JSPWiki is a feature-rich wiki software built around the standard J2EE components of Java, servlets and JSP.
JSPWiki supports all the traditional wiki features, as well as very detailed access control and security integration using JAAS.
It is primarily used for company intranets (including by IBM and Sun) and has an active developer community, including the i3G Institute of the Heilbronn University.
The software can also be used to create a blog because of its blog plugin and RSS support.
- Forms – Forms can be written using plugins. Using the form handler, which is similar to the plugin interface and the output data can then be evaluated in Java.
- Version management and search – JSPWiki saves older versions of a page and has functions to show differences (for all users) and to delete pages (for admins only). Search is performed by Lucene which also powers Mediawiki searches.
- File management – Files can be attached directly to a wiki page.
- Templates so that an administrator can alter the look and feel of a wiki.
- RSS – Recent changes can also be seen by an RSS feed.
- Access control using Java Authentication and Authorization Service (JAAS).
- Storage – Wikis can be saved as either as plain text or in any database system. The default option is for wikis to be stored as plain text files. This simplifies the installation process, so even admins with no database experience will not experience any problems.
- Wiki-level and page-level privilege control.
- Security can be applied to individual users as well as to entire groups.
- Authentication: simple XML file-based, database-based, container-managed and custom authentication modules can be used.
- Authorization: security policies and ACLs can be applied to authentication status (anonymous, cookie-based, authenticated), container roles or ad hoc wiki groups you set up yourself.
- Filters including a spam filter and an emoticon filter.
- WebDAV – JSPWiki supports the WebDAV protocol for page access. This way file attachments can be handled using a file manager directly from the operating system.
- Plugins – JSPWiki has a simple plugin system, so advanced users can extend its functionality using Java.
- Page locking to prevent editing conflicts.
- Internationalization – uses UTF-8 unicode as its standard encoding, making it work in languages such as Thai and Hebrew.
