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. At Knight Ridder, Cofax technology is helping to serve newspaper content for all (30+) of its papers, including the largest papers, the Philadelphia Inquirer and Philadelphia Daily News, and smaller papers like the Wilkes-Barre Times Leader.
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 others who contributed code. Released under an Apache-style license. Code is now available for download. Based on J2EE, running under Apache Tomcat and other J2EE-compliant app servers.
