Download Jetspeed-2 Distribution

Jetspeed-2 is distributed in several formats for your convenience and distributed under the Apache License, version 2.0 .

With version 2.3.1, there is a single binary distribution: an installer. From the installation program, you can choose either the demo or minimal installation. The demo option is best for seeing more features, capabilities, and demo portlet applications. The minimal option could be useful for basing your own custom-portal distribution upon, or just seeing the basic feature set of Jetspeed.

  2. Full or Demo Option - contains a Jetspeed Portal, the Jetspeed Administrative Portlets, a full demo Site Map, 10 users. Additionally, there several portlet applications including an RSS application, a Database Browser application, a Web Content application, and a set of demo portlets including Google Maps, weather portlets, and lots of programming examples to get you started.

Verify the integrity of the files

It is essential that you verify the integrity of the downloaded files using the PGP or MD5 signatures. Please read Verifying Apache Software Foundation Releases for more information on why you should verify our releases.

The PGP signatures can be verified using PGP or GPG. First download these KEYS as well as the asc signature file for the relevant distribution. Make sure you get these files from the main distribution site, rather than from a mirror. Then verify the signatures using

  % pgpk -a KEYS
  % pgpv downloaded_file.asc
  % pgp -ka KEYS
  % pgp downloaded_file.asc
  % gpg --import KEYS
  % gpg --verify downloaded_file.asc

Alternatively, you can verify the MD5 signature on the files. A unix program called md5 or md5sum is included in many unix distributions. It is also available as part of GNU Textutils. Windows users can get binary md5 programs from here, here, or here.
