What is Cofax ?
Cofax is a Web-based text and multimedia content publication/content management system. It was designed to simplify the presentation of newspapers on the Web and to expedite real-time Web publication.
Cofax, at it's core, is a framework of software modules and tools to manage and deliver news content from different sources. It was developed using Java, database, and XML technologies. It is easy to use and implement.
In some ways, it is similar to commercial products like Vignette StoryServer, FutureTense Internet Publishing System, and Pantheon Builder, but costs much less to implement, maintain and use.
Cofax is Open Source software developed mostly by KnightRidder.com/Philly.com staff working with a host of open source developers who contributed code.
