I don't know about you... but I have sometimes been frustrated with Java when it comes to simple CMS capabilities. I have used PostNuke, written in PHP, and it works SO well for small sites. I wanted to have the same in Java, so people could develop great components that sit on top of a rock solid Java platform. I was mentioning this to MarcF, when he told me that JBoss was doing this very thing. PostNuke didn't scale on jboss.org, so they rewrote it on top of JBoss. I do kinda wish you could install it on any app server easily (not based on the JMX microkernel), but who cares. Let's write components!
