Hi guys, since I got a lot of PHP friends, it came to me that I have never heard of a CMS for JSP. Do you know of any? Are they called the same? Which ones are the most popular and are they ok to use with java apps? Thanks!

CMS == Carefree Monkey Saber?

CMS == Content Management System and yes there are a couple for Java. None quite as good as the PHP brothers, IMHO. Just google Java CMS and you'll get some results.

are they ok to use with java apps?

Not sure what you mean there. You don't use a CMS with a Java app. A Java based CMS is written in Java and does the same thing a PHP version does. It lets you maintain a web site without all the coding.

My point was that, when posting, acronyms should be explained upon first usage to avoid ambiguity. CMS is also used to mean Customer Management System and Code Management System.

Hmmm... Ok... Thanks Gregg. I guess this is another learning curve for me trying to learn how to fuse a Java CMS with my existing app... I feel so stressed... Thanks!

Now why on earth would you think such a silly thing? Trying to help people make better posts so that they receive better help as soon as possible is one of the batender's jobs and how could it be construed as any kind of malice?

The only people Bear hates are those that use Scriplets and those that violate our Be Nice policy. You have done niether, that we know of. ;)

Naw... I don't hate anybody, not even those "scriptlet users"! I just try to show them the error of their ways!

But... violaters of the "be nice" policy will be chastised in short order (but again, without malice).

Lolz I can't believe you fell for that Bear. Of course I know of the policies here on the ranch and I'm quite aware that I often times make mistake when posting like, title doesn't make sense and maybe the topic should be placed somewhere else. But then again, thank you guys for always being around. You guys make our jobs secured for about 40%-80% of the time.

Whew! You did have me going for a bit there. Sometimes attempts at humor don't come across as well as we'd like in writen media.

You aren't one of those "scriplet users", are you?

If you have noticed, I have become addict with JSTL tags and EL so being a scriptlet user is just plain impossible for me. I'm not even a bit tempted to do it anymore since about 4 months ago when I first learned Struts, JSTL and EL. I write a script free JSP, and I love doing it. In my previous job though, they write everything in pure JSP(Scriptlets), no servlets which made me very frustrated(After learning Struts). And so... I quit!

Yup, once you try it, it's hard to revert back!
