Description

RePol – Repository Policy Generator is an open-source web application that guides users through the process of defining policies for repositories and web-based services. It helps in defining and maintaining comprehensive and clear repository and privacy policies. Generated privacy policies are suitable for any kind of service. RePol uses a step-by-step wizard and self-explanatory forms to guide users through the process. By choosing options in a form, users shape a policy document with predefined policy clauses formulated in line with the current best practice. The resulting policy document may be downloaded as an XML file, additionally customized, and integrated into the service or repository. The collected data and the key elements of the generated policy are provided in a machine-readable format. This allows for an automated interpretation of created policies and extraction of repository-level metadata for inclusion in registries, catalogues and various operational and data discovery tools. The resulting policy document may be downloaded, additionally edited, and integrated into a repository.

The main purpose of this extensible web application is to generate policies for repositories, but it can be configured to generate any other type of document, due to the versatile nature of its configurable forms and FreeMarker templates.

RePol is a Java web application (using EE Web API 7.0) built upon Java Server Faces 2.2 framework, with PrimeFaces 7 components. It generates documents using FreeMarker 2.3 library.
