I’ve just started with openfire, hoping to use it with a social-community-style site I’ve been working on. I’ve got it running now so that a logged in user who launches the chat client for the first time (I’m using Jeti as an applet) will have an account automatically created, and be automatically signed in.
Now, my next challenge is getting the user’s contact lists pre-populated. People in this site have chosen to create relationships with other users, and I want to pre-populate their contact lists from these relationships. So, if Bob is friends with Mark, Dan and Sally, I want to pre-populate Bob’s contact list with Mark, Dan and Sally.
As this is still in the highly-experimental stage on my site, I’ve gone as far as adding reciprocal entries into the jiveRoster table like:
5 | bob | firstname.lastname@example.org | 3 | -1 | -1 | Dan
6 | dan | email@example.com | 3 | -1 | -1 | Bob
This, however, has not resulted in what I hoped - as the contact lists for both users when loading up Jeti are still empty. I know that I’m propery connected to the server, and can manually add users, but I need an automatic way to do this. Can anyone lead me in the right direction? I’d assume that the ‘correct’ way would be building a java class to do this instead of direct db manipulation… but I was hoping to make it as simple as possible.
