We have looked at JForum 2.1.8 and JForum 3, Given the status of JForum 3 (which is UNKNOWN right now), we are trying to see if we can integrate JForum 2.1.8 source code to our web application and replace all the presentation layer code for the user interface and NOT Admin interface of JForum 2.1.8 with Spring MVC (which is what we currently use for our web framework right now) and just reuse the JForum service layer. Before we get our hands dirty, Is it worth it for us to do this OR JForum is already extensible enough for us to do just that without too much refactoring of JForum code OR we should build the forum ourselves OR we should wait until the release of JForum 3 (which may not available to the public in a few years). Please advice.

Thanks much in advance for your feedback on this.

It depends of what exactly you want to do. Usually, the best way to go is to not touch JForum's core too much, but, again, it depends of what you need.

I have posted a similiar message in another forum. I guess your situation is similar to mine. I have one web application located at http://www.deals4sure.com and from this web application, the forum located at http://forum.deals4sure.com/forums/list.page is handled. By that i mean the messages are posted and topics are created programmtically, etc. There is very little need for code change other than minor changes for propertiy files (or configuration files). They work great. So just like Rafael Steil said, do not touch JForum's core too much and as a matter of fact, i did not have to touch it at all and it works very well for me.
