Many corporate applications need a page where application-specific news are listed. E.g. "Interruptions possible next Monday at 8pm due to update" or "Version 3.5 available. New in this version...".

Many developers place a static page inside application to contain such news. Others store news in a file. Some setup full-blown CMS to serve just this single page.

I've implemented the easiest solution to integrate news into your web-based applications.

No programming or database setup. Put a WAR file into your tomcat/webapps, copy-paste a tiny HTML piece into your application and you are done.

There is no more risk than some non-technical person will break your news page. Web-based news administration is easy to use and have a WYSIWYG editor.

Any comments or suggestions are welcome.
