What kind of API are available to manipulate the forum data? Could you give a brief on this?

With 2.0, there is a set of Data Access Object interfaces with implimentations (all the *dao* packages). These are responsible for translating between application entity object and the database. The documentation is the code for there.

With 3.0 the plan is to use Hybernate as the DB interface.

Another thing to consider is that in jForum, there is persistent "DB" data and there is cached for performance (Repostitory) information. The DAO does not update the cache and vice versa. This is generally done in the task specific code.

There is no general API for creating posts, etc, from the code. But it's not that hard to use something like the Apache Common HTTPClient package to do this. You will probably want to look that the SSO implimentation to make it possible for your application to connect with the correct user security.
