Wiki in a JAR

I like using the huge amount of projects in sourceforge, so I have just decided to use this blog to recommend some of the projects that I use.

The first one is a great project that makes a wiki available to you by just invoking a JAR file. It is called "Wiki in a JAR" and you can find it here. Try it and do not tell me that it is hard to deploy and use. As you launch it, it will tell you in which TCP port the wiki is available.

Great to have it in your USB memory!

Thank you very much to Lamia Youssef, Maria Butrico and Dilma da Silva.
