Hello Everyone,

I was wondering which language and framework is used in developing our beloved Javaranch.
I tried to search if the same question was asked here, but could not find any link.

Also, can anyone give me some links to websites that are developed using Java / struts framework? Or some way to determine whether a particular site was developed using which language? (It's pretty obvious for some - like .php for sites developed using PHP and .aspx for sites using ASP.NET, but I could not find any such thing for sites using Java technology.)

well the this is def a java based forum (bottom of screen says its powered by JForum)...not sure about if it uses struts or not. its open source so you can download the software and see for yourself.

If you just mean the forum, it's a forked JForum (http://www.coderanch.com/t/503242/Ranch-Office/Big-Moose-server-specs#2382845)
For sites developed in Struts (2) have a look here: https://cwiki.apache.org/S2WIKI/projects-using-webwork-or-struts2.html

And be aware. Most programmers are too lazy (?) to change the standard extension but it's perfectly possible to use an PHP extension in your URL even though you are developing your site with Java + Struts. So, that's not a guarantee. Best way might be asking the site-owner itself ;-)

Thanks...

My second question is still open... Any java based website examples? I need them for a Demo of using Java on Web.

The old Ranch was coded in Perl, this new home is coded in Java.

Thanks Ulf,
That is indeed a nice read.

However, I could not find anything suitable for presentation demo purpose. I would like to include some good looking things/applications in my presentaion that are/were developed in Java.
Any suggestions?

What kind of applications are you looking for? There are literally thousands of applications developed in Java.

The frontend design of a web site (graphics, usability, information architecture etc.) is independent of the language that is used to implement the backend, so I don't think showing actual screenshots has much value. Unless the audience is easily impressed by shiny things...
