qwiki = wiki web app

Brein Matturro Profile: Brein Matturro

Using Java-based wiki software, I’ve helped create some qwiki apps ( Java Web apps ) that are buillt for less than 20% the cost of traditional Web apps in Java or ASP.  The key is finding wiki software that supports a normal set of security options and leverages Java’s stronger multi-platform support with very high integration. In a Java wiki you can easily call and execute RPG code using IBM’s free Java toolkit or DB2/400 stored procedures for example. I can run my Java Web apps in WebSphere or Tomcat on System i or other servers as needed.

There are many more benefits to using a Java wiki as the foundation of a Web app.. Has anyone else taken this new approach? It’s not something IBM and Microsoft look at because they don’t have the technology or the tools and it competes with their existing licensed tool sets. On the other hand, Sun ships integrated wiki tools in their portal server because of the productivity.
