OpenKM: Open Source Document Management

Category: GWT, Showcase

OpenKM is a multi-platform application for document management based on GWT, JBoss, and Jackrabbit (the content repository API).

Version 2.0 has been released, which you can test drive to see the application-style interface. The new features in 2.0 include: the previsualization of multimedia elements as images and videos, an improved an rewritten administration interface, a centralized management of templates, an exclusive area to allow users to store their private documentation, a tool for massive import and output data from ZIP files, searches by date ranks as well as translations to more languages.

However, one of the more relevant functions to mention is the indexing of the most common types of files: text, Office, Office 2007, OpenOffice, PDF, HTML, XML, MP3, JPEG, etc.

the content repository api is so underused out in the open… it just needs advertising or something.

@ilazarte: I’m not sure I know what you’re referring to. Apache Jackrabbit is used by a number of large projects. I’ve personally been a part of two implementations of Jackrabbit. The user community and mailing list are extremely active. This particular implementation of the JCR spec is in Java which limits its exposure since the vast majority of web developers rely heavily on PHP, Ruby, Python, and other scripting languages rather than the larger frameworks like J2EE and .Net.

I think the real problem is no one is doing anything different. They’re implementing the API all the same with minor GUI changes. Until someone does something different and pushes the envelope this tool is going to fall into the cracks just like all the other 100s of CMS/DMS solutions.
