About Weceem

Weceem CMS is a free, open source content management system. It is built with Grails, a rapid application development framework build on the Java VM using Groovy, Java and Spring.

With Weceem you can host corporate websites, simple blogs or build your own applications. You even can define your own content types that add custom functionality or integrate tightly with existing systems you have.

Weceem has no ego: there are numerous customisation points that allow you to tailor the security mechanisms, administration skin, url paths, scope for custom data types and server-side scripting using Groovy. It is built from the ground up to be embeddable as well as a standalone application.

It uses an SQL database for storage, and requires a Java servlet container like Tomcat or Jetty to run. Weceem.org is self-hosting, demonstrating the data model and core functionality.
