There is no free version of Jive anymore.
Sourceforge has two open source Java forums. One is in alpha and hasn't been updated in a year. The other has yet to release any code and hasn't been updated in months.
The last free open source Jive version was 1.2.4. It should be available somewhere on the internet. Of course it will have no support and it does have some security issues.
