JBoss Enterprise Portal Platform - Site Publisher

I was up at JBoss World this week for the big announcement of JBoss EPP and EPP Site Publisher . I got to meet with a number of customers, sales, marketing and core developers. Great to reconnect with so many old friends. And especially great to see the excitement behind this new announcement. A couple of observations: - Customers are very interested in either adding these capabilities to their existing JBoss apps, or in upgrading to a more modern architecture and features from their old (read outdated) portals like Vignette, Oracle and IBM. - Red Hat/JBoss sales likes the fact they are no longer behind in terms of features. EPP5 takes them ahead of every other alternative in the market. And JBoss customers no longer have to go to three vendors to get what they want! They expect EPP-SP to make a significant dent in their quotas this year. - Everyone likes the idea of being able to get Portal and Web Content Management from one vendor with the size and credibility of JBoss.

eXo - Putting all the Announcements in Perspective

Rolled out all of our Open Source implementations of our Solutions, including: GateIn Portal eXo Social Services eXo Web Content Management eXo Collaboration Services eXo Knowledge Services 2. Rolled out a whole new website . The cool thing about this is the eXo Resource Center for developers - the best one I have seen for developers and architects. And wait another few months and you will see the content here more than triple. 3. JBoss announced the JBoss Enterprise Portal Platform (EPP) , based on our joint open source project, GateIn. JBoss further expanded this with the availability of EPP Site Publisher, which is a total web solution with the bundling of the eXo Web Content Management solu
