Web tier: servlets, JSP, Web frameworks: Forums software recommendation

  1. Forums software recommendation (6 messages)

    Hi,

    Can anyone recommend a forum package that will work well in a JBoss/Tomcat environment? I realize there are hundreds of packages out there and I don't have a lot of specific requirements, other than that I'd really like to be able to deploy it in JBoss so I don't have to run a different server and I'd really like it to be based on Java/JSP/J2EE so I don't have to learn to maintain something written in Perl or PHP or some other language.

    Thanks.

    Sorry I messed up the link:

    Jive Software is a well regarded forums package.

    I'll add a biased chime-in for Jive Forums. :) We think it's the best choice when you need advanced features like clustering, question workflow, reporting, and scalability. Jive Forums powers many of the largest communities on the web.

    We're releasing Jive Forums 5.0 tomorrow, in fact. It has some great new features like a themes engine. We're also releasing per-user pricing as an option, which makes it quite affordable for internal deployments.

    Regards,
    Matt

    I have used it in the past but it was ported to Struts and other standards technologies since then. It wasn't bad at all.
