Nuxeo is the company behind one of the most complete open source Enterprise Content Management (ECM) solution. It has roots in the Zope project but made a complete switch to the Java platform last year with their 5.0 release.

Last week, they released their 5.1 version, adding a REST API based on the Restlet project. You can read details about this integration in their reference manual.

There also seems to be a good competition between Nuxeo and Alfresco, another popular Java-based open source ECM solution. One area of comparison is on the depth of the open source commitment as highlighted in this very interesting article from CMS Wire.

Another area of debate is on their support of Web Services APIs and more specifically REST APIs. James McGovern has a good post that summarizes the situation.
