I need to customize JForum a little bit.

Done
1. I have downloaded JForum src
2. I have extracted JForum
3. I have imported into Eclipse Project
4. I have done the modification inside JForum

JForum package was extracted and copied into Tomcat folder to make it run.

How to deploy it back? I only understand generating WAR from Eclipse while JForum has its structural with classes inside not WAR.

Thanks in advance

Welcome to JavaRanch.

while JForum has its structural with classes inside not WAR.



What do you mean by that? I see no principal reason why you should not be able to deploy a war file. In fact, that is the shape it comes in if you're using the fork at https://code.google.com/p/jforum2/ - which you should, it contains many improvement over the original branch at http://jforum.net/.

Hi Ulf Dittmer,

I did not notice about JForum2. But I was questioning about JForum at jforum.net

It does not come as WAR package.

Thanks

OK, but this still applies:

Thanks Ulf Dittmer,

But anyway I figured it out.

We must convert JForum into Maven Project inside Eclipse to be able to build and compile.

I found this useful link
