My name is Xan Gregg, and you can contact me at daggerbox (at) pobox.com. I'm enjoying getting JSPWiki to work with mysql on Mac OS X 10.3. I'm using:

  • JSPWiki 2.0.52
  • Tomcat 4.1.24
  • MySQL 4.0.15
Had problems getting Tomcat 4 plugged into the Apache 1.3 that comes with the OS, so I use tomcat directly (port 8080). Mac installs for both MySQL and Tomcat came from http://www.serverlogistics.com/.

I've also brought my local JSPWiki on Linux, with MySQL 3.22. The only hiccup was that the Mac file system is not case-sensitive, which also applied to the MySQL table names. Otherwise, it was just a matter of copying all the files and databases.

Had a dream last night -- I went to the JSP Wiki site and the left menu was gone and header just said "JSPWiki 4". What does it mean? A glimpse of the future?

Ideas pages are a little confusing, so...

My JspWiki Wish List#

  • [{Image}]] Plugin to support wiki links in the link field. Then I could easily have an image attachment that is a thumbnail link to another image attachment that is full size.
    • Will happen shortly, I hate the current behaviour as well. --JanneJalkanen
  • Rename a page -- sometimes I choose a bad name.
  • "Ring" plugin and naming convention that is similar to Category. The presense of [{Ring name=Flower}]] would establish a category and would expand into HTML that would produce forward and backwards arrows around the ring name. Something equivalent to:
    [{Image href='Pic/back.png' link='Iris'}] [RingFlower] [{Image href='Pic/forward.png' link='Rose'}]
    Clicking on the ring name would act like a category name now, bringing up a list of the ring's members. Clicking on an arrow would move the another page in the ring. I think implementing this would be helped by suggested changed to ReferenceManager so it could track generated references.
    • There's currently a problem with ReferenceManager not talking to plugins, otherwise a good idea.
  • Comments field on the edit page that would be shown in any list of file changes.
    • Not likely to happen until we get our metadata framework properly done.
  • Faster search.
    • The search is fast, it's just that sometimes CachingProvider empties the page cache and it has to load everything again... :-)
