This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
This week, we're delighted to have Munwar Shariff, Vinita Choudhary, Amita Bhandari, and Pallika Majumdar (hopefully most) helping to answer questions about the new book Alfresco 3 Enterprise Content Management.
The promotion starts Tuesday, August 18th 2009 and will end on Friday, August 21st 2009.
We'll be selecting four random posters in this forum to win a free copy of the book provided by the publisher, Packt Publishing.
All the 4 Authors are going to be available to answer your queries related to the book and the topic (Open Source Enterprise Content Management).
To give you all a brief background... Alfresco is one of the most popular Java-based Content Management System. Alfresco 3 is its upgraded version which includes Alfresco Surf, a new N-Tier Architecture, which delivers scalability and accommodates more users on existing hardware resources. Alfresco 3 offers true Enterprise Content Management (ECM) by providing an Open Source alternative to Microsoft SharePoint, Documentum, and Interwoven.
Hope the new book is going to be helpful to the businesses to roll-out enterprise CMS at cheaper costs.
For a long time I have looked for a Java CMS I can use to create simple web sites (just static info with easy to use navigation and a contact page) and easily maintain them.
I took a look at Alfresco a while back, and I was not able to figure out just clicking around in the application how to create a simple site. Perhaps Alfresco is over kill for something like this?
Is this a topic your book covers? Is Alfresco the right choice for generating simple sites?

Alfresco has 3 line of products. 1. Document Management 2. Web Content Management 3. Records Management.
The "Web Content Management" module is a perfect fit for your requirements. The book covers item #1. Document Management features only. However, you can install and try out web content management functionality of Alfresco easily.
Try the 3.x Labs version from Source Forge (which is the latest version of Web Content Management).

If Luke Shannon's post above is admissible, then mine sure was.
My question was about the ease of web page indexing and search facilities available with Alfresco CMS.
May I know where else to post the question in order to take part in the book promotion?
