Alkacon OCEE for OpenCms is a commercial extension for OpenCms that offers Support for LDAP, Clustering, Replication and improved performance. Full information about OCEE is available on the Alkacon website.

The latest OCEE release version 2.1.1 is an important update that fixes a number of potential issues and introduces some new features and additions to OCEE version 2 for OpenCms 7.0 / 7.5.

The most important new features in OCEE 2 are:

  • Support for multi-staging scenarios with the OCEE Replicator: You can configure a "development" server that first pushes all generated content to a "staging" server e.g. for approval, and then afterwards to the "delivery" server. This is freely configurable, and there is no limit on the number of stages.
  • Centralized configuration of servers with the OCEE Cluster: You can now edit the scheduled jobs, search index configuration and module parameters for all individual servers in the cluster from a common GUI in the workplace server.
  • Support for OpenCms OUs in the LDAP Connector: It is now possible to connect each OpenCms OU with an individual path in the LDAP Server.
  • Improved performance with the OCEE Accelerator: A much improved cache policy in the Accelerator now selectively flushes only certain cached items after a publish instead of just flushing everything.

This OCEE release has the following version numbers:

OCEE 2.1.1 for OpenCms 7 - OCEE 1.0.17 for OpenCms 6

Please see the OCEE release notes for a full descriptions about the new features and changes in this version.
