I wish to build a message board that is similar to the JavaRanch discussion forum; the one I am posting this very message.
Could the designer/developer of the site give me an idea about the database and language are used? Did you use servlets? Do you use the Oracle or other database?
I have so many questions and wish to have guidance. Thank you in advance.

we didn't write it -- its from a company called Infopop -- the product is UBB (Ultimate Bulletin Board).
there's a commercial Java Bulletin Board out there -- Jive -- you can check that out
Lastly -- check out all the Open Source Message Board projects on SourceForge.net. There might be an open source project you can join rather than re-inventing the wheel.

The particular version uses Perl and no database. UBB has another version that uses PHP and MySQL.
