My organisation went through the process of evaluating a number of OS Java CMSes and went with Daisy:

We have been analisying a lot of CMS lately for our organization and all I can tell you is that there is no "best" product.

It depends *a lot* on your requirements and how flexible they are and how much you can compromise to do things the way the product wants you to, instead of the products adapting to your way of working, as there is no perfect solution, no matter what they tell you.

Before trying to choose a CMS, I would try first to decide "what you want the CMS for", "How you would want the system/workflow to work, and I'm not talking about defining workflows in tools, just how things are supposed to work in real life, and what are the things you absolutely need that you cannot give up.

Having said that, there is a lot of confusion around the term CMS, as some people understand CMS as something to handle documents (aka document repository), some understand a web publishing system (aka web CMS) and some understand "anything that manages content" in broader sense in the world. So careful when you see people offering or writing about "a CMS", it could be something quite different of what you expect :).

Not sure which kind of CMS you are refereng too, so I'll leave it here ;)

Good luck choosing one!

I don't know if it is the best, but Alfresco ( is pretty good.
