JBoss Wiki

We're creating a wiki for the JBoss Labs infrastructure. Rather than keeping this to ourselves, we're separating out our wiki efforts into a self contained Wiki portlet based on JSPWiki. We'll be adding and removing a bunch of functionality in JSPWiki, so now is the time for you to suggest functionality that you would like to see.

The current feature set of JBoss Wiki is:

  • Full support of the JBoss Portal 2.7.x security constructs to allow users and roles to be associated with editing and display of wiki pages and attachments within the context of a JSR 168 compliant portal.
  • Full support of wiki page histories and rollback.
  • An integrated DIFF tool.
  • A Plugin framework which allows different wiki types to be defined and associated with different plugin stacks which add contextual content to wiki pages or do translations.
  • Full support for attachments (attachment histories are pending).
  • Currently supports the JSPWiki wikitext syntax.
  • Includes a prototype search engine.
  • Simple URL support even while running within JBoss Portal so users can access wikipages by the URL pattern:


  • Mulitilanguage support
  • Full UTF-8 support
  • Email notifications

The JBoss Wiki Developers are:

  • Piergiorgio Lucidi, JBoss Wiki Lead, p.lucidi@sourcesense.com
  • Damon Sicore, JBoss Labs Lead, dsicore@jboss.org
  • Tomek Szymanski, JBoss Developer, tomasz.szymanski@jboss.org
  • Rali Genova, Community Developer, rali.genova@jboss.org
