Currently the JSPWiki format pages have to be copied into a standard 
Forrest site. That is they are not pulled dynamically from the JSP wiki 
application. If you are using 0.6 then there is a sample in a fresh 
site. If you are using 0.7-dev then you will find the functionality in 
the wiki plugin

There are a number of initiatives in this direction at the moment. The 
0.8 release will be able to publish content from a number of CMSs and 
repository systems, currently being considered and experimented with is 
a Daisy plugin ( ) a Lenya plugin 
( ) and a Slide plugin 
( )

We would be more than happy to work with you on a JSPWiki plugin 
providing tighter integration than is currently possible. But we'll have 
to do that over on the dev list. In order to do this you will need 
reasonable XSLT skills and a knowledge of JSPWiki. We can help you 
design the solution.
