The Deventer pop podia 'Het Burgerweeshuis' uses a Content Management System (CMS) to manage the content of their website which has the goal to inform the visitors about the activities that are being organized.
It is also possible for the visitors to make a reservation by using the functionality that the site offers.
The previous CMS started out once as a hobby project by one of the ex-employees who worked for Topicus and was build on the Maverick framework
Topicus is a Dutch innovative ICT service provider solving chain integration problems in the financial, healthcare and willing to provide two students from the Saxion Universtiy (Enschede, The Netherlands) with a graduation project. Topicus came up with the idea to provide the Content Management System of Het Burgerweeshuis with Wicket functionality. This way the students (and possible new employees) could become familiar with programming with Wicket and also other technologies like Hibernate and Maven that are commenly used in some of the Topicus applications.
The intencion of this project in the first place is to provide a Content Manangement System for Het Burgerweeshuis
and secondly to give the Open Source Community a showcase of an application build on the Wicket framework This means that you may feel free to download the project, study it and if you like use it for your own purposes (see also the license section).
The project comes, besides the CMS system, together with a the website it manages (Het Burgerweeshuis) and a databaseconverter that was used to re-structure the data from the database used by the old system to the database of the new system.
In brief, this CMS system offers the features for the website www.burgerweeshuis.nl to:
