WebC-Docs - A CMS-based Document Management System

João de Sousa Saraiva, Alberto Rodrigues da Silva


Content Management Systems (CMS) are typically regarded as critical software platforms for the success of organizational web sites and intranets. Nevertheless, a simple CMS alone does not provide enough support for a typical organization's requirements, such as document management and storage. On the other hand, Enterprise Content Management (ECM) systems are typically regular web-applications that provide such functionality but without the added advantage of being based on a component-based CMS platform. This paper presents the architecture and major technical details of WebC-Docs, a highly-customizable toolkit (for the WebComfort CMS platform) that provides document management functionality. Due to this, the WebC-Docs toolkit can be configured and used in various kinds of scenarios.
