WebJaxe is a system to create websites with a web-based user interface, using XML technologies to ease and accelerate sites creation and updates. Several authors can participate at the same time to create a website, each one bringing his own contributions.
So, WebJaxe is a CMS, but as opposed to a CMS that lets you edit HTML code or pseudo-code close to HTML, WebJaxe works in two separate steps :
- Edition of the XML files with Jaxe. When editing files with an XML language like XPAGE (included with WebJaxe), it is easy to focus on the content (the meaning of the text), without worrying about the way it will be displayed. This can be disconcerting at the beginning, but a lot of time can be saved eventually.
- Transformation into a website. This transformation is done in one click, and automatically generates a website ready to be used, with navigation, a summary, links, etc... It is possible with XPAGES to choose a "skin" for the website, which makes it very easy to change the presentation without touching the original texts.
