Well, JForum is a popular software for creating forums. Do you want to host your own, one in your own portal, or do you want a new topic forum at JavaRanch?

Well, you're posting in the portal forum, so are you saying that you want your forum software to be wrapped up in a portlet and deployed to a portal server? What portal server are you using?

Again, google JForum for free and reliable Java based forum software. You can download it and try it out.

And most importantly, JavaRanch runs on JForum.

Thank you for the link. But what is ment by "register the JForum application within your Servlet Container, like Tomcat. This document will use the context name "jforum", but of course you can use any name you want".

And I use glassfish server.

Thank you
