Writing Melenti "gadgets", that is plugins, should also be easier than with Joomla, Drupal, Php-nuke and similar products. This because, says Adrian, "unlike those products, Java has worldwide standards like Spring, JPA, JSF, GWT and so on: new developers can just take a look at the core Melenti API and start writing their own gadgets in no time."
Er, cool. Like, instead of having to know just the Melenti API, I need to know the Melenti API plus all of those other dinosaurs, plus how they interact with the CMS. Looks like that will make plugin development *really* easy.
But I guess there's still room for a CMS aimed at enterprise integration. Just the "personal web pages" aim sounds a bit unrealistic. (Java on shared hosts, anyone? As competitor against Drupal and Joomla? Er, sure.)
Most of the stuff mentioned in the article is pretty cool, though.
