Eläpäs masennu, sua ja JSPWikiä tarvitaan!

No way dude, do you realise how completely beyond the grasp of any normal user Daisy is? JSPWiki is great. It has some rough edges, sure, but at its heart, it's a great system/

When reading Janne's post last Saturday, I didn't know how to react on it: whether to laugh or to cry. I still don't know. read more ... -- Steven Noels

I had a quick look at Daisy, it does indeed look very interesting. It has the appearance of being the Swiss Army knife of Wikiworld, its a CMS, a WYSIWYG editor, a Wiki on high octane. Looks cool, and it looks complicated.

On the other hand I'm a fan of JSPWiki. It's simple to install, easy to learn, easy to use and get day to day things done. And it's hard to make a mess and hurt yourself (JSPWiki, the Finnish butter knife?)

I read Steven's article and I agree, for Janne's efforts (along with a few other people) JSPWiki is pretty amazing. I'll take Steven's word that there are a boatload of people working on Daisy. I'm sure if Janne had the time and lots of other developers JSPWiki would have had all the latest features. I hope that the Daisy team gets a chance to build out what they want.

I'm a fan in using small tools that do what you want. I've watched in amazement the number of "features" that (Microsoft / Openoffice / Staroffice / etc. ) word processors have gathered in the last years. Most of which people don't use. (All of you that still use Notepad on a daily basis, I'm talking about you :-)

So good luck to Daisy, we need a all things to all people Wiki, but I'm perfectly happy with JSPWiki (*) and will still use / recommend it to others that need a simple Wiki.

(Minor rant: Do you ever think if we got all the virus / adware / crack writers and masters together and got them to spend 1 hour a day on software that would help people, what we would end up with? )

(* Well it would be *really* perfect if I could have nested plugin bodies ....)

@Foster: the current "boatload of people" working on Daisy is a single person, i.e. Bruno. But that person indeed doesn't have to care about anything else but working on Daisy. It's amazing what concentration and dedication can buy you when working on a software project. It's the challenge of us as a small (3-person) business to accomodate Bruno's concentration.

Now, what is simplicity? Simplicity is the shortest path to a solution.Ward Cunningham

For me JSPWiki is the shortest path to a solution.

I learned so much about the world of blogs and wikis throughout the last year by following Jannes blog and the JSPWiki development, that I don't knowh how to thank You, Janne, and all the others who share their knowledge by open source development and their weblogs.

Well' I guess if experience is the currency you pay for driving an open source software product (i.e. use it, take part on development) than I certainly can't afford a Ferrari. So I am a Fiesta driver, like most of the other young developers out there. And I'am perfectly happy with it. So far JSPWiki took me everywhere I want.

See you at Wikimania!

Like other comments here I love JSPWiki and decided to take a look at daisy. I installed it, played with it during 2 hours and wrote a blog entry about my feelings: http://francisoud.blogspot.com/2005/09/daisy-vs-jspwiki-winner-is.html

Feel free to add comments ;)

Good luck.

Simple is beautifull.

The jspWiki community is too fundamentalist. It is close on itself. That is cute to solitary wiki seekers. You can say to that people: "on my way or the highway".

But if you want corporations pay attention to jspwiki you, all the community, must solve your asshold attitude.

you can say to a person "we do not care about jetty", "we do not like maven, so go to hell with your suggestion about adopt it", etc, etc, etc.

the product is good, but it needs A LOT of improvements. Your attitude about the way you deal with innovation sucks. We can use or not jetty. But there are a lot of people using it and jspWiki is not compatible because you are dealing in a bad way with the request object! And you are proud of it!

Come on! that code is not even compatible with server specification!

Now we are evaluating daisy. We do not know if we will adopt it. We like jspWiki. But the community actitude sucks. They are an adoption barrier. They just are not corporation compatible.

Accept it: you just can not pretend that a corporation adopt and invest time and money helping to code a product if the product's community say "change your servers", "change your build systems", and things like that.

Pablo, I don't have the slightest clue what you are talking about. JSPWiki should run perfectly fine on Jetty (and most other containers as well, but obviously our testing ability is limited). It is also used in many, many corporations across the world. And strangest of all - I cannot simply find any requests or emails or even wiki edits, except for this rant. Perhaps it's your attitude which needs fixing, or you are mistaking JSPWiki for some other project?
