Document Management in Portal

Hi Ashish,

There is obviously a big push for Enterprise Portal development using SharePoint now that 2010 is in full swing.

One of the competitive advantages of SP is obviously their Document Management capability which comes out of the box.... but as you know most Java Portals do not come with this.

Can you comment on your experience using various third party Document management tools (open source and not) with Java Portals? How do they compare with eachother and SharePoint (if you've had any experience with it)?

You can use Alfresco open source CMS (provides document management features), which I have found as a good fit for most scenarios.
