Anyone have any recomendations for a java based forum out there moderately priced that can be run live on a Websphere Portal Server with Oracle as the database?

Thanks

Ya know, I don't know of any Java/Portal forum software.

I do know a bunch of php utilities I'd use. I really hate to suggest this, and there are a million reasons not to, but a messageboard really is handled well by a web server. Ever think of hosting a message board on apache, and have the portal just clip the page. Web Clipping is pretty powerful.

It's not much of an answer, as opposed to a workaround. But it's probably what I'd do if I was in a pinch.

Cheers,
