I am currently evaluating various wiki engines. JSPWiki seems to be quite promising.

Here are some annotations/observations I have made in the past few weeks:

  1. There are some kind of DNS queries delaying the display of JSPWiki. In 2.1.124, they are caused by log messages. They can't be deactivated, even if you disable the log (see this FAQ). Here is a patch-1 against 2.1.124(info) that will skip the DNS queries if the log level is set to WARN or higher.
    Another solution for the problem can be achieved by changing the file server.xml of your tomcat installation. At each connector, you have to specify enableLookups="false" in order to deactivate DNS queries. Here is an example[1].
  2. Edit-Preview-KeepEditing does not work (at least with konqueror 3.3). A similar problem is discussed in this bug report, but the problem with setting the focus into the text field is missing there. Here is a patch-2 against 2.1.124(info) that fixes these problems:
    1. javascript error in calling back
    2. error in addressing the text field inside the edit window: The code tries to access the form by number. This fails, because sometimes there are two and sometimes there are three frames visible, depending on your login status.
  3. AddComment-Preview-Save does not work (detailled description). I don't mark this as bug since the feature is not activated on JSPWiki so you probably shouldn't use AddComment anyway.

[#1] Part of server.xml:

    <!-- Define a non-SSL Coyote HTTP/1.1 Connector on port 8080 -->
    <Connector port="8080"
               maxThreads="150" minSpareThreads="25" maxSpareThreads="75"
               enableLookups="false" redirectPort="8443" acceptCount="100"
               debug="0" connectionTimeout="20000"
               disableUploadTimeout="true" />

Thanks! The preview-bf.patch is now incorporated in 2.1.125, and I'll include the other one too (though I will have to reformat it for my coding standard :-/ ). --JanneJalkanen
