Drupal and Joomla is CMS or Framework?


#2

Drupal and Joomla are considered a CMS because they can be installed and ready to go virtually out of the box with a functional website and admin area to create dynamic pages. Hence the CMS attribution. Rails and Zend on the other hand are not “websites out of the box” and require you to work within the framework to create a CMS or web application.
