I’m developing a custom web-based app in C# that utilizes the IM gateway. My question is, instead of using XML-RPC to manage registrations (it’s a bit of a pain in the butt, for me at least), am I able to simply put in the required fields into the database tables used by the plugin? I know this might break functionality in the future etc., but for now I need a quick and dirty solution to add registrations. I did notice the DB tables used by the plugins, but I’m not sure how the passwords are encrypted and such.
Edit: oops, I found a similar post: http://www.igniterealtime.org/community/message/136515 Is that still a “good” way of bypassing internal APIs and such?
