Questions tagged [confluence]

A wiki written in J2EE with enterprise features such as page refactorings, tight email integration, page labeling, and RSS feeds. Integrates with Jira and other Atlassian tools. For collaborative team communications (in-house). Limited output capabilities (no printing, but exports with difficulty to non-standard PDF and Word). Not suitable for end-user or external-facing documentation development, but great for collaborating on ideas.
