Hello Munwar,

Alfresco is written by Java , isn't it? Is it like Portals such as uPortal, Liferay... or like CMS such as OpenCMS... ?

Thanks very much

Alfresco is written in Java and follows all "open standards" which is the key selling point for Alfresco.

It is not a portal...it is more a like openCMS and MORE>>>

More I mean, Alfresco offers you Document Management, Records Management, Digital Asset Management kind of additional features along with enterprise level WCM (Web Content Management).

Does any Enterprise Content Management also support Document Management, Records Management ... ? Or just Alfresco support them ?

And how about the architecture of Alfresco ? Does it use Spring, Hibernate or Struts ?

Thanks so much

There are many content management systems such as Documentum, Stellent, Vignette provide a wide range of solutions such as document management, records management, web content management and much more that what Alfresco has as of today.

However few things to consider for Alfresco are:
1. Open Source
2. Open Standards
3. Single repository for all the solutions
4. Fastest JCR repository
5. Cheaper and low Total Cost of Ownership
6. Runs on wide range of platforms

Some of the commercial closed source companies do not provide advantages listed above.

Alfresco is based on Spring framework with JSF and Hibernate plus additional open source components.

Thanks Munwar so much I'm using Liferay. It's an interesting portal. I know that we can integrate CMS with Liferay portal. In this situation , can we integrate Alfresco with Liferay or some other portals ?
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
