There were several people who noticed the strange statements when the
article was published ("there was *no* open source Java CMS engine source
when we looked", emphasis in the original). There are of cause quite a few
Open Source Content Management Systems. See http://oscom.org/

Read the comments at the end of the article. Here are a few quotes from

"I knew the 'first open source java cms' line was going to come back to
haunt us."

"if we are talking about business, the basis of OSS sales is brand and URL.
By pushing our own branded solution to the CMS mess we hope to drive some
business as well. Building brand is business 101"

(lurking here but more attached to Apache Lenya)

> Marc Fleury,
> I recently read your article on your rewriting of PostNuke (written in
> PHP) in order to transform PostNuke into a J2EE web application, which you
> call "Nukes on JBoss" (hereinafter "Nukes"). The article is here:
> http://www.onjava.com/pub/a/onjava/2003/06/04/nukes.html .  In the
> you make an interesting claim, that Nukes is "the first _comprehensive_
> open source, Java CMS engine on the market" (emphasis added). I consider
> this claim interesting because I am learning OpenCMS (at www.OpenCMS.org),
> a capable CMS that is released under the LGPL and written entirely as Java
> servlets. OpenCMS predates Nukes considerably (OpenCMS was released years
> ago), and I consider it to be comprehensive. Were you aware of OpenCMS
> you wrote your article, and, if so, do you consider it _not_ to be
> comprehensive? The statement in the article implies that you do not
> that OpenCMS is comprehensive.
> I am interested in reading your reply.
> Sincerely,
> Paul Bain
