Java watchers saw a fair bit of Java-related news late last week. First, as Oracle's legal case with Google over the search engine's possible infringement of Java in Android moved forward, the judge appeared to side with Oracle. Second, open source Java-based content management Jease achieved its 2.0 release.
Finally, if you're a Java developer and looking for a content management system, you might want to check out Jease. Created by Maik Jablonski, Jease is short for “Java with Ease,” and the latest version, 2.0, transforms it from a content management framework into a full-featured CMS. The new release adds features while preserving ease of use, customization and maintainability.
Three new features worth highlighting are Instant Preview, Link Checker and Redirection Service. Instant Preview lets you preview all changes without forcing you to save them first. Now you won't have to save every time you decide to try out a minor change; you can make the change, preview it, and not bother saving it if you don't like it. Link Checker lets you check the validity of external, and change broken links directly. The Redirection Service lets you use the administration interface to create complex redirect rules based on Java regular expressions.
Jease is based on the ZK framework and driven by Java.
