Extended MUC plugin

He there,

I’‘d like to extend the MUC component to add some features to it. I would like to embed it in a plugin to avoid disrupting the development of muc, and preserve it’'s compliance with the JEP.

I would like then to extends some classes of org.jivesoftware.muc.spi.*. however, most of the interesting stuff had private visibility. Is there any reason why it would not be possible to change this to protected and extend the logics?

Out of curiosity, what extensions are you planning to implement?


Also, can you be more specific about what methods you’‘d like to see be protected. In any case, I don’'t think the MUC classes are setup such that you can plug in a different implementation. Therefore, it might be better to make a fresh plugin based on the current MUC sources?



Hi Matt,

Thanks for your answer. FYI, I’'d like to add media sharing to MUC so that people in a room could collaborate.

Let’'s say that I still want to extend muc :p. I could make this package more “extendable”, and then develop my plugin for these new sources? Then I could submit the patch to the MUC packages to make it extendable.
