Razuna, open source Digital Asset Management, service. The service will be released to the public in the coming weeks.
Among other things, I am one of the members of the OpenBD Steering Committee. OpenBD is the first Open Source ColdFusion Application Server and has a long history of the product itself and the members of it.
But somehow, when the company behind the commercial BlueDragon product decided to open source their J2EE BlueDragon product, something strange happened. Instead of cheering to have (finally) a open source
CFML server, the CFML community seamed to dislike it. The reason for
this, lies beyond me and does not make any sense. Fortunately, people
Today Joe Rinehart, a prominent figure in the CFML community, posted some very nice comments on his blog about OpenBD. The blog title is OpenBD: I’m sorry, it’s actually nice!. Here is a quote from it:
…OpenBD started up, and immediately told me that there was an
exception that was entirely my fault. And the exception
information…wow. Anything and everything: lines of code causing the problems, the files they were in, all of the scope variables, introspection
of the CFCs that were involved, and it was all logged out to an HTML
file. Good job, OpenBD team! This kind of raising the bar in respect
to competitive products is what it’s all about!…
I want to thank Joe for giving the OpenBD product another chance and leaving all the bad vibes behind it. If you too, want to move to a pure open source stack then give OpenBD a chance today.
In case you don’t know, but Razuna, our open source Digital Asset Management, is also based on OpenBD. You can download the complete Open Source DAM offering over at the Razuna website.

We just wanted to let you know that we still got some beta slots open for our latest Razuna, open source Digital Asset Management, service. The service will be released to the public in the coming weeks.
This means, you don’t have to install any server on your machine or
do anything special for us. All we want from you is to spent some time
testing our new Razuna service and give us some feedback on how you
like it and how it performs for you.
