Several OpenKM instances in the same JBoss

Managing several companies with only one OpenKM instance can present several security problems. Actually there is no way to make a relation between a group of users and a company. This means that when you manage document security, all the users will be shown, even users in other companies. Also is not a good way of doing things because you can't have specific configurations for each company.

The best way to accomplish this is having several OpenKM instances in one JBoss. The most complex and time-consuming configuration is related to JBoss. But configuring an OpenKM instance is very straightforward and can take seconds. This implies some source code modifications, so read the Developer Guide carefully before trying this:
