I’'ve got a big website community with about 30k users in a MS SQL db table. I installed wildfire on the web server today and got it working just fine with the provided MS SQL db scripts. My existing website user db has properties very similar to the jiveUsers table, with usernames, passwords, and email addresses.
Ideally, I’‘d like to have an automatic jabber login for every member of the website, using the same credentials. This would let users talk to other user via chat, open up chatrooms, etc. Since new people sign up all the time, I don’‘t really want to do a one-time import. I don’‘t have LDAP currently either so I can’'t go that route.
I’'m curious what my best approach would be. Should I look for a java programmer to write a custom script to pull username/pass/email info from another table and keep everything else intact, or should I do scheduled imports once every 24 hours, or should I try converting my current user db table to LDAP and then to jabber using LDAP auth? Are there any plugins for this kind of situation?
