In the past three years and over the course of numerous real-world implementations, Rivet Logic has built Crafter rivet to address the need for a high-performance, flexible, and easy to use Web content delivery framework.

Rivet Logic Corporation, a leading provider of open source content management and collaboration solutions, officially launched Crafter rivet -- an innovative open source Web content delivery framework. Crafter rivet offers Web application developers an open source framework for building content-rich applications, including next generation enterprise Web sites, portals, and social networking platforms.

Crafter rivet provides the foundation for quickly building high-performance, flexible Web content delivery systems - delivering content that is managed by leading Web content management systems such as Alfresco WCM. Built as an enterprise-grade JEE platform, Crafter rivet provides a solid infrastructure that not only integrates well with enterprise systems and deployment infrastructure, but also supports a full-range of presentation-tier technologies including lightweight scripting through its REST-based APIs. The initial release provides native support for a variety of Web application frameworks including JBoss Seam, Grails, Alfresco Surf, JBoss Enterprise Portal Platform, and the Liferay Portal. Web development language support includes Java, Groovy, PHP, Javascript, among others.

"In true open source fashion, Rivet Logic built the Crafter rivet to 'scratch an itch' - that is, to fill a void in the open source WCM landscape," said Mike Vertal, President and CEO of Rivet Logic. "In the past three years and over the course of numerous real-world implementations, Rivet Logic has built Crafter rivet to address the need for a high-performance, flexible, and easy to use Web content delivery framework."

"Based on the success we've had building production systems with Crafter rivet and extending our heritage as an open source innovator, we are now opening it up to the broader community as an open source project," Vertal continued. "While we are just now releasing it, Crafter rivet has already been proven in production environments."

Currently, there are over 30 Web sites running Crafter rivet in production and several others are under development for enterprises that span a variety of vertical markets including telecom, non-profits, technology, higher education, and media/publishing.
