Sorry I shouldn't really have asked, a potentially embarassing question.

Actually I'm already quite satisfied with Jforum.

Relaaax ;)
Was a nice question.. I figured out that I need to make a paper telling "Why use JForum?"

Hi does anyone know the relative merits between jforum and mvnforums?

Both are at RC3 status. They are the only opensource java based forums that I've seen.

thanks,

Mike.

There are some other open souce java forums too..

Anyway, JForum is going to its RC4, and the development cycle is more active than mvn. The source code is better too - and this point was related by many people, who used mvn for some time and give up. Or, in other words, is much more simple to work with jforum, is more simple to add new functionalities.
The layout looks better too ( ok, I just ripped it from phpbb :P ).

Well, I'm a bit suspicious to talk about jforum when the question is "which is the best", because off course I'll say jforum is better than any other forum system ( ok, not than jive... for now hehehe ).

I suggest you to get both - jforum and mvn - and try it, get your own conclusions.. this helps improving the project :-D

I can totally agree with this comment. I first was trying to use mvnforum, but the source code isn't really nice (they are using very much scriptlets in their jsp pages) and it is a real hastle to make modifications.

After a while I discovered JForum and decided to give it a try. Ik already found out that it was really easy to modify. I modified the theme of JForum to an existing phpBB theme in about 2 hours time. Once you get to understand the code, the modifications there are also pretty easy.

PRO JFORUM:

1. Less restrictive license. MvnForum requires people to give credit to myVietnam.com on their front page. http://www.mvnforum.com/mvnforum/viewthread?thread=3489#12269

2. More active, just compare the number of recent Topics, probably because JForum allows anonymous post.

3. This is the deal breaker. JForum uses Freemaker, a template engine, no messing around with spaghetti JSP code.

PRO MvmForum:

1. Supports Lucene search

And a lot of new features are added everyday

The reason I picked up jforum over mvn is:

1). Much cleaner and well organized code to work on
2). It seems jforum is a little bit faster.

3). Rafael is very responsive and the site is very active.

4). a lot of others ..

Yeah, I agreed. I tried to get Min to convert mvnForum to Hibernate, 3 years have pasted, not much has happened. Looking at the activity at mvnforum.net, Min seems to be shifting his focus on his consulting business. I don't know how committed Min is keeping mvnForum open source; it is like Jive Deja Vu. Well, at least JForum will give mvnForum some pressure to stay open source.

Rafael, I hope one day you donate this to Apache

Jean,

most of the work was done. The branch name is "Refactor_Hibernate_Lucene", but there still some work to do.

I got one people working on it last weekend, but more help is necessary.
