It is a very simple idea. In the file SystemGlobals.properties you will find a key named "login.authenticator", which specifies which class is responsible for handling user authenticator. The default implementation is src/net/jforum/drivers/external/DefaultLoginAuthenticator.java

Firstly i'd like to thank the guys @ jforum for making this software open source.
Now here's my question:
I am also trying to integrate this app in my website and cant find any doco on how to do so. My website built in JSP/servlets,mysql. Once I can find this out I can use the authentication tips provided earlier in this thread. [originally posted on jforum.net by rchandra]
mate, apart from the authentication integration I want to integrate the jforum application in my website such that I looks like its a part of my website. For this purpose i want to insert a header on top the forum and also change the servlet mepping etc. Only documentation that found in this regards is :
http://www.jforum.net/doc/ExecutionContext The code snippet on the page still does not explain hoto exactly pass the execution to jforum code from my class that creates the executionContext. ?
Any ideas on how can this kind of integration be done?
I am starting to think of rebuilding Jfocum web application from its source and putting it in my website after modyfig the source. [originally posted on jforum.net by rchandra]
There are a lot of topics on how integrate jForum into your existing app's look and feel.
You can do a code level integration, but basically that means that you're signing up for a lot of maintenance coding (or limited feature set) as jForum evolves and your mods need to catch up.
If you don't want to deal with that, basically, you have two main choices:
First, you can use the Header.htm and Footer.htm template files to make the "wrapper" for jforum look like your site. That's what this site does to make the main site and the jforum part of it look the same.
Second, you can think about using iframes or the like. It's not hard to trim down the templates to just show the jforum "content" pages (e.g. the white part of this page).
An alternative way to do this is to use the iframes to display any "dynamic" wrapper info. E.g. change the header/footer templates to include your apps header and footer code. [originally posted on jforum.net by monroe]
