Authentication and clustering

Is there a comparison of Openfire vs other xmpp servers available? We are currently evaluating Openfire for our xmpp solution.

  1. Need very large scalability-Is there any roadmap for clustering plugin availability? If we were to intergrate with third party cache products(like coherence or terracotta) for clustering, any clear documentation available how to do it?

  2. Is it possible to plugin custom authentication? We need authentication thru an identity token service



  1. Did you see this? http://www.igniterealtime.org/community/docs/DOC-1471

  2. Not a plugin per say, but there is Custom Auth and Hybrid Auth guides. Basically with the source code you can revise it to do anything you can code.
