    JBoss Portal vs. Tiles + Alfresco

    Waldemar Baraldi Newbie


      We are evaluating portlets in general and JBoss Portal in particular. We need a CMS with good staging capabilities, and a flexible layout mechanism. All three are quite weak in JBoss Portal (version 2.6 is getting better on the last one). The other alternative is not to use portlets and go with Tiles + Alfresco. This would give us an advanced CMS and Staging facilities with a simple programming model. On the other hand this approach would lack the richness of programming using portlets.

      Another constraint we have is the use of Maven and Continuous Integration, as we see neither portlets nor portals go well with this environment.

      Would you give us some feedback on this?. Any opinion would be of great value.

      Thanks in advance,
