First off, I am excited that you guys are planning to make this product open-source, and I applaud you for it.
I am interested in integrating the chat server with an existing system. There are already members registered in the system, only registered members would have access to chat capabilities (web client integrated with our site) and the users are already authenticated before accessing chat - so the web client has to transparently log the user into the chat server and join them into a muc room.
Also, all user management functionality is already built into our existing system.
I read that you provide an API or interface to link existing authentication tables, and that seems like the obvious solution, but I couldn’'t find any documentation on this.
On a similar note (and the topic of this thread) I am trying to migrate the existing user data in my test database into the jive tables, but I couldn’'t find any documentation on what the values in the idType field of jiveID represent - they appear to be hardcoded values corresponding to the other tables, used to increment counters for unique id generation. What do these values mean?
