not sure if this is the right forum for this but i was wondering whether or not if anyone knew whether it was possible to make a forum in java. i am a novice java programmer and am looking for direction. any websites that directly take your hand through this process? any books? magazines? online tutorials? i'd like a similar format to this one. this is one of the coolest most informative sites out there.

will it jsut be easier to make one in ASP?
thanks so much in advanced. colin
