Lucane : About

Lucane is a groupware platform written in Java and published under LGPL. It offers the usual groupware functions such as calendar, forum, instant messaging, file sharing… and may be easily extended by plugins. Lucane has an embedded database (hsqldb) but an external database (mySQL…) can be used instead of hsqldb. Users access Lucane by a Java client or a browser (IE, Mozilla…).

Thierry Uso has ported Lucane 0.7.4 on OpenVMS. Porting means testing all the functions, writing startup and shutdown procedures and creating a PCSI kit.

Lucane for OpenVMS needs Java 1.4.1-2 or later. It must be installed on an ODS5 volume if you plan to access it by a browser and not only by the Java client, otherwise it may be installed on an ODS2 or ODS5 volume.
