Hi, Rafael,
First I would say that JForum is very powerful and the l&f is attractive. But I constantly hear people talking about Jive. Can you please give a short comparison? Thanks!

I know one big difference, you have to pay for Jive and JForum is free.

Cool, Thanks, I have been looking for the source code for the old jive for a while now.

Now we can look at what the old version of Jive has for features and check out how they did it, and implement it into jforum.. With proper credit of course

I used to work on Jive, left the project when they went commercial (without so much as offering me a license for the work I'd done for them over the year before).

Was good fun working with them, but still angry about that...

FYI, Jive powers the Sun community forums. It was their first big commercial installation.

I've just went and saw what the jive thing is. The impression was: look and feel sucks. phpbb is intuitive and attractive, and so is JForum of course

The entire user interface is skinned rather than fixed into a single L&F.

If you check the forums at Jivesoftware, java.sun.com and silverstream (now Novell) they're all using Jive yet all look different.



This is easy to do.. all I need is a designer ;)

The harder situations are highly configurable options and stats.

When they went comercial, what did you expected from the company that owns jive?

man, US$ 7,500.00 the enterprise license..

If I could make any money from jforum I'll be very happy

Is it just me, or is there a formatting error on this page?

There was an issue, in fact. The 2.1.4 version does not have this little problem (caused by the quote tag in some very special sittuation).

Two tips:
I would happily pay about $100+ for a Jive migration utility. Jive was much cheaper previously, so I guess there are a few people who want to migrate and used to pay for software.

Likely I would also pay for a user friendly guide/book about customization/user database integration.

Anyone know if the Jive or JForum architecture is configurable to use an existing corporate LDAP or Active Directory server?

Yes. See the file WEB-INF/config/SystemGlobals.properties.
