JSPWiki – a wiki software built around standard Java J2EE components, servlets and JSP. The application was originally written by Janne Jalkanen in 2001 and released under the LGPL license.

As of July 2013, JSPWiki is a top-level project (TLP) at the Apache Software Foundation. Newer (and future) releases are released under the Apache 2.0 License.

JSPWiki is used by many different companies and universities, mainly as a project wiki or knowledge management application. Sun Microsystems has integrated JSPWiki with its portal server software. Due to its easy installation, many people use it privately to organize their personal data (for example as a PIM – Personal Information Manager). You can also use it to create a blog, thanks to the availability of a blog plugin and RSS support.
