Hi, Thanks.

All the 4 Authors are going to be available to answer your queries related to the book and the topic (Open Source Enterprise Content Management).

To give you all a brief background... Alfresco is one of the most popular Java-based Content Management System. Alfresco 3 is its upgraded version which includes Alfresco Surf, a new N-Tier Architecture, which delivers scalability and accommodates more users on existing hardware resources. Alfresco 3 offers true Enterprise Content Management (ECM) by providing an Open Source alternative to Microsoft SharePoint, Documentum, and Interwoven.

Hope the new book is going to be helpful to the businesses to roll-out enterprise CMS at cheaper costs.

Hello;

For a long time I have looked for a Java CMS I can use to create simple web sites (just static info with easy to use navigation and a contact page) and easily maintain them.

I took a look at Alfresco a while back, and I was not able to figure out just clicking around in the application how to create a simple site. Perhaps Alfresco is over kill for something like this?

Is this a topic your book covers? Is Alfresco the right choice for generating simple sites?

Thanks,

Luke

Hi Luke,

Alfresco has 3 line of products. 1. Document Management 2. Web Content Management 3. Records Management.

The "Web Content Management" module is a perfect fit for your requirements. The book covers item #1. Document Management features only. However, you can install and try out web content management functionality of Alfresco easily.

Try the 3.x Labs version from Source Forge (which is the latest version of Web Content Management).

Hope this helps.

If Luke Shannon's post above is admissible, then mine sure was.
My question was about the ease of web page indexing and search facilities available with Alfresco CMS.
May I know where else to post the question in order to take part in the book promotion?

Did you read the opening post for this topic? It states, in bold:

The previous question was not removed because it had already been answered, but it is not eligible for the drawing.
