Based on Wicket (http://wicket.apache.org/) and JCR, it is the best Wicket-based CMS framework available today. BRIX is simple yet powerful and extensible, allowing designers the highest degree of freedom in developing a rich user experience.
Using Apache Wicket as the technology to serve the content makes it very easy to embed custom, stateful Wicket components into any CMS page, allowing rich integration with any existing Wicket web application. Using Apache Jackrabbit (http://jackrabbit.apache.org/) allows Brix to easily integrate full text search, versioning, and WebDav access.
Brix is business-friendly, open sourced under the Apache Software License version 2.0.
