has released Magnolia 1.0, a new Content Management System (CMS) that leverages Java. Magnolia is a free system that’s been released as open source, and it’s been tested with various operating systems and Web browsers including Mac OS X and Safari.
Obinary bills Magnolias as “the first J2EE-deployable and Java-based CMS which has been built from the ground up to support the upcoming standard of Java Content Repositories (JCR).”
JCR is a new method of content management in Java 2 that provides a standard way for CMS systems to interact with their underlying content storage systems, rather than relying on proprietary application programming interfaces (APIs) to do the same thing.
Magnolia utilizes Java, XML, JSP, JSTL and a custom tag library. Its developers claim that Magnolia can be installed in 10 minutes.
