Cologne, Nordrhein-Westfalen, Germany, 2011/05/25 - The Alkacon OCEE OpenCms Enterprise Extensions are now available in version 3.0 for OpenCms 8. This is a compatibility update with some new features and improvements for the latest version 8 of the popular web content management system OpenCms.
The Alkacon OpenCms Enterprise Extensions are a commercial extension for the popular open source web content management system OpenCms that offers support for LDAP, Clustering, Replication and improved performance.
The latest OCEE release version 3.0 is a compatibility update to work with the new OpenCms 8.
New features and improvements in OCEE 3.0 for OpenCms 8 include improved OCEE Accelerator that now features memory usage information to cache statistics.
Furthermore the OCEE LDAP Connector now supports group name translation and support for nested groups when using Microsoft Active Directory.
Main features in OCEE are support for multi-staging scenarios with the OCEE Replicator: A "development" server can be configured that first pushes all generated content to a "staging" server e.g. for approval, and then afterwards to the "delivery" server. This is freely configurable, and there is no limit on the number of stages.
Centralized configuration of servers with the OCEE Cluster allows a Content Manager to edit the scheduled jobs, search index configuration and module parameters for all individual servers in the cluster from a common GUI in the workplace server.
It is now possible to connect each OpenCms Organizational Unit with an individual path in the LDAP Server.
A much improved cache policy in the OCEE Accelerator now selectively flushes only certain cached items after publishing instead of just flushing everything.
Alkacon OCEE adds features to OpenCms that are often required for running OpenCms in a medium or large Enterprise, where data consistency, security and failover are highly important.
The Alkacon OpenCms Enterprise Extensions are available as a licensed software product from Alkacon Software GmbH, the company responsible for most of the development of the open source core OpenCms system.
OCEE is a binary only distribution. This means that the source code for the OCEE modules is not available.
OCEE is installed on a standard OpenCms system. OpenCms from Alkacon Software is a professional, easy to use website content management system. OpenCms helps content managers worldwide to create and maintain beautiful websites fast and efficiently.
The fully browser based user interface features configurable editors for structured content with well defined fields. Alternatively, content can be created using an integrated WYSIWYG editor similar to well known office applications. A sophisticated template engine enforces a site-wide corporate layout and W3C standard compliance for all content.
OpenCms is based on Java and XML technology. It can be deployed in an open source environment (e.g. Linux, Apache, Tomcat, MySQL) as well as on commercial components (e.g. Windows NT, IIS, BEA Weblogic, Oracle). As true open source software, OpenCms is free of licensing costs.
