J+Social is a Joomla component which can be installed through the Joomla installer.
The component takes care of 99% of the installation needed to setup Elgg, until now a feat not easily acomplished.
Elgg has won many awards for it's ability to provide a simple and powerful social networking platform, of particular note is InfoWorld's 2008 Best Of Open Source Awards This make Elgg an ideal partner for Joomla which itself has won many awards including the Packt Publishing Best CMS award multiple times.
Combine the Best CMS along with the best Social Networking platform and you have a very powerful tool for content and social activity.
J+Social Uses an advanced Obejct/Iframe layout to bring Elgg into Joomla, this allows you to use the community surrounded by Joomla but also access the community directly without the Joomla shell.
Syncronization is handled mainly by a Joomla plugin, it handles the user registration into both systems as well as the logins, Elgg has one custom mod which fills the gap in certain scenarios for loggin in and registration.
With J+Social you can provide a seemless integration of the two platforms enabling great things with your endeavors on the World Wide Web.
