Feature Questions (or community systems in general)

Hey All,

I'm considering JForum for the heart of a community system, and I had some questions if someone could answer them.

1. Oracle support, any time soon? Would significant portions need to be rewritten or is it ANSI sql?
2. I don't see any 3rd party caching system in the lib,
what's the internal cache like, flexible?

In general I'm researching community systems, and forums I guess are one of the available options. This seems great though, It feels very phpBB, which puts most web forum users at ease.

Has anyone else looked at/evaluated any Java blogger/wiki/forum software? If so, who are the major players? Beyond complete community projects, is there a community toolkit available that I might have missed somewhere?

Hi,

Oracle support is 90% complete - some queries need to be revised and other made. With a little effor, it can run fine.

Cache is all done with no external libs, when running in local mode (aka, non replicated cache, which then it's used JBossCache). it is very flexible, so you can plug your own cache engine, for example.

hi Rafael Steil,

When will the support for oracle be ready? We at foothill college integrating the JForum with sakai framework. We are planning to release the initial integration of Jfroum with sakai soon.
