Welcome to JavaRanch.

How about JForum, which is the software underlying these forums right here?

There is a list of java based open source forum software here:
http://java-source.net/open-source/forum-software

If you do not restrict yourself to java, there are many good(better!) forum software written in PHP/Perl etc.
One really good one is PunBB (written in PHP): http://punbb.informer.com/

Thank you guys for your prompt replies.

using java is not mandatory, just that if I need to customize those then I will be able to do so comfortably in Java or JSP.
Also, The forum will be used internally in our organization for various stuff...like technical...functional etc..
 
I knew that guy would be trouble! Thanks tiny ad!
