That's what jForum's SSO interfaces are for... you install jForum as it's own web-app, e.g. under webapp/jforum, and call it from your main app using SSO. Lots of posting in the forum as well as some slightly dated info in the documentation.
I have a website which is deployed to webapps/ROOT in my tomcat directory (so that I can get to it by going to http://localhost:8080/). I can't change this due to some other configurations. It must remain to be deployed here.
I want to install JForum as part of this app, so I have webapps/ROOT/jforum. I guess it needs to be within the app like this to be able to use SSO, so that the JForum classes and my app classes can communicate?
I'm thinking there is a server error because of nested webapps (mine and JForum)? Both contain WEB-INF directories with various servlet mappings. Would these be clashing? If so, how where would I install JForum to be able to talk to my webapp for SSO?
