"I use VQWiki to keep track of the endless details involved in maintaining a JBoss server farm - And other usefull java development details and trivia. Basically I'll lookup a technique - then transfer the 'need to know' details into the wiki so that I save time the next time I have to do something. Bottom line - it saves me LOTS of time! Thanks for the hard work on the software, I really appreciate it.
This is a very nice wiki, it was easy to install on JBoss, does its job and has worked perfectly. Highly recommended." -- EzRez Software, Inc.
"I set up VQWiki in 10 minutes (including download time) and haven't had to do a single administrative task in the month that we've been using it.
This wiki implementation has proved to be just right for our needs; we initially set it up as a repository for coding examples, but we've found other great uses since then. Design discussions, previously done in email threads, have been moved to wiki pages; this gives us more durable documentation of our thought processes. It's also, in a small way, created more of a sense of community within our development team."
Simple and does what it says ... Very Quick To Install and Very quick to get Started .... thanks a lot ....
"...VQWiki is an awesome, simple product..."
"...let me say that I was really glad to see a servlet/JSP based wiki. It installed very easily and quickly, and I was up an running in no time."
"...thanks for a great drop-in product! This is just what our team needs to discuss Goals and Objectives throughout the year -- not as linear as a forum or blog, more flexible than a custom web app, and the linking is perfect."
"...I'm impressed... it's very handy and its installation is easy for even a non-developer like me..."
