DiscussIt is a Web program written in Java (a servlet) for Novell serversthat allows Web-based discussion, file upload and distributed fileediting/versioning, together with NDS-based access control. Sinceadministration can be done via Web interface, the goal is to create aself-maintained internet forum.
Discussion articles and files are stored in directories on the server filesystem. All information needed for DiscussIt functionality is stored infile properties and NDS user or NDS group rights. Therefore, no NDS schemeextensions and no databases are necessary.
