I'm the developer of the OpenForum Wiki framework , a free, open source, self contained Wiki server that is 100% Java. It runs straight out of the box (zip file if you want to be accurate :-) )
I thought this project would be of particular interest to DZone JavaLobby members as it has a fast and efficient means of integrating existing Java code into a browser based application.
OpenForum Wiki has all the features you would expect from a Wiki:
- Simple Wiki Syntax
- Built-in search engine
- Built-in Blogging
- Page Tagging
- Page Style Templates
- Page Structure Templates
- RSS Feeds
but as well as being able to store and manage knowledge via a web browser, OpenForum Wiki can have it's capabilities and behaviour extended via a web browser just as easily.
OpenForum Wiki can be extended and tailored using a combination of languages:
- Java POJOs for more advanced applications and back end integration.
OpenForum Wiki comes with support for accessing JDBC enabled RDBMS and integration with remote web services, which makes it a powerful application framework as well as a great Wiki.
I hope you will try the latest 2.2 release. It can be downloaded from the Google Code project space .
For the next month (Feb 2008) I will be offering free one-to-one web support for any DZone members wanting to install an OpenForum Wiki.
Oh and if you like it please buy a copy of the USB stick version . Well, a guy has got to make a living :-)
