Hi all,
Do you know what is the best open sourced Java based content management tool that is currently out there?

I ran into Apache Lenya but I could not find much documentation on it? Is this still new? If this is best one can you please point me to where I can read on it?

If there is something better, please show me.

Thanks in advance,
Jehan

OpenCMS, Magnolia and Alfresco are the big names in the Java CMS space.

What documentation about Lenya are you looking for that's not on its web site?

Thanks for the info. My heart is not set on Lenya. I am just looking for the one that is the most proven and that has the most documentation.

Which of these would you recommend?

Probably OpenCMS, but mostly because of its name recognition. I haven't used any of them enough to give educated advice.

My previous employer used Magnolia, and always had positive comments about it, although I never used it myself.

If you want to see an example of the output from it - my previous employer's site.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
