Welcome to the Technical Documentation of the eZ Publish

...

eZ Publish is an Enterprise Open-Source Content Management System/Framework (CMS/F) at its core. It is highly extendable so with extensions it provides "WCMS" capabilities. Its default Enterprise offering as of version 5.0, "eZ Publish Platform", is extended to provide full set of Customer Experience Management (CXM) capabilities.

What is eZ Publish 5.x?

Version 5 represents a big step forward for eZ Publish, as it introduces a whole new architecture and embraces the full Symfony2 stack and community around it. But as is often the case with architecture; most of it is under the hood in current releases, and there is no new User Interfaces (UI) yet running on the new kernel, however with our "Dual-kernel" approach all existing UI's are still here running on legacy kernel, and same goes for all extensions and solutions made for eZ Publish 4.x.

From high level 5.x is:

  • “Ready for the future, data compatible with the past”: Content Repository accessible via Public API & REST API v2  (full read & write support)
  • Full Symfony2 access”: Symfony2 Full-stack as the framework, extended with eZ Publish features 
  • DemoBundle front-end on top of eZ's Symfony2 stack (read only)
  • “Dual kernel: Full code and data backwards compatibility”: 5.x stack is not fully functional on it's own, it's combined with 4.x ("legacy stack") in a "Dual-kernel" setup (see developer section for more) to be able to provide all features you would expect, this is fully exposed to web site developers as well that want/need to take advantage of legacy stack, 5.x stack or both. 

For more information on the status eZ Publish 5.x, known issues, change logs and architecture updates, see the latests release notes.

This documentation covers functionality in eZ Publish 5.x, a hybrid version of eZ Publish CMS containing eZ Publish 4.x "Legacy", and "Platform" a new generation of eZ Publish on top of Symfony 2 Full stack framework. For further reading on the difference between Platform and legacy, and how they are both bundled in eZ Publish 5.x versions, see eZ Publish 5 Architecture - Introduction & Overview.
