Rafael,

Well done - a versatile yet easy-to-integrate tool! Here are my questions:

Q1: I saw the other conference where you answered another user stating that we were free to customize the application (cosmetically and functionally) as we wish, so long as we give you credt - thanks, BTW! My question is: does that apply even if we put it on a standalone network (i.e. not connected to the Internet? I still plan to have a "Powered by JForums" or the like, along with the hyperlink.

Q2: I use MySQL, but plan to migrate to Oracle. Is this easy to do?

Q3: Is the application and all of its components pure Java? I'm not talking about HTML, SQL, JavaScript, etc.; I'm concerned about other executables, DLLs, etc.

Q4: I followed the link to insanesoftware.com (from your email address), but it led to a site with only a few comics on it. Do you work for a company?

Thanks!

I generally ask people to keep credits to the project as it helps to divilgue JForum. The BSD license, which I use to distribute the package, says that, if you're going to use the source code, you should also not remove the credits to the author.

Of course that this is good sense, and I prefer to trust people instead of impose rules. If you have a project for a client and want to include JForum, but the client doesnt wants to have a link to the project site (or your company doesn't wanst that), you're free to remove it - I'll not say "no, you cannot do that" -, but I basically expect people say "Hey, we're using JForum and it great"


Q2: I use MySQL, but plan to migrate to Oracle. Is this easy to do?



Easy, as JForum (the development version) already has an "almost working" Oracle version. I say "almost" because the schema should be upgraded to the latest version and there isn't yet full tests.


Q3: Is the application and all of its components pure Java? I'm not talking about HTML, SQL, JavaScript, etc.; I'm concerned about other executables, DLLs, etc.



Pure Java. It works great with 1.4 series VM. Will not work at all under 1.3 and is likely you get some problems under 1.5 - yeah, Java does not maintain *that* backward compatibility


Q4: I followed the link to insanesoftware.com (from your email address), but it led to a site with only a few comics on it. Do you work for a company?



You mean, "insanecorp.com", right?!. Well, that's my "personal" domain, which I basically use for emails only. I have a regular job.
