JSR-170 instead of direct database

Has the idea been thrown around to use the JSR-170 Content Repository to store information rather than direct database access? Would mean you could sit JForum on top of a Jackrabbit or Alfresco repository (or any other JSR-170 compliant repo).

No, I don't think this has been discussed. And I don't think this will be considered for version 3 either. I've read the spec, and it looks ok. But I will not consider using it until I see the _huge_ benefits of doing so.

Hibernate is implemented in version 3 together with a list of other packages. I think that will do for now.

Hi,

It sounds like this is not something you are going to be doing in version 3.0, but its certainly worth thinking about for the future.

Even if JSR-170 is not the right interface to be using, the benifits of using a content management system to hold the content of the forum could be very tangable.

Alfresco features you may be able to use include:

* Full text searching powered by luecene
* Version control
* Transformation of content into other formats
* The built in freemarker and JavaScript functionality

I could go on and on, but I'll spare you

I just think that a good forum, built on top of a good content management system could provide a new generation of forum software that could offer something that is not currently available.

Cheers,

Roy

I do not disagree. But there are a lot of other issues to think about

* DB-support++
* Simplicity
* Requirements
* Testing
* Stability

We will certenly be watching these projects. But for now I don't think this will be consideres for 3. But maybe Rafael disagrees

Hey Roy,

first let me state that it's great to have you guys from Alfresco looking at JForum.

I second Lazee that for JForum 3 we're going with Hibernate 3 & company, but we'd love to discuss ways of integrating JForum to other products.

1. please use the hibernate3 annotations! - what will be the migration criteria from 2.x?
2. please stick to WAR file deployment. Entity beans rock... The dependancy on glassfish/jboss is a bit of a drag. I deploy my WAR files manually using embedded tomcat.
3. Been messing with Jackrabbit! It rocks... Why Alfresco? not sure what it has to offer over the others.

Hi Folks,

I think I might be a bit late with this suggestion, but have you considered the jboss seam framework ? We have used it on some of our projects and I think it would be well suited to forum software.

Take a look at http://www.jboss.com/products/seam.

To get the best from it you really need to go down the facelets / jsf route though & it sounds like you've ruled that out.

You never know, JBoss / Redhat might help you out with the development as they are already using JForum on jboss.com:

I have looked at, and used seam. It is a great route for projects that use Session Beans with annotations!

Good to know JBoss is using JForums... It was a question in the back of my mind. ie: phpbb2? jforum? their own homegrown? There is no reference I could find, on the jboss site, referring to the using jforums.

* JForum guys.. I looked at vraptor2 .. cool looking project (that I had not yet heard of) that gives seam like abilities without the ties to ejbs.

We do use hibernate3 annotations. We will work hard on migration scripts and documentation. We haven't descided all new features and changes yet, so we can't give you any more concrete information.

We will stick to WAR-file deployment, yes. The goal is that JForum should be a n easy-install experience on all application servers that matters.

Me neither, so people would have to fill me in on that.
