Is there a reason why JForum is not distributed as a .war file? Without being an expert, I beleive it could simplify installation.

(There is, of course, the issue of previous local changes that should be preserved on re-installation of e.g. a new version. Putting all such things in a 'profile' is a step in the right direction. What's the theory on this issue?)

Cheers,
Per

Well, to .war or not, the installation is easy anyway. The only difference on using the .war file is that you wouldn't need to unpack the files, since the container will do it for you.

But is unlikely I'll change the distritution method to .war, since is very common to get JForum running in the same context of other applications, which then makes the war just another step to do by hand.

Resuming: I don't think that using .war files will increase the "facility" term.
