i have an application and i just installed jforum.
Users could use the forum in a classic way.
But i want to have the possibility to enter a text in a text zone and to add it to a specific forum in jforum in another words simulate the click on "Submit" in a new post.

I would like to have the different SQL statements to simulate the submit

could somebody help me ?

JForum is a Java application. If you are on the same server, you can make calls to it in Java code. In particular, you could call the relevant DAOs which update the database.

I recommend you start by thinking about design. Do you want the user's post to show up under his id (and if so how to pass credentials) or a general one (and if so how to secure against spam.)
