Jahia 6: Content Management with Versatility

May 26, 2009

With version 6 of the web content and document managment suite Jahia has set the Swiss enterprise bearing the same name onto a higher level in terms of standard and reputability.

With Jahia, users can combine Web CMS, document management and web portal services into the same package. The new version 6 supports the Java standard for portlets 2.0 (JSR 286) and single-sign-on (SSO). The software works in conjunction with WebDAV and the content repositoryApache Jackrabbitfor document management. For web content administration an Ajax user interface has been made available by the manufacturer.

The Web CMS suite functions with IT environments such as Jboss, Websphere and Bea. The supported system environments, however, are collecting a bit of dust in the process. In addition to RHEL 5.0, Debian 4.0 Etch, and Ubuntu 7.10 Gutsy Gibbon are mentioned.
Jahia is available in a Community edition in addition to a business version which can be obtained with a yearly subscription. The price of the business version varies according to software level (standard, advanced, professional, premium) which cost between 2,000 and 20,000 dollars. A 20% discount is also offered to public and non-profit organizations. The license is GPL and an online demo can be viewed here.
