Alfresco and PostgreSQL

Recently I happened to come across Alfresco system which is an open-source content management platform and provides flexibility of developing and deploying an application from start to end by coding just into JavaScript and Freemarker.


JavaScript is used to the action part which can be implemented through MVC framework and the display / UI / view is designed and developed in Freemarker. The backend used in Alfresco is PostgreSQL by default but there is option for changing it to other databases like MySQL etc.


The Alfresco features which impressed me as first time user/developer included centralized document repository, dashboard, minimum or no need to go up to database level, flexible content platform, loose coupling between different modules, application specific alignment towards Financial and Health industries, wide community support plus the ease of usage as well as management of data and users.
