I want to install jforum as a sub directory

like
http://localhost/boards/
so urls will look like

http://localhost/boards/posts...
http://localhost/boards/forums...

I don't want it to be a separate webapp. What is a good way to do that?

It won't work. JForum should be in the context's root. This can be improved in the future, but currently, there is no simple solution.

I hate making the app think different.. but.. do you think i can do it by having the app writing a value for the contextPath that can be used in templates? Maybe a central place I can do that at..

do you see it possible?

As of the refactoring I'm currently doing, much probably it will be possible to put the templates, images, upload tmp and other directories into a subdiretory (WEB-INF stuff should be in the root context).

I say "probably" because I didn't tested it yet.

What do you want actually?
Just to have forum links ike your said (http://localhost/boards/posts/ etc..) or to have site and forum in a signle webapp?

In first case, if you are using Apache+Tomcat, you can have 2 webbapps, and then use apache-tomcat connector and configure alias "/boards/" to the forum webapp

Hey Rafael

From what I'm reading, I think you are saying that JForum will not run as nested webapp.

Currently I have my web-site application running on one webapp with one port, and jforum in another webapp in another port.

I want to run nest Jforum within my web-site app. That means nesting web-apps. Can this be done?

Thanks. (BTW great job and thanks for sharing your work) I have jforum running on Oracle Container For J2EE (OC4J) and an oracle 9i database. I made a couple of small changes, and will post them as soon I can get jforum finalized. Thanks again!

Well, you can put jforum in the same context of your application, but you will need to follow the directory structure - eg, the "templates" and "images" dir should be in the root directory, the "config" dir should be in the WEB-INF dir and so on.

Please share your oracle changes when possible . I want to release version 2.1.5 with it!

Hello there,

You could always use a different context but run it under the same Tomcat, in the same port. It would be just a question of modifying the Tomcat configuration to add a context for JForum.

I think that would be safer than mixing JForum with another application inside the same context, as depending on the libraries you use, you could ran into conflicts.

My 2ec,
D.
