Welcome to JavaRanch!

What do you mean by it "doesn't have compatibility with NetBeans"? It's a web app like any other. And if you're developing a forum using JSP and servlets, what are you doing with JForum? It uses an MVC framework already.

What specifically are you trying to do, and how are you trying to do it?

actually what i am trying to do is ....

I am working on a project which is completely designed in jsp and servlets. forms form one of the part of it. Since the project was totally designed in netbeans i hoped of importing the jforums into netbeans but failed to do so. it is actually not working.

Please see ItDoesntWorkIsUseless and TellTheDetails (those are links). There's no (technical) reason why it wouldn't run in NetBeans--it's a web app like any other.

It's important to make sure that JForum fits in to your application's larger design: it is its own application, has its own requirements, its own database layout, etc.
