    Hello aanno,

    Yes you can using the svn /trunk (Jahia pre-6.5 in development) but the release is not ready for production or even development! (as per today). So maybe you can just be a little bit more patient and wait for the quot;official

    Dear trenaud,

    thank your for the response. It is sensible to say 'wait until the 6.5 code is ready for community involvement'. (As I'm being curious: will that be in week, months, or years?)

    However, the focus of the question was in a different direction. I'm a professional java developer, and currently collecting the requirements for a new web-based software for my employer. It seems that a Web-CMS system could [i:3evep9xs]nearly[/i:3evep9xs] be the software that is needed.

    It is this '[i:3evep9xs]nearly[/i:3evep9xs]' that has risen my question. Jahia is a Web-CMS, but could it serve as a extension framework as well?

    Instead of being abstract, here are my 'additional' requirements:

    [list:3evep9xs]
    [*:3evep9xs] I need a user/role/rights management with addional rights, addional roles and (one) addional (CMS-)object to impose this on. Looking at the (pre-6.5) code, it looks that Jahia's user mangement is ACL-based (and this would be good for this 'extension'). However, I don't know how easy it would be to add this rights/roles/objects to the GUI administration component 'user management'.
    [/*:m:3evep9xs]
    [*:3evep9xs] I need a new type of user (i.e. role) being able to create a new type of objects. When this user type logs in, can it be served with its own type of 'GWT top menu'. Can this type of user have its own (role-based) 'start page'?
    [/*:m:3evep9xs]
    [*:3evep9xs] The very same user should also be a very restricted 'author' that could only fill in one template (and hence creating [i:3evep9xs]one[/i:3evep9xs] page).
    [/*:m:3evep9xs]
    [*:3evep9xs] Also, the new user type GUI interface must be completely customizable. (This means that the 'normal' Jahia Administration GUI is completely unacceptable and must be replaced by custom templates.)
    [/*:m:3evep9xs]
    [*:3evep9xs] The new object needs its own kind of complex workflow (preferable triggered by some workflow library like jRule or a Java BRMS system). Other roles are involved in this workflow as well. There is the need to guide the workflow participants.[/*:m:3evep9xs][/list:u:3evep9xs]

    With this requirements in mind, is Jahia the right start? Will the new extension framework help to meet this kind of requirements in the near future?

    Kind regards,

    aanno
