Hi there,

I'm currently nearing completion of a project, written entirely in Java (JSPs and Servlets), which will soon be implemented as a web service. I am contemplating encorporating a java based newsgroup forum software to compliment the web service in an effort to providing support for the web service. The web service will be running on a Linux server.

You may be asking, "Why a Java based newsgroup forum software?" Basically, I am not as well versed with other programming languages and if possible, I'd like to keep with what I know and can tweek if necessary.

I don't know what JavaRanch is using for its newgroup forum software, but I did come across three Java Based Newgroup Forum software that are open source: eForum, Venice Web Communities System, and Yazd. There maybe more, I'm not sure.

I'd like some advise as to which is the better software to go for. I can't afford to buy any commercial software, at least not yet. I thought to go for free open source stuff first until my project gets off the ground and hopefully generates some money. I'm a supporter of open source and if there is anything out there that is worth keeping, I would want to do that.

Just need someone to steer me in the right direction. That is, someone with some background experience with dealing with the various newsgroup software that are out there.

Alan
