Hello Everyone,

First I would like to thank Rafael and his team in developing such a beautiful piece of software. And secondly I would thanks all registed users to this forum who provides technical support for jForum newbies++ like myself lol.

I was wondering if you guys specially Rafael can help me with this problem. I have a small software which uses mysql database, struts with java. Now I want to integrate jForum with my application which will look similar to gobignetwork site:

Please have a look at their site and I want the the same functionality of their form in my app.

I have login jsp with login form and action classes. The process of my registration captures much more info thn just username password and email.

What I would like is that once a user registers in my system, s/he will be automatically registed in jForum, or while using jForum the user's username will be displayed in jForum rather thn "Anonymouse" username (either retrieved from my database or jForum's database).

So is it probable for you guys to give me a step by step instruction on how I can achieve this.

Do users gets registed in jForum as well?
Is there username retrieved from my database of jforums database?

Without the already posted help section I wouldnt had the courage to post this topic. Once again i thank Rafael and every contributer to this project. The work of you guys is much much appreciated and it makes me proud to mention jForum while discussing openSource projects with my mates.

Many many thanks,

Thanks for the eulogies!

Regard your question, the best approach for you would be probably use SSO, which automatically registers an user when necessary.

Take a look at

Then, you can make a SSO implementatio to fit your needs (for example, doing authentication on your users table).
