With Eclipse, run perfectly. But i need integrate jforum with my actual project on netbeans, and i cant at least put this on a project.

Search on web and nothing, some ppl say i need the Eclipse Importer Plugin, but nothing too..

Im using NetBeans 6.1!

Ultimately, jForum is just a standard web app. The CVS and source distribution layout are not designed to match IDE's preferred layouts. So, you have two choices.

You either have to figure out how to map your IDE into the default layout (e.g. with Eclipse, defining the Workspace root as a src directory, adding in the required jars from the WEB-INF lib directory, and the like).

Or, just import the info from the source into the structure your IDE expects. I.e., Create a "WebApp" project, then inport the java source in to the src/java (or whatever) directory, the Web parts into the WebRoot (or whatever) dir, and put the WEB-INF files and libs into the location your IDE expects.

Nothing magic here, just need to understand how your IDE works for Web Application development.
