Hi all,

I'm evaluating different CMS and arrive at the conclusion to decide between two products: Typo3 3.8 and OpenCMS 6.0.

Inhouse our infrastructure and software-engineering is all java-based which makes it a little difficult to argue for a php-based system.
But integration the CMS into our infrastructure is not THAT important so I wouldn't mind to run it as "blackbox" using LDAP for user-administraion.

My requirements:
- open source
- multidomains
- ldap-integration
- i18n
- static files output
- simple workflows
- publishing/deployment
- versioning

Pros and Cons for Typo3:
pro: online-community, extension-principle, ldap-integration, out-of-the-box features, ease of use
cons: workflows, versioning, "php-based"

Pros and Cons for OpenCMS:
pro: "java-based", versioning, workflows
cons: ldap-integration, out-of-the-box features, online-community

So my question:
- After searching I wasn't able to find a direct comparison between this two products (www.cmsmatrix.org isn't that up to date) - anyone knows an usable article anywhere?
