Project Description

Site to post questions and comments based on a user's profession or a topic.

Site has to be developed using JSP, JSF and/or j2ee technologies. If you don't offer this, please don't bid. I won't pay before project completed, no partial payments. If you don't agree, please don't bid.

Project consists of 8 pages developed using jsp or similar java technology. Some parts may require ajax. I prefer developing with GWT (google web toolkit) for ajax parts and/or primefaces (in case of using JSF).

HTML pages should NOT contain any images with text on it, all text must be placed over buttons using css.

Page includes a captcha before sending email.

If there is no email saved for given username, no way to recover the password.

Create link button opens a popup, reads destination url and converts selected area to a link.

Users allowed to write comments on comments, this will create a hierarchical view.

Comments/responses of the creator will be highlighted.

Every comment has its own vote buttons.

Each comment will have a permalink - showing only the entry and selected comment, parent comment hierarchy and sub-comments.

Each comment has its mouse over activated menu with "show permalink", "write a comment", "send message" and "report abuse" functionality.

Clicking a username shows the entries and comments of the selected user.
