Hi guys. Before i start downloading this JForum, i have some questions and hope to recieve some response. I have seen forums mostly in PHP but was very impressed with JForum which is written in Java.
1) We are planning to integrate JForum to our fortune 500 company Website. Is there anything we have to pay in order to install JForum to our website or is it all free?
2) Is there any support for JForum(If we run into a problem in the future)
3) We are running SUN ONe Web Server and informix database. Is it going to be any problem to deploy the application using these 2 technologies?
4) We are planning to go LIVE with JForum and will try to install it on DMZ(Access through Internet). Any suggestions before we do that?
5) We use a login/password to log on to our website. I am planning to create a JForum link over there. Once clicked on the link JForum is not suppose to ask for the USerID/Password(People who directly logged in from our website). Is there a way to by pass that security to JForum?
Thanks alot for looking into it. Hope to recieve some answers soon. [originally posted on jforum.net by ironman]
1) I think it's all free... and open source
2) Community support only (free). Maybe you might find some volunteer or the programmer to give support for money
3) I think it should run on Sun One, but informix probably is not supported. You will have to try if the SQL statements will work - otherwise you may have to create your own set of SQL commands for accessing the database. Configuration for that is pretty much straight forward on how to reconfigure your database backend then. You also require a suitable connector I think
5) SSO. there's quite alot of posts which discuss this issue, some even have snipplets of cookie-sso implementation
