Get to know the technology stack used by Alfresco...

While working on Alfresco, Have you ever wondered what are the different open source modules or underlying technologies used in Alfresco?

Everyone of us must be knowing about the technologies at a high-level such as spring, acitiviti, solr and so on. However, that is not the complete list of technology stack. There is more to it.

For your knowledge and reference, If you are interested to know the details on the underlying technologies and open source modules used by Alfresco then you can easily find about it from your Alfresco installation. Just navigate to the file called notice.txt at the location {Alfresco_installed_directory}\licenses folder and it lists out everything you should know. 

In my view, it seems to be the best place where all the information about technology stack used in Alfresco is collectively available at a single place. Hope you find this information useful.

Note : I used Alfresco Community 5.0.d as reference Alfresco version for this post as I am having it installed presently on my machine.


  1. Can you include an example notice.txt in your article?

    1. The file is having good amount of content having details to modules/technologies and relevant links for them. It was not feasible to add the whole content in the blog post neither the screen-print as well. Hence, it would be a good idea to check what is inside the file from the installed Alfresco itself. Hope this helps.
