Gather requirements, design one and build it. Or use existing software. I don't really see the question in this.

I actually mean the approach to achieve this.
Dose it mean that I have to create a database and use it store and retrieve all the posts by my users all is there any other easier way out?

If you want to show a post to a user any time they click on the link for that post, then obviously you would have to store those posts somewhere.

So far your post is like "How do I build an office building?" You just can't answer that in two paragraphs or less. And you'll find that people aren't interested in trying to answer it either. The best you're going to get is what Wouter Oet already posted.

It's not simple to do. There's no JavaRanchForum class in Java...

I would do some Google searching first to see if there are any forum applications out there for JavaEE that you could use.

He didn't say he'd do your work for you. He said that's what you should do.

Or go for phpbb but it's in php but widely used and good support.
Search for phpbb in google.

Yes you can also try javabb which is in JSP,Servlets.

Jforum.net is actually back online if you want that as a solution.
