The Joy of Content Server

Hello, my name is Reiner Merz.

This is the home page of my new blog, the Joy of Content Server. I want to talk about programming and configuration issues of OpenText’s flagship, the Content Server. I have a lot of fun working with that server and I want you to share that fun with me.

Actually, I am doing projects worldwide in the Content Server area and also Trainings (Programming, Administration, Configuration, Use and Bootcamps for the Versions 9.7.1, 10, 10.5 and 16) for Opentext as external trainer.

I am based in Stuttgart, Germany and I am open for project-assistance. If you need assistance, pls feel free to ask for a quote. Inquiries can be send to my email address merz at

You’ll find the blog on the menu or by clicking here.

Have a lot of fun in the wonderful world of Content Server.
