ObjectWeb prepares eXo JCR 1.0 RC1, a JCR implementation

Xavier MOGHRABI writes "The eXo Platform software is a powerful Open Source corporate portal and content management system. Users of the platform have a customized single point of access to the company's information system and resources. The use of a corporate portal increases productivity as it provides business information to the firm's employees, allows the exchange and management of this data, as well as the execution of critical business processes, from the web environment.

  Based on industry standards and leading the innovation in its field, the eXo Platform is a low cost solution that offers a very high Return On Investment. Moreover, the source code for the whole platform is distributed allowing each client to adapt the portal to specific business requirements and to react aptly to technological developments.

  With an efficient corporate portal you gain a competitive edge in your business. But, be informed that the introduction of the platform into your existing system is a multi-step process: you need to specify requirements, audit the functionalities and applications of the current information system, integrate them within the portal solution, and teach users how to add value with a new set of worktools.
