A very general question that I was hoping that someone conversant with Websphere might be able to answer: does WebSphere contain a Content Management system of any sort?

WebSphere Application Server itself is just an Application Server, IBM allied with Vignette on content management solution I think.
So in short, WebSphere has no bundled Content Management solution.

IBM has been cooperating with Documentum in content management.

Also, the newly released WebSphere Portal Server, version 4.1 contains a rudimentary content management solution, although its use should be restricted to those customers who do not need to power or complexity of a system like Vignette or Documentum.
