JForum on DB2

Hi there,

I downloaded jforum-2.1.7-b3 and have made enough changes to make it start and run on DB2. Mostly it's fairly straightforward - just a few cast statements here and there in the lower(...) SQL functions and implementing BLOB storage for the posts.

I've created the DAOs in a similar mould to the oracle ones, and everything seems to be fairly happy.

I can't say I've tested it to destruction but so far it seems happy enough. I was wondering how I could contribute this to jforum and get more eyes on it?

With IBM offering DB2 as a free platform for Linux, Unix and Windows (Express-C is only limited to 4GB RAM/up to 2 cores) I'm sure this highly performant database will become more popular - what with Java stored procs, etc. etc.

I should add I'm not really holding my hands up to be a maintainer - I've got too many projects on the go to do that, but as an initial commit, would you guys be interested?

Cheers

Michael

PS I don't work for IBM ;)

Best way to contribute code is to create a JIRA account (see Bug Tracking above/left) and submit it that way. Additions via the BB sometimes get lost in the clutter.

I don't think we will ever add it to JForum 2.x core, as JForum 3 is being developed to work with Hibernate.

Michael,

I would be interested in learning more about your changes to jforum2 to utilize DB2.
