Hi there - I hope someone can help me (and please excuse my ignorance in advance!).

I am currently working for a company and we host/maintain a number of consumer facing websites. We are looking to add forum fuctionality to one of our sites and I had a few questions related to that.

- Is there any charge or licence required to use the Jforum software on commercial, consumer facing websites?

- Would our developers be able to integrate Jforum with an existing, site wide user registration/login process? ie. the site login would also enable access to post in the forum (this is all built in Java and hosted on an apache/tomcat environment)

- Our website was developed in, and runs on a Java platform which features an oracle database backend; will this setup enable us to run the Jforum software? (note that I am not particularly technical!)

Any assistance on the above queries would be a huge help.

Many thanks.

JForum is Open Source and you don't have to pay anything to use it, although you are required to keep the project's rights and link back to us.

You can use SSO for login integration. Take a look at the documentation for more information. Also, there are a lot of discussions in the forum about this topic.

I think I'll just lie down here for a second. And ponder this tiny ad:
