explorer Like but it requires some office/windows
knowledge to grasp the concepts.

> open source & developer-community would be a REAL BIG PLUS

It's open source but mainly developed by a company named Alkacon. But
it's not as community driven as Apache projects.

> should be able to integrate our dynamic content (Servlets, JSP)

You can write JSPs inside the CMS. Although there are some limitations
if you want to include files inside the CMS. You then have to use a
special tag <cms:include/>.

> dynamic content is protected by Tomcat Formbased AA - would like

You can set ACLs on content and JSPs

But of course: You have to evaluate the CMS yourself. What works fine
for us may be horrible for you ;)

Regarding PHP: IMHO it is more difficult to make PHP secure but i think
this mainly depends on the used CMS.

best regards,
Sebastian
