OpenWP | Joomla/Wordpress Integration
While both applications share certain capabilities, (both offer varying degrees of blogtools and administrative functions) their individual strengths lie in their principal focus. Joomla! does content management very well and WordPress does blogging very well.
Marko Schmuck from JoomProsolution has released a component (application that operates within the confines of the Joomla! environment, shares resources and variables such as users, etc.,) that integrates the current release of WordPress 2.0 into the Joomla! framework.
