          I have tried to install it from sources in github. But after generating the dist zip file I don't find any solution to deploy it on my JBoss Portal built from GateIn 3.6. If someone have a clue, please tell me.

          Thanks in advance.


          FYI I have test it under Exo Platform. It's a very nice feature.

            We have a little (and new) WCM for GateIn Portal under the following link:


            May be it could be interesting for you to take a look.

            We will write soon about it.

            In the README there is instructions to setup a demo to view a showcase.

            Hope it can help you.

              Hi, thanks for your help! I'll be waiting for news about it!

                We will be thank you if you can test it and provide feedback.


                Here you can see a screenshot how it looks like:


                We are going to close some pending features to tag into a 1.0.0 version and start to write some formal articles and documentation.

                  Hello Lucas,


                  I have test your solution and it looks very good.


                  I have two suggestions about your code:

                  1) In pom.xml I have added this code adding the exo platform repository just after the properties bloc:


                  If exo repository is not added maven will complains and failed.
                  2) With your data exemple I am facing a nullpointerexception when editing a template:
                  Caused by: java.lang.NullPointerException
                  at org.apache.jsp.jsp.templates.templateEdit_jsp._jspService(templateEdit_jsp.java:2835)
                  After checking the compiled JSP I have found that the problem is comming from the original JSP file: templateEdit.jsp at the line 99.
                  Impacted code is if (t.getVersion().equals(version))
                  In fact no version is associated for each template and a NPE is thrown when applying the equals method on the null version.
                  I have check exo ecms solution from exoplatform github. I have followed the README file associated with the project. After "mvn clean package" I should have a tomcat instance running the ecms project. But it is not the case anymore. I was quiet surprise about the tomcat missing instance. So I have contacted the support using the mailing list. I have got a quick response from them   and now everythings are packaged on only one project platform-public-distributions. For your information I have fully compiled and executed it.


                  I will look deeper on Lucas' solution.

                    Thanks Damien for your feedback.


                    Sorry for the NPE, I did a commit for versioning feature past friday and I didn't update the database .zip example, I will fix it as soon as possible.

                    We are going to release a 1.0.0 soon, with localization, locks and multi authoring implemented, in few days I will update the repository and examples.


                    Thanks a lot again for taking time to review it.

                      Database example has been upload for GateIn lw WCM.

                      We are going to add a couple of features before we tag a first Beta version of the project.


                      Thanks for your feedback,
