GateIn WCM uses templates to render content through WCM Content portlet.
Templates have following features:
Templates can be resused: WCM Content portlet is responsible to link a template with their own content at portlet configuration level.
Templates defined at application level (JSPs, JSF, Portlets) are less flexible in terms that a change in the template has to be done by a development team and re-deploy by portal administrators.
Wcm tags allow to Web Designers to combine a html web design with content in a simple way having a dynamic tool to create new sites easily.
GateIn WCM supports both models:
- Powerful templates for Web Designers.
- GateIn WCM API for Java/Portlets Developers.
Templates are managed in WCM Editor portlet and processed by WCM Content portlet.
