Can I server GZip files with OpenFire?

Hi,

Is it possible to serve GZip files with OpenFire? I want to send the js files of sparkweb gziped so they will be much smaller. I know it`s possible in apache using mod_deflate but I want to do it in OpenFire.

Thanks

Hi,

JM-923 is the still open issue Alex is currently working on. It should allow the admin console and all plugins to compress the output on the fly, currently this is as far as I know not possible. One may ask Jivesoftware if they did add a GZIP filter to the SparkWeb Plugin which would be possible but I don’t think that this is the case.

And it makes much more sense to create a filter once so every plugin can use it. So you may want to create a JIRA account and vote for this issue.

Can I do it myself using java or must it be part of the server?

Hi,

you can always patch the server source if you want to do it yourself using Java.
