You can't put JForum inside any regular folder, so it's better to integrate it to the same context of your application. It does not have many directories (templates, images, tmp and upload), so it won't be *that* mess .
You can use SSO in different contexts, but the applications will have different sessions.

Hi all. I'm starting to integrate JForum within our website. We are using Tomcat to host our JSP based website. My question is, is it better to host JForum as another context/webapp in Tomcat, or is it possible to place it inside our current webapp? If I place it inside our current webapp, I suppose I could merge the two web.xml files etc. But is it then possible to place JForum inside a subfolder of our webapp so things don't get too messy?
Also, we are going to use SSO (Single Sign-On) for our site, so when people log in, they can access the forum. If JForum is hosted as a separate webapp, can we still use our website sessions for JForum's SSO capability?
Sorry, I'm still relatively new to web development/Tomcat, so not sure about these questions.
Thanks a lot for any help! [originally posted on jforum.net by akindo]
