Jease eases the development of content- & database-driven web-applications with Java. Out of the box Jease provides an Ajax-powered Content-Management-System (CMS) which makes use of drag & drop to organize content.

  • A relational database that holds blog posts and users.

This project is just meant to be a demonstration, therefore it is neither well documented nor well tested. Use it to learn about the technologies used, but do not use it for productive applications.

Any feedback is welcome, and I will incorporate useful pull requests.


  • DB4O db4o or Perst or ZooDB as object-oriented persistence engines
  • Lucene Lucene as high performance indexing and search technology.
  • Bootstrap

Make sure Maven >= 2.2.1 is installed on your system. Go into the project dir and type mvn clean package, then deploy war file generated in target folder on a java webserver like tomcat and then point your browser to http://localhost:8080.
