Hi,

          This is a newbie question. I am interested to know about Java based application to make forums. I have read about JForum, but I believe it has gone obsolete (not sure). Not Enough videos about it on Youtube too. I have also found about Magnolia CMS and Alfresco being out there.

  Am I missing something here ? Is there something popular like Wordpress that I have missed ?

Thanks in advance.

It is not. It's being developed at https://sourceforge.net/projects/jforum2/, and there have been constant commits since the last release (which was in February of this year). I think it's the most widely used Java forum software, but that's hard to gauge.

Not Enough videos about it on Youtube too.


Please be kidding about the availability of video tutorials being a criterion for selecting software.

I have also found about Magnolia CMS and Alfresco being out there.


Those are CMS. They probably have a feature that allows you to post comments on a page, but that's far removed from being actual forum software.
