France-based eXo competes with Red Hat/JBoss and Liferay for a share in the growing open source enterprise portal platforms market. eXo recently launched eXo Platform 3.0, an offering based on the GateIn portal project that they produced collaboratively with erstwhile competitor, JBoss. Earlier, JBoss had also released its own portal, Enterprise Portal Platform (EPP 5), which also was based on GateIn. For you, a prospective portal adopter, this begs the question: what's the difference between the two offerings, and which one provides a better fit for an enterprise that wants to go the GateIn route?
