Woooo, I was researching for a client [other stuff] and accidentally found one CMS based on Java but it was abandoned. Sorry, I don't remember where... here is this one [java-source.net...]

Why does it have to be java?

it has to be java because we're a very small team (3 developers) and our expertise is in java - if we had more resources, we would not go with java, but with something like wordpress (free and very complete)...

Honestly, if you're good Java programmers (and especially if you know a little C syntax), it would probably take you guys no more than a few hours to understand enough PHP to do lots of stuff with Wordpress.

In fact, I would guess that getting up and running with a Java CMS would take out about as long, because the part that I find is the hardest for most CMS is figuring out the architecture and the APIs, and that's not really a language-specific issue.
