"The significant problems we face cannot be solved at the same level of thinking we were at when we created them." - Albert Einstein

Announcing Cernunnos

Welcome to Cernunnos: an open source Java technology that helps Java professionals be more effective in their work. Cernunnos offers significant benefits in developer productivity, time to market, and level of quality in software solutions.

Here's how it works:

  • You don't have to tell components, subsystems, or objects how to work together
  • You just have to tell them to do so
  • This simple difference reduces busywork and bulk dramatically

Cernunnos doesn't replace Spring, Apache Commons, Groovy, dom4j, or any other library or framework, but it does help technologies like these work together in your project. You can start by learning about the unique role that Cernunnos plays in software projects and how it makes Java components more pluggable.

Case Studies

These examples illustrate how Java professionals are using Cernunnos to solve their problems quickly and effectively.


The best source of information on Cernunnos is the manual, which is available online. It includes a comprehensive reference, as well as a detailed overview of core concepts. The Cernunnos Project builds the manual using its own technology from information contained in the project source files.

Some additional information is available online from the Cernunnos Wiki.

Lastly, there is a Google Group for Cernunnos discussion. If you need specific information that you don't see elsewhere, post a question and you will likely get a response in short order.


Cernunnos version 1.1.0 is now available. You can obtain this release from our Downloads Page or under Featured Downloads in the right-hand margin of this page.

You can also obtain Cernunnos from the Subversion Repository. Just checkout the Cernunnos source code and follow these instructions to build it.
