I was searching for a wiki package for my company. The purpose is to bring all the information under a structured-one single-place. My selections were only two.
1. Trac – Python based
2. Media Wiki – PHP based
Unfortunately I have been given a Windows 2008 server, where Trac failed because of Python Crash. I have no time to debug it because, this is not my main stream of work. Media wiki is Good, I had previous implementations. I was thinking about some Java based wiki tools, The selection creteria is very simple – it should be like Media Wiki, the implementation should be very simple. No installshields etc!
Among the several packages listed in java-source, I have selected the JAMwiki.
Installation is a matter of importing the war, creating the database (which is not mandatory, jamwiki comes with internal HSQL DB).
