XWiki is a wiki software package which allows users to
collaborate with others. It offers all the features that you can find
in a typical wiki.
It is an Enterprise wiki, with many features needed for
such as Wiki, Comments, Blogs, User Rights, LDAP Authentication and PDF
The software is also a second generation wiki,
permitting the creation of applications (including structured
data-based intranet applications and scripting) within the Wiki
interface. The languages that can be
used are Velocity and Groovy.
It is written in Java
and uses an underlying relational
database management system (MySQL
or HSQLDB amongst others).
It has powerful extensibility features, using scripting,
plugins and a highly module architecture. The scripting engines allows
access to a
very robust API.
The Wiki syntax is rendered using the Radeox markup rendering
engine, which is also written in Java
and is part of the tool SnipSnap.
