Dear Pals,
We are planning to prepare a newspaper management system software for a local daily. As far I got their requirements, its actually some sort of Document Management System combined with an internal messaging system. I have been assigned the job of studying the feasible solution architectures. We would be very glad to develop the system using open source projects.
I would like to prepare the solution using -
  • Java
  • XML
  • An open source version management system (like CVS)


  • Now I am searching for some standard newspaper management system software on the web to have an idea. Can anyone suggest me an open source document management system (supporting document versioning and archiving)? Even better, can you say of a document management engine? Or what supports or API does CVS offer a java developer to manipulate the CVS engine and plug that service to a Swing?
    Any other ideas will be highly appreciated.

    I just found one open source document management system ScrollKeeper, something I was looking for. It is based on XML and uses OMF (Open Source Metadata Framework).You may find a good article on this at -
    ScrollKeeper: Open Source Document Management
    But the problem is that its now only in version 0.2, in early stages. So, can I use it in my java-based distributed application?

    I feel ScrollKeeper is in too early version to suite our purpose and for the versioning, content archiving and online publishing part, I have deployed the sample applications of Roller and Cofax. I think a combination of these two may serve well.
    In the meantime, I just found another open source content management system OpenCMS
    Its providng JSP support from 5.0 beta 1 version! I am now downloading it to see. Have anyone of you here used OpenCMS? Any comment on it?
