Importing users question

I have installed the ImportExportUsers plugin for Openfire. I have a delmited file of user data in the order required by MYSQL, which is the backend for this Openfire installation.

So, it looks like I have two options to import user data:

  1. Import directly into the user table in MYSQL.

  2. Reformat the delimited file into a proper xml file to import using the plugin. This seems somewhat tedious and would lend itself to scripting, which I likely don’t have time to do.

So, I am wondering what others might have done who are not importing data from a previous server installation, but rather from a delimited list of user information. If you have used the import plugin, have any scripts been submitted that will do this?
