Magnolia is the first open-source content-management-system (CMS) which has been built from scratch to support the upcoming standard API for java content repositories (JCR).
Magnolia CMS allows organizations to orchestrate online services, sales and marketing content across all digital channels, maximizing the impact of every touchpoint. Magnolia CMS delivers smartphone simplicity, on an enterprise scale. The mobile-inspired user interface works through customizable, task-focused Apps, a notification stream called the Pulse, and a system of Favorites for quickly accessing the workspace.
Magnolia CMS is Java-based content management system that uses a JCR repository to store, retrieve and search data. In this respect Magnolia is similar to Adobe Experience Manager, Hippo CMS and Jahia which also use JCR. Magnolia uses Apache Jackrabbit, the JCR reference implementation by default. It is possible to use another JSR-170 certified repository implementation such as Modeshape.
