Welcome to AgileSites, the Open Source framework for Agile development with Oracle WebCenter Sites (formerly Fatwire Content Server).
AgileSites requires Java 1.7 or greater and WebCenter Sites version 11.x or greater. Past releases (Fatwire releases) are not supported.
The framework is released under the commercial friendly Apache License 2.0.
Read on this page if you want to know more about this framework.
If you already know what is it, then you can:
If you ever developed with Fatwire Content Server or Oracle WebCenter Sites, you may think (as many do) it is somewhat lacking friendly development tools.
As a developer you may have a wish list. I had a wish list too. After a time I decided to fulfill some of my wishes for Fatwire and Sites development. This framework is the result of this (one year long!) effort.
If your wishes are similar to mine you may be interested in this project.
So, do you want...
thus separating presentation (view) from logic (control) and content (model) ?
coding all your logic in plain Java (using full Java OOP and not crippled JSP Java and awkward library CSElements) ?
so it can be updated easily by Web Designer without extensive recoding?
possibly less verbose, more consistent and helpful in preventing silly mistakes?
thus tracking your work and sharing it with other developers in an healthy way?
so you can develop in Test Driven way and keep a test suite to avoid regression bugs?
integrating and verifying the work of your team, allowing each developer to work in isolation with the JumpStartKit?
that can be easily shared, tracked, compared and deployed?
when you do any change, even small, to your Java code?
either Eclipse, Netbeans, Idea or even Notepad or VI if you like ?
while developing new code using this framework?
being 100% compliant to standard practices
