If anyone else is using the JForum2.1.5 from CVS from the tag Root_B2_1_5_LocaleExt these might help you out, some things I found and have fixed. Of course these worked for me, but might need changing tweeking to work on your own system.

- On adding forums and categories, the new additions do not appear until Jforum is re-deployed. To fix this in both /src/net/jforum/view/admin/CategoryAction and ForumAction the list() method was changed from

this.context.put("categories", DataAccessDriver.getInstance().newCategoryDAO().selectAll());


List l = DataAccessDriver.getInstance().newCategoryDAO().selectAll();
this.context.put("categories", l);

- In order to wrap our website's JSP framework around Jforum to integrate it into the site (embed the forums) I created a filter that evaluates the Jforum stuff and saves it, based on an example of how to modify output using a filter. The the JPSs can be included in the correct order around the Jforum output to correctly build the page. Just google CharArrayWrapper, as it is used in a number of Filter examples.



PrintWriter out = response.getWriter();
CharArrayWrapper wrapper = new CharArrayWrapper((HttpServletResponse)response);

chain.doFilter(request, wrapper);
String responseString = wrapper.toString();

RequestDispatcher rd1 = request.getRequestDispatcher("/JSP1.jsp");
rd1.include(request, wrapper);


RequestDispatcher rd2 = request.getRequestDispatcher("/JSP2.jsp");
rd2.include(request, wrapper);

But to get that to work, the /src/net/jforum/ gets an outputstream rather than the writer that we have overwritten in CharArrayWrapper. So to fix this we just modify to getWriter instead of getOutputStream (which it turns into a writer immedietly anyways). So change

out = new BufferedWriter(new OutputStreamWriter(response.getOutputStream(), encoding));


out = new BufferedWriter(response.getWriter());

- To display attachment images rather than have them always open up the saveas window change the following in /src/net/jforum/view/forum/PostAction in downloadAttach()



if( a.getInfo().getMimetype().equals("image/jpeg") || a.getInfo().getMimetype().equals("image/gif") ){
else if(am.isPhysicalDownloadMode(a.getInfo().getExtension().getExtensionGroupId()))


this.response.setHeader("Content-Disposition", "attachment; filename=\"" + ViewCommon.toUtf8String(a.getInfo().getRealFilename()) + "\";");


if(! (a.getInfo().getMimetype().equals("image/jpeg") || a.getInfo().getMimetype().equals("image/gif")) ){
this.response.setHeader("Content-Disposition", "attachment; filename=\"" + ViewCommon.toUtf8String(a.getInfo().getRealFilename()) + "\";");

- Also the bookmark js script does not work in that version as the reference to the /templates/default/js/utils.js has been removed from post_show.htm. just add <#include "js/utils.js"/> to post_show.htm at the top
