New OpenCms book provides project with support

Damian Carvill writes "Packt Publishing is pleased to announce details of a new book on OpenCms 6.0, the popular and professional level open source website Content Management System (CMS). Written by Matt Butcher, Managing and Customizing OpenCms 6.0 Websites is a practical guide to creating and managing your own website with this proven Java/JSP based Content Management System.

OpenCms allows you to create and manage complex websites. Based on Java and XML technology, it fits into almost any modern IT environment. Now at version 6, OpenCms has blossomed into a mature and proven Content Management System. OpenCms can be daunting on first approach, but its advanced features reward the investment in learning. With hard-won experience of the practical difficulties faced by developers working with OpenCms, Managing and Customizing OpenCms 6.0 Websites is the embodiment of the author's expertise, and the perfect way to master the system.

Based on customer feedback from the acclaimed first edition "Building Websites with OpenCms", this book concentrates on the process of setting up an OpenCms 6 website, with particular attention to the new features of OpenCms 6.

"The new book on OpenCms 6 is an important milestone for the project” admits Alexander Kandzior, the founder and lead developer of OpenCms, "documentation is crucial for us." He goes on to say that "I am confident this book will be helpful for both new and experienced OpenCms users. Matt Butcher and Packt Publishing have done a great job with first edition on OpenCms 5, and I’m sure this new book will be even better."

Regardless of whether you are a user, administrator, designer or webmaster, the book has been written for anyone who wants to get an OpenCMS website up and running as quickly as possible. You do not have to be a Java developer to benefit from this book, although a working knowledge of Java, JSP, and XML will help you to get the most from OpenCMS, and this book.

Managing and Customizing OpenCms 6.0 Websites will be released in June. For more information please visit
